13 Dreams - "The Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus (A Tribute To Spirit)" {USA} [2006] (Psych)

Thirteen Dreams Tribute Cd to the brilliant 60's/70's rock band Spirit is a collectors dream. This new six member Seatle Band is astonishing! "Redux's" Producer Dave Aumann pulled out all the stops on this one!
Spirit is widely recognized as one of the quintessential sixties psychedelic bands and their opus Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus is rightly heralded as one of the real classics of the era. The genius of guitarist Randy California, vocalist Jay Ferguson, bassist Mark Andes, keyboardist John Locke and drummer Ed Cassidy fills their music with a timeless surealistic beauty. Their music lingers in your mind and soul long after you've experienced it!
Continuing with and adding to this magnificent tradition is Thirteen Dreams. Long time veterans of the psychedelic music scene. Thirteen Dreams lovingly revisits Dr. Sardonicus" in its entirety, bringing this 1971 masterpiece into the new millennium.
Twelve Dreams of Dr.Sardonicus: "Redux" takes the whole psychedelic experience to a new level with theremins, sitars, violins, e-bows, moog synths, and other out-of-this-world sounds, creating pure musical magic. Almost double the length of the Spirit original, Redux also includes mind blowing new versions of other unreleased Spirit songs. To compliment our superb band 13 Dreams, we picked the world's finest musicians living in the area at the time, for the "Redux" Production.
13 Dreams consists of one of the Northwest's best guitarist's Jeff Carolus-lead guitar/vocals. The band also includes Ed Vance-keyboards, Devan Stovall-drums, Chris Swanson-bass, Dave Aumann-guitars/vocals/theremin, Erik Hansen-vocals. Guest musicians, including Steve Fossen; formerly of Heart, film composer Saeed Shahram, Don King and Jeff Beals;from Jr. Cadillac, psychedelic violinist Seth Warren, sitarist Larry Ludvig, German vocalist Bea Kendrick, Doug Peters and Desiree Tournier.

The original album is an amazing work, I'm really looking forward to listening to this redux version.

This sounds like a Dream release for an old Spirit fan like me, but unfortunately tiny.cc says the links are no good (I guess because it's a 2-years old post). Is there any chance of a re-post, please?

Cheers!

Hi, I'm from Mexico City. Unfortunely the link is bad. Can you repost. I'am think both records, the original and the 13 dreams are unique.

If I still had a copy of this I would make a Re-Up. Sadly, I have searched 11 hard drives and no joy.
It may be on 1 of 3 others (damaged) that I intend to check at work tomorrow, so do not give up hope. It was not my rip, I downloaded from SoulSeek. It would be good enough to buy, so I will consider that also. Best Regards.

I'll take your word for it that is is good and found the cd with 17 tracks at cd baby for $11.00. So we will see. Hard to find the 17 track version like you have above.

thanks

The bad news is it is not on the other external drives. The good news is I placed an order for the CD, and it will be delivered sometime in March, expect a FLAC + MP3 post here soon.

Updated link. with scans this time. The FLAC will be posted in the PNF Forum only. I bought. Buy what you can. We are all Buyers of music, and sharers too. It annoys me to hear that we are pirates when I order 5 or more CD's per month. We are promoters!!!
