    I've always thought this was some trippy shit (just the title alone could have you freak out on a bummer) -

    Good one and their follow-up Agemo's Trip to Mother Earth is one of the greatest 60s Euro psych albums.

    Kind of tough to go w/ just one, Can Bel Air from Future Days or Echoes from Pink Floyd Meddle are pretty good head warpers too

    Any Axe enthusiasts? Derivative certainly, but interesting nonetheless.

    Mmmhhh!!!... this is sufficiently hard -rocking that if it weren't for the organ, I'd thought it was Lynyrd doing it (but they've gor a piano instead)

    That Allman Brothers Band version of 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be) is fantastic.

    Very rare. Only one album made but never released back in 1969 I think. I found a passable cover of Love's "A House is not a Motel"...

    ^ Axe was not the band's name. The acetate that was found simply said Axe Music, and wrong conclusions were drawn. The band was called Crystalline, and a full & proper reissue came out on Guerssen in 2012.

    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    Thanks for the info! I'll only became aware of them perhaps 10 or so years ago bopping around YouTube. One of those instances of finding something interesting while looking for something completely different.

    Does this count? It definitely has psychedelic elements, especially in the verses. Love the powerful way that chorus keeps coming back. My all-time favorite Aphrodite's Child track.

    I like "All The Seats Were Occupied" a track even through it is a recap of sorts.

    What about early Pearls Before Swine? I would go with virtually all the tracks on the two ESP releases – One Nation Underground and Translucent Carriages – but if I were to choose one it would be the title track of the second – Translucent Carriages (preceded by Trumpeter Landfrey, ‘one of the surviving trumpeters’ who sounded the bugle that started the Charge of the Light Brigade, believe it or not). Tom Rapp said he never tried hallucinogenics until later in his career, but oddly things sounded a lot straighter in his later albums.

    Also worth a listen is the work done by producer Norman Whitfield during his Psychedelic Soul period with the Temptation (try Take a Stroll Thru Your Mind) and the Undisputed Truth (try the 10-minute Ball of Confusion). Whitfield used every trick in the book (or mixing desk) in his recording during this period.

    Apart from the music that falls broadly into the category of acid rock, there is also the non-rock psychedelic music that shifts me into another zone entirely (as any good psychedelic should). To this end, try the 12-minute track Tazeta by Mahmoud Ahmed on the album Ethiopiques 10. Swirling organ (reminiscent of Rick Wright’s keyboard on Set the Controls…) and a smoking sax transport me to what I imagine is a late-sixties hashish den somewhere in north Africa. Magical.

    This one for me, sorry if it was already mentioned:

    Elephants Memory provided a lot of music for the movie Midnight Cowboy

    Not one but UK? 'Strawberry Fields Forever' or 'Flaming'. Preferably the mono mixes of both. I suppose I broadly tend to view UK psych as more 'produced' than its US counterpart...the mono 'Flaming' has phasing galore.

    US? 'Section 43' or 'Dark Star'. The exploratory side of US psych, crystallised by these.

    Some of their work of that period is as good as anyone else's psych material, and that track is an obvious example. 'Dandelion', 'We Love You' and 'She's A Rainbow' are all brilliant too.
