Alejandro Jodorowsky’s flamboyant cinematic masterpiece ‘Holy Mountain’ can proudly claim, amongst all its other accolades, one of fantastique cinema’s greatest red herrings of all time.

In the interest of anti spoilerism we are not referring to the film’s reconstituted plot here (recycled from René Daumal’s 1952 fictitious mountaineering journal) but rather the film’s devious inverted end title sequence, a murky pond which harbours the true crimson fish that has quite frankly wasted record collectors’ time for over four bloody decades. The immortal, fatal, deviously distracting and plain evil strap line that reads “Forthcoming soundtrack available of Abkco Records and Tapes” has served a repeat menu of wild goose chase soup followed by red herring salad served in half a camouflaged curveball with a glass of muddied water in your own personal smoked screen booth for most of our adult lives. The unreleased soundtrack to the most fantastic transcendental spiritual cinematic explosion of our time. ‘The Holy Mountain’ features the original cues, composed-to-scene, mastered from the original studio master tapes via Record Plant, A&R, Sear Sound and Electric Ladyland and housed in exclusive packaging based on one of the rarest European posters for the film’s original release. This first edition also includes exclusive interviews and lost information from Neneh Cherry, Ronald Frangipane and the Swedish members of the original Don Cherry 'Holy Mountain' line up Bengt Berger and Christer Bothen alongside commendable quotes from Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and Kieran Hebden (Four Tet).
