Artist: LINNEGARS SNAKESHED, STEVE
Title: Karate Moves: The Mystical World of Karate
Format: LP
Label: GNP/Crescendo
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
“Narrated by Mike Faure, featuring the music of Steve Linnegars Snakeshed. Warehouse find of original copies of the final LP release from South African collector-underground legend Steve Linnegar. As with his two previous LPs (“Classic Epics” and “Music for Shogun”), spreading the martial arts message is paramount, and Snakeshed here provide an atmospheric backdrop (and, at times, frontispiece) to the vivid audio documentary on the mystical world of karate. It is a revelation to the layman and a great motivating vehicle for the karate student!. Those privileged souls who have already entered Snakesheds world will find the signature spacey keyboards and intricate guitarwork in abundance, and, with the help of Faures crisp and clear narrative, might learn something too!” - GNP/Crescendo.

Artist: LINNEGARS SNAKESHED, STEVE
Title: Classic Epics
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“Gatefold LP version. Steve Linnegar was an accomplished songwriter, musician, painter and martial arts disciple. A legendary figure from the South African 60s-70s underground music scene, the "hippie king of Cape Town" formed the Snakeshed band in the 70s along with top guitar-player Martin Kopelowitz and keyboardist/producer Peter Hubner. Refusing offers from some record labels who insisted they should go "commercial," they decided to record and release their first album, Classic Epics, all by themselves. Released in 1982 on their own private label, this record is one of the South African prog/psych crown jewels. Features layers of acoustic/electric guitars, Gilmour-alike guitar solos, ultra-melodic vocals, effects, and cool Tao-inspired lyrics. Culminates in the haunting 14-minute long "Desert." Remastered from the original tapes for the first time. Includes an insert with rare photos and liner notes by Aaron Milenski (Acid Archives).”- Guerssen.
