"Bluesy melodic rock with organ, sax, fuzz. real amateur sound. A highlight is "U.S. Blues" with trippy dippy counterculture lyrics, basement vocals, and avant sax noise. " That I found this for download made me disgorgingly apoplectic. A few years ago, I found a fairly decent copy of an ESP sampler LP in what was otherwise a box of trash. ESP was a folk, psych, freaky jazz label that existed in the late sixties and early seventies. All of the original LP pressings are very pricey collector's items. Hell, even the reissues on CD and LP will set you back about $50.00 as those are now out of print as well. The song on the sampler, and the only song I heard from Octopus until I found this on Rhapsody, was "Harold Knows (Better Than You)".

My immediate, almost visionary thought, when hearing this song was - my god, Trey Anastasio (or his mom for that matter) must have had this record. Octopus as progenitor of Phish - who knew? But the rest of the album just confirms it. Perhaps I'm insane, but I'll bet all the metaphysics in my aura that one way or another every musical idea in this record has been expanded on by Phish.

Not that the ideas on this record are presented all that well. The "US Blues" on this record is an annoying bluesy number with a freaked-out trumpet - in no way connected the Grateful Dead's song. "The War" is a typical hippy anti-war rant. However, "Fruk Juice" is a very cool 16min jazzy psych jam that is the primary reason this record has its high regard.
