Bruce Palmer - The Cycle Is Complete (1971)

A true masterpiece of free-form American psychedelia, period. Also featuring members of Kaleidoscope (USA).

«At the end of the 1960s, the rock landscape was changing so radically, in manners so counter to the way things had been done just a few years previously, that many albums found their way to major label release that could have never been given the green light in any other era. One of the strangest of those is Bruce Palmer’s The Cycle Is Complete, the sole solo album by Buffalo Springfield’s original bass player. The record was nothing if not uncompromising, consisting of four largely instrumental, improvised-sounding psychedelic-jazz-world fusion pieces that bore little relation to conventional rock music, or even to conventional structured songs.» (From Richie Unterberger’s liner notes, for the full review click here)

Dedicated to the memory of Bruce Palmer.

Great post. Great blog. If you like this you should definitely check out "Paêbirú" by "Lula Côrtes & Zé Ramalho". It is like a brazilian counterpart to this. Not as earnest maybe, but more lively and wild.
