Poobah: "Let Me In" back in print

The legendary Poobah album Let Me In will be back in print on 2LP and CD through Ripple Music. It has been considered as a cult acid rock classic and cornerstone for the stoner rock underground. From HCTF's review in 2010 when the album was reissued for the first time :

The album has become a collector's item and playable copies change hands for big bucks. Now the album is "re-unleashed" and expanded with 12 bonus tracks, the majority of which had been recorded live at Gustafson's living room in the Spring of 1973. The best of these outtakes was already cut during the original album recording sessions at Peppermint Productions in Youngstown. Going to Rock City had all the trappings of becoming a major rock anthem and with it short running time, only 2:50, it was tailor made for loud radio rock stations. Just release it as 7 inch and hand it out to jocks who don't give a fuck about play lists. And throw them a curve ball by using the sci-fi weirdness of Aww, Not Now as the b-side.

Singer and guitarist Jim Gustafson keep his freak flag flying, still using Poobah as his stage name.
