Having left Wisconsin to join a burgeoning West Coast religious scene, Freund made his way to San Francisco in 1968 to lay down this sole effort with some of his students. The result is a spooky trip that's equal parts acid-soaked mind expansion and God. Laced with haunting vocals and dreamlike passages, sinister farfisa, blasts of fuzz guitar and downer lyrics, MONTGOMERY CHAPEL is psychedelic music at it's most evocative and thanks to it's depth and sense of anxiety, most truly spiritual. Only 600 copies were pressed and issued on the custom Century label; they've become holy grails of collectors.
Insert is packed with info and band history by band leader Rev. Nicholas T. Freund, plus photos from his personal archive.
