I went far far across the sea past soundless desert sub-realities A gentle breeze was flowing through so soft and subtly I stopped to take the late sunshine before the warm light ceased I would not rest for some time on my journey to the East

Born in Boulder, Colorado in 1943, Bill Plummer moved to Los Angeles twenty years later to pursue a jazz career. Already trained on piano, string bass, trumpet, marimba and vibraharp, he added the sitar to his repertoire under the tutelage of Ravi Shankar. The sitar extravaganza should appeal most to psych fans of an Eastern persuasion: the trippy Journey To The East (with deadpan spoken vocals) has since appeared on Journey To The East (LP); the tenminute Arc 294 is a heady cacophany where exotic instruments do battle on a field of freeform jazz. Lynn Blessing released a solo album in 1969.

Bill Plummer & The Cosmic Brotherhood. Bill Plummer & The Cosmic Brotherhood. LP 2013 EU Original (Captain High). Some tunes are rather gentle and relaxed with the lyrics being narrated which adds much to the epic feel of the album. Since this is a really unique effort, I cannot really compare it to any other musical piece of the genre but definitely recommend it to exotic aficionados who for example love Frank Hunter's "White Goddess" album from 1959. Psychedelic music before the term was even invented.
