2020 repress. Recorded on a low budget in early 1968 by students in Oberlin, Ohio and originally released in a run of only 300 copies, Ant Trip Ceremony's only album, 24 Hours, remains very of its time, typifying the zeitgeist of a late 1960s America abundant with the music of an inspired generation. The presence of a "Hey Joe" cover and the album's current status as a reissue beg for it to be interpreted through the lens of Lenny Kaye's influential 1972 compilation of proto-punk, Nuggets, and 24 Hours fits predictably into that mold. The band's version of the standard lies somewhere between The Leaves' frenetic original and Jimi Hendrix's laid-back, downtempo interpretation with the album's 11 other tracks accordingly straddling the line between raucous garage rock and gauzy psychedelia.
