Aleister Crowley’s Ancient Recordings Now Available on Vinyl

Anyone who follows the spectral otherworldly dabblings of certain rock stars (Jimmy Page, Ozzy) will know about Aleister Crowley, a weird English occultist who died in 1947.   During his lifetime, he recorded some of his thoughts on ancient Edison wax cylinders which were later transferred to 78 RPM records.

Now those recordings have been re-released on vinyl.  Brush up on your Enochian (a magic language of the angels) and follow along wtih “The Call of the First Cthyr.”
