Biography

There is more than one artist named Born Again:

1) Czech metalcore band from Jindrichiv Hradec. myspace.com/6bornagain6

2) Born Again was an American psychedelic rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Originally from Marin County in northern California and calling themselves Red Mountain, a demo tape they recorded at Sierra Sound Labs in Berkeley attracted the attention of producer Roger Dollarhide (Randy California’s Kapt. Kopter And The Fabulous Twirly Birds) who invited them to relocate to Los Angeles. In late 1969 and early 1970, several recording sessions took place at SunWest Studios in Hollywood that appear for the first time on the Rockadelic collection. In addition, guitarist Larry Otis contributed music to an original movie soundtrack in 1970, The Velvet Vampire, and a piece from this movie also figures on the Born Again Pagan collection. The album concludes with three demo tracks from 1971 by the ‘C’ line-up, recorded in San Francisco.

While the music produced by the various line-ups of the group varies enough in style as to defy categorisation, there are no weak moments on this album. Sullivan’s snarling lead vocal technique will appeal to fans of both ’60s and ’70s music, and no one will find fault with Otis’ remarkable command of the guitar (Dollarhide introduced Otis to Ike Turner as “the best rock guitar player in the world”, and Turner apparently agreed - hiring Otis for the Ike and Tina Turner Revue in 1974).
