Notes

A2 recorded next to a construction area

Tracks containing ambient sound (field recordings) were recorded simultaneously to the sounds in open areas and not by adding them pre-recorded or samples sounds.

Recorded to 1/4 inch tape, 8 track format.

Instruments used: Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, Fender Precision, Spanish acoustic, American acoustic, harmonica, melonautix, vintage casiotone, Microkorg, phaser, flanger (jet engine), wah wah (MRB), tone bender, Vox AC 30, Ampeg, Electribe ES-1 (drum machine), maracas, tambourine, 1969 Yamaha drums and bongos.

We are proud to say that no digital technology was used to make this record. Considering the ultra low availability of analog technology in these digital times (like the so digital album art ;), we have sacrificed everything else to offer you a completely analog record.

This album is dedicated to Hugo Chavez Smith

Produced by Jesus

God bless Spacemen 3

Drawing the group’s name [though this could simply be the work of a single visionary person] from the historic psychedelic band The Jefferson Airplane, this Chilean experience, The Psychedelic Schafferson JetPlane offer up a bit of 60’s hazy intoxication, but only so much as Spacemen 3 did in the 90’s, creating a new atmosphere that shares a kindred spirit for haunting musical delights, ethereal rhythmic meanderings and sonic layering that moves the music forward, though staying true to a warm scripted environment laced with a penchant for substances of the hypnotic nature.

For the most part, the album is a fine mix of inherent relaxation based on an ambient acid blues psychedelic vision of pastoral dreamscape enchantment, and it was all recorded on quarter inch 16 track analog equipment, including vintage guitars and drums, claiming that no digital technology was used in the making of this record. That being said, why so many bands of this nature seem to feel it necessary to venture into the ah-la Pink Floyd affected intros and outtros to each song is bewildering to me. Yes, these effects [which are actually affectations] may come off enchanting on the first couple of listens, though after repeated plays, they begin to wear, sending me to the editing machine where I’ve filtered them out, creating an effortless perfect prescription that will not shake me from my slumber.

Nevertheless, this is a collection of material that shouldn’t be overlooked, especially if one is inclined for a couch-bound adventure into the sub-tropics of your mind.

*** Not to be missed on any account is the song “Blessings From The Reptiles,” a song completely raptured in the haze of San Francisco at it’s high water mark.
