Psyched for this one! We first got wind of Atomic Forest via Academy Records’ excellent comp, OBSESSION, a brilliant mixing of some of the rarest and most choice psych and funk gems from around the world. The comp opens and closes with two versions of “Obsession ’77” by Atomic Forest, easily one of the most fierce tunes on the record. I’ve occasionally tried to find more of Atomic Forest, but with out much luck. So its pretty exciting to see that Now Again Records is going to release Atomic Forest: Obsession, a collection of searing psychedelic funk from various incantations of Atomic Forest,1973-77. The 2LP set will also come with booklet containing a variety of press clippings, articles, and extensive linear notes. Check out “Locomotive Breath” & “Obsession ’77” below, along with some photos from the release. You can preview more tracks on Stones Throw’s site.
