Out of the 28 tracks i liked 21 very much. It was a revelation to
hear great Psych. tracks by the Tremeloes, and Marmalade!!
the majority of tracks are jolly, whimsical and full of spangled
instrumentation. I was impressed by the two tracks by 'Blonde on Blonde', and pleased to discover from the inner notes that they have a back catalogue available (as do The Rockin' Berries, Marmalade, Episode Six, and The Flying Machine.)
I reccommend anyone who enjoys the silly psych. Beatle songs
of their later years will find a lot to enjoy on this great
compilation..I would also recommend tracking down the 94 same label compilation of 'Paisley Pop' which has other tracks by Anan,The Flying Machine, The Montanas,The Onyx,and Consortium. And if you like Folky rock, i also recommend the superb 'Jingle Jangle Mornings' which has another Montanas track on it, along with lots of other wonderful, quintissentially English, slightly eccentric stuff by other great obscure bands.
Also you may like to check out the 'Tommorrow' CD which has the original (and frankly, not very good) versions of '3 Jolly little dwarfs' on it, and 'Real Life Permanent Dream'. But there
are some really great songs on there also, including 'Your time has Come', 'shy Boy' '10,000 words in a cardboard box' and 'hallucinations' which are about as Beatlesque as you could wish for.
if you like to sample late 60s obscurities - dive in
