Sacred Bones are reissuing a holy grail on the resale market, a 1976 album from Mort Garson

Mort Garson's much sought-after 1976 album Mother Earth's Plantasia is set to be officially reissued for the first time.

Sacred Bones are overseeing the reissue of the album. Original copies fetch hundreds of pounds on the resale market, while the album has also fallen victim to bootleg reissues in the past.

The album was originally recorded as an accompaniment to Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird's book The Secret Life of Plants, which made the unusual claim that plants enjoyed music. The album was recorded especially for plants, and came with the sub-title, "warm earth music for plants…and the people that love them."

Sacred Bones' reissue is out digitally today and physically on June 21. You can find out more about the original album and pre-order it here.
