Not very far out, slightly psychedelic, though good,
This review is from: Psychedelia At Abbey Road: 1965-1969 (Audio CD)
As a whole, this will stay in my collection as listenable music, though, as an ever hopeful collector of truly lysergic, trippy, dreamy masterpieces (tracks like: Anthem - Ballroom / Program - Silver Apples / Music - Kaleidoscope / and The American Way of Love - The United States of America) I was slightly disappointed at the choice of so-called psychedelic tracks here. If this is due to my misunderstanding of the genre called 'Psychedelia' then I stand corrected, but the general notion stands, given what I have already said. Having got that off my chest, I love the Donovan tracks, the Eastern-sounding Maker, as well as Barricades by the Koobas, and oh yes, the Kites tune. Well there are others too - perhaps I should have given this a 4 star rating? On the other hand, I was disappointed that a better Barrettt track was not included - and there are plenty! Also, the version of 10,000 Words is not the trippiest I have heard, being second to the album version (Think Pink, by Twink), rather like the second-best version of 'Trip' by Kim Fowley usually evident on other compilations - worth a listen, but miles below the most far out version! For far out, try Timothy Leary, Twink, or the Trance Tripping CD.
