TRACK LISTING is Identical to Deluxe CD Set.
Malicious Vinyl proudly issues a gatefold LP set from heavy rock legends Masters Of Reality, combining
their 1988 debut album Masters Of Reality with 1997's How High The Moon: Live At The Viper Room.
Both of these heavy rock thrillers were captained by Masters Of Reality founder and frontman Chris Goss.
Fans of Queens Of The Stone Age should recognize the name Chris Goss. The Godfather of the California
desert rock scene that blossomed in Joshua Tree, Goss produced QOTSA's breakthrough album
'Rated R' in 2000 and received a Grammy nomination for his work on their 2007 release 'Era Vulgaris'.
Masters Of Reality has the distinction of being the only artist signed to both Def Jam and Delicious Vinyl.
Originally label mates with Public Enemy and Slayer, Masters Of Reality's self-titled debut album was
released by Def American in 1988. Two years later, Delicious Vinyl founders Matt Dike and Mike Ross,
huge Masters fans, bought the band's contract from Rick Rubin and re-released the album to renewed
When Masters began disintegrating on tour, Goss relocated to Los Angeles and rebuilt his engine in the
form of a new line-up of the band. That's the revitalized line-up that recorded the stunning live album How
High The Moon: Live At The Viper Room.
High points of this release include “Magical Spell", restored here to its majestic five minute lascivious
trawl, and the live rendition of “John Brown”, which swings like a guillotine as perhaps only Led Zeppelin
ever had before.
