    ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY’S THE HOLY MOUNTAIN: Original Soundtrack. CD

    One of the ironies of the career of Chilean-born filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky is that while he is best known as a visual stylist, his most avid and loyal champions have often been musicians. When Jodorowsky arrived in New York from Mexico City in 1970 carrying a copy of the then-unreleased El Topo, it was the jazz producer Alan Douglas who bought the distribution rights to the film. When Jodorowsky and Douglas were looking for a venue in which to screen El Topo, it was John Lennon and Yoko Ono who asked for it to run at midnight following their short-film festival at New York’s Elgin Cinema. After six months of sold-out midnight screenings at the Elgin, it was Lennon’s manager, Allen Klein (ABKCO’s founder), who bought the rights to El Topo and agreed to produce its follow-up, The Holy Mountain. And when Jodorowsky wanted, in his words, “another kind of music—something that wasn't entertainment, something that wasn't a show, something that went to the soul, something profound,” for the soundtrack to The Holy Mountain, forward came jazz legend Don Cherry and crack studio musician (and one-time Archie) Ron Frangipane to share composing and (along with Jodorowsky) conducting duties. And, boy, did they deliver—the score to The Holy Mountain is every bit as hallucinatory as the fantastic visual imagery in the film itself. The deep, primordial chants that begin the movie, “Trance Mutation,” give way to an almost jaunty percussion-and-plucked-strings melody, “Pissed and Passed Out.” On the next track, “Violence of the Lambs,” a single flute is slowly joined by a set of mournful strings while, onscreen, Gestapo-like soldiers in gas masks parade with bloody lamb carcasses on sticks. “Drink It,” an upbeat sitar folk melody, follows, briefly accompanying the main protagonist The Thief’s ill-considered decision to guzzle tequila (or sleeping potion). Then there is “Christs 4 Sale,” a blaring orchestral riff that sounds like it was ripped from a 1950’s swords-and-sandals epic. The next track, “Cast Out and Pissed,” begins with a bee-like buzz, then is overwhelmed by a cacophony of drums, horns, and, finally, screaming. “Eye of the Beholder” which follows, changes moods entirely once again—a string section swells with overwrought romanticism. (Onscreen, a group of young prostitutes prays in a church. One of them later walks arm and arm with a chimpanzee.) And then there is “Communion,” a brooding, trumpet-led number that would be at home on the noir-steeped Chinatown soundtrack. (As “Communion” plays, the Thief is not driving through Los Angeles at night but eating the face off a statue of Christ.) This veritable cornucopia of musical styles would be more than enough to fill an entire movie. It would be more than enough to fill three movies. But in fact, the eight musical compositions described above play entirely in The Holy Mountain’s first 24 minutes. Still ahead lie the hard rock of “Psychedelic Weapons,” the pomp and circumstance of the waltz “Miniature Plastic Bomb Shop,” the gospel-inflected sax of “Isla (The Sapphic Sleep),” and so on. Every one of the 24 tracks on the film’s soundtrack presents another vertiginous twist in the philosophical and spiritual journey that is The Holy Mountain.

    Now, Real Gone Music, in association with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., presents for the first time ever as a stand-alone CD release, the original soundtrack to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1973 masterpiece The Holy Mountain. The CD features liner notes by New York Times contributor Eric Benson that include exclusive quotes from Jodorowsky himself, festooned with copious production stills. Produced for release by Grammy-winning producer Teri Landi and Mick Gochanour, and mastered from the original tapes by Joe Yannece, this long-awaited release of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain: Original Soundtrack offers a major addition to the soundtrack canon and a completely unique listening experience.

ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY’S THE DANCE OF REALITY Original Soundtrack

  • While Chilean-Born Alejandro Jodorowsky Is Recognized as One of the Most Original Visual Stylists in the History of Cinema, His Soundtracks Are Also Among the Most Striking and Innovative Scores Ever Composed

  • Now, Real Gone Music in Association with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc. Is Releasing the Complete, Original Soundtrack to Jodorowsky’s Latest Film Triumph, The Dance of Reality, the First Work from the Cinematic Auteur in 23 Years

  • Composed by Jodorowsky’s Song Adan Jodorowsky (a.k.a. “Adanowsky”), Whose Work as a Composer and Performer (with Devendra Banhart among Others) Has Won Him an International Following
    in His Own Right

  • Alternately Lush and Comical, Brooding and Wistful, the Score to The Dance of Reality Is, as Always with a Jodorowsky Film, Surreal

  • LP Album Jacket and CD Booklet Include a Number of Production Stills from the Film

  • Mastered by Joe Yannece

  • Lacquer Cutting on LP by Carl Rowatti at Trutone Mastering 

    AVAILABLE January, 6 2015 PRE-ORDER COMING SOON!

    ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY’S THE DANCE OF REALITY: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. CD

    The release in 2014 of The Dance of Reality marked the triumphant return, after a 23-year hiatus, of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind cult classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain. In the radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky (played by his son, Brontis) is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contribute to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. Adding to the autobiographical nature of the work, the film was shot in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where the filmmaker was born in 1929. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.

    Jodorowsky’s films have always placed a special emphasis on music—his soundtracks rank as among the most daring and fascinating in film history—and for The Dance of Reality, Jodorowsky tapped his own son Adan Jodorowsky (a.k.a. “Adanowsky”), whose work as a composer and performer (with Devendra Banhart among others) has won him an international following in his own right. Adanowsky’s score is alternately lush and comical, blending brooding string passages with hypnotically repeating piano figures that create a mood that is at times foreboding, at times wistful and, as is always the case with a score to a Jodorowsky film, surreal.

     As part of its continuing association with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., Real Gone Music is proud to present the complete soundtrack to The Dance of Reality on CD, mastered by Joe Yannece. The CD booklet includes a number of production stills from the film. Alejandro Jodorowsky’s tradition of remarkable film soundtracks lives on with The Dance of Reality.

    JACKIE MOORE: The Complete Atlantic Recordings (2-CD Set)

    Florida-born soul singer Jackie Moore began her recording career in 1968 with singles on the Shout and Wand labels; however it was her first release for Atlantic Records in early 1970 that catapulted her to national prominence in the U.S with a song – written by Jackie and her cousin Dave Crawford, who produced it – that started out as the B-side to her debut single for the label.  The label selected the brass-laden “Willpower” but a radio disc jockey flipped the record, got immediate reaction and Jackie ended up with a gold record in the form of “Precious, Precious,” a lilting, gentle slice of Southern soul that remains a timeless R&B classic.

     Ne'er a truer word was spoken! And, lest someone be offended by the title of this album, let's just remember that this is REDD FOXX, the guy who practically invented off-color humor! And this album, released by Atlantic in 1976 and the comic legend’s first album release in 12 years, was actually pretty tame compared to the "party records" that Redd recorded for the Dootone label that were so, um, salty that record stores had to hide them under the counter.
