Black Editions presents the deluxe, first-ever vinyl edition of Acid Mothers Temple's classic self-titled first album.
Over the last 25 years no group has been more prolific or dedicated to pushing psychedelic rock to its limits than Japan's Acid Mothers Temple. Their maximalist technicolor vision was first revealed on this, their now legendary self-titled 1997 debut released by P.S.F. Records. Led by Makoto Kawabata, the album contains some of the group's most cosmic, hypnotic and over-the-top material; It kick-started and set the tone for a journey that has included countless releases and performances around the world - a freaked-out trip that continues to this day. Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. is one of the essential albums of the world's psychedelic underground.
Deluxe Edition housed in 10-color heavy tip-on gatefold jackets, featuring soft touch and spot gloss finishes and full color interior pockets. Includes full-color, spot glossed inner sleeves and a 24" x 24" full color poster.
Remastered and pressed to high quality vinyl at RTI; Digital download included.
