Editorial Reviews

(2-CD set) At the very zenith of Psychedelia and Christianity stands the imposing figure of Brother John Rydgren. An ordained pastor of the American Lutheran Church, Rydgren laid out a heady trip of lysergic spiritual philosophy. Sincere, profound and yet deeply playful, Brother John's mesmeric baritone waxed poetic about the big questions - Love, Sex, Death, War and Drugs (and God's place in all this) - over a backbeat of fuzz guitars, sitars, avant choirs and go-go drums. From 1966 onwards Brother John broadcast his widely syndicated radio show 'Silhouette' across the U.S.A (and Vietnam), speaking directly to the Hippies, Heads and Jesus-Freaks in an engaging flower-power-patter. His incredibly rare LPs Silhouette Segments (1968), Cantata For New Life (1967) and Worlds Of Youth (1966) were originally distributed only to radio stations and church groups. All are officially reissued here (in full) for the very first time. Remastered with copious extra tracks, exclusive liner notes and extremely rare photos, here at last is the true Gospel of Brother John Rydgren. 72 mind-blowing tracks! All original recordings. Features the magnificent 28 minute epic Cantata For New Life - a psychedelic psycho-spiritual mass for choir, fuzz guitar, rock drums and Brother John! 24 page full colour booklet with exclusive scholarly liner notes, rare photos and ephemera. CD1: Silhouette Segments 2-LP (plus They Say LP). CD2: Cantata For New Life LP plus Worlds Of Youth LP (and extra tracks).

Wigged out evangelism from the Lutheran Ken Nordine, John Rydgren.
This reissue is wonderful!
Some of the pieces are some of the trippiest things you'll hear this side of Word Jazz.

I have some Brother John on vinyl (Silhouette Segments, Silhouette Promo LP) but really wanted to hear some of his other "beat" productions aimed at the youth. Some of these LPs can be quite costly at auction sites so buying this CD collection was a very economical alternative plus the audio quality is very good. Except for some odd single 45's he put out like the interview with T-Rex this CD collection wraps it up for me. Get it before it goes out-of-print like so many of these efforts do.

Unbelievably unique and relevant music. This is classic Jesus Music - some of the earliest stuff out there! This Lutheran Pastor knew how to shake things up. Thank God for people like him. This music came out before my time (not by much), but I treasure the early Jesus Music - especially the stuff that's ultra creative and gnarly. This qualitfies! I can't afford the $100 vinyl records, so this is a perfect purchase!
