[1967] Stoics - Enough Of What I Need

listen to the song:

The track is awaiting you in really nice quality, not like all the vinyl rips, that are circulating here araound, ... I mean, they are better than nothing, but with this title as example, you know, what I mean ;)... the guitar riffs are giving a lot of rythm, the voice, surrounds it and the backchor for the refrain still makes it more psychedelic: the floating feeling. Some of their tracks can be found on the Mindrocker, the Acid Visions and the Teenage Shutdown Vol. 10. On the bands lifetime, they only released on single "Enough of What I Need / Hate". William Ash (guitar) later went to The Argyles and The Children (1968, Rebirth), where members from the 13th Floor Elevators played after they disbanded in 1968. The Golden Dawn was also a band, where the Rubayyat sourced their members from.

[1966] Outcasts - Hard Lovin' Babe

listen to the song:

I know, it sucks, but the exact record date out there. the band never rleased it on 45, and also they propaply never did an album. 1966 is again just guessed. Ok, and now I will give you some lines I found on yoututbe about the girl, that is singing on this heavy-drum garage-psych track:
Linda Pierre King was a folk-rock singer from Houstan,Texas.Eight of her recordings are featured on The Heartbeats & Added Texas Girls of the 60s/We had the Beat compilation. She moved to New York and frequented the famous beatnik hangout, Beanie Baby's Java Hut. The "king of barbershop" Norm Wooster fell in love with her singing and caused a musical transformation within him. She was also a follower of the individualist philosopher Ayn Rand. The Outcasts, who backed her on this organ-driven track, are not the legendary 1523 Blair band.

[1966] Things - In Your Soul

listen to the song:

Comming from El Paso, Texas, they only released one Single in 1966 "Take It From Me / My Love". This track is from the Acid Visions Vol. 1, so I think it was prev. unreleased. No info to find, so I just guess it was recorded 1966 or 1967. Nice Organ driven Garage Rock will expect you! Enjoy! Greetings, Amadeus :)

[196X] Pearl Divers - Riding On A Rainbow

listen to the song:

this song is taken from the acid visions compilations. sailing the web, I found no bottle within a message for me, telling me, when this song was recorded, or even, who the Pearl Divers are... how can that be? welcome to the big world of psych comps, ... :D... well, nice soft psychedelic with echoing voices and nice lyrics... It sounds like it was recorded between 1966 and 68. Enjoy! greetings,
amadeus :)

[1968] Orphan Egg - Falling

listen to the song:

In 1968, the Orphan Egg did a an selftitled album. this is the first track of it and maybe the highlight along the other 11 tracks. Fine psychedelic Rock with a bit echoing voices, some fuzz and a really psychedelic atmosphere. You can download the complete album on hippy-djkit's Blog. Enjoy, greetings, amadeus :)!

[1970] Bob Smith - India Slumber

listen to the song:

here you've got the only really psychedelic song from his 1970 Album "The Visit from Bob Smith". The rest is Classic Rock / Westcoast Rock with some seldome fuzzin' guitars. All in all the album is highly overrated in my opinion. But anyway, this song is really nice, with flowting sound & sitar, enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

[1967] Bill Plummer & Cosmic Brotherhood - Journey to the East

listen to the song:

The cover doesn't look like what is inside! Flying trough the desert, a sitar on your fold, riding in coloured clouds of acid fog. One of the finest Psych Folk I ever heared! you can download the complete album on Dr. Schluss' Garage Of Psychedelic Obscurities. Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

[1967] Kim Fowley - Reincarnation

listen to the song:

well, the cover is an imagination of love, peace, incense and pot. The soft psychedelic sound of the album really fits in. this song is the best one from this (his first) LP and a bit different from the rest, lets say, more garage-psych like. the rest of the album has nice playing on the instrument but very poor vocal quality. also the mixing could had done better than it is. Maybe a remastered Re-Issue from the original reels could fix that so I would rate the album with 4/5, not with 3/5 stars.

[1968] Aphrodite's Child - The Shepherd And The Moon

listen to the song:

On theire 68 Album “End Of The World” I never thought, I will find a non-psych-pop track. But “The Shepherd And The Moon” is an exception. Nice psychedelic folk with a bit medieval -arabic singing is waiting! Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

Strangers Family Band - 2009 - EP (60's Psychedelic)


(Review taken from Valis)
If the Doors & Kennelmus had a baby, the Strangers Family Band is their love child!

At seven tracks this EP never wears out welcome, nor-just like a good Stranger, overstays. From the mood-setting/changing opener "Enochian", (well, it would be an opener wouldn't it?), we know we're entering another world. Sound creating a travel ticket. Perfectly segueing into "Girl I've Been Taken," from all sides of the spectrum-in my Sennheisers, this reminds me substantially of those 70s desert-dwelling, peyote-munching psychsters Kennelmus. That's a compliment where I come from.Stylistically, this track also seems to lean more on the early 70s period of psychedelic music.

Track 3, "Wooden Hands", further bids you to come into their funhouse mirror world o' weird. A Music Hall romp with horn-backed chorus.

Track 4, "No One Sees Her", maintains the vibe of the prior tack, set up nicely by a small-stringed instrument-ukelele? Mandolin? and shuffles along right past the tilt-o-whirl, a la The Seeds "Nobody Spoil My Fun."

"Strange Transmission" should be familiar to regular readers of this blog for its inclusion on this year's Summer Solstice, Volume II compilation. Opening with SITAR (!), this is pure Doorsian wobble, a long-lost companion and heir to "The End." At seven minutes it's also in the right proportion, too.

"Tangerine", to these ears wouldn't sound outta' place-at all, on the Brian Jonestown Massacre's albums, say circa Methodrone. Complete with Anton-like affected Engle-accented vocals.

The EP ends with "Beware The Autumn People", a trip into an alterniverse where the only song anyone's ever heard is "Soul Kitchen"! Yet these guys manage to somehow break the stranglehold. A slow-burning center to propel it and a swagger which demands attention from your third eye.

I'll stand by my assertion, made earlier, these guys are a product of a Doors-Kennelmus tryst, made one night out near the old prison town of Yuma, a bag of peyote being passed around, and after enough digestion the guitars and percussion come out as a crescent moon slowly rises overhead...those sounds? They entered the Noosphere and were caught in transmission many moons later by a group of guys trying. Trying. As long as they're doing so I'll keep buying the string of tickets from the barker...

[1968] Boeing Duveen & The Beautiful Soup - Which Dreamed It

listen to the song:

as promised, the second side of the single "Jabberwocky/Which Dreamed It" (Parlophone R 5696, A - May 1968). This one sounds not as the other song, it's really fine acid folk. Sitar, flute, water and soft male voices, sounding a bit like Amber. well, I just can say, get that song and the single, listen to it and fall into a deep trip in mind! Get it here:

Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

"Boeing Duveen & The Beautiful Soup was the mastermind of Sam Hutt (later; Hank Wangford - more info's...), known by the British sixties counterculture as a "rock & roll doctor" who administered to musicians and practiced homeopathy and holistic medicine. He also dealt with drug casualties at rock festivals." ~"Tapestry of Delights Revisited by Vernon Joynson

[1967] Phluph - Another Day

This song sounds like Jefferson Airplane or Peanut Butter Conspiracy mixed with some underground psychedelia and very early Pink Floyd. They released an self-titeld album in 1968 (Verve 5054).

[1967] Los Mac's - Dear Friend Bob

listen to the song:

Los Mac's is one of the very rare psychedelic groups from the 60's in Chile. Some weeks ago I read an interview with the group where the band leader, I think, talkes about all that crappy studio equipment, they had for their first 2 albums, that mostly contained cover version. For their third album "Kaleidoscope Men" they had better conditions. At that time they started to record their own songs, wich sounds much better and had a really fine kind of psychedelic in it (the same for the last album). This Song is taken from Los Mac's "Kaleidoscope Men" (released 1967). It sounds a bit like those acid songs from the Beatles, as I compiled them on "Colored Psychedelic Smoke & LSD Glasses", with many psychedelic dubbing effects. Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)
