the score to the ultimate midnight movie and spiritual pseudo western an album that marks the exact pinprick where Alejandro Jodorowsky’s legacy first bled into the wider public consciousness.

To affirm its 70s rock credentials ‘El Topo’ was originally imported by record producer Alan Douglas (Jimi Hendrix / The Last Poets / Miles Davis) then bought by American Beatles manager Allen Klein under the recommendation of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who shared enthusiasm with late night creatives like Dennis Hopper, Samuel Fuller and Don Cherry (who would later score ‘The Holy Mountain’). Presented here as part of a dedicated series of Jodorowsky’s ABKCO film scores (alongside the previously unreleased ‘The Holy Mountain’ and ‘The Dance Of Reality’), The acidic folk soundtrack was originally composed by Jodorowsky himself with his long term Mexican collaborator Nacho Méndez, with whom he had previously worked on the avant theatre production and LP H30. an enthralling and pop culturally significant release.
