BRITISH PSYCHEDLIA

VA - Get Smarter, 60's Instrumental Grooves from Around the Globe!!!! [2002]

Where do I start. If you get a chance just listen to these tunes. Some psychedelic and most very jazzy. The back cover of this CD states - There really isn't a better way to describe this super cool mix. Here are 18 superb specimens from the ever-so-slightly weird and wild side of the sixties: freaky go-go Phased Hammond wig-outs, groovy party rave ups, trippy Psych wierdness and laid back lounge influenced funky pop jazz... All worth a listen. (Amazon)

  1. Hey BB, one of the tracks off this is also in my submitted comp I sent you the other day for the next compilation series, lol. And, another track almost made it, but held for the next one. I'll hold it a bit longer so others don't think I'm lifting from your dl's, lol. It's all good :)

    Anyway, "Get Smarter" is good, and I also recommend.

      Sometimes the blues can lift your spirit especially when we realise it ain't that bad always.
      This is a really great compilation.
      Cheers.

    1. Hi mrRadio,
      You have to expect the unexpected from time to time.There is a bunch of nice tracks you highlight.
      I really like the Bad Boys - Black Olives bluesy feel and I Was a Persian Fly by Jerry Allen.
