"The Heavy Medicinal Grand Exposition"

Reviews / Notes: The sixth album by Frozen Planet....1969 is another improvised heavy-psyched-out instrumental adventure.
This time however, the music invokes the spirit of the old travelling medicine shows. This is a return to the "concept album" by the band (their first three albums were also concept albums).
The tracklisting is quite simple, but the concept and layout is much more complex. Two tracks; the title-track as track one, lasting an entertaining thirty-nine and a half minutes, followed by
a neat little "encore" of about six minutes. Track one is of course spread over two sides for the vinyl edition due to playing-time restrictions. However, the fade-out at the end of side one
could be viewed as a lead into an intermission! The parts of the title-track serve as the acts of the show. The band takes twists and turns to help guide you through the story, while Doctor Berner
is on a quest to sell bottles of his glowing green elixir with the help of some colourful characters. This is all illustrated in a wonderful vintage comicbook style.
Simply follow the program inside the gatefold and you'll have a grand old time!
