Some "non-series" psych comps

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.

From DB records comes "Relics-Collector Obscurities From the First Psychedelic Era '66-'69" which,
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.

Tomorrow? Something, I have as little idea as do you as to exactly what.......
