Pierre Cavalli - Chasse à l'homme

The library music composer Pierre Cavalli has three things to say young people growing up in the psychedelic world: turn on, tune in, and drop out. In other words, he was an absolutely shameless hack, but that's what was needed to capture the spirit of a hackneyed age. His Chasse à l'homme dates to 1971 and is one of the greatest bits of instrumental psychedelia ever written. No guitars ever screamed shriller, no backing singers ever did operatics more fruity, nothing ever dove so quickly and so urgently down into the swirling morass of full studio sound. Sheer bloody madness.
