Ray Manzarek The Golden Scarab cd
A 2016 repress of the 2004 Lemon label CD.
 
Originally released in 1974, The Golden Scarab was Ray Manzarek's first solo album. 
 
Featuring a 1970s supergroup of guests (Larry Carlton and Joe Walsh on guitars, Tony Williams on drums, Patti Smith, Flo & Eddie and more), the album's eight tracks flirt with Doors-esque grooves and mystery as well as Fusion and Funk influences.
