Title: The Lucifer Rising Suite
Format: 4LP Boxset
Label: Anja Offensive
Country: USA
Price: $67.00
"Now, for the first time, all of the music composed for the soundtrack project has been compiled into a single public release. The Lucifer Rising Suite begins with the 1967 version of the soundtrack and continues through a logical sequence of the recordings made in the years spanning 1976-79. With respect to the latter, the original master tapes were mined for music that had not been heard by anyone in nearly three decades. The newly unearthed recordings were then restored, cleaned up and combined with those previously released to make the anthology as complete as possible. The compositions that comprise the Suite are sequenced in an order that tells a story, after a fashion. It is a story that may be impossible to tell in a strictly literary manner, one that -- like a mirrors reflection into another -- is both personal and allegorical. A complete anthology of the recordings made for the Lucifer Rising motion picture soundtrack by Bobby Beausoleil with The Freedom Orchestra and The Magick Powerhouse Of Oz. This fully authorized and definitive release will include: - Remastered recordings spanning 11 years, from the 67 recording to the Tracy Prison recordings of 78. - 4 full-length LPs worth of Lucifer Rising material with half being never-before-heard sessions personally selected by Bobby BeauSoleil. - 9 new pieces of art from Bobby: 8 record sleeve panels and one 2 x 3 poster. - 2 posters: one by Bobby BeauSoleil and one by Dennis Dread. - A much-extended version of the Fallen Angel Blues piece by Bobby that originally appeared in the Kenneth Anger DVD set. - Hymns to the Solar Temple -- impressions on a visit to Bobby at the Oregon Correctional Facility in Pendleton, Oregon by Dennis Dread. - The Saga of a Soundtrack by Michael Moynihan. - Art from Dennis Dread for the back of the LP box, also to be included as a 2 x 2 poster. - Art from Dennis Dread for the front lid of the box which will provide a window into the works of Bobbys to be found within. Remastered by Robert Ferbrache, well known for his work with Blood Axis, 16 Horsepower and others. All art has been created specifically for this release." - Anja.

Title: Lucifer Rising
Format: LP
Label: Friends and Family
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"In 1966, Bobby Beausoleil is performing music in San Francisco and meets Kenneth Anger. Anger and Bobby agree to work together. Some music is made, some darkness befalls the scene, the two fall out. Forward to 1969, the year that Bobby ends up in prison. Anger moves ahead and in 1972 he turns to Jimmy Page to take over making the music for his film, but this pairing is doomed to fail. Ultimately the original Lucifer, Bobby, reconnects with Kenneth. Things coalesce in 1976 when, with the consent of the prison authorities, Bobby records the Lucifer Rising music with other inmates of the facilities of Tracy, CA. Its not until 1980 that the originally pressing on LP of Lucifer Rising in an edition of 1000 copies.

Title: Mantra
Format: LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"A prison is a noisy place. The clanging of bells announcing the prison routine, the whir and ratcheting, banging and slamming of electric gates and mechanical metal doors, the ebb and flow of human vocalizations as hundreds of people caged against their will respond to their conditions in myriad ways -- to express their loneliness, or discontent, or rage, or insanity, or merely to cheer or boo a play in a football game on television -- punctuated by the shouts of guards who must enforce their authority to maintain what passes for order in such places. All of this and more is amplified within the confines of reverberant concrete walls, conspiring to make it difficult to find, much less preserve, ones peace of mind. I composed Mantra: soundscapes for meditation in response to several requests from some of my fellow prisoners. I was asked to create some gentle music that they could listen to on their personal cassette players as an aid in practicing meditation and relaxation techniques widely accepted as valuable tools in the process of healing mind, body and spirit. The challenge was to produce a musical composition that would help to mask the noise of the environment without being intrusive or demanding too much of the listeners attention, while incorporating combinations of tones and textures that may aid an individual in achieving a relaxed, meditative state of consciousness. By all reports, including my own experience, Mantra succeeds in its intended mission. As environmental music, it also seems to work well as a focusing agent when doing some types of creative work, or when reading, and to enhance the restfulness of sleep when set to play continuously through the night at low volume. You may find other uses for it as well. For all I know, it may help plants to grow more healthy, or soothe a teething baby. We are all doing time in one way or another, and the stresses of day to day life make it imperative that we find ways to generate harmony within ourselves from time to time. I hope that Mantra will serve you in this regard as well as it has served some of my friends in prison. Peace, Bobby BeauSoleil." - Qbico
