Lucifer Rising is Bobby Beausoleil's 1975 soundtrack to the Kenneth Anger film (released in 1980) of the same name. Anger commissioned Beausoleil to complete the score after Jimmy Page's initial efforts proved unsatisfactory. Of course, Beausoleil was (and is) in prison for murder at the time. Lacking access to a regular recording studio, he actually built much of the equipment used for the session himself and relied on other prisoners for his backing musicians. The results are stunning. Lucifer Rising remains a landmark film score and an instrumental showcase for Beausoleil's evocative soaring guitar work.

The Lucifer Rising Suite as a whole is enjoyable, as it includes a great deal of additional music produced during these sessions. Divided into four discs for the cd release, the first three contain the extra session tracks, while the fourth is the finished album. While the quality of the material varies, it offers a fascinating glimpse into Beausoleil's exploration of different musical ideas. And for the amount of music, the price of the mp3 album is a bargain. I've come to regard this as an essential piece of my music collection.

WHY DIDN'T I BUY THIS EARLIER IN MY LIFE? I have always been under the misconception that Bobby played in the Final Solution (wrong) and then went to LA to achieve notoriety. I had no idea that A. He was the founder of Orkustra, whom I had read vague references to throughout the years and B. I had no idea of the existence of "Lucifer Rising" and thus his connection with it. I am a pscyh freak and have a extensive collection...even Ya Ho Wa 13, so I decided once I read about this collection and Bobby's "career" that it was a "must have." It is. If you like San Francisc styled psychedelia, than this is for you. It isn't rock per se, it isn't jazz either, but some strange Lovecraftian hybrid. There is nothing by Orkustra on this (too bad), but you do get to hear the original "Lucifer Rising" from 1967, which to some degree reminds one of later Soft Machine (Thirds) combined with early Tangerine Dream ("Atum"). In all, discs 1,3 and 4 are stupendous. Disc 2 doesn't do anything for me...it's just standard sounding blues and really isn't anything special to my taste. But the rest? TOTAL MIND DESTRUCTION or TOTAL ASCENDANCE of CONSCIOUSNESS or BOTH? LOL. Bloody brilliant work. BUY IT. If you love psychedelia you must have this and the Orkustra lp set.
