Bobby BeauSoleil - Lucifer Rising Double Cassette
Hey. I'm new here, so by way of an introduction here's an illustration that you can't have too much of a good thing, in the form of Bobby BeauSoleil's soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's magick-art-psych-cinema classic Lucifer Rising, presented, this time, as a rather lovely double cassette box-set courtesy of Canadian cassette label Virus Productions. Now, according to Discogs, this will be the seventh version of this material - from the 1980 Lethal Records/Magick Theatre Productions LP through to The Ajna Offensive's lavish 2009 expanded 4xLP The Lucifer Rising Suite box set - and I'm not too ashamed of my own nerdery to admit to owning four of them, including this latest incarnation. Hell, I love this material so damn much I had to restrain myself from buying last years repress of the box set simply because the LP's were pressed on some really rather nifty splattered wax. Reason eventually caught ahold but I still falter on occasion... So, this new double cassette version was release on February 1st in two editions - a regular edition that is limited to 50 copies in a clamshell case with a double sided cover (with 25 coming in a black case and 25 in a white one) - and a limited to 50 'Die Hard' edition that adds a booklet, poster, sticker, badge and natty orange sportpack bag (as pictured above). You can get it from the Virus Productions Bandcamp, but be quick about it as there are only a handful left. If you're a fan of Bobby's or an admirer of the film, can you really afford not to get this?
