Alejandro Jodorowsky - The Holy Mountain OST (1973

Film plot in summary: A Christlike figure wanders through bizarre, grotesque scenarios filled with religious and sacrilegious imagery. He meets a mystical guide who introduces him to seven wealthy and powerful individuals, each representing a planet in the solar system. These seven, along with the protagonist, the guide and the guide's assistant, divest themselves of their worldly goods and form a group of nine who will seek out the Holy Mountain, in order to displace the gods who live there and become immortal.

If you haven't seen this film then watch it NOW! Afterwards, scope this wacky Chilean score by Jodorowsky himself, along with the inimitable Don Cherry. The album is action-packed with snippets of Tibetan throat singing, other creepy chanting, jazz, classical, authentic acid rock and even some Indian vibes.

The film is a truly bizarre experience but the score stands on its own pretty well.
Man, hallucinogenics and catholicism make for some disturbing and hilarious adventures. "We manufacture hyper-sexed, brown native vampires..."
