CD


4.50 10

Sitar-heavy psych from the late 60s to early 70s – each track a prime example of how sublimely Eastern string buzzes worked in the psychedelic era – and a straight-up excellent set of rare international singles! What's so great here is that it's a pretty diverse mix of styles – electric and acoustic psych-stepped rock, pop and folk. Some of sunny and some dark – some pop hook-filled, some tripped out – and all of it is hypnotic and worthy checking out! Includes "Eight Miles High" by The Folkswingers, "Many Times Jimbo" by Click, "Water Boy" by Shocking Blue, "Face In The Clouds" by Family, "Real Life Permanent Dream" by Tomorrow, "All Your Ambition" by Saffron, "Love" by The Virgin Sleep, "Spinning Wheel" by Blonde On Blonde, "Ask For Nothing' by Galliard and more. 28 tracks in all!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... CD
