Balaklava was the second album recorded and released by psychedelic folk group Pearls Before Swine in 1968. For the album, original group members Tom Rapp, Wayne Harley and Lane Lederer were joined by Jim Bohannon, who replaced Roger Crissinger. Like the group’s previous LP recorded on ESP-Disk, entitled One Nation Underground, it was recorded at Richard Alderson's Impact Sound studio in New York City.
Balaklava (LP, Album). Imo the best PBS album. The first was an incredible set of acoustic psychedelia but Balaklava managed to outdo it with its superior sequence of hallucinogenic folk songs. I've been listening to this album for over 30 years and still not plumbed its depths. Translucent Carriages is dark and deep with its whispered vocals and heavy breathing. Images of April is the ultimate acid-folk construct with its artfully placed swamp noises (they aren't real birds or frogs you know ) and spiralling-into oblivion echoed vocals.
