- 08/06/13--14:11: Some "non-series" psych comps
Stepping away from the recent psych-onslaught and back with some more garage rarities, very little
overlap with the earlier sets. Pretty diverse and random set of cuts from damn near everywhere on the planet.......Volume 1 gives us 18 tracks from NINE different countries, they seem pretty much thrown together without much rhyme/reason, BUT these are some pretty rare tracks. This disc gives us "My Little Girl" from Chubby Checker and the De Maskers (remember the ultra-incredible psych album from Checker I posted long ago? This would be from that same era).......from Japan we get Yuzo Kayama & the Launchers "Black Sand Beach", Los Yorks "Just Like Me" (from Peru), Les Hou-Loops give us "Thank the Lord for the Night" (Canada), and the Stone Cutters chcek in with the stranely titled "Fellow Slave".......there is a LOT more random cuts on here, not really crazy about the sequencing, but the rarity of the tracks in general saves the day.
Disc 3 is an ALL USA set, again, obscurity is the number #1 quality here......Riders of the Mark, The Volcanoes, The Hard Times, The Sirs.....hardly a houehold name in the bunch.
Now before the track lists, I want to repeat something you may have missed in Saturday's "Comments" section......here is the story recapped: I posted the first 3 discs of "Psychedelic Pstones", did not have the fourth, and asked if any "friends of the blog" could help out....I specifically thought of and mentioned Jose, and sure enough he came through he almost always does, the link for the set, in case you missed it is HERE http://www45.zippyshare.com/v/3634391/file.html in case you missed it, the track list for the set is under the "Comments" section of "Psychedelic Pstones".....anyway, Jose also (VERY POLITELY) added that he did not care for the photos of women used on this blog occasionally.....I've
been known to use them every now and then just as eye-candy, the two specific instances he mentioned were "Cambodia Rocks" and "We Can FLy".......in THOSE TWO specific cases, here is what happened.....I could find NO information on "Cambodia Rocks", no song titles, no band names, and thus could search no pictures of the bands, album covers, etc......SO, rather than leave my blog unadorned with pictures, I opted to find me some hot Cambodian women and put their pictures up........(someone later came through with band names/titles so I guess i weren't so lazy I could have seeked out some other pics, but I did not. Now, "We Can Fly" is a bit of a different story: I was talking about my Facebook feindship with Lennon Murphy, and posted some topless pictures of her that were TAKEN FROM HER OWN WEBSITE. I love Lennon Murphy and if she were to object to the photos I would remove them in a second.......I've
SLOBBER? Let us put it to a vote I really AM interested and MIGHT just abide by the outcome......under comments, simply say YES (if in favor of occasional Babe-age), or NO if NOT in favor of such......(currently 1-1, counting MY "yes" vote and Jose's "no" vote).....please, no name calling, no arguing, this is an HONEST DIFFERENCE OF OPINION and I would just like to know the prevailing attitude. I have always assumed my readership was probably about 95% mal, but I could be wrong about that as well......) So please take a minute to comment your feelings on this subject. I want AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to be happy with the contents of this, what is FIRST AND FOREMOST A MUSIC BLOG, and my "personal touch" happens to be that I am 51 year old perv with a passion for smoking hot women........but I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.......please. And keep it polite as the original commenter (Jose) most certainly did!....Jose, even though we are on opposite sides of the fence on this one, I still consider you one of the BEST and most helpful of the MANY GREAT "Friends of the Blog"......I hope this can just be accepted as an honest difference of opinion
LETS DIG EM UP DISC 2-01 THEE IMPALAS-Oh Yeah!/02 THE MOON DAWGS-You're No
Good/03 JACK BEDIENT & THE CHESSMEN-Glimmer Sunshine/04 THE RUBBER MAZE-Won't See Me Down/05 THE ASTRONAUTS-Tomorrows Gonna Be Another Day/06 THE GANTS-Smoke RIngs/07 OSCAR & THE MAJESTICS-House of the RisingSun '69'/08 ERIC & THE NORSEMEN-Norsemen's Theme/09 THE ROCKING GHOSTS-Djengis Khan/10 THE ENTERTAINERS-Crazy Miss Daisy/11 LES SERPENTS NOIRS-Be In/12 RAY BROWN & THE WHISPERS-Help Me/13 THE CHARMS-The Count Game/14 ERIC CHARDEN-Amour Limite Zero/15 BILL KIMBAR & THE COURIERS-Be Mine/16 THE SHAKE SPEARS-What Happened/17 JOHNNY KENDALL & THE HERALDS-Jezebel
Oh, and by the way, probably no post until THURSDAY.....me and the Mrs are going away for a little Casino visit for a couple nights........be splittin them ace's and eights, and maybe come back with a huge wad of CASH.......or, maybe NOT too......see you slugs on THURSDAY!
This is a really good set, allegedly put out on a label known as (wait for it) "Arf Arf".....there are four
discs here, for the most part fairly obscure stuff, and no doubt, this is pure psych stuff, NOT punk/garage stuff......
OK, the first, and I think weakest of the four sets is "A Heavy Dose of Lyte Psych"...."light" (or "lyte") psych being my least favorite strain of the herb, as it gey dates horribly and winds up sounding like humorless hippie pretentions.......but, anyway.......25 tracks here, and some are pretty decent, in particular "It Just Won't Be That Way" by the Gurus, and the fairly readilly available "Haight Ashbury" by Teddy & His Patches......alot of this, I personally would not wish to hear more than once, but I'm sure some of ya LOVE this kinda (Chris Carpenter, Id, Ballroom).......have at it. I find much more joy in the other three discs.
Next we have "A Deadly Dose of Wylde Psych", probably the most obscure collection in the set......Chocolate Moose turn up fairly often, I guess, but other than that we get Oscar & the Majestics totally fab version of "House of the Rising Sun", Wet Paint sounding something like the Electric Prunes, Sweet Cherry sounding something like Iron Butterfly, some good hard riffing from Nite Watchmen......it's a treasure chest for those of us who cannot get enough obscure wah wah pedals and fuzz riffs.......not to be missed.
All in all, if you think of this as a "set", you'll want em all, the first and fourth ones I mention are probably the least interesting for different reasons, the middle two are pretty much must haves.......choose wisely grasshopper, or, just get the whole set, what do you want for nothing anyway?
Still waiting for people to give their opinions on my personal perverted penchant for featuring
smoking hot women on my blog.......SPEAK UP!

The first three discs of six, focussing on the type of obscure British psych that so many love and
treasure, lots of these guys obvioulsy had heard a Pink Floyd or Beatles album before, but gain, if you love this obscure stuff, then blah, blah, blah, I try to keep the overlap to a minimum, blah, blah, blah.....
First disc is highlighed by Fire's great (and easilly available elsewhere) "Father's Name was Dad".....Les Fluer De Lys, The Craig, Wimple Witch, and the Voice have shown up here and there, nost notably on "Nuggets II".......still, Him & the Others, Paper Blitz Tissue, and the Tickle, among others, turn in some fairly obscure efforts
Volume 2 features a bunch of repeat acts from Volume 1.....A LOT of SONGS repeated also, if memory serves me, Volume 2 came from vinyl, Volume 1 may have been a CD reissue contianing both volumes 1-2......sort it out, if you need ONLY grab "volume 1" here, then do so........if there are a stray track or 2 left then grab them as well.......it'll be ok, just some "repeated" tracks
Tomorrow Volumes 4-6........
VOLUME 1-01 THE VOICE-Train to Disaster/02 THE NUCHEZ-Open Up Your Mind/03 ONE IN A MILLION-Double Sight/04 PAPER TISSUE BLITZ-Boy Meets Girl/05 THE PLAYBOYS-Sad/06 THE FIRE-Father's Name was Dad/07 THE POETS-Wooden Spoon/08 LES FLUER DE LYS-Circles/09 THE HUSH-Grey/10 ONE IN A MILLION-Fredereek Hernando/11 APPLE-The Otherside/12 WINSTON'S FUMBS-Snow White/13 LES FLUER DE LYS-Mud In Your Eye/14 THE CRAIG-I Must Be Mad/15 WIMPLE WINCH-Save My Soul/16 THE ACCENT-Red Sky at Night/17 CHAPTER FOUR-In My Life/18 HIM & THE OTHERS-She's Got Eyes That Tell Lies/19 THE TICKLE-Subway (Smokey Pokey World)/20 THE SYN-14 Hour Technicolor Dream/21 THE FACTORY-Path Through The Forest

Again, this set, as I have it, is a bit of a mishmash.......I've had is so long I don't recall from where Ihttp://www.soybomb.com/garage-comps/classic/index.php?field=Title&term=c ) and copy the track lists, download MY stuff and program them as you like, leaving off the repeated tracks, and you should have a "perfect set"......me, I'm going to upload them AS I HAVE THEM, I know there is some duplication, but more importantly, I don't think there are any MISSING tracks......the set was issued in a different formats (LP, CD, even tape), so it might take just a bit of work on your part to get them, how you want them exactly. Good set though, more psych-pop from Europe and beyond.......
got it, I'm guessing (from the strutcures) that some are vinyl rips, and some others(with more, but often repeated, material) are rips of extended CD's......I think all the material (all 6 volumes) is HERE, too much work for me to strip this down to the correct sequences......if you like, go to Garage Comp Database (here:
Now, Volume 6 is not even listed on Garage Comp Data base......it's only NINE tracks, and I THINK without checking, you can do it easilly) ALL NINE appear on some of the earlier CD
OK, here is what I WOULD DO......download everything (unless VOlume 6 is completely useless, check that out first) and I WOULD GUESS you can put this whole thing, without any repeat material, on 4, or possibly even 3, 80 minute CD's......it's gonna take a little programming to get it just how you want it, but I think you can get the whole series in a lot more of a condensed version than my own. If someone with more time than myself wishes to construct a perfect 3 or 4 disc set, and post it here, do so with my blessing!
VOLUME 5-01 THE QUOTATIONS-Cool It/02 THE TRANSATLANTICS-Don't Fight It/03 THE
LONGBOATMEN-Only In Her Hometown/04 THE WAYS AND MEANS-Breaking Up a Dream/05 CHORDS 5-I Am Only Dreaming/06 THE MOVING FINGER-Shake and Fingerpop/07 THE AUTHENTICS-Climbing Through/08 THE MICKEY FINN-Garden of My Mind/09 THE FORCE FIVE-Baby Let Your Hair Down/10 ST LOUIS UNION-British Tea/11 THE MAGIC LANTERNS-I Stumbled/12 THE BAD BOYS-She's a Breakaway/13 THE SONS OF FRED-Baby WHat Do You Want Me To Do/14 BOO & BOO BOOS-Oriental Boo/15 MIKE RABIN & THE DEMONS-Head Over Heels/16 CALEB-Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad/17 WAYNE GIBSON & DYNAMIC SOUNDS-Baby Baby Baby Pity Me/18 THE PETARDS-Tatarex/19 THE J&B-Wow! Wow! Wow!/20 KING SIZE TAYLOR & THE DOMINOES-Thinkin/21 THE FOUR SQUARES-Don't You Know I Love You
there was ANOTHER volume 3 that was released on CD/LP......VOlumes 4-9 follow a more conventional LP/CD format, but the first three is kind of confused. As always, for clar the "go to" site for such things is
That'll straighten things out. As for the music? Well, about maybe half would qualify as "unknowns", but after stuff like "USA Garage Greats" and "Mega Nuggets" (both strictly internet creations) there is BOUND to be some overlap by this point in time.
Volume 4 leads off with the great-but ridiculously over-comped "Story of My Life" by Unrelated
Segments, we also get We the People, Mouse & the Traps, Apollo's Apaches, all well known but none of whom are represented by their best known stuff......The Parrots give us a cool version of "Put the Clock Back on the Wall" that I've never heard of other than here, Sotweed Factor, Beautiful Daze, and the Bit A Sweet are obscure enough to merit inclusion.
By Volume 6 I think the compilers were running out of stuff and REALLY DID have to focus on "unknowns"......so much the better: The Bugs ("Strangler in the Night"!, The Flys great "Be What You Is", Cucumber, Friday's Keepers, Beautiful Daze with the second half of their earlier single......another good disc.
The Guess Who, of all people, not to mention the 1910 Fruitgum Co. turn up on Volume 7, strange choices, but interesting ones.....First Crow to the Moon, Magic Mushrooms, Human Instinct, and New Breed are all half-way well known (and solid picks, too)......Knights of Day, The Furniture, Badd Boys, and the Esko Affair would rank as lesser knowns, I'd say.
Finally Volume 9.......highlighted by "Jack of Diamonds" by Daily Flash which generally turns up on Northwest comps and rarely then.....other than that, again, the set up to it's name/theme.....Undesyded, Erik & the Smoke Ponies, Hysterical Society, Peanut Gallery....make note of a good track from Oscar & the Majestics ("Come on Willie").
All in all this pretty much lives up to it's name,
unless you are addicted to this stuff like some of US are (that's why we're here, right?).....Probably could have been brought in at about 6 discs or so by leaving some of the better known stuff off, but they really did empty the vaults and there is a lot of variety, a lot of obscurity, AND some good damn songs that I hadn't heard other than this comp......and wouldn't that be exactly what we'd want in a comp such as this?
firstname.lastname@example.org) or simply upload it to my blog's comment section. I didn't even know there was a volume 4 until Jose mentioned it, but I checked and indeed there is.....I've never seen one, though, so if anyone has it, sounds like you could do us a real favor by sharing quite a rarity......back tomorrow guys! Have a great week!

Now, guys, THAT THERE is a POST!!!!Hope you like it, I keep thinking I'm going to run low on
these comp series, or that overlap will just render them redundant, then I remember a set like this, or a few others that have at least, say 75% non-overlap material......So, I'll keep in this mode for another week or two, but I am going to say I am starting to get JUST A LITTLE bored with the concept, and need to break out some Jesus Lizard or something just to unclog the sinusses a little!
Really should have posted this one before now, it's rare, it's informative, it's entertaining, and several
of it's discs are broken down themattically.....aOT of bands are examined in broader depth than just a single track, which I usually think is an interesting thing (now always the most listenable, but at least interesting......
DIsc 1, entitled "Don't Put Me On", features a bunch of bands, in genral represented by two tracks each, not sure if each is a single A/B side, but very obscure and interesting all the way down the line.....We have House of Commons, Kings Court, Pagens, and best of all Felix' take on "A Whiter Shade of Pale" which is not like anything at least I have ever heard.
Disc 2 is called "Never Existed", why? I have no clue.....Persian Market offers up a version of "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White",the Chaparrals clock in with "Blues from a Jefferson Airplane, and the final 5 tracks on the disc are Alternate Versions, Demos, and Unedited Studio Versions from Basement Wall, Penthouse 5, Chevelle V, David Sanborn, and Lemon Fog....a must for completists!
The third disc is 1963-65 Folk-Rock, not a HUGE favorite of mine, acts include the Sting Rays, Beats, Mods, London Knights, Maltees Four, FBI, and Shillings.....I bet for some this is a treasure chest, me, not really so much.
Disc 4 is called "The Psychedelic Sixties" and brings a slew of rarities, Laughing Kind, Living Ends
, Captain Crunch & the Bunch, Cellar Dwellers, Brother Love Congregation and lots more. Rare, rare stuff, barely ANY overlap with any other sets I've given out.
Now, Disc 5 changes gears completely....."Unreleased Garage Band Demos, 1966-68".......dominated by the Missing Links (9 tracks), and Lemon Drops (6 tracks), with the Nuchez and Morning Dew thrown in, this is stuff you'll probably hear no where else......might not WANT TO either, but again, it's the rare, the obscure, that we seek out, and an unreleased batch of tracks from Missing Links certainly fits that definition.
Disc 6, also is enititled "The Psychedelic Sixties", but features only two bands, District Six (any "Hunger Games" fans?) and the Nite Owls......Need to point out that District Six brings us their version of "7 & 7 Is", which is still miles behind "Gloria" and "Hey Joe" in THAT particular competition.
VOLUME 7 regionalizes things, "From Texas to Tucson", as I've spotlighted both regions before, maybe there wilsome cross-over here, but not coming blazin back.....we get the Shandells Inc, Shadows, Rocks, Lewallen Brothers, Feathers, and The Marades....again, listenable ahing if not interesting!
The 8th and final disc goes back to random rare tracks, from a variety of obscure acts, Wild THings,
Quintette Plus, Unknowns, and Sensacionals.......
A good set here.....not so much one you'll be playing time and again, but for sure one of historical curiosity.

OK, let's break away from the "singles" format and get into some harder-core psych, this might be
more along the lines of "We Can FLy" or even further out there....it DOES cross over into the 70's, also, but this is true HEAVY psych, after all the pop-psych of late it'll be like a breath of stale,
marijuana smoke filled air!
Three discs in the series, the first, "Gathering of the Tribe", gives us something of an odd mix....Larry & the Blue Notes check in (with a good and lesser known tune, and Josefus gives us the viscious "Dead Man" (I have that album, seek it out a classic of early 70's hard psych!).......other than that who wouldn't want some Indian Puddin' & Pipe, Macabre, The Plague, and more.....this MIGHT not appeal to some fans of the recent posts, but I felt the need to change it up just a little, and any chance to hear "Dead Man" is worth it at least.
Finally, "Valley of the Son of Gathering of the Tribe" is fairly dominated by It's All Meat (4 tracks, but worthwhile), also Mary Butterwo, Talula Babies, Fraction (kind of an obscure favorite of mine from the much more virgin territory of early 70's hard psych.....someone should get busy and start comping all THAT stuff!)
Ok, good set here, a LITTLE different, and yet a little the same with some overlap, hope ya like it,
and there are still more of em coming.....I do in fact have a handful of comps with fairly obscure early 70's hard psych, maybe eventually we go in that direction......Fraction, Dark-E, Stray Dog, Indian Summer and lots more uncovered greats need brought to a new audience, after all.......anyway, leave a comment, or at the very least a blank prescription pad signed by your physician.

Are there more discs involved in this series? Kind of hard to find info....I looks like there MAY have been a 5-dis box set, which I assume includes the 3 vinyl originals above, plus ???????? If you know anyng about it, please do your duty and SHARE, or at least INFORM!
I have put up a BUNCH of stuff this weekend, originally planning to take a fairly light work load, but
Love ya all, thanks to all the friends whom help me out (I'd name some but I'd be so upset that I'd forget someone)
Might as we clean off the shelves, we have a few more of this type of set to go, this being a three disc
set of non-USA garage/psych type stuff, in general of the lesser known variety. Volume 1 is sub-titled (I don't make em up) "Oil Emulsion Slyde Vs the Fairy Feller's Master Stroke"....26 tracks, mostly pretty obscure. I remember Alan Avon & the Toyshop showing up here just recently, but not so much The Blue Jeans, The Kinetic, Tangerine Peel, Virgin Sleep, Enough's Enough........tell ya, we could probably scup bands like this until the literal end of time!
Volume 2 ("Blocked! Rare Beat and Psychedelia") is interesting in that it gives us six different tracks by UNKNOWN ARTISTS, which you must admit, it would be hard to get much more obscure than that. The Craig also turn up as do John Lee's Groundhogs, the relationship between TS Mcee's version I am uncertain of.
By the way, Jose left a comment under "Psychedelic Unknowns", I THINK he may be alluding to more volumes, but it is in Spanish, so if any of you bi-lingual types can help me out I would appreciate it!

Comments? Requests? Pictures of your neighbor's (of age of course) daughter? Let us know you're still alive!....
And now about tomorrow......well, for one thing I'm heading out tomorow evening to see my pals from Samax play a set.....these kids rule as I've told you before, so there is a CHANCE I may not post tomorrow....(good chance actually).......if I DO NOT, however, wait until Wedensday-Thursday, when I am going to treat you to one of the greatest compilation sets ever concoted on this planet, or on any other planet.....you'll not want to miss a SECOND of it, you'll want to be FIRST IN LINE to grab it.....what is it? HA. Just wait and see. Wedensday, unless I get the first part ready tonight, which is possible,unlikely!
I TOLD you guys todays (& tomorrows) posts were going to be nothing short of kick-your-ass, smash your head against the wall for pain meds works of total greatness.......I did not fail in my quest for the truth!
OK, stepping away more and more from the Nuggets-style comps, we have this dandy set of bizarro
ACID rock......I would say this is to the left of what we generally call "psych" even, this is an aptly-titled set. TRULY forget where I got it, internet information is kind of sketchy, I know I've had it a long, long time.....I am THINKING that it is an "internet creation" ala "Mega-Nuggets" or "USA Garage Greats" or any of Katrakyla's comps, and things in general run around sets that are limited by a label or something, as they are true "labors of love"......like I say I am unsure as to this sets origins, but it at least has the "marks" of an internet creation, not that it matters, really, because this is some great and bizarre music, and cuts across all eras. Drop yaself a tab and stare at the ceiling and dig up on this one, all, ahem, ELEVEN discs.......(six today, five tomorrow, OK?)
The second disc contains many MORE of my favorite early 70's
freaksters......Mgen, Tiger B Smith, Sex, My Solid Ground, The Gods.......incredibly fantastic stuff, and, like before, I have hit only random highlights, didn't mention Bedlam or Mountain, or Yesterdays Children, or..........
Volume 3.there is NO let up, how about Music Machine's "The People In Me", a somewhat rare 13th Floor Elevators cut, Arthur Lee, Orang-Utan, Ryg I Ryggen, Fraction, and a bunch of stuff that is not even all that familiar to ME, and we are on MY turf now......San Ul Lm, Navath, Zior......by now you are either salavating, or hoping I get back around to "Dutch Nuggets" or something.
Disc 5 leads off with one of my very faves, November's "Mount Everest" (I did a full November post last, uh, November, my cleverness never fails to amaze me), Neon Rose is another I've featured, unfortunatly not my fave "Love Rock", but still a good one, Ravjunk (freakish guitar stuff), Rg I Ryggen, Kebnekaise, Traed Groes Och Stenor take on "All Along the
Watchtower"......lots of foreign language stuff here, and you know I love that stuff, and if you got enough blotter in ya ya probably understand it anyway.
OK, this is for a little bit different audience than I've been aiming at lately......this is for you hippie scum (like, uh, well me) who are now 50 and still love to trip (drug-free trip of course) out on some of bizarre sounds of our youths...perhaps you know someone who is not a blog regular who will enjoy this set please let them know. Unfortunatly there are NOT a whole bunch of comp sets of th's fairly untapped material, but this is the stuff I grew up on, i love every last second of it, and I will be thrilled to death if some other old timers dig it to OR if I bring it to a new, young audience for teh first time.......five more discs of it tomorrow, please please please please please please comment on this set and let me know your thoughts.....unless your mind is completely blanked out

Unlike so many of the Nuggets-type psych bands, many of these are more album oriented acts, and yours truly happens to have several hundred of these particualr bands albums.....I've featured several of tehm in individual blog posts in the past, but this is the stuff I know a little about
if you'd like to see, say a post on
Kebnekaise if you'd like to see, say a post on or Rag I Rygen or whomever, there is a good shot I can take care of ya.....ANYTHING YOU GUYS WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, did I not present as one of the greatest of all comps? Was I not correct? Well, if you area fan of
early 1970's tripped-out heavy acid metal, how could you disagree? Six killer discs yesterday with so many, many greats of the genre/era......and remeber, we are on MY turf now, this stuff is a TRUE labor of love......not that the other stuff ISN'T, I love it all, really, but THIS STUFF is probably, with a gun to my head and forced to choose ("Alright, I'm giving you the count of THREE to name your favorite of all musical genres/eras, and if you don't, say GOODNIGHT.........1........2....."), well, maybe this would be my choice.......anyways, a great set, as I said yesterday a probable "internet creation" which are always a lot of fun because they ARE true "labors of love".......five more discs today, so lets take a quick look at what we have
OK, Volume.......again, where can I even begin? Hilary Blaze, Wildfire, Iron Claw, Icecross, St. Vitus, Wicked Lady........how many greats of an era/genre can we fit on a disc? Not to mention Blue Beard's take on "Paint It Black", great shit from Hand of Doom, Pentagram, Sorcery.......seems to be just a bit of a "sorcery/witchcraft/satan" theme running through this disc to a degree, and without any Black Sabbath or Black Widow (too mainstream? ha, ha)......
Volume 9 includes some MUCH more modern-day stoner rock, say, from Electric Wizard, Sheavy,
and Wolfmother (if I'd compiled the set, as great as they all are, I'd have likely saved them for a different comp, but who the hell am I to argue?),but also greats such as Abramis Brama, Rosetta West, and Orange Alabaster Mushroom........more "dark" stuff here, too, from Burning Sav, Witchcraft, and Lucifer Was, interesting to compare, say, Sheavy or Electric Wizard with their "grandparents", kind of an odd programming mix, but there is NOTHING in these 11 discs NOT to like (for me anyway).
Volume 10 opens and closes with a couple of previously unreleased Jeff Beck jam, includes The Who (!), and the Bob Seger System (!) but also the forgotten-but-great "Run Run Run" by Jo Jo Gunne, some Wishbone Ash, Plum Nelly, and even Nazareth.
So, whoever created this did a fine job, but once we are programming The Who and Bob Seger on a set such as this (where are Stray Dog? Dark-E? Captain Beyond? Hawkwind? honestly there are about 100 other bands I'd like to have seen included here) the creator might have started either losing interest, running out of material/ideas, or simply has a different view from my own on this "sacred" music.
Wrapping up the set, Volume 11, is probably the least accessible disc of teh set, a couple tracks are demos (from War Cry and Cirith Ungol), quite a bit of foreign language stuff (which you know I love), all in all a pretty obscur selection,best knwon act probably being Bad Axe and a damn fine way to wrap up the set........
OK, I want comments......this is a little different from what we've been doing lately.......this is MY
TURF, the music I REALLY grew up on (rather than the music I waxed nostalgic for, ala the "Nuggets"-style sets, and I'd really LOVE to hear opinons on this set......there are NOT a lot of comps of this type/style/era, this one is fairly unique, and as I've said before, it's an obvious "labor of love".....catch ya tomorrow!

That's right, you get NOTHING. Why? Because the blog has been removed. Again. This is not just ANY blog, this is not like the nonsense you are looking at NOW, created by some half-assed 50 year old with a somewhat esoteric taste in music.......this is goddamn CHRISGOESROCK.......if you are
Chris Goes Rock has overseen some of the absolute greatest blogs in the history of the internet.....before the "blogger" era, he was creating incredible music Torrents, I THINK (can't validate) that he created the wonderful "MegaNuggets" set that so many of you have enjoyed my repost of......"People" have been screwing with him for YEARS, getting his blogs taken down, he starts a new one, it gets taken down, and on and on......WHEN he gets started
Chris Goes Rock is a VALUABLE RESOURCE. For one thing, he (almost literally) has every CD/album ever made by anyone......and he is MUCH, MUCH more knowledgeable about all types of music than someone like, say, me, or nearly anyone else. We can learn so much from him, hear so much otherwise unavailable music because of him and his tireless efforts......HE IS NOT THE ENEMY.
Chris Goes Rock wants MUSIC to be HEARD, the way it was
MEANT TO BE...HEARD It's MUSIC Goddamnit, if you can't HEAR it, what the fuck good is it? The ENEMY is anyone who would stifle the efforts of someone who works tirelessly and without compensation to get unique, rare, or otherwise little known music to a new audience. This bullshit DOES affect YOU, because they'll be wanting ME taken down soon enough too, be certain. Now, that isn't shit......I'm NOTHING.....but the point is this is the fucking internet, OUR fucking internet, and it is the last bastion of FREEDOM (and that just barely).......raise hell, bitch and FIGHT THE FUCKING POWER, because once the internet is where the ENEMY wants it to be, finding ANY music more imaginative than the Archies is going to be a thing of the past.
Again, PLEASE download these, if you don't want
FIGHT THE POWER and PLEASE DOWNLOAD THESE GREAT DISCS! FOR CHRIS!
DISC 2-01 THE MISUNDERSTOOD-Little Red Rooster/02 ELECTRIC PRUNES-I'll Drag You Home/03 STATUS QUO-Paper Plane/04 STEPHEN STILLS-Love the One You're With/05 AMBOY DUKES-Mississippi Murderer/06 THE ANIMALS-Baby Let Me Take You Home/07 THE BYRDS-Wild Mountain Thyme/08 THE DEVIANTS-Screwed Up/09 THE DOORS-Maggie M'Gill/10 THE KINKS-Pictures In the Sand/11 THE PEANUT BUTTER CONSPIRACY-Free/12 THE ROCKETS-Hole In My Pocket/13 THE SEEDS-Nobody Spoil My Fun/14 THE UNDERDOGS-Wastaing My Time/15 THE WHO-Magic Bus/16 THE YARDBIRDS-I'm Confused/17 THE ZODIAC-Aries the Fire-Fighter/18 TOTTY-Crack In the Cosmic Egg/19 TRANSATLANTIC RAILROAD-Fried Chicken Blues/20 TUCKY BUZZARD-Mistreating Woman
OK guys, PLEASE DO THIS FOR ME........not only will you be helping me to make a statement, but you will certainly pick up some fine tunes along the way as well. Fight the Power guys, there is so little we can truly DO, but at the very fucking least, we can be HEARD.
Wouldn't want for ya to think your strange uncle was running out of 1960's obscurities after a couple
of days of early 1970's and beyond hallucinagenic treats, but here we have the CD versions of "Circus Days" which was yet ANOTHER set of (mostly) British pop-psych nuggets.....gotta be SOME overlap with some of the other sets, but my goal is for you to have every last bit of this stuff that I can scrape together, and these are pretty good, CD rips I got from a buddy of mine a while back......originally these were six vinyl LP's, the CD reissue compresses it down to four fairly loaded CD's.
The first CD (comprising of LP's 1 & 2) features Kid Rock (no not THAT one, LORD....), Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Penny Peeps, the very underappreciated Arzachel, Alex Harvey, The SMoke, and Blonde on Blonde, so not exactly a bunch of no-names, but also some lesser luminairies such as Head West, Vashti, Nick Garrie, and the Fingers......2 tracks, more than just a curiosity, listenable and enjoyable.
The third disc, I kid you not, is entitled Volume 4&5.......perhaps
these are metric conversions, ho ho.....anyway, 25 tracks here, this one pretty much on the side of the obscurities as well, Cardboard Orchestra, Peter & the Wolves, Secrets, Clover (don't miss: thier "psych version" of "Ice Cream Man")........if you enjoyed the others sets such as "Hens Teeth" and maybe "English Freakbeat", likely you'll drool over this as well.......
OK, Disc four, clever titled "Volume 6", continues to pile it on.....Pattern People, Juice, Leze Majesty, Queen Flora's Recollections, The Majamood.......basically another good, thorough, comprehensive set of exactly what it intends to be......good, but somewhat unknown, psych-pop for the UK ca. Mid-60's, and what could be wrong with that? Just what I thought!

Well, my drug-addled memory keeps causing me to forget great comp sets I've overlooked....I'd have
thought overlap would be the biggest enemy by now, rendering most sets I could post as to be redundant. Not so "Syde Trips", seven more discs of, as the title might indicate, obscuritites from around the globe, focusing on more of the great psych-pop we can never (evidently) get too much of.
Volume 1.....well, if any of this stuff is familiar to you other than from this set, you should be starting your own blog and sharing this stuff (as I have said there is a VOID in the blog world as of late!)......The Poets, Maniax, Purge, Giorgio and Marco's Men, and Blackthorn Winter are not exactly common names on the shelves of most of us. Volume 2 varies the concept a bit (for the better) as The Lost, Mic Read, Amber, and Just Plain Smith each get a deeper look, 3-5 tracks each, kind of wish that on collections structured as such they'd GROUP EACH ACT TOGETHER BY ITSELF, rather than randomly scattering the order, but mine is not to question why I guess.
On Volume 3, Jason Crest gets five tracks, other than that the acts get 1 or 2.....Enough's Enough,
Tidal Wave, Harverson Apricot, not to mention Charlotte Black's version of "So You Want To Be a Rock N Roll Star")......only the best in obscurity! Fourth disc brings us yet another wave, The Mode get 3 tracks, elsewhere, Tinkerbell's Fairydust, Complex, CMJ, and the Montanas, among others, get the usual 1-2 track look.
Volume 5 keeps bringing them out.....Toast, Killing Floor, Doves, and the Geranium Pond, whose "Marshmallow Man" turns up as both track 10 and track 13. An OBVIOUS classic! Volume 6 features the very freakish The Phoenix, also Tropical Fish, The Summer Set, Solent, and a few more. The final set offers up The Brain, Those Fadin Colours, The Outer Limits ("Not Your Steppin Stone"), The Snappers......
OK, here are 7 MORE discs of relatively little overlap with my other comp
sets, hope you guys like this it's a really good one for lovers of obsure psych (I look at it as kind of a "negative image" of "Back From the Grave", which was ALL punk, NO psych......this one ALL psych, ZERO punk......both great sets, for, of course, lovers of their specified genre.

Trip away, hope ya be digging these.......thought I'd be long out of em by now, but actually there are a few more, so, well, we'll see.....and PLEASE continue to show support for the deposed ChrisGoesRock by downloading the 2 disc ChrisGoesRock Psychedelic Favorites......it is SYMBOLIC, of course, nothing more, but please JUST DO IT in order for Chris and the rest of teh blogging universe to know that we do, indeed, CARE about OUR internet, it's freedoms, and it's ability to allow music lovers to SHARE.....and as I've stated 10000 times before, it should be evident and obvious, but I guess it isn't......so, SHARING IS A GOOD THING. SHARING IS A GOOD THING. SHARING IS A GOOD THING.
Get it, I hope?
This is a set of ten discs, from here, there and everywhere, again, quite obscure.....little what we'd
refer to as "psych" on this one, more garage/beat/punk-rockin stuff......again, I sense very little overlap, but this stuff runs together in my mind, it is POSSIBLE that there is TONS of overlpa with some of my other sets, but it doesn't seem that way.....breaking it up in two parts this time (shoulda done so with "Syde Tryps" as well), but these are vinyl rips and FAIRLY skimpy, so it won't take me THAT long five discs today, five more tomorrow, capice?
Well, Volume 1 gives us some semi-familair names from other comps, such as the Beathovens, Thor's Hammer, Other Side, and Blue Aces, not to mention lesser know (to me at least) combos ala Horanges, The Throb, and the Principals....sometimes I swear my posts must just sound like "shopping lists" of goofball band names, but it hasn't been THAT long since I've listened to some of these and they really are quite rewarding.
Volume 2 returns a couple tracks from Thor's
On Volume 3 the Rythym Checkers give us a fairly frantic "Long Tall Sally", also we get some interesting stuff from The Moondogs, Leather Souls, Soul Agents, and Cool Stove, among some others. Volume 4 gives us the Richard Wright Group (Pre-Pink Floyd? I would check except I can't imagine a circumstance under which I would care any less), The Hoochie Coochies, The Specatacles, and the Shanagaans......."interesting" is the word I've used the most here, but this set is also quite listenable and entertaining, even if maybe a little on the long side (five discs might have been fine, I don't know).
Wrapping up today's post will be Volume 5, with tracks both "interesting" and "good" from Toni McCann & the Blue Jays, The Morloch, Hugo, and Pilgrims Five.......Historians should bust another nut over this set, lost of non-overlapped stuff, and FIVE more full discs of it tomorrow!

OK, I skipped yesterday for some personal reasons, here is the rest of the fine "Diggin For Gold" set,
really good and fairly obscure garage/beat/semi-punk semi-classics from around the globe......hope you enjoy the rest of em.
Well, Volume 6 rounds up a bunch of your fave non-descripts, Bean & Loopy's Lot, THe A-Cads, Rick & Sandy, and the Upsetters take on "Daddy Rolling Stone". Volume 7 brings us a few slightly more familiar names from some of the other comps (Thee Sixpence, Billy & the KIds, Moxies) and a whole bunch of othrs such as Plain Brown Wrapper and TOmmy THompson & CHP. 17
Volume 9 features maybe the most obscure batch of bands here (truly sayng something), THe Jaggers, Crystal Revelation, Knights of the Road, and the Piggy Bank ring no immediate bells with Uncle Scott anyways......and Volume 10wraps it up with a few frequently comped acts such as The Barons, Sanz, Incorporated, Thee Sixpence, and the Tidal Waves.......certainly you have the idea by NOW!
WOW, who was that guy so long, long ago that was
pissed about the "nuggets"style posts......can't even recall his name, he was a real dick about it and I just started dragging them out. Never REALLY guessed I had THIS many, and there, yes, are more to come, and now, I may as well finish them up.....

Selfish? Well, OK....."Pebbles" is up around 30 or so volumes, the earlier ones on Bomp and the
latter ones on some Bomp subsidiary.....I have MOST of them, but I'd like to have the complete set, AND I'd like YOU to have the complete set too, if you'd like, of course......so I'm missing, I don't know, 5-6 of them maybe? I'll note the missing ones here, and each day during the ONSLAUGHT:
I AM MISSING VOLUMES 12, 16, and 17.......best as I can tell there are 28 official volumes, there are also "Pebbles Trash Box" and some others, NOT concerned about them right now.....let's just see if we can find a copy of 12, 16, and 17, that will fill out MY set, and in the meantime of course, help yaself to any of the 25 volumes that I DO have, and, hopefully in the end we will all have a COMPLETE set
of "Pebbles" (I have the "Trash Box" sets too, we'll see if they need to be posted or not"......
OK, fairly skimpy volumes, lets try five a day for a few days....the early volumes are almost not
worth a mention if you've been following along, most EVERY track on them is going to be overlap with some of the other comps we've done, but this is a somewhat legendary set and it'd be great if we collectors/completists could have the WHOLE set if we desire so!
don't "need", The Electric Prunes radio spot is even a fairly common one, "It's Cold Outside" by the Choir, Bobby Fuller's "Wine Wine Wine", Zakary Thaks "Bad Girl" and "99th Floor" by Moving Sidewalks turn up often enough, a bit more obscure are tracks from Quid, The Avengers, Road, and Undesyded.....you know how it is, if ya want, program your own "Pebbles" with thet tracks I haven't already blessed upon you!
Volume 3 ("The Acid Gallery") features familiar stuff from the Bees, Teddy & the Patches, and Third Bardo, but does treat us to some more obscure stuff by Driving Stupid, Jefferson Handkerchief, Adjeef the Poet, and Catfish Night.....argueably the most essential disc of the set as MUCH of this stuff generally gets left off the "Acid" comps.
By Volume 4, the Bomp folks are ready to go all obscure on us, as it should be......lots of surfin' type
stuff from The Bleach Boys, Del-Vettes, Riveras, City Surfers, Ragamuffins.....very, very worthwhile. And Volume 5 features the well-comped "I Wanna Come Back (From the World of LSD)" By Fe Fi Four Plus 2, but for the most part, this is a selection of moderate rartities, Merry Dragons, The 12 AM, The Time Stoppers, and Danny & the Counts.
OK, grab the ones ya need, or all of em, tomorrow volumes 6-10, but remember BigScott62 DOES NOT have VOLUMES 12, 16, and 17.......so be on the lookout!

I had a plan, this Pebbles thing was gonna take all week, BUT thanks to the efforts of Francois and
Psyclist, two great friends of the blog, it would be a serious redundancy to post the remainder of the set.....if YOU need a disc or two, simply look under the comments section of the first (only) Pebbles post, and you'll be able to find anything you need by following the links, including The Trash Box Sets, and the Essential Pebbles sets......the blog friends have done an excellent job this time (as ALWAYS!) as I have captured the volumes that I needed as well.......but.....
What am I to do now? I usually (believe it or not) think these things out ahead of time a little bit at least....I have PLENTY more sets of this nature, but it takes me a minute to go sort/organize them, and in all honesty, I had I think two or three of the remaining Pebbles posts already written and some even uploaded.......I don't want to alienate the Pebbles/Nuggets crowd by switching gears TOO much TOO quickly, but I kind of got trapped in.....trust me there will be PLENTY more 1960's garage/psych sets yet to come, I am even amazed myself as to how many I have yet to post.
But, again, what to do TODAY? Be like Andy Kaufman, I guess, and
delight in giving the audience what they DON'T want? Well, hopefully not.....but I am going to COMPLETELY change gears just for today at least, bringing you the amazing nine-disc unabridged Monterey International Pop Festival Set.....why? Oh, I don't know.....it's damn good, for one thing, a friend and I were just listening to some of it the other day for another, and I think it's (in this format) FAIRLY rare, I've seen a few of them.....I mean there were a few official releases from the festival, the most notable being the great Hendrix/Otis Redding album, couple of others too I think, but I think that THIS set is as close as we can get to the ENTIRE Festival. Hope you guys enjoy this, it's a change of pace, and if you DON'T go for this, please don't abandon me, I got LOTSA
Disc 1 is a dandy, actually, the first songs we hear are from, of all people, The Association, with a stellar version of "Along Comes Mary" and a decent "Windy" as well....next up Lou Rawls gives a few numbers, including "Tobacco Road", one that I nearly always enjoy no matter who is doing it. After a Johnny Rivers "Memphis", we get a set from the Animals, wish they'd have worked my fave "Sky Pilot" into the set, but it's not bad.....highlighting disc one (other than, for my money, The Association) is a long set from Simon and
Garfunkel, they were on their game on that day....again, maybe this is not for you guys who've been so into the Nuggets things, but expand your horizons for a minute, OK?
Disc Three is dominated by the underappreciated
Paul Butterfield Blues Band who turn in a fine set, followed by single tracks from Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Steve Miller Band, closing with a fairly good set from Electric Flag. Could have used a little more Steve Miller in his pre-fame days myself, but that's just me.....
Disc Five gives us a bad-ass set from Jefferson
Airplane, they are in excellent form and tear through a set of some of their greatest tunes, Booker T & the MG's provide an interlude before Otis Redding's famous (from the Hendrix/Redding recording) set.
Disc eight starts off with a mercifully short Grateful Dead showing, before the Jimi Hendrix set tears
up the speakers, MAJESTIC versions of "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Wild Thing", as well as a bunch of his standards, (are ya REALLY gonna do it BigScott? Ah, why not?) including his version of that rarely covered, obscure chestnut, "Hey Joe" (I'm sorry, kind of), all of it sounds great as most live Hendrix sets do, I wish I could have seen him, what an incredible stage presence he must have cast....as I said before, most likely you are familiar with this Hendrix set, but it is obviously worth hearing in this context as well.
For a two-day festival, I think the nine discs here capture the essence of the era as well as we could reasonably expect.....I understand that Big Brother played a set each day, but REALLY two versions of the same track? Well, I don't know, wish I'd have been there though, because the sets from Hendrix, The Who, Butterfield, Jefferson Airplane, and the Byrds are all fantastic to these ears at least, most of the filler is at the very least interesting, and hey, at least they didn't give us a whole disc of the Grateful Dead (although I think there may be an official recording of their entire performance from the Festival, unsure and won't be seeking it out)
So, enjoy this set, and don't be a snob.......there was more music out there in the late 1960's than the
obscurities we've been devouring of late. This is really worth owning, unless you have some kinda "mainstream phobia" or something, it's a TRULY good set, and I THINk it's fairly hard to find although I could be wrong about that.....and remember, go to the COMMENTS SECTION of the PEBBLES post, follow the proper links and get ANY of the 28 discs you may be lacking, also the "Trash Box" set, and the "Essential" set......and thanks a million to both Psyclist and Francois for cutting my work down by so much......just had to give some extra thought as to what I was going to do today......hope it's not too much of a switch, it's for all my "hippies" out there!

Back to normal after a one-day "hippie holiday"......really, surprised myself that I haven't put these
yet, they are LOADED with tracks that I think are exclusive, pretty much to this set, each disc is stacked with 25-30 tracks, and I really don't remember seeing these aroundnet all THAT much (although I'm sure that is where I picked them up).....for the most part these are some rare and obscure shit, so if you missed out n your fix of such stuff yesterday, take a deep breath!
TONS of rare stuff on Volume 2 as well, 30 tracks and MOST of them I think are found pretty muchy here....randomly: Hyperions, Try-Angle, Conner Family, Baroque Brothers, not to mention the Edicates from Columbus Ohio (about 45 minutes from my home) and Us Too from Fairfield Ohio (about an hour in the other direction) neither of which I had ever heard, prior to this set.
The third volume adds a bunch of equally obscure Candian bands, such as The Stitch In Tyme, The
Nocturnals, and the Esquires, to compliment thier USA bretheren such as The City Zu, The WordD, Dalek & the Blackstones, and Sugar Cube Blues Band...honestly, this is a fairly amazing undertaking, my hat is off to Kumquat May (no, really) Records for their ability to compile stuff THIS out-there without having to resort, really at all, to standard stuff that is comped regularly.....this is a GREAT set for those in the mood for TRUE obscurity.
And so the series wraps up with volume 5. Threads of Fybre, 8th Wonders of the World, The Media, Southampton Story, The Hustlers 4, The Drop....I could go on and on, but really, you HAVE to get the idea here....there are a couple Painted Ship tracks that you may have heard before, and "Who Dat?" by the Jury is semi-known, other than that, well, this is for all you guys who were upset yesterday over the Jeffereson Airplane/Byrds/whatever ( if you WERE...I don't want to say that actually happened until it really does)!
Again, enjoy this set.....many sets portend to be rarities collections but "flesh out" the concept with
fairly well known or easy to acquire stuff.....not so in this case, these are five discs of stuff that I'd guess at least 90% of which is unique in my own personal collection, and that is saying something. these quick!

VOLUME 4-01 THE TREEZ-You Lied to Me
Don't miss this one guys, I'm tellin ya!
Just thought of putting these up.....if ya enjoyed the Monterey set (response was pretty favorable),
here is a good companion piece, again compliments of the wonderful folks with the overstuffed vaults at U-Spaces.......
"San Franciscan Nights" gives us eight discs of may of the West Coast bands that appeared at Monetery, in some rare live performances. I can't remember where I got these, but I really don't remember seeing them all that often, this is really good stuff if you are of the mind for it.....
Disc one starts out with an intro from (yep) then-California Governor Ronald Reagan, then gives us a great set from Jefferson Airplane (Fillmore 2//4/67), good versions of the obvious ("Somebody To Love", "White Rabbit") and the not-so-obvious ("3/5ths of a Mile in 10 Seconds", "She Has Funny Cars")
Disc Three features a brief set from Mother Earth
(no idea, honestly), studio stuff from Oxford Circle and The Sons of Adam before we get to the good stuff, a set from the Matrix (no date given) by Great Society, don't know about anyone else but I've personally heard VERY little live stuff from them.
The fourth disc is dominated by The Charlatans (!), a long set from 1965, followed up with three tracks from the Grateful Dead, and capped off with one of about 75 available live versions of "NSU", a great track, always fun to hear live, and one that I really DON'T need another version of, this without question the least worthy disc in ther series.
Disc 6 is totally taken up with a Matrix set from The Steve Miller Blues Band, be amazed if you are only familiar with their post 1970's pop/rock stuff.....a little heavy on the instrumental jams, but I assume, like Cream, that was their deal in concert.
And so to Disc 7. Starting off with The Daily
Flash, we then get a return engagement from Country Joe the Fish, followed by the rest of the disc being filled in with The Sons of Champlin, maybe file this one alongside disc 4 if you are picking and choosing here.
Most of Disc 8 is taken up with jams from Santana, and capped off with a couple from It's a Beautiful Day......aquired tastes both, I'd say, in different ways, but both very representative of the time/place.
Pretty good and (I think) fairly rare set here, hopefully it isn't up on some other site today like yesterday's "Gravel" posting (a lot of work by me relatively wasted, but, so it goes), I assume the fans of the Monterey set will enjoy this or at least parts of it.

Comments please? This is kind of a curiosity more
than something you're going to sit around listening to unless you're a fan of one of the featured bands, but to me it's a DAMN interesting period piece. What do YOU think?
Gonna have to do a few of these types of posts now and again too, as there are, believe it or not, some
actual single disc psych comps (actually I thought about the ten-disc "Green Crystal Ties" but it seemed like a bit too much work)....
OK first up, let's go with "Psychedelic Voyage-26 Tracks of Rare 1960's Psych", which in and of itself I can find next to no information on, so I guess it is something of a scarcity.....you've gotta LOVE the inclusion of Flower Travelling Band who rarely make the psych comps (I did a full post on them a while back with I think their complete works, check the archives, don't know if it's still available or not, guessing not) while they aren't exactly all that "rare", there are some pretty obscure ones here as well: Lewis and Clarke Expedition, The Rugbys, Fickel Pickel, and Almond Lettuce, as well as, for good measure, some Vanilla Fudge and The Smoke, well known names for certain but good tracks nonetheless, and ANY Vanilla Fudge that isn't "Keep Me Hanging
On" (honestly you'd think that was the only song that very solid psych band ever did) is welcome.....
Next up is "Mind Blowers", again, kind of hard to find much information about this release, and really it edges over into some non-psych garage-punk, BUT there is some good and obscure psych here, The Travelling Salesmen and the Spikedrivers contribute good tracks that are rarely comped, the "find" here is a Doors rarity, "Go Insane", which is actually quite awful but exists nowhere else that I am aware of. The Id' "Boil the Kettle Mother" merits an mention too as a truly oddball track.
while a little thin at 14 tracks, is quite interesting for the inclusion of Hot Dog Stand, The Eyes, The Undergroundtake on "Psychotic Reaction" and the Soulbenders interperetation of "7 and 7 Is".....Bubble Puppy makes an appearance as well, but much like the earlier mention of Vanilla Fudge, the fact that it is NOT "Hot Smoke and Sassafrass" is at the very least refreshing.
Another set for which I find very little info on is "Hopelessly
Obscure 60's Psych, which, honestly, does live up to its title for the most part......best known here are Crystal Rain, other than that, The Omen and Thier Luv, N. Patrick Williams, Love Chain, and The Fourth Way, among others, appear on very few other comps that I am aware of other than this one.
And since you guys are such a wonderful audience, allow me to present yet one more tidbit today: "Journey To a Higher Key-The Best of Sitar Psychedelia Volume 1" (as far as I can determine there never was a volume 2)......this is either for you or it isn't, myself I enjoy it in small doses, (I wouldn't want to sit through the much better known and multi-disc "Psychedelic Sitar Headswirlers" series, not even sure if I have it anymore) in the right frame of mind this can be amusing and entertaining.....enjoy at your own risk and please don't take it as seriously as the creators did.
