In 1992, Michael Knott’s band L.S. Underground released their rock opera The Grape Prophet. It tells the story of Ellis, an orange picker who is sent by his boss Col. Peckesen to rescue his fellow pickers from the clutches of the Grape Prophet, who has lured them away. Both sonically and lyrically, the album was a revelation, and has remained a favorite of fans and critics ever since.
Originally released on CD and cassette by Knott’s own Blonde Vinyl Records, the album has been out of print for over 25 years. The new reissue features a fresh remaster from Adam Boose, along with new acoustic recordings of four songs from the album, complete with string quartet!
