Primordial Lovers, Reprise 6377, is a 1970 rock album by Essra Mohawk. In 1977 Primordial Lovers was listed as one of the "25 All Time Best Albums" by Rolling Stone Magazine[citation needed]. In 2000 the album was re-released by Rhino Handmade as a 22 track collection, combining the original album with a non-album single, "Jabberwock Song", and the 1974 follow-up album, Essra Mohawk.
