Psychedelia classics in wonderful packing,
This review is from: Shapes & Sounds...Orange And Red Beams From The BBC Archives (Audio CD)
An excellent choice of BBC recordings from a high quality league of psychedelic groups that delivered original material deserving more recognition. The sleeve is packed with press cuttings, discographies and biographies of all groups featured. The album starts off with Kaleidoscope represented with 2 tracks that were omitted from their BBC compilation Please listen to the pictures (CD or 2-LP). These are the single A side Jenny Artichoke, but of course in a different live version, and a fantastic early live version of Music, that later was released in a studio version on Faintly blowing. Other artists featured are Tomorrow with Keith West, The
Spectrum, The Montanas, Timebox and Gentle Influence. I bought records by most of those "obscure" artists way back then, and the music has mostly stood the test of time.
