Fifty Foot Hose - 1968 - Cauldron


Fifty Foot Hose: "Cauldron"
Limelight, 1968
(Experimental/Psych)

DOWNLOAD (95.66 MB)

This album is one of a kind. It is a very experimental record which utilized the growing technology of synthesizers. There are very few dull moments on this album, as it seems one sound is always building up to another sound. Acidic guitar riffs begin the track "Red The Sign Post" and it builds into a psychedelic extravaganza. The song "Rose" seems like a documentation of jazz musicians playing in outer space. This is possibly the greatest record to completely lose your mind to. ***The last five tracks of this album are bonuses that were added onto the CD re-release.

that would explain why the last five tracks are so out of place! i finally got a chance to spin this today, and this whole record is pretty damn solid, and i'm sure it will grow on me. it hit the spot today, man.

my favorite track was 'if not this time'- easily...both versions of it.

Hi John, thanks for sharing this early synth beast. But divshare has killed the link - re-upload? Meanwhile you may want to get some other vintage oscillations from my blog. Best, Adam Eleven

This is one of THE great albums. Once you start listening to it you just have to stay to the end. Then I'm tempted to start all over again. Quality.

Thank you!!! I recently just heard of the group from an all music blog. I then did a search to see if I could find it on lp. To my luck, it was reissued on vinyl a few years ago. Score! While I'm waiting for my lp to come, this will be a nice treat so I can get into it.
Thanks again.

Thank you for posting this classic. Man I love that guitar riff from "If Not This Time," which I first heard on KXLU here in Los Angeles several months ago. Now I'm falling in love with the rest of this album.

Some Fifty Foot Hose members play in Kwisp. The Hose founder, Cork Marchesci, plays his electronics on a few tracks.

How do I download this album? Will it be for free? You're right, this album is one of a kind, even if it was an experimental record! Hope you will answer all my questions! I need to leave now... as my dissertation can't wait. Best regards,
