Knowbody Else - Soldiers of Pure Peace CD. Hailing from the northeast corner of Arkansas, Knowbody Else was a groundbreaking musical force during the Summer of Love who were caught up in the post-Sgt Pepper / Byrds-ian day-glow era. What they created at Ardent Studio in 1967 with legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson is nothing short of a truly brilliant psychedelic masterpiece influenced by “the times they are a changin’.”
How these ten unreleased original songs have remained unknown and unheard for 45 years is both a mystery and a crime. Arf! Arf! has worked closely with the Dickinson estate for this authorized release taken directly from the original mastertapes. The music comes wrapped in a luscious, 24-page booklet chock full of photos, memorabilia, and insightful notes by noted artist Glennray Tutor, who witnessed their magic back in the day.
In 1969, the band cut a rootsy LP for Stax before morphing into BLACK OAK ARKANSAS and going on to achieve huge AOR success for their raunchy and rambunctious Southern Rock. This astonishing body of early work contained in this historical release of Soldiers of Pure Peace will finally set the record straight on how they were once frighteningly innovative and experimental artists, and properly document their prophetic sense of musical and poetic genius for all to experience.
