Masters Of Reality & The Blue Garden: A Conversation With Chris Goss
Masters Of Reality: Deluxe Edition
Available on 2xLP or 2xCD from Delicious Vinyl – http://bit.ly/MORdvCDorLP
On Saturday, December 15th, 2012, Masters Of Reality frontman Chris Goss and album cover artist/drummer John Leamy will perform live and sign copies of the limited edition re-release of Master Of Reality’s classic debut and live albums. The event will be held at the new Delicious Vinyl Record Shop on Sunset Boulevard. And at 10pm that night, Goss and co. will perform an intimate live set at The 3 Clubs in Hollywood.
These performances celebrate Delicious Vinyl’s release of a Master Of Reality double-disc pack combining their 1988 debut album Masters Of Reality with 1997’s How High The Moon: Live At The Viper Room. The reissue combo comes with a fold-out poster and new liner notes, and is also available on premium-grade double-LP vinyl HERE.
Originally signed by Rick Rubin to Def Jam, Masters Of Reality are a totemic heavy rock band whose blues-wise weight positioned them as heirs to Cream and Led Zeppelin. MOR’s 1988 debut album, deemed “an all-out attack on diminished senses” by UK publication NME, has long been regarded as a high point in the mystical rock continuum.
Masters Of Reality’s formidable frontman Chris Goss is the godfather of the California desert rock scene, having produced multiple albums by Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age. Album cover artist John Leamy (whose classic painting inspired the album’s colloquial title, ‘The Blue Garden’) currently mans the drum throne of Masters Of Reality. Come out to meet these livin’, lovin’ legends.
