The Great Beast Speaks
20 minutes' worth of devious recitations, transferred off the original wax cylinders. Wonderful piece of spoken wordedness, with the only drawback being that it's a horribly crackly lo-fi recording (though faithfully bootlegged into the digital medium). It sounds spooky, and it's definitely the Man, though it's really hard to hear what he's saying. Then what do am I supposed to expect, right; it was made in 1920. More poetry than ritual, I'm afraid, but you do get to hear Uncle Crowley sing in the last track. I've seen 2 releases of this; an overly expensive import (which I believe was the first pressing), and this copy which I found at Tower Records. Sorry, but you're on your own here.
