One St. Stephen - Same (1975 US Hard Soft Acid Rock)

EXCELENTE ALBUM QUE NA ÉPOCA DE SUA GRAVAÇÃO TEVE UMA TIRAGEM MUITO LIMITADA!! A SONORIDADE É MUITO LEGAL E COM UM VOCAL MARAVILHOSO QUE EM CERTOS MOMENTOS PENSAMOS ESTAR ESCUTANDO SYD BARRET!! MAS O QUE VAGA PELA NOSSA MENTE É MESMO JIM MORRISON REENCARNADO E CANTANDO MAGISTRALMENTE!! CONSIDERO ESSE DISCO UMA PEQUENA OBRA PRIMA E QUE ENTRA SUAVE NO OUVIDO E PASSEIA SERENAMENTE EM NOSSO CÉREBRO (POR VEZES LIMITADO)!!

DON L. PATTERSON PARA GRAVAR O DISCO USOU O PSEUDONIMO DE "ON ST. STEPHEN" EM HOMENAGEM A UM MUSICO DE JAZZ FAMOSO E DEPOIS DESSE ALBUM, APESAR DE UMA TIRAGEM PEQUENA, A GENIALIDADE MUSICAL DO CARA SE ESPALHOU E COM ISSO TEVE OFERTA DE DUAS GRANDES GRAVADORAS PARA PRODUZIR MAIS UM ALBUM, PORÉM NÃO ACEITOU E SAIU FORA DA CENA MUSICAL!! ONE ST. STEPHEN TEM SIDO UM ALBUM MUITO PROCURADO E CULTUADO POR COLECIONADORES!!

This is an album which is generally regarded as one of the finest heavy acid psych albums of its time. One reviewer described it thus: 'Side 1 opens and closes with extended, awesome moody psychers which will blow you away. Poe, heroin and Jim Morrison all help shape the One St. Stephen outlook, which results in one of the more distinct late autumnal moods [ever] manifested on vinyl. Good vocals, some howling fuzz and occasional use of Moog in typical '70s acidhead fashion'.

Don L. Patterson wrote the music and lyrics, was lead vocalist, played electric guitars, directed and produced the album 'One St. Stephen' in March of 1975. The music was originally intended for a film Don was developing with the working title 'The Devil's Reservation'. Due to a famous Jazz musician with the same name, Don used the alias of One St. Stephen. The music was recorded at the legendary Owl Studios (Columbus, Ohio), using the same 8-channel analog recording deck that was used to tape the audio at Woodstock in 1969. Because everyone who heard the LP wanted a copy, Don pressed a very limited amount from Queen City Record Company (Cincinnati Ohio).

He also designed the album sleeve and label. The response by regional disc jockeys was phenomenal. The album got a lot of regional air play. A few months later, Don was offered a recording contract from two major record companies in New York City. Don was asked to tour. Don was never interested in the world of rock and walked away from a music future. Since then the album has been sought by record collectors around the world and bootlegged twice in Europe. This is the first time he has ever released the LP on CD.
