5.0 out of 5 stars Tune in, turn on, drop out!, 5 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Ah Feel Like Ahcid: 24 American Psychedelic Artefacts From The EMI Vaults (Audio CD)
I feel compelled to respond to the first review of this excellent compilation if only to advise potential buyers that my copy of the C.D. plays absolutely fine on the first track by The Balloon Farm. (Interesting to note the Band derived their name from a throw away Bob Dylan quote.)

The excellent liner notes by John Reed draw comparison between The English Pyschedelic Scene and the U.S. equivalent. The biggest difference being that whereas in the U.K. The Scene centered largely around the Capital, and a few major record labels, by contrast the U.S. was much more diverse with Garage Bands flourishing in many different States under lots of differing regional labels.

This compilation provides ample evidence of the depth of that diversity. There are many rich pickings indeed, not the least being the following gems: The Human Beinz "April 15th" a 7 min guitar workout. Mad River's great "Wind Chimes", and The Common People's "Soon they`ll be Thunder" taken from the superb recently reissued Album "Of the People, For the People, By the People". Then we have other delights such as Gandalf, Food and Fargo all making this a very worthwhile addition to any Psyche Collection. Go ahead, Tune in, turn on and drop out.
