Back in 1988 Masters of Reality dropped their self-titled debut on Rick Rubin’s Def American label. Now the album is getting the reissue treatment along with their 1997 concert recording How High The Moon: Live At The Viper Room. Delicious Vinyl is behind the December 11th re-release package.
Despite being from Syracuse New York, Masters of Reality may be best known for their connection with the desert rock circuit. Singer/guitarist Chris Goss has worked on numerous albums by Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age and was very involved with the various Desert Session recordings.
In honor of these albums once again seeing the light of day, the band recently premiered footage of the band performing John Brown live in the studio from 1990. Take a close look as that is legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker pounding away on the skins.
