Bobb Trimble is a cult collector's wet dream. Forever destined to be on the far fringe of the music industry, his records were criminally overlooked for many years before someone somewhere stumbled upon a dusty used vinyl copy of Iron Curtain Innocence and said ,"Holy shit - this is amazing!" and decided to take action to get his work re-released. Jupiter Transmission is the result of one such discovery. It's a CD compilation album consisting of a choice selection of tracks from his first two LPs, Iron Curtain Innocence and Harvest of Dreams. This is a bizarre one, even for the neo-psych crowd, most noticeably because of Bobb's otherworldly falsetto voice (which is so high pitched it almost sounds feminine at times) and the hypnotic arrangements backing it. Each song an entrancing entity, woven into a web of mystique and euphoria. Trimble's music is like regular psychedelic music on acid; way, way out there, but also a must have for anyone with a piqued interest in the genre.
