Adapted from a story by Truman Capote ("In Cold Blood"), the world of the prison convict is open to the viewer. As the story develops, one thing becomes clear. As in the outside world, there is a "system"; and just as on the outside, there is accommodation, honesty, cynicism, violence and all the other factors that make up our society.
A debut album from this underrated American psychedelic band was released in 1969 on RCA Victor and combined the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe with grandiose progressive rock arrangements. This brilliantly recorded album was very diverse, but consisted mostly of dark, atmospheric and usually short tracks based on strong Hammond organ-guitar interplay and rich vocal harmonies. Glass Prism music may be described as early hard-progressive rock crossed with ambitious psychedelic pop like early Procol Harum, Vanilla Fudge, Ford Theatre and Bloomsbury People. In 1970 the band released their second and musically less successful LP On Joy And Sorrow. This CD edition has been carefully remastered from the original, analogue source and sounds great!
