Kopter and the (Fabulous) Twirly Birds is a 1972 studio album by Randy California. This album was recorded and released following Randy California's departure from Spirit. Spirit's fourth LP, Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus, reached the charts but took an inordinate amount of time to receive attention (the album would eventually be certified gold by the RIAA in 1976).

Guitar, Lead Vocals – Randy California. Illustration – Joe Garnett. Other – Dee Dee Louis.

Kopter and the (Fabulous) Twirly Birds was Randy California's debut solo album after leaving Spirit, and thus, expectations were high. California, still only 21, opted to return to the influence of his early mentor, Jimi Hendrix, who had died in 1970. California wailed through a series of tunes in a style more reminiscent of the extended arrangements of Electric Ladyland than the tight psychedelic pop singles on Are You Experienced. Beatles songs like "Day Tripper" and "Rain" became almost unrecognizable frames for California's improvisations

This album was recorded and released following Randy California's departure from Spirit. Sardonicus, reached the charts but took an inordinate amount of time to receive attention. The album would eventually be certified gold by the RIAA in 1976. Following the departure of Jay Ferguson and Mark Andes in early 1971, Spirit recruited John Arliss (and later John Fine) on bass and resumed playing live shows in March 1971"  . The album was also heavily influenced by the death of Jimi Hendrix in 1970, who had been friends with Randy since they played together in Jimmy James and the Blue Flames. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. 1972 cult rock album by ex-Spirit member.
