FREEDOM'S CHILDREN - Astra (70s South African psych) 180 gram gatefold LPMISSING VINYL
Official, deluxe 180g LP reissue of the second album of the legendary psychedelic progressive South African group, which was originally released on Parlophone in 1970.
Comes in gatefold sleeve.
Not only did the album capture for posterity the unique sounds - dubbed "astral music" or "acid rock" - of arguably South Africa's finest band ever, but it also caught the mood of the drugs infused culture that had taken root on the southern tip of Africa in the post Woodstock love and peace era. From the driving lead of Julian's lead guitar, a perfect match for the amphetamine and speed culture of the day, to the surreal, trippy sound of the band that tuned into the growing use of LSD, 'Astra' captured the mood and the sounds of the early '70s South African music scene.
