Psychedelic Hit List - Hits & Misses - Volume 1

Amazon Customer "Richard Holman"
 
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
"Debut release from The Pink Floyd .... quintessential British psychedelia.  Not an obscure release y any means, but it really doesn't get much better than this."
Relics

"A mind-blowing overview of the first 4-5 years of Pink Floyd."
Revolver

"Although it's difficult to be definitive about such things, this might just be the best Beatles album of them all."
July

"A super fab slice of British psychedelia.  In the pre-internet age, this was ultra rare.  I spent 15 years trying to find a copy in any format.  Some tracks do sound dated but it's still fab."
Tomorrow

"Another slab of classic British psychedelia."
United States of America: Remastered

"Extremely experimental for its time.  This is an excellent document of fuzzed-out, freaked-out US psychedelia with some early electro experimentation thrown-in."
The Plastic Cloud

"Mind-blowing US psychedelia.  Never heard of them?  Don't worry.  You won't be disappointed.  This is brilliant stuff."
Trip Thru Hell
Trip Thru Hell
"Another US group you may or may not have heard of.  This is an excellent album.  These guys really do freak and fuzz-out at times."
Young Man's Song
Young Man's Song
"Fairly obscure West Coast .. these guys are brilliant.  This is missing "Hearts To Cry", which I really love.  Still, well worth the expense."
Ultimate Spinach
Ultimate Spinach
"Mellow US psychedelia ... some very trippy tracks."
Chariot Rising
Chariot Rising
"Another one that was probably ultra rare in the pre-internet age.  This has some fine examples of British psychedelia - e.g. "Fourpenny Bus Ride", "Madman Running Through The Fields"."
Crazy Diamond (3CD)
Crazy Diamond (3CD)
"Boxset with all three of Syd Barrett's solo albums.  Material from "The Madcap Laughs" is the best, in my opinion.  This is mellow, trippy stuff.  Barrett sounds somehow unhinged, on the edge."
Oar

"Track six alone is worth it.  This is a strange collection of songs, but worth the price. Once again, track six is super trippily good."
Alpha Centauri

"Mind-bending, time-stretching.  The early Tangerine Dream albums are so far-out you'll find it hard to believe.  Try "Zeit" also."
Surrealistic Pillow
Surrealistic Pillow
"It's difficult to know which Airplane LP to choose,  They're all pretty decent.  Just try the entire discography."

""Rain", the B-Side of "Paperback Writer" is one of The Beatles' best late 60s psychedelic tracks.  Superb guitar, vocals, bass, and drums.  Super trippy PLUS!"
Disraeli Gears

"Well, we couldn't forget "Cream" now, could we?"
Happy Trails

"West Coast?  This album by Quicksilver Messenger Service distills the sound of  California somewhere between 1966-1968.  A long, strange, super trip."
Insane Times: 25 British Psychedelic Artyfacts From The EMI Vaults
Insane Times: 25 British Psychedelic Artyfacts From The EMI Vaults
"This provides an extremely decent introduction to the late 60s British Underground.  Most enjoyable."
Love Is The Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-1970
Love Is The Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-1970
"If "Insane Times" was the perfect intro to the British Underground, this is a wonderful intro to the West Coast sounds of the mid-to-late 60s."
Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968

"Another killer compilation/boxset.  They really do serve as an excellent intro to all sorts of artists you'd never otherwise know about.  Worth the price, although perhaps more garage than psyche."
The Box of Trash
The Box of Trash
"Surely, the ultimate garage boxset.  Once again, more garage that psyche, but fab nonetheless."
Safe As Milk
Safe As Milk
"I admire the craziness of "Trout Mask Replica" but this is still, probably, my favourite Captain Beefheart album.  The original "Mirror Man" album is also a release worth purchasing."
Ah Feel Like Ahcid: 24 American Psychedelic Artefacts From The EMI Vaults
Ah Feel Like Ahcid: 24 American Psychedelic Artefacts From The EMI Vaults
"Another super compilation from EMI.  American nuggets ... once again, a great introduction to the US sounds of the late 60s."
Monterey Int'l Pop Festival

"There is also a 4 disc Monterey Pop Festival release,  Take your pick.  The festival that sort of "offically" began the  "Summer of Love"."
