Danny Ben Israel established himself as one of the most extravagant musicians to
emerge from the Israeli Psychedelic scene of the 60’s, mostly because of his
extraordinary album from 1970, Bullshit 3 ¼. (reissued on vinyl by World In Sound
Label in 2012)
Originally, Danny was one of the lead singers of Israel Military entertainment groups
of the 60’s and became one of the greatest voices of Hebrew music in Israel of the
1960’s. After his musical experiment in Europe, recording pop music, he returned to
Israel and was identified more and more with the Hippie ideas of the time, and was
attracted to the psychedelic rock style. After recording “Bullshit 3¼”, which was
recorded in Eshel Studios in Tel Aviv and released in 1970, which turned out to be a
commercial failure, Danny did not stop there, and at the same time continued to
record new songs, known as “The Katmandu Sessions” are somewhat characterized
by volunteerism, and the participating artists were various musicians - some of whom
are unknown. His texts dealt with controversial issues – politics, sex, drugs etc. and
were not broadcasted on the radio.
