'A Stunningly Good And Diverse Collection',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ah Feel Like Ahcid: 24 American Psychedelic Artefacts From The EMI Vaults (Audio CD)
'Ah Feel Like Ahcid' is quite simply one of the best compilation albums I have ever heard, its as simple as that. There is something for every kind of psychadelic taste on this album and the running order means that there is a change of style, sound and direction around every corner, all of which add to the listening experience.
To add to the fun, the album comes with a very interesting (and surprisingly detailed considering the space) booklet. Compiler John Reed's notes making for a great read as much as his intelligent selections have made for a great listen.
This album has rarities, classic bands and little known recordings in equal measure and there are many gems to discover. Personal favourites are the soft centered but dreamy psych of Food's 'Forever Is A Dream', The Human Beinz's instrumental 'April 15th' and the more guitar acid-rock of SRC's 'Up All Night' but, so good is this compilation, that many others are likely to join the list with time. Like EMI's other recent compilation 'Insane Times', this album is a winner from start to (bizarre Beefheart! HA HA!) finish.
YOU NEED THIS!
