So, it's like this: former pre-fame Hendrix recordist Ed Chalpin gets a hold of Chubby Checker in the lean years post-dance craze and pre-nostagia tours and builds a freaked-out psych-soul masterpiece around him.
All the trademarks of the best of the era are here, wailing, intense vocals, heavy organ and progressive sounds, scorching fuzz and feedback. And great, intense songs.
This record was sneaked out by Chalpin to various budget labels, and Chubby actually attempted to deny it was even him.
But he had no reason to be ashamed. It is the best work he ever recorded. Eerie, wild, magnificent album that in an alternate universe, was a big hit and is regarded as an undisputedly great work. Much more than a curiosity.

I can't wait to get this tonight. I've wanted to hear this for quite awhile. What year was this recorded? Allmusic lists the release date as '71.

Man, Ian! You are on the same page as I am. I almost upped this last night, but it got too late.

I want everyone to get 'stoned in the bathroom' and listen to this odd-ass Chubby Checker album.

I quite like this, in a way it reminds me of a more British sound than American, shades of early Deep purple (!) or Atomic Rooster. Nice drumming.

Yep, as far a wish for all nations, that might even go on the list atop world peace. Because, if we all got stoned in the bathroom, we'd have no need to kick each other's asses all the time.

Heck yeah, me too! Inside of the brownies was solid green! More stoned than I have ever been. Full-on hallucinations.
