This collectively-hatched concept album (originally released by Elektra in 1967) matched psychedelic mood music with spoken prose and all manner of percussive, exotic and electronic instrumentation. Divided into 12 separate tracks, one for each astrological sign, this 'celestial counterpoint with words and music' (as the subtitle boasted) 'must be played in the dark' (as the back sleeve instructed in capital purple letters). The album, conceived by Elektra founder and president Jac Holzman, was produced by Alex Hassilev. And while Cyrus Faryar deep-voiced the spoken astrological narrative written by Jacques Wilson, Mort Garson assembled the group of musicians including Paul Beaver and percussionist Emil Richards. Its spacy yet tight groove could have fit The Zodiac tracks into the soundtrack of 1966 Sunset Strip documentaries but, in other respects, the album was futuristic, embellished by some of the first Moog synthesizer ever heard on a commercial recording, an assortment of exotic percussive instruments and sitar. Available on CD for the first time.
