Population II & 8 Bonus Tracks
Population II & 8 Bonus Tracks

Price: 13.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Randy Holden Population, 13 Oct 2012
Guitarist Randy Holden played in various bands during the 1960's including the Other Half and Blue Cheer.In 1969 he released what possibley could be one the best psychedelic rock albums .This album is up there with the likes of Cream and Hendrix.If you like your psychedelic music with napalm guitars you are in the right place.The orginal album is extended with bonus tracks and these are as good as the album tracks.This is 79 minutes of balls out rock n roll .Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb box set, 11 April 2011
This review is from: Those Were The Days (Audio CD)
The other reviewers have perfectly described how good this box set is. All i wanted to add is if you are looking for a excellent example of 1960's psychedelic (acid) rock buy this box set.The live version of white room blows me away.After 2 verses there is a short pause before eric claptons wah wah guitar solo comes in and sends the crowd wild. This is why cream were so influential on the San Francisco music scene.These guys were the cream!

5.0 out of 5 stars Of course its good its the Allman brothers band, 13 Sep 2010
This review is from: Win, Lose Or Draw (Audio CD)
After a unbroken run of 5 classic albums expectations were sky high for this album in 1975.Perhaps there lies the problem why this album was not well received.However if you enjoyed the previous albums you will find much to appreciate.All the hallmarks of the allman brothers sound are present, outstanding guitar and keyboard interplay plus a 15 minute workout "High falls".I am pleased i bought this album by one of the great American Bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Psych Classic, 10 Oct 2009
This review is from: Shiver (Audio CD)
Shiver were formed in texas and moved to san francisco where they recorded this heavy psychedelic rock gem in 1972.I had read a few reviews of this album and it was described in glowing terms.When i played the album it blew me away these guys can rock i was very impressed with guitar playing in fact the three of them make a great noise.Recommended and buy it while it is still available.The mp3 download album that is listed on the album details on amazon is not the same as the cd and appears to be a different album This review is for the cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars HP lovecraft live may 1968, 2 Jan 2009
This review is from: Live - May 11, 1968 (Audio CD)
HP Lovecraft produced two superb psychedelic rock albums in 1967-68 and are well known to psych fans.If like myself you wondered how they sounded live then i can recommend this album and is well worth buying.the sound quality is good and the group produce a great performance of material mainly drawm from their first album.The organ playing is superb and they create a real psychedelic experience combined with acid rock guitar playing.the dual vocals are also impressive.The album is around 45 mins long and some of the tracks are extended versions compared to the studio tracks.My only complaint is the album is not longer

5.0 out of 5 stars Blues guitar playing at its best, 5 Aug 2007
This review is from: Boston Blues (Audio CD)
Once in a while you discover an album that is everything you love about guitar driven rock.This album has it all.The twin guitar assault with great tunes recorded live far out do the studio recordings of the the band. Definetly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Obscure Psychedelic Gem, 5 Aug 2007
This review is from: Wilkinson Tri-Cycle (Audio CD)
Released in 1969 and little is known of this power trio who are thought to be from Boston.Various styles of american psychedelia are featured on this album from bluesy acid rock to commercial songs.If you are into this type of music it is well worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hard hitting collection of bluesy acid rock, 5 Aug 2007
This review is from: Moloch (Audio CD)
moloch were formed in memphis in 1969 and this album was released the following year.The guitar playing is excellent and very blues influenced.This album is released on the fallout label who have managed to unearth a collection of late 60s bands with outstanding guitar players in the acid rock tradition.The sound quality is good and there is an informative write up of the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars jazz tinged psychedelic rock, 1 Aug 2007
This review is from: Welcome (Audio CD)
This is another excellent release on the fall out label of a band who's 1970 release sank without setting the world on fire.The band hailed from boston and the music is typical of american late 60's rock.Organ and searing guitar dominate this melodic music.The sound quality is good and there are liner notes on the band.An enjoyable listen and recommended.
