24. Recital, Kokkyou Junreika [Border Pilgrim Songs] - J. A. シーザー / J.A. Caesar [1973]

In his early 70s psycho-pomp, Julius Arnest Caesar (J.A. Seazer / J.A. Ceaser) conjured some unique concoctions on behalf of Shuji Terayama’s Tenjo Sajiki Theatre Company. An experimental blend of kosmische rock, dappled with Noh stylings and witchy women choruses for added weirdness. Not too preposterously seen as distant cousin to ISB’s “U” – a surreal parable in song and dance, as performed by Black Sabbath.

[Bonus in Comments: "Music that evokes the Khanate Golden Horde invading eastern Turkey, anyone? Yes, please."]

Been a massive fan of Shuji Terayama for eons, but for some inexplicable reason, I never took the trouble to check out who made his amazing soundtracks, so many thanks for this, its "awesome" in the true sense of the word: sacred, profane and cosmic spooky, I can see Julius Arnest Caesar becoming an expensive obsession ;)

Many thanks good sir.
