BRIAN JONES Presents The Pipes Of Pan At Joujouka

Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka was released in 1971 on Rolling Stones Records. Jones and recording engineer George Chkiantz went to Morocco to record the Master Musicians Of Joujouka in 1968 using a portable Uher tape recorder. Jones edited and mixed the 90 minutes of recordings for a single LP including vocal chants, flute and drum music and the full village orchestra's drum and horn music played to accompany the "frenzied dance of Bou Jeloud, a Moroccan Pan." He finished the LP in 1969 just prior to his death.

Reissued on CD in the 90's with separated tracks and different artwork, here is the original LP version featuring two different sides of music as originally intended by Brian. It's a pretty intense album, both rhythmically and instrumentally, especially when augmented by Brian's pscyhedelic mix. VIVA BRIAN JONES!
