Spirit of the Golden Juice
The first LP release produced by The Circadian Press, the brainchild of Sacred Bones printmaker Keegan Cooke. We could not be more proud to present F.J. McMahon’s only album, Spirit of The Golden Juice. This is the first faithful and fully licensed reproduction of the album originally released in 1969 on the Accent label. Pressed in a tiny quantity and scattered around the California coastline, Spirit of The Golden Juice has become a top item among collectors and folk/psych lovers alike. Its a spell-binding blend of heartfelt singer-songwriter emotion and spiraling acoustic guitar accompaniment, standing up proudly alongside heroes like Hoyt Axton, Kris Kristofferson, and Fred Neil, but with a raw and adventurous spirit all its own.
As his sole musical release, F.J. McMahon created one of the most emotionally compelling and cohesive albums ever.
Reissue limited to 500 copies in deluxe tip-on jacket w/ Risographed insert.
