By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Feb. 2014
This is a really wonderful release of five classic Psychedelic albums from the 60's.

Unlike other boxed sets which concentrate on a single group or artist this set collects five different ones together.

Now this is a really terrific idea to bring the five together in one place.
If like a lot of people your original vinyl of the LPs has had its day then this is for you.
If you have heard of the groups before bu have not risked a ful' price punt then you really cannot go wrong with this cheap as chips collection.
Heck at just under £3 for each that's less than I paid for the albums back when they were LPS.

The Cds have tiny replicas of the original LP covers great for storage but not so cool to carry under your arms to impress your friends and the world at large back in the day!

The Albums are
Tomorrow's "Tomorrow" (1968),
July's "July" (1968),
The Gods' "Genesis" (1968),
Idle Race's "Birthday Party" (1968) and
The Yardbirds' "Little Games" (1967).

Tomorrow and July are both psychedelic classics, with a more ramshackle feel than some of the bigger albums of the period. This is especially true of the July album, which often sounds like there are only about two instruments being played at one time, but is none the worse for that.

Tomorrow's track 'Revolution', not the Beatles' song, could easily have graced that band - on the Lennon side of psych - but their cover of 'Strawberry Fields Forever' sounds like it was recorded with much less extravagant production and with far less time, which is not really surprising at all.

Jeff Lynn's band The Idle Race favoured a whimsical music hall feel throughout their Birthday album, which makes Tomorrow's songs about dwarfs and white bicycles sound almost Kafkaesque in comparison. The sixties seems like a very long time ago indeed.

The Yardbirds had started playing some future Led Zep tracks live by the time they were releasing the Little Games album, and though It has some of Jimmy Page's power, the lyrics and many of the songs sound like they're about to give up - which they were. The excellent single of that period 'Think About It' is also missing, as often was the case.

The Gods don't quite live up to their name - who could? - and without the superstar leaders of the two lesser CDs included here, it is possibly the least interesting, and also the least psychedelic. But it does pack a punch, an organ-powered punch, and if you like the way music was being led post-psychedelia by the likes of Procol Harum it could well be of interest. And they do a mean 'Hey Bulldog'.

So, you WILL like July and Tomorrow, and depending upon your particular disposition, you may or may not like the other three whilst acknowledging an overall very agreeable psychedelic experience.

What you see is what you get, five classic but often ignored British psych albums. No extra tracks, no liner notes, just cardboard miniLP sleeves in a slipcase. A perfect introduction for those that wish to dig deeper into the genre than the obvious names, at a bargain bin price. What more could one ask for?
Ok, some people might want to buy more luxurious expanded editions, but for those who seek the original albums and nothing else this value pack is well recommended.
For reviews of the music please check the separate albums, plenty reviews are available.

Firstly I have to say that this is a bargain, 5 albums in cardboard sleeves that are miniture versions of the original sleeves even listing the music as side one and side two.. So why only 3 stars? because only 3 of the albums could be classed as Psychedelia, the fantastic album by Tomorrow (buy the release with the bonus tracks) and the albums by July.. over rated but psych and the vastly under rated Idle Race. Skeleton and the roundabout is a great track, why did it never chart as a single??
So thats the good which leaves us with The Gods and The Yardbirds. The Gods album is ok ish but linking the tracks with irritating noises does not make is Psych, you will play it once then leave it in its cardboard sleeve as for the Yardbirds album, well Jimmy Page does play on it and it has a couple of decent tracks but thats all, no wonder then that it did not merit a UK release till the early 90s.
So three decent albums equals three stars..

The five albums here are very good,but I would say that the Yardbirds one isn't a completely psychedelic effort,but is still very good,especially as it has The nucleus(apart from Plant)of what would become Led Zeppelin.The Gods I found was good in parts,especially enjoyed the second half of the cd. The idle Race is very good,but i will need a few more listens to "get into it".The stand out cd is Tomorrow a true Psychedelic classic.The July cd is excellent also,which apart from the jaunty "jolly Mary" can be a bit on the dark side as regards subject matter.

The cd arrived promptly and the supplier is recommended.
