This fascinating counter-cultural nugget--supposedly the lost tapes from a rehearsal in the Hollywood Hills in 1973--finds Children of the Sixth Root Race (an offshoot of the Source cult's house band Spirit of '76) branching off in a drastically different musical direction from their spiritual guru, Father Yod. Other Yod-related releases foreground deep-psych experimentalism and a primitivist bent not unlike early Amon Duul, but SONGS FROM THE SOURCE reveals a tight band with some surprisingly straightforward choices.Led by guitarist Djin, Children of the Sixth Root Race--not unlike many of their secular contemporaries--tackle soul- and R&B-inflected '70s rock. Women with names like Cinderella, Vibration, and Aquariana act as a gospel foil to Djin on songs such as "Godmen," a rousing groove that could be from JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, and "A Lady," a piano-led stomp that wouldn't be out of place on the '70s pop charts.

The lyrics--with concerns such as living "in harmony with cosmic law" and "dancing through your mind"--are where the collective shows its colors as long-haired freaks, but they are delivered with an earnestness that'll win over even the most cynical ear.
