Great French folk-psych record!
This international group formed, lived as a commune on the Spanish island of Deya in the island of Mallorca & were acquaintances of Daevid Allen and Gilly Smith. their album is an attractive journey into the more mystical realms of hippie-folk, somewhere between Robin Williamson, Daevid Allen and some tracks by the German band Popol Vuh. Many songs have a strong Eastern touch with tamboura, acoustic guitar, flute and male/female vocals. This album will satisfy anyardent fan of psych-folk! Some members of Book Of Am might have helped out on Daevid Allen's solo albums from this period. Taken from "Scented Gardens Of The Mind" by Dag Erik Asbjornsen
The Book Of Am is a unique combination of recordings and artwork, a testament of the hippie scene which flourished in the Baleric islands during the 70's. Known to record collectors and psych/folk/prog music aficionados, this multicultural project recorded a beautiful album which has gained cult status as years passed by. ..
