ANDY WARHOL PRESENTS MAN ON THE MOON is one whopper of an oddity in the annals of '70s music and theater. It is perhaps the most complex, diverse, and utterly strange recorded offering in the musical biography of John Phillips. Conceived after the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969 as a theatrical and cinematic work by Phillips, he spent half a decade trying to realize a production that began in Southern California with numerous producers, directors, and costumers. He eventually ended up in the hands of Andy Warhol, who hired Paul Morrissey as director; Morrissey was fired by Richard Turley in favor of a more experienced Broadway director. The show opened at the Little Theater on Broadway and closed five days later amid disastrous reviews. In essence, this is for fans of the Phillips' solo recordings only, but that doesn't make it bad music; far from it; much of what is here is beautiful, haunting, wonderfully naive, and utterly canny in its cultural critique. For any Phillips' fan this set is utterly worth owning. This is early-'70s post-hippie pessimism (that the planet Earth could actually sustain life much longer) at its best.
