Perth County Conspiracy
Origin: Stratford, Ontario
A true legend of the psych-folk rock genre, the very first album by Canadian band Perth County Conspiracy was conceived, recorded and designed to look and sound like the product of a commercial record label. But with only 250 copies produced the record quickly reached mythic status as the band went on to begin a commercial career with Columbia Records. Defining the zeitgeist as the 60s became the 70s, the band sound has touches of Nick Drake, Donovan and Terry Reid as well as more acid folk influences. Pure commune folk music and one of Canada’s most intriguing psychedelic artifacts. Heavy (vibes) and extremely rare. All tracks recorded at Studio G CBC Toronto on August 14 and 15, 1970.
