AGITATION FREE - LAST
02. Laila II
03. Looping IV
The final album saw it's release after the demise of the band in 1974. Side 1 (recorded in France, March 1973) begins with "Soundpool" which is essentially an extended introduction into a glorious, more stoned version of "Laila". Wonderful.
Side 2 (recorded in Berlin, February 1974) is a 22 minute ambient slow burning jam. Really spooky, excellent.
Although this was put together after the band broke up, this is probably my favorite.
Since this release there have been reunions, compilations and unearthed material but these three records represent the essential Agitation Free.
