The "Dose" Psych Comps

0
0
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.

So, this brings us to "A Lethal Dose of Hard Psych", MUCH more my cuppa java......pretty obscure stuff, and much more in the style of my liking, fuzz guitars, nonsensical lyrics, etc......dig upon Catfish Knight and the Blues Express, Crystal Rain, Dutch Masters, Cardboard Box, and the Aadvarks, probably the best known band here (when the AARDVARKS are the best known act on a comp, the creators have done thier job!).......good stuff also from Mind Garage and Haymarket Riot, also regulars on several other comps.

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.

And finally....."An Overdose of Heavy Psych"......now, out of character for the set, Firebirds claim six tracks, upside is they are kickass (though fairly accessible).......Orange Wedge gives us the very good (ALSO fairly common)"From the Womb to the Tomb". Crystal Rain appear here as they did earlier, Powered By Love gives us the fairly well known "Powered By Love", Quiet Jungle gives us a good one, "Everything"......all in all there are a bunch of good tracks here but MOST OF THEM are pretty well comped elsewhere.

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!
