Description

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Bay Area psych-rock band Country Joe & The Fish's two cornerstone 1967 titles, Electric Music For The Mind And Body and I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin-To-Die, the deluxe vinyl box set The Wave of Electrical Sound offers both LPs in their stereo and mono configurationsfour LPs in total, each pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and housed in their original jackets. A 30-minute documentary DVD on the band by David Peoples (Blade Runner, Unforgiven, 12 Monkeys) and a handful of replicated ephemera from the band's heyday rounds out the package.

For many, Electric Music For The Mind And Body is the premier, defining moment when the attitude and philosophies of the emergent '60s 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, it 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").

The band's second album, I-Feel-Like-I'm Fixin'-to-Die, followed hot on the heels of their breakout debut, but it represented a major step forward in both material and overall sound achieved by Vanguard Records' producer Sam Charters. Accessible and very much in tune with the alternative culture of the mid-60s, it quickly became one of the cornerstone releases of the new 'psychedelic rock' explosion. The album is opened and anchored by the live standard "The Fish Cheer" and famous anti-Vietnam protest song "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag."
