Children of the Sixth Root Race - Songs from the Source (1973)

In the late 1960's, James Edward Baker, calling himself Father Yod/Ya Ho Wha, founded and led a commune of young people that came to be known as the Source Family. In addition to following an organic lifestyle and most of the things that go along with organizations of that nature (no pun intended), the members of the Source Family also made (and continue to make) a ton of music. Friends, this record here is a live recording of the group, here referring to themselves as the Children of the Sixth Root Race, rehearsing for an upcoming concert in 1973. Each track was recorded live, in one take, with no overdubs. Yeah... This one'll take you over the river and through the woods, but where it leaves you isn't anywhere remotely resembling your grandmother's house.

For fans of: Yahowah 13, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix
