Can you believe I found this in a garage sale right here in DFW near one of the local suburbs where we reside? From a middle aged lady about my age. Sitting right next to Willie Nelson too. You never know what you'll find in people's closets....
Vampiros Lesbos is pretty much what you would expect from an album such as this: Psychedelic tinged jazz rock instrumentals. Nothing cutting edge, but good rhythms and wonderful early 70s analog tones. Schwab would go on to Embryo not long after, giving him future street cred. A fun set of music, and a good way to shock your neighbors next time you have them over for a glass of wine and cheese (literally and figuratively I suppose).
I did see the movie once, didn't even get through it. Pretty dull stuff, though I'm sure it was much more exciting in 1970.
The copy I found is the Motel CD. Comes with fine liner notes including from Jess Franco himself. Nice sound too. Very much recommended. The 2006 CD adds 3 tracks, and the LP adds 5 from the original release (making it a 2 LP set).
