VA - Marshmallow Skies, 60's Pop Stars Flirt With Psychedelia [2017]


VA - Marshmallow Skies, 60's Pop Stars Flirt With Psychedelia [2017]

"Turn the time machine back fifty years for a groovy 80 minute trip: Marshmallow Skies is a turned-on look into established 60s pop artists’ forays and experiments with the psychedelic music scene. Listen as stars of sixties flirt with psych instrumentation coupled with lyrics about peace and love. It’ll blow your mind in 28 different pieces, man." 

Wonderful work once again from the Teensville label. I've long been on the look out for this kind of thing but there were quite a few new tracks to me. Novelty value aside, you're getting some quality late sixties music here and anyone who likes the poppier side of psychedelia or the Sunshine Pop sound should invest without hesitation. Look out for that Tommy Sands track - it's a classic! (Amazon)
