Zweistein — Trip – Flip Out – Meditation
(Captain Trip CTCD-583-585, 1970/2007, 3CD)
by Henry Schneider, Published 2008-01-01According to the liner notes, in 1970 Jacques Dorian, his wife German pop singer Suzanne Doucet, and their children entered the studio and recorded an obscure experimental triple LP under the name Zweistein (Two Stones). To protect her reputation as a pop singer, Suzanne and her sister Diane actually recorded this insanely weird album under the pseudonym of Jacques Dorian. Because of the limited release and its oddity, collectors have sought it for years paying outrageous prices for the vinyl. And Steve Stapleton increased interest in this obscure album by including it on his infamous Nurse With Wound list. Now, through the efforts of Japanese label Captain Trip, this odd release is available on CD to a wider audience.
