Yet MORE amazing rarities from the folks at U-Spaces

I'm really not sure of the U-Spaces "story", but it'd have to be damned interesting....GOD they have
so much cool shit, from that amzing 8-disc set of paychedelic radio ads (one of the greatest recordings EVER), to Psychdelic Archeology, to "San Francisco Nights" (Haven't posted that one, while it IS a bit "mainstream", it is still quite great)

Anyways, what have we here? wel, how about five MORE discs of basically unknown, obscure psych-type stuff, if you guys have been digging the recent comps, you'll be loving this one as well (probably a BIT of overlap with some other comps, but I DO try to work around that as best I can).....

So, lets start with the 2-disc set, "The Light Show".....both discs CRAMMED with the type of rarities my minions seem to have come to expect, and I am happy to present (Now, if my Facebook Friend Lennon Murphy suggests I do something else, I'd have no choice but to slavishly follow her orders.....certainly THAT is understandable?) OK, Light Show Disc 1......obviousy these "rarities" tend to turn up on more and more "rarities" comps that we uncover.......Sound Sandwich, Myddle Class, and Last Friday's Fire, while genuinely obscure, tend to turn up so often as to become damn near mainstream......kind of.......but with 32 tracks on this disc, we'll forgive some overlap, we get stuff from Younger Brothers, July Four, Cinnamon, Roman Numerals, and Sunny Monda, more than a fair share of obscure-o's and from all over the place as well. Disc 2 of the same set brings us Oxford Watchband who turn up all over these comps, but also The Skunks, The Bats, Georie Porgie & the Cry Babies (?), 27th Airborne Submarine, and simply a TON more.....by now certainly you know that the obscurities are what I'm after, and these 2 discs are full of them, if y overlook just a SMALL touch of overlap.

Gonna include 3 MORE U-Spaces comps, single discs each, all crammed to the brim with
rare/obscure tunes togive you your fix......."Fragments" includes 29 tracks.....we know Peppermint Trolley Company due to their stirring rendition of the Brady Bunch Theme (really), and The Wields Memorial Electric String Band turn up quite often (lthough they are certainly NOT to be overlooked), we also get some lesser lights such as Sky, Our Patch of Blue, Bob Rains & Admiral Strange, San Francisco Earthquake and lots more........you just GOTTA love this shit, anyone getting tired of it, even YET? PLEEEEZE tell me if ya are!

"Retrospection" give us 25 tracks......we know Whatt Four, MC2, Neal Ford and the Fanatics, American Zoo, Hex, Myddle Class, and, fankly MOST of the acts here.....procede with caution, this is perhaps the most accessible of U-Spaces rarities comps....A LOT of these tracks were featured on "Lost Sixties Delights", be careful not to double up TOO much, and if ya do, DO NOT GET PISSED AT UNCLE BIGSCOTT62.......after all, he is Facebook Friends with Lennon Murphy!

Finally, we have "Way Out Wonders".....Poor notes here, 8 tracks are creditted to "Dave Rabbit", with NO TRACK TITLES, (I AM going to research this a bit before posting)......other than that, some good stuff from Dust, Coral Reef, Foremost Authority, Golden Toadstools, PLENTY of off the wall stuff, even if I can't clear up the "Dave Rabbit" mystery

So, OK.......I go the extra mile and research Dave Rabbit.....here is what I find (thanks to the
legendary Chocoreve blog).....".All Dave Rabbit broadcast excerpts included here are from Saigon c. 1971. All excerpts have been left untitled......"The cassette from which this material originates was for sale via Rolling Stone magazine in the mid 70s. People have sold unofficial copies of the recording throughout the years, but this has never seen a legitimate release. How could it? No one has been able to publicly identify who Dave Rabbit was"................"Numerous hypotheses exist as to the identity of Dave Rabbit. Perhaps the most mainstream belief is that he was a sergeant in the air force for one year and then stayed longer in order to broadcast to the troops."........" Perhaps the most interesting speculation is that Dave Rabbit was actually an agent of the Viet Cong posing as an American to subvert troops, lower their morale and weaken them by encouraging drug use."......."Some Vietnamese bars allowed GIs to broadcast on homemade equipment with a small broadcasting range, so as to draw more GIs in the bar. The Dave Rabbit broadcast was considerably more sophisticated, with an estimated broadcast range of 50 miles or greater. Those involved apparently had professional training."......." Similarly, alternative newspapers thrived in Vietnam, at least 215 of them, although many of them only lasted one issue."......."Whatever the truth behind these broadcasts, those who’ve been fans of his for over 30 years have only been able to uncover one 3-hour broadcast, although some claim he was broadcasting in 1970 as well as ‘71." ......"Gave Dave the last word here, since he’s so good at it."........OK, I found out all that shit for ya, hope ya appreciate it, hope Lennon Murphy appreciates it (GAWD I love HER).......so dig it, I told ya I got obscure psych to burn and I was not joking.....there is more to com,WHEN YOU GET SICK OF IT I
NEED TO KNOW, and we will change gears.......ittching for some 70's punk? some 00's Stonerrock? '90's grunge? JUST LET ME KNOW.......this is not MY blog, it's OUR blog, only the CD's are MINE!
