Lite Storm-Warning,LP,1973,USA

Pretty obscure Cali group fronted by Johnima Bahlu. Featuring Kali Bahlu who along with Johnima recorded the great lp on World Pacific, "Kali Bahlu Takes the Forest Children on a Journey of Cosmic Rememberance"(recently posted here). Pop dreamland with Divine Mother guru love overtones. These folks went off the deep end not long after and raised carrots and had lotsa free love or whatever it is chanting, VW driving, Mother Earth reading types did on the communes. Anyways, rarer than the Bahlu lp and pretty late for this sound.
Not as freaked out as Kali Bahlu LP but yet very essential.

I think this album is funny as hell, though probably the humor was unintentional. The opening track culls the most obvious cliches of the flower-power era and throws them together in a bad impersonation of Jefferson Airplane (was this really done in 1973??) Johnima Bahlu's weird screaming falsetto on 'Scarlet Ribbons' is hilarious, especially when you picture him as Kali Bahlu's husband...can you imagine them getting into an argument and shrieking back and forth at each other? More Lite Storm please!!
