C.A. Quintet – Trip Thru Hell, Vinyl, 1969 ($2500+)

Trip Thru Hell by The C.A. Quintet released in 1969 and was the only album by this Psych Rock band that was active from 1966-1971 in America in St. Paul, Minnesota.

C.A. Quintet was one of the best local bands at the time in Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul), and if Trip Thru Hell was distributed globally, it could have been more popular. Nevertheless, with the passage of time, Trip thru hell has won the recognition of collectors around the world, just like many records of similar rarity, and today it is highly sought after.

The most expensive album copy has been sold for $5656 in August 2014 and came directly from the hands of Ken Erwin, the guitarist of the band.

Musically, Trip thru hell is an excellent record, even though its DIY production is obvious. The sound of the trumpet with Latin flavors gives off a unique tone to the sound of the album and in combination with the Dark Acid Rock elements, they make up a unique musical result.
