Kit Ream - Introuniversal Jam/Don't Be So Holy Poly Over My Souly

Jello Biafra in the book "Incredibly Strange Music Vol II" writes:

The most deranged "rich person do-it-yourself" album is All That I Am by KIT REAM, heir to the Nabisco cookie fortune. According to someone who knew him, he dropped tons of acid in the '60's and wound up in a mental hospital where he spent six months staring at his own reflection in a mirror. Eventually the acid wore off, he was deemed "cured" and let loose in society, whereupon he decided to become a guru and make a record. From his maniacal expression you can see that this is a man who has seen it all and knows that he has "the answer". The songs are light beatnik jazz mixed with pseudo-psychedelia; he chants lines like "Don't be so holy, poly, over my soul-y." As far as I know his cult is still vastly outnumbered by Maharaj Ji, Rajnessh and the Moonies.

Wasting time, lovin' all the work you did, then I came across this reference, "his cult is still vastly outnumbered by Maharaj Ji, Rajnessh and the Moonies." Just so you know, Maharaji (actually, that's an honorific, his given name is Prem Rawat) does not lead a "cult." He's my teacher, and he's actually pretty cool. No money or membership involved. No big thing, just thought I ought to mention it. Keep up the good work.
