Album Notes
Premium vinyl and heavy cardboard sleeve, with new cover art by the Russian art collective Doping-Pong. Remastered.

This commemorative 40th Anniversary reissue on the Ajna label is faithful to the artist's original conception, restored to a seamless whole by returning to the nascent mix tape and giving it a fresh mastering for the ultimate in audio fidelity.

Forty years or so ago Bobby BeauSoleil conceived of the music for Lucifer Rising as a single continuous piece of music, a 45-minute rock symphony. Despite the rigors and challenges imposed by his imprisonment he delivered his psychedelic opus, fully realized, and presented it as a complete work on LP in 1979.
