Lothar and the Hand People - Space Hymn (1969)

Moog anyone? Lothar and the Hand People are a bunch of happy psychedelic space-cadets. "Space Hymn" is their second and last album. So, if you like moogs, early synthesizers and random psychedelic weirdness, you are in for a good time. A Rolling Stone magazine review describes them as this:

"It is electronic country, a kind of good-time music played by mad dwarfs, and it is really good to listen to. There is no tension here, no jarring forces at war with each other. It may be strange that New York, the city which deifies speed and insanity, could produce this music, but it is as if Lothar and the Hand People have gone through this madness and come out on the other side, smiling."
