INCLUDES NEVER BEFORE ISSUED INSTRUMENTALS!
COMES WITH A 32-PAGE BOOKLET!
New audiophile transfer directly from Axelrods original EQed master tapes.
Earth Rot is visionary composer/arranger/producer David Axelrods third album, and the last of his Capitol trilogy.
Recorded as a concept album about the decrepit state of the environment in 1970 Los Angeles, and scheduled for
release on the first Earth Day, it features choral vocals and marks a departure for Axelrods signature sound, which
would take on a jazzier feel in the 1970s.
This definitive version of Earth Rot, overseen by Now-Agains Eothen Alapatt in conjunction with Axelrods Estate,
fulfills a request Axelrod made while alive to see the instrumentals of this album, never before released, issued.
They see release here as the second half of a deluxe CD reissue.
This is an audiophile reissue, with the vocal version transferred directly from Axelrods original master tapes at
Capitol Records by Ron McMaster. The master was approved by Axelrods son Michael, who adapted ancient lyrics
for the album in one of three collaborative projects he did with his father.
Contains a 32 page booklet that delves into Axelrods incredible life and music, replete with never before published
photos and an interview.
There are very few people who see the Grand Picture of the Universe and understand the Nothingness that it all
comes from. There are even fewer who can express these ideas through music – David could do it all.
