Soft Sounds For Gentle People Vol 5

CD (Item 490220) Pet Records, Late 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 10

Far out harmonies and psyche pop from the mid-to-late 60s – and another groovy batch of obscurites from the Cali scene and beyond in the Soft Sounds For Gentle People series from Pet Records! The series has only gotten deeper and groovier since the first one came out – many singles from groups that were recording for the major labels at the time, but the majority of whom are fresh discoveries to us – and if labels like Columbia, Warner Bros and Capital provided the opportunity for richer sounds and production, it's used to shoot the grooves even further out, without comprising the catchy grooves and sweetly soaring male and female harmonies. Possibly the best entry yet! 21 tracks in all: Titles include "Take A Bus" by Stix & Stonz, "Nothing Sacred" by The Johnnys, "Look At The Sun" by Mouse, "Hello" by Things To Come, "Kill The Cobra" by Bentley Road, "It's A Groovy World" by The Lollipop Fantasy, "Looking Down" by 1st Century, "Wispy Paisley Skies" by Fraternity Of Man and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Numera/World Psychedelia, 1974. New Copy
One of the mellower records from the Turkish scene of the 70s – a laidback and almost folk funk sort of record – done with some great gravelly vocals and really wonderful acoustic guitar! The style is almost similar to some of the hippest French titles from the same time – the ... CD
Nostradamos
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1972. New Copy
The only record from Greek psychedelic folk combo Nostradamos – with a gleefully diverse sound augmented by impeccable female/male lead and harmony vocals – and tunes that run the gamut from delicate, classical bits to lumbering proggy heaviness! The vocals really keep the disparate ... CD
Polydor (Mexico), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
The obscure second album from Emiliano Zapata – one of the coolest groups on the Mexican scene of the early 70s! Like the first, this one's got a quality that's right up there with the best South American psych of the time – fuzzy guitars mixed with funky rhythms, and some occasionally ... CD
