A classic 1967 Elektra edition, conceived by label head Jac Holzman (who claimed that the success of The Doors was a primary inspiration for the project), the Zodiac's 'Cosmic Sounds' is a concept piece based on the twelve signs of the Chaldean astronomical zodiac. It combines the music of electronics pioneer Mort Garson, performed on early Moog synthesizer by Paul Beaver, and the words of Jacques Wilson, delivered in a Morrison-esque style by the Iranian-born folk musician Cyrus Faryar, a man Holzman dubbed "the Persian minstrel of Barham Boulevard".

Also available: COSMIC SOUNDS (PURE PLEASURE) (LP), COSMIC SOUNDS (RHINO) (LP).
