GOLGOTHA - Old Seeds Bootleg - Radioactive, 1973


An album that’s just about as home-made a you can get. The originalLP, although recorded for the Jubilee label, never saw the light of day and when the album did finally appear, it was as a privatepressing limited to a paltry 100 copies with no record labels and apaste-on cover! The band, which was formed by guitarist Bruce Scofield in 1969, gigged around the New York and New Jersey areas off and on for acouple of years. Their almost transcendental approach to music won them many (mostly male!) devotees, and their bizarre stageshow (typically, involving vocalist Ray Bartkowech littering the stage with mandolins, percussion instruments, teddy bears and Raggedy Ann dolls!) became somewhat of a novelty. When Jubilee finally got them into the studio, the band laid down amore conventional and more accesible album reminiscent of the sound of Little Feat and early ‘70s Grateful Dead and the 12 selfpenned guitar-led tracks, all of which are brilliantly played, tend to get pretty heavy at times. Another privately-pressed gem from the past.
