Spirits And Worm - Spirits And Worm 1969

An original vinyl copy of SPIRITS AND WORM (A&M SP 4229) is among the rarest collectors item lps around. This item was released briefly in 1969, primarily in the New York City area and only a few copies got out before it disappeared. The legend goes that the album was pulled from distribution because the cover art (a couple of goats resting on a tombstone) was rumored to be satanic.

A listen to the music, a collection of love songs with a Jefferson Airplane and Santana type sound, quickly disspells such associations. “Fanny Firecracker” and “You and I Together,” featuring the Grace Slick-like vocals of Adrianne Maurici, came out as a single (A&M 1104). Other group members were Carlos Hernandez (primary songwriter), Artie Hicks Jr., Alfred Scotti, and Tommy Parris. Don’t know any more about them. Would like to know where they are today and what they’re doing. Collectors of obscure vintage psychedlia shouldn’t miss out on this. (J. B. Brent). Thanks
