Limited edition red vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket of the legendary 1971 debut album by Brainticket that is widely considered a landmark psychedelic masterpiece. Brainticket is an experimental European krautrock band most active in the early 1970s, and known for it's use of exotic instruments and jazz-inspired compositions. The only constant member has been Belgian musician Joel Vandroogenbroeck. The band continued to perform concerts and release albums in the 2000s. Vandroogenbroeck grew up studying classical piano before switching to jazz. He received the Art Tatum prize as "youngest jazz pianist" at the age of fifteen, and toured around Europe and Africa including performances with the Quincy Jones Orchestra at the World Exhibition in Brussels and the RAI symphony of Rome. By the late 1960s, Vandroogenbroeck was still playing jazz but he found new inspiration in German krautrock artists Amon Düül II, Can and Tangerine Dream.
