For many, 1967's Electric Music For The Mind And Body is the premier, defining moment when the attitude and philosophies of the emergent 1960s counter-culture were actually matched by what was in the grooves. The rabble-rousing element of much of Country Joe & the Fish's subsequent career – the "Fish Cheer," Woodstock and their sardonic musical stance – obscured the fact that the group was responsible for some of the most evocative and striking sounds associated not just with their native Bay Area, but the entire late-60s rock movement. More importantly, over the years, Electric Music has transcended the era of its creation and remains a truly bold and powerful musical statement. The linchpin release finds the group combining engaging melodies with sharp, satirical lyrics encompassing different facets of the counterculture including drugs ("Bass Strings"), sex ("Porpoise Mouth") and politics ("Superbird"). 180g vinyl reissue in stereo.
