This obscurity from the vaults of early-'70s Baltimore freaks compiles material from an intended double LP that never surfaced at the time. Packaged in a film canister (similar to Public Image Ltd's Metal Box), the four 10' records contain material from their self-released LP and 12 additional tracks intended to fill out the vetoed double. An elaborate booklet accompanies the set, containing photographs, lyrics, and past-hence liner notes. Expect homespun progressive rock, intrepid psychedelic voyages, and general late-'60s affectations rolled into one chaotic whole. Not as immediately striking as some of the reissue gems Little Wing has turned up, but a curious obscurity of the psychedelic underground no less. Here we have the official CD reissue of Okinawa, a rare progressive/psychedelic album by Baltimore band OHO, 1st released as a 15 track vinyl 12' record in July 1974. This Vintage disc features the original recordings in their intended sequence, now including 15 'bonus' tracks from the original sessions that were omitted from the original 1974 record due to the then prohibitive cost of releasing a double LP. The Vintage package includes extensive liner notes and hermeneutics in a 20-page booklet along with credits, lyrics, anecdotes, 'classic' quotes, poems, period photographs and much more. The unique garage-progressive/proto punk/'kitchen sink' style of OHO will appeal to fans of the Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Gentle Giant school of progressive music as well as to those looking for something original, psychedelic and/or bizarre and daring. This 74 minute CD comes housed in high gloss tri-fold Pepto Bismal-pink digipak cover! OHO guitarist Jay Graboski worked closely with the Vintage label overseeing the new digital remastering of this classic material that is now over 36 years old. Jay has been a member of this ever transmogrifying ensemble since late 1973 when rehearsals for the January 1974 recording sessions for Okinawa began, and continues to record and perform under this moniker with drummer/multi-instrumentalist, David Reeve. OHO? Aha! That's a name that rings bells. Baltimore's answer to Pink Floyd, an American underground icon, a band that came out of nowhere playing music the chroniclers swore was years ahead of its time. OHO sneaks around the musical conventions that have mummified so many others, unleashing sliders where you'd expect curve balls, fast balls where you'd expect change-ups. Part of its their sense of humor, part of it their unerring humanity. A curious anomaly, the band was totally out of synch with current musical trends when they formed in late 73, a five-piece multi-instrumental, avant garde, acid-progressive band from Baltimore with a do-it-yourself lifestyle and album/label/outlook who were either seven years too late or seventeen years too early. They remain enigmatic, but certainly made some daring music in their time.Like the Residents, these guys seem to be an artistic collective of some sort having released albums, a single, various compact discs, DVD's, tapes and literature demonstrating their own demented aesthetic. OHO is one of those curious oddball bands who existed in the pre-dawn of the independent label revolution. 'Okinawa' is OHOs first album and is now finally available on compact disc! Recorded in January 1974, it is astonishingly full of weirdness that falls somewhere in Syd Barrett-era Floydland: some psychedelia, some art noise, some bizarre theatrics; but all-around inventive and well crafted. OHO combined the theater-rock-dialogue format of Genesis with the crazed-rock styles of 'Wild Man' Fischer and Capt. Beefheart. Musically more progressive than psychedelic, an hour of 'Okinawa' and you'll be carried away, via a weird pastiche of post-Zappa logic and Christopher Milk-like Anglo worship, to the tangerine jungle of marshmallow madness.
