Kama Sutra (1970)

This Kama Sutra label looks like packaging for a Barbie doll. I would probably like this label a whole lot more if the color scheme were tweaked away from the pink. Honestly, this Pepto-Bismol shade of pink really must be the hardest color for a designer to work with tastefully in the entire spectrum of visible color. Maybe there are some garish purples and sickly greens that could be as tricky, but I think this one is pretty tough. I do really like the layout with the arc of icons.

This Caldera album is pretty crazy. It's a "moog mass" and features vocoded religious choral singing over moog arrangements, with a British guy reading prayers. Really spooky at times. It's not a totally freaked-out listen, the tracks are short and relatively concise, but the whole thing has got a very distinctive and interesting sound. Highly recommended for anyone interested in weirdo psych/religious stuff.
