PSYCHEDELIC SITAR

VA - Electric Psychedelic Sitar Headswirlers Vol. 01 - 11 [1968 -2014]

Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream with this 11x CD,s box set gathering all 11 volumes in the classic Electric Psychedelic Sitar Headswirlers series. It's packed with Eastern-tinged rock, pop, and folk from the hippie heyday of the late '60s and early '70s, as well as the more recent psychedelic revival. Featuring over 200 tracks from acts from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as India, Germany, Sweden, Holland, Australia, and elsewhere, it comes complete with an 84-page full-color booklet offering background info, detailed biographies, full discographies, and rare photos, making it a truly essential trip back to psychedelia's incense-shrouded golden age.

Excellent overview of sitar-infused music from the late 60'searly 70s (plus a few well-chosen outliers from later time periods). The foremost genre presented is, of course, psych rock, but there is also a fascinating sampling of pop, folk, prog, jazz and oddball kitsch, all featuring that evocative instrument from the east, the sitar. There are definitely a few new songs to be found, but that's par for the course with a collection this immense, 204 tracks!  (Amazon)

  1. It had been a long time since I thought about Gualberto García. I met him in the early seventies as he spent time in Barcelona. Great musician and better person.
    Thanks
