"Alex Sanders is the most powerful witch in Britain. Here, for the first time, he presents a full recording of the solemn initiation of a new member into the ancient Craft."...it says here.
He's the bloke on the cover who looks like a former homeless alcoholic who's moved on from begging for small change outside Sainsburys to taking his clothes off to initiate attractive young women."
Luckily, we don't get to see Alex full frontal, as he conducts the ceremony in sound only, with totally inappropriate lush string sections singing merrily in the background, chugging out Wagners 'Ride Of the Valkyries', like a binned episode of 'The Onedin Line'.Up front is the hilarious whispering commentary by Stewart Farrar as if he was describing a Royal wedding, or a Snooker match.
Sanders: "Blessed be thy Breasts formed in Beauty"
Farrar: "He kisses the left Breast and the Right Breast"!?
Yep, religions are all invented by dirty old men alright.
The naked young woman called Janet(? the witch?) then gets tied up and lashed by the the nude former-pisshead. I think i'm going to be sick....just check out those pictures on the cover,like a Wiccan copy of Health and Efficiency magazine.
This ceremony is soooooo old and ancient that,like the Bible and God, the Wiccan tribes spoke in 16th century Shakespearian English.
God and his counterparts was seemingly very English.
