Phenominal series of psychedelia from all cornres of our globe, 5 today, 5 tomorrow (or so).....if you are a fan of pscyh-rock, this is one of the better series EVER released in the genre (sometimes the more obscure psych bands kind of, well, you know, suck)......there is a LOT of good stuff here, a lot you probably haven't heard before, mixed in with a few well known acts. It's a GREAT series, don't know if fans of all the recent punk comps will agree, but all ya need to do is DIVERSIFY your tastes
so that they are as broad-based as my own!


OK, there are ten volumes in this series, give ya the first five today I guess and the second five tomorrow or over the weekend sometime....First up we have a set of acts from the good ol' US of A.....Damned obscure stuff, maybe you are familiar with Victoria, or Hunger, of Hickory Wind......but everything here is fairly unknown and fairly un-comped elsewhere. Volume 2 focusses on Latin America, Again, you may know Los Dug Dugs (in fact I profiled them on this blog a while back) and of course Kaleidoscope is moderatly well known, but dig into the REST of these unknown gems as well.

Volume 3 features "Asian" acts....yet another winner with the Mops (I'll HAVE TO profile THEIR brilliance sometime), Erkin Koray, Yuya Uchida & the Flowers, and lots more. ALL these volumes come highly recommended by myself (I guess it would be best to give credit to series creator Thomas Hartlage before I forget).....next, Volue 4 gives us a bunch of Japanese stuff, the Mops appear again, as do the fab Speed, Glue, and Shinky......you'll not wish to miss this one either. Volume 5 will round out today with Britain, Dark's legendary "Maypole" (one of my VERY favorite tracks in any genre) is the standout, but Dogfeet, Pussy, and Red Dirt all also make appearances.

This series is no joke and if you are a fan of 1960's-70's psychedelic rock, RUN, don't walk, to collect them all.....the next installment of the blog will feature acts from Brazil, Mexico, Africa, Turkey, and Chile, and, to my surprise, according to Wikpedia, there are MORE planned volumes in the series (Scandanavia, Italy, Germany)....personally can't wait (if true).....this is a FINE series, one of the best EVER of obscure psych and I recommend it HIGHLY to any lover of that great genre.

By the way, the model on ALL the covers is Cheryl Shrode, who appeared in Playboy in 1967.
