The bands on this selection represent the innovative boiling point of the short-lived worldwide psychedelic rock movement between 1967-71, the years when garage punk evolved into heavy psychedelic rock with its wider soundscapes and complex improvisations. Vol. 1 contains a dozen 45-rpm songs by lost psychedelic messengers (8 US bands, one from Germany, Peru and France). 

The groups are Blackrock, Sound Machine, Yesterday´s Obsession, Mastermind, Sangre Mexicana, Bhagavad Gita, Protein Bros, Purple Canteen, Los Nuevos Shains, Blow Mind and the A & B-side of legendary Dirty Filthy Mud. About half of the songs are previously unreissued and appear in stunning soundquality and with 12 p. poster-booklet. 

Enjoy this 45-minute lesson as Dr. Leary´s students would do: Turn on, Tune in, Listen again! 

This compilation series presents the boiling point of international psychedelic underground sounds between 1967-71: the years when garage punk evolved into heavy psychedelic rock with its wider soundscapes and complex improvisations. VOL. 1 contains a dozen 45-rpm songs by lost psychedelic messengers (8 US bands and 1 from each of Germany, Peru & France ). 


Dirty Filthy Mud (Track 11 + 12): 
From Oakland, California, this band recorded their only 45 at Sierra Sound Labs in Berkeley. It was issued in a thick cardboard art sleeve like the Frumious Bandersnatch and Country Joe and The Fish EP's (which explains why it is often referred to as an "EP"!). The Forest Of Black is one of the most blatantly psychedelic recordings from the Bay Area sixties scene, with wild electronic effects and druggy lyrics that seem to have been inspired by Country Joe's Bass Strings.The original 45 has become very expensive and nearly impossible to locate at any price.

It's quite complicated, but the band credited as "Bhagavad Gita" on the track "Long Hair Soulful" is actually the early James Gang with guitarist Glenn Schwartz (later of Pacific Gas & Electric). Although the song was composed by famous fluegelhorn player Chuck Mangione, whose band The National Gallery also had the alias Bhagavad Gita, they did not play on this track because they weren't a rock band, recruiting The James Gang to play incognito instead. (Source for this info: buckeyebeat.com .) Thanks for these rare tracks.
