This reissue of the legendary Westcoast acid psych masterpiece was recorded in Hollywood in 1969, and originally released on Chartmaker Records. Goldenrod is not just the backing band of Darius – it is Ben Benay, Jerry Scheff and Toxey French who all were involved into several major projects and performed with Elvis Presley, 5th Dimension, The Doors, Ventures to name a few.

On this album they let it freewheelin´ go – just caring about their passion to create a magic sound in their 4 long instrumental jams: DESCENT OF THE CYCLOPEANS/ KARMIC DREAM SEQUENCE/ THE GATOR SOCIETY/ STANDING OVALUATION – those satisfy through intense breaks and passionate straight-forward rock with ultimate Westcoast guitarwork by Ben Benay. Contains a very interesting bandstory + photos! On CD you´ll get the different mono-mix of the 4 album tunes, freaked out 79 mins - extended jamming on highest level of proficiency!
