The Open Window has been described by reviewers as a chamber-rock jazz trio, a classical ensemble and a folk-rock-raga group and all the names fit except that they leave out the honky-tonk piano rolls and the Russian chants. These three musicians take it all apart and when they put it all back together again, it’s something new; a batch of songs, non songs and sort-of-songs-music that will engage your mind and your toe and anything else you leave exposed to it. Stoned Circle happily presents the inspired and remarkable world of theoretical and classical composers Peter Schickele, Stanley Walden and Robert Dennis. Their momentary collision with psychedelic rock music in 1970 laid waste to any musical divisions and boundaries that may have existed. Caught in the act in 1970, the collaborative Open Window transcended popular culture and defined an era of music with an open mind, freedom of thought and a baboose! Step inside for a colourful surprise and meet the psychedelic sound of the Open Window. Professionally re-mastered original sound recording with background liners and rare archival photographs.
