Songs of Experience (1969) is visionary composer/arranger/producer David Axelrod's second album; it was recorded after the death of his beloved son Scott. Experience is an ominous affair, an album concerned with mortality and spirituality – the solitary, pastoral musings of William Blake set to the urban bombast of a full Los Angeles orchestra, with Wrecking Crew vets grounding the proceedings with dark funk. This is the second Now-Again issue in a series of reissues centered around Axelrod's Capitol Trilogy in 2018 (also includes Song Of Innocence and Earth Rot). The audiophile vinyl reissue was lacquered directly from Axelrod's original master tapes at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster and contains an oversized booklet delving into Axelrod's incredible life and music, replete with never before published photos and an interview with Axelrod by Eothen Alapatt and Waxpoetic's Brian Digenti.
