Country Joe & The Fish - The Wave of Electric Sound (180-Gram Vinyl Deluxe Box Set)

1967 marked an era of creative expression, political rebellion and experimentation, climaxing in The Summer of Love; and no other location on Earth was quite as synonymous with this period as San Francisco  ̶  the center of  the counterculture movement.

Perhaps one of the best musical representations of this time, place and environment came from a rock band across the Bay, who married progressive protest with groundbreaking, experimental music: Country Joe & the Fish. In that one year, the Berkeley musicians rose to prominence.

This deluxe 4-LP box set, The Wave of Electrical Sound, offers both mono and stereo versions of Electric Music for the Mind and Body and I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-To-Die. All four remastered LPs will be pressed on audiophile quality, 180-gram vinyl  – the mono Electric Music for the Mind and Body LP will feature rare, alternate cover artwork, while the other titles will be in replicas of their original packaging.

The Wave of Electrical Sound also contains a bounty of band ephemera from 1967, including replicas of The Fish Game, a Fish Fan Club book and a Fish calendar designed by Tom Weller. Also included is a DVD of How We Stopped the War, a 30-minute documentary, filming the band on their way to an anti-Vietnam War rally, directed by David Peoples (writer of Blade Runner, Twelve Monkeys, Unforgiven), as well as a 24-page book, which features rare photos, artwork and new liner notes from writer, producer and musician Alec Palao. A must-have for Fishfans, the collection offers a deep look into the band’s sonic progression, and innovative uses of electronic instrumentation and distortion, all of which helped to usher in the genre of psychedelia.
