"..housed inside a 144-page book reproducing the original engravings by Juan Arkotxa, 64 of which are full color. Strictly limited edition: 500. Sold out in Spain, last copies. First reissue of this fabulous masterpiece of European and acid folk, originally released in 1977. Including for the first time a full reproduction of astonishing Book of Am engravings as an accompanying book, and the previously unreleased "Part II" disc." - FE. "We are proud to announce the reissue of the legendary The Book Of Am, a unique combination of recordings and artwork which stands up as an enduring testament of the fertile hippie scene which flourished in the Baleric islands during the seventies. Known to record collectors and psych/folk/prog music aficionados alike, this multicultural band formed in the island of Mallorca in the mid-70s and recorded a beautiful (and outrageously scarce) album which has gained cult status as years passed by. The Book Of Am was originally devised as a beautifully illustrated book focused on various world folklore and traditions, coupled with 4 LPs which would represent a musical. This (never completed) 4LP set would correspond to the four phases of day (Dawn, Morning, Afternoon, Night). Only the first of these records (Morning) would eventually see the light of day in a tiny private pressing which changes hands nowadays for obscene amounts of money. So now, alongside the reissue of the original Book Of Am album were very proud to present the first-ever release of the previously unissued Part II of the The Book Of Am, which leader Juan Arkotxa remastered recently from the original master tapes. Both albums are housed inside a 144-page book reproducing the original engravings by Juan Arkotxa, 64 of which are full color. Never released back in the day due to its high production costs, now, the central part of the The Book Of Am, can finally see the light of day. A round-the-world trip through the folklore, legends, lore and cosmogonies of some of the worlds cultures, from ancient Egypt to Celtic traditions." - Wah Wah.

Artist: BOOK OF AM, THE
Title: The Book of AM Parts III & IV
Format: Double LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $48.00
"Juan Arkotxa, Leslie McKenzie, and Carmeta Mansilla have joined forces with Will Z (of Cosmic Trip Machine fame) to finish the great project that was The Book of Am. As you may know, a few years ago Wah Wah released the book including the only LP that was originally released back in the seventies (part I) plus adding an extra LP (part II) which had been recorded in the same era while the book was being created, but the book itself hadnt been previously released. Now, thanks to the help of Will Z, original Can Am des Puig residents Leslie and Juan, plus original contributor Carmeta have joined forces again to finish what was left unfinished. The main body of parts III and IV is formed by those songs written back in 1970s Ibiza and Mallorca that never reached the recording stage. Will Z has also written part of the music, and has helped with all arrangements having in mind the sound of the original sessions and respecting the musical feel and spirit of the original Book Of Am recordings. It sounds amazing and will not disappoint fans of parts I and II. Lovers of the previous Book of Am know what to expect and will not be disappointed! Comes in a gatefold sleeve with cloth-like stamped spine that includes the lyrics to the songs and some photos and reproductions of original engravings by Leslie and Juan." -Wah Wah.
