Walter and Vivian live in the country and have a difficult time keeping servants. Walter hires an private detective who has been fired for arresting the District Attorney. They only way that Walter can get Jerry to work for him is to tell Jerry that his life is in danger; the neighbor is trying to take his wife; and that Nazi spies are everywhere. Jerry needs a cook for his 'cover' so he gets his fiancée Susan to work with him. To keep Jerry working, Walter sends the threatening letters to himself and hires actors to play the spies. It soon becomes apparent that Susan cannot cook and Jerry could not find a spy if he tripped over him.
The original trippy 1968 album by this US mystical poet-songwriter. Mixing Eastern and Western sounds and drawing on influences ranging from raga to baroque this is a dreamy, evocative song cycle embellished with sound effects and instruments as diverse as sitar, tabla, harpsichord and strings. Incense shrouded, tripped out eastern psych bliss!
A Couple of Times is an exuberant-powerfully tripped out jazzy-electronic trip. With bands as Kollektiv, Kraan, Out of Focus, Xhol, Twogether represent the jazziest side of krautrock. Their sound is rather atypical with reminiscence of notorious epic symphonic keyboardists. A couple of Times is a patchwork of musical styles and influences, an imaginative trip through colourful, soulful and freely improvised jam sessions. A Couple of Times remains a deliciously psychedelic, jazzy, neo-classical orientated musical trip. A little classic and a must have for all prog-heads of the first era.
