Out-Sider presents the first vinyl reissue of Jeffery Liberman's Synergy, originally released in 1978. The Chicago born Liberman was a guitar player in the best tradition of '70s guitar Gods like Hendrix, Trower, Clapton and Zappa. His music is the perfect mix between virtuosity and feeling, with a gift for brilliant songwriting.
Between 1975 and 1978, Liberman self-released three albums on his own Librah label which were some of the first private pressings to gain recognition amongst psych collectors in the '80s. For Synergy, his third outing, Liberman augmented his heavy guitar psych style with some cool cosmic funk, soul-jazz and A.O.R. influences. Awash in superb musicianship, psych/prog-rock flashes, acid guitar soloing, soulful vocals, occasional synths and analog keyboards, and a flowing rhythm section, it features the Balearic classic "Transformation" (compiled by Psychemagik) plus other choice cuts.
Featuring remastered sound, this reissue also includes an insert with liner notes by Klemen Breznikar (It's Psychedelic Baby) and an accompanying digital download. RIYL: Bob Smith, D.R. Hooker, Terry Brooks, Bevis Frond, Robin Trower, Cream, and Bob Desper.
