Syde Trips

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.

Be good to one another and be back tomorrow, unless the powers that be kidnap me in my sleep tonight......

SHARING IS A GOOD THING. SHARING IS A GOOD THING.

Get it, I hope?
