Order it immediately and count down the days until your mind will be blown. It's like Can and Black Sabbath made love and gave birth to Godzilla and instead of trashing Tokyo he just smoked out and ROCKED. Heavier than a thousand planets, tripper than if the end of of 2001 was really happening to you right now, and you really were a giant immortal baby hovering in space, and if that were true then forget Strauss, these guys would be the house band. Don't let next Thursday be another day that you've lived without hearing this.

As far as the music is concerned,I can't add anything to what's already been posted here by other reviewers - this is a brilliant album, and deserves to be owned by anyone with even a passing interest in the freeform Japanese hard rock of the late 60s and early 70s.

Unfortunately, however, it's on Pheonix Records and is therefore - like everything released by said label - a pirate, mastered from vinyl with poor sound reproduction.

My advice would be not to spend money on this CD unless you can afford the legitimate Japanese re-issue (also available on Amazon, albeit for a hefty $34.99).

If not, you're as well to download it for free off the Pirate Bay, or copy it from a friend like I did - seeing as the bandmembers aren't going to see a cent from this shoddy rip-off anyway.

I like Amazon, but I wish they'd stop stocking stuff on Radioactive / Fallout / Pheonix Records. Quite how James Plummer and co. have managed to get away with securing mainstream distribution for illegal products over such a prolonged period of time is mind-boggling.

When everybody in the west were dazed by the sounds of Black Sabbath, Depp Purple, Uriah Heep and so, in the east they were capable of rebuild this sounds and going further

A serie of bands heading by The Flower Travelling band were mixing japanese culture, psichedelia and heavy rock with a layer of mistery, angst and poetry...

This record has been a cult piece for many years, is the second of this band, they began covering their heroes in a first recording and on this everything learned is reflected.

Satori is structured in suites, above all i would sugest for first bite Satori 2nd, a song which would be the best thriller soundtrack, wich reflects how japan understood Black Sabbath. In sons as third suite japanese culture and music is very present, not making the songs boring but giving them a psichedelic style very original and enjoyable.

Now is reissued with original artwork and sleevenotes for every hard rocker delight

I never fail to be amazed at how there are still some unearthed classics out there of which I'd never even heard. I spend a lot of time looking for these classic gems, excavating amongst the weak, the derivative, the pop and the lite (and even worse--the progressive), and every so often some undiscovered heavy vintage masterpiece falls on to my radar and I'm blown away by it and amply rewarded for my efforts. It's like finding an 27 gram gold nugget after years of panning in a cold little stream. This is exactly such a glittering reward. Its actually been a few years since I've hit upon something this gargantuan. (The Fela Kuti box set was the last thing that astonished me on this level.) How can an album of this magnitude not be commonly recognized around the world? I realize that this is just one album, and not a vast body of work, but this album alone should have shot these guys into the stratosphere. This is iconic. Shepard Fairy should be doing posters of these guys and Conan O'Brien should be wearing their t-shirts. Jack Black should have included them on his Family Tree of Rock.

What I found so mesmerizing about this is the totally unique sound. There's nothing quite like it. It has a very distinctive Eastern frame-of-reference, and the Hindu-style cover art corresponds with that. But the over-the-top vocals (I was reminded of Bon Scott at points) and the pointed guitar riffs are about as Western as you can find. Overall it is an intoxicating mix. Of course I'm going to immediately buy their other albums--if they are even remotely as good they are well worth having.

The Black Sabbath references miss the point. This is like Black Sabbath only in that it is a unique sound and probably no one will ever quite replicate this distinct ambience.

This album is the grandaddy of Acid Mother's Temple. If you like this have a listen to AMTs Electric Heavyland. There are a few Travellin' Band albums kicking around, but this one is the best. Those wonderful eastern scales and melodies set the tone to time travel back almost 40 years to the heyday of free love and psychedelic delights. 5 Stars. Now go check out AMT, also from the land of the rising sun.

I first heard Flower Travellin' Band on Hawaiian underground radio in the early 70's and captured Satori on reel-to-reel. It took about five more years before I found it on vinyl LP in a Japanese department store in Honolulu. Then a space of about 30 years before I again found it on CD. Each time was sonic Nirvana. This is a superb recording, one of a kind, I'd say. Don't think twice, just order it immediately! You will not be disappointed. When you play it for your like-minded friends, I know they will want a copy (but be fair to FTB, tell them to buy one from Amazon like you did).
