The collected recordings (1973-1977) of Indias best-known psychedelic rock ensemble, and the story behind their genesis in an extensive booklet full of rare photographs.
Now-Again Records presents an important document of Indias little know psychedelic rock period. Obsession collects a wealth of rare and unreleased psychedelic rock and funk from the various incarnations of the Atomic Forest.
The Atomic Forests mix of blistering, fuzzy rock and synth-lead funk inspired collectors the world over to fork over thousands of dollars for original copies of their solitary release, Obession 77 . Part of the interest certainly stemmed from its liberal doses of searing fuzz guitar. Part of it sprung from the oddity of it all: India, a country that had, quite literally, churned out tens of thousands of albums during psych- and hard-rocks heyday, only produced this one, lonely psychedelic album? Part of it sprung from the albums rarity: unknown for years, Obsession 77 suddenly became a top want on every global-rock collectors short-list. Now, packaged in a paste on CD Sleeve with O-Card, this ungodly fusion of funk and psychedelia along with Egons extensive liner notes and annotation is available to all.
