Shiva’s Headband “Take Me To The MounTains (U.S.Green Capitol) 1970 Cover is VG+ with a small split on the spine and some overall wear. Vinyl is VG+. Great country psych lp!
Shiva’s Headband are most likely more known for their role in the Austin music scene then they are for actually putting out records. Involved in both the ’60s psychedelic scene along with Janis Joplin and 13th Floor Elevators as well as the heyday of the outlaw country movement with Willie Nelson the following decade.
The album itself follows a similar path but by 1970 the psychedelic elements are more toned down and the country rock magnified. About every other song is worth a listen especially the early Americana of “Take Me to the Mountains” and “Kaleidoscoptic”. Like The Band? Give it a listen.
