PEOPLE, Ceremony : Buddha meet rock (1971, JapRock)


Thanks to a reader, here is the link where you can find many JapRock albums described in Julian Cope's JapRockSampler book - have I said that it's by far not as good as his KrautrockSampler, maybe because the music in the 70s is certainly not as creative in Japan as in Germany...
Anyway, I wanted to share here my favourite japrock album, the only album recorded by PEOPLE.
It cannot be described better than its title does : "Buddha meet Rock". Very pleasant, very well recorded, very peaceful and charming, on the whole completely meditative, rather dark and mysterious. In one word : beautiful.
To compare with a german band : it's probably somewhere between AGITATION DREE's "Malesh" (yet more peaceful) and YATHA SIDDHRA's "A meditation mass" (but more various).
And here it is.

My friend, I want to say a big THANK YOU for introducing me to so much fantastic music. I was only aware of Can and Amon Duul II before but now I'm going through your Top 50 Krautrock albums and discovering how much I've been missing.

Great stuff!

Thanks my friends for your comments, i confess I donnot have much time these days to post more, and as I've written it, i don't have much more to share.
About the request : I don't have anything you ask, except some Xhol. I don't like it and suspect they are a bit overrated... no?

Si tu as le temps de mettre un Xhol, j'aimerai bien écouter. Je sais que NWW a fait un hommage et je suis assez intrigué pour l'original...

ok pour Xhol - mais c'est principalement du JazzRock.
Bientôt donc.

Ikeda / Nicolai : as soon as I can.

Pour les curieux de Xhol, je conseille Motherfuckers GMBH & Co KG qui a mon sens est leur meilleur album. Mi planant / Mi jazz,krautrock.
