Japan, 1971, heavy psych
Flower Travellin’ Band – Satori: Satori comes in five stages. Stage 1: Hearkening to the distant yelling on the mountaintops. Stage 2: Understanding through the music and words that the universe is a snake eating its own tail. Stage 3: Knowing and accepting the above frees one to rock out, to expand. Stage 4: Don’t forget where you came from, and pay your respects at the Altar of the Blues. Stage 5: A return to the mountain, where we all yell along with our bearded, big-earlobed guides.
