Dot/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1968. New Copy ... $4.99
One of the best American psyche albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". CD

FlaviolaFlaviola E O Bando Do Sol ... CD
Solar/World Psychedelia, 1974. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A gem of a record from the same Pernambuco early 70s scene that gave us Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Alceu Valenca! This obscure little set has lots of the earthier tones that showed up in work by the above artists – a style that mixes folksy touches with bits of psychedelia – kind of a north east answer to the growing sound from the Minas Geraes generation around Milton Nascimento. Many of the tunes here are fairly mellow – building slowly with an honest, earthy integrity – and mostly relying on acoustic instrumentation to carry the gentle poetry of the lyrics, but still coming across with enough of an edge to appeal to fans of stronger South American rock. Titles include "Canto Funebre", "O Tempo", "Noite", "Desespero", "Cancao De Outono", "Do Amigo", and "Romance Da Lua Lua". CD

Kim Jung MiKim Jung Mi ... CD
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1974. New Copy ... $4.99
Groovy folk funk from mid 70s Korea – mad, pulpy tunes from Kim Jung Mi – possibly her best work ever! This wonderful self-titled set is a pretty deep left turn from her other material that we've been lucky enough to get our hands on – this one really goes deeper into the trippier elements that pepper her work – with deep, thumping bass lines, groovy organ washes and some strings! Groovy, groovy work and more than lives up to the World Psychedelia tag! 11 tracks in all. (Apologies for our lack of song titles – all notes are Korean!) CD

Kim Jung MiWind ... CD
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1973. New Copy ... $4.99
A tasty, trippy little set of Korean psychedelic folk from Kim Jung Mi – another wonderful little batch from a great run of work in the early-to-mid 70s! Wind has a breezier, more meditative approach on some numbers – with some strings and a fair stripped down sound supporting her sweetly soaring vocals – but it's also got the tripper electric guitar groove that we love from her other records of the period! 10 groovy tracks in all. (Sorry, we can't provide the song titles – notes are in Korean!) CD

MopsPsychedelic Sounds in Japan ... CD
Victor/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1968/1973. New Copy ... $4.99
A buzzing, hard-hitting batch of pychedelic rock from Japan's The Mops – featuring some groovy, echoey tunes penned by the group and sung in their native language – plus a nice choice of passionate covers! The sound is a little bit like Love in their early rawness – and the Mops obviously have a great feel for psychedelia at its fuzziest and most tuneful. Great stuff! Tracks include "Asamade Matenai", "San Francisco Nights", "I Am Just A Mops", "The Letter", "Blind Bird", "Somebody To Love", "White Rabbit", "Light My Fire", "Kienai Omoi" and more – plus 7 bonus tracks from late 60s & early 70s – including "Omae No Subete O", "Atsuki Narenai", "Sleep, Jesus", "No Umbrellas" plus a couple alternate versions.

NostradamosNostradamos ... CD
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
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 elements together – from with the female vocals given the most space – and backing that has guitar, bass, drum and organ at the center of loads of adventurous instrumentation blending Greek folk with the psych sounds of the US and UK! Bits of harp, violin, and flute and French horn (?) find their way into the mix. Groovy stuff that veers all over the place in the best way! CD

San Ul Lim3 ... CD
World Psychedelia (Korea), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $3.99
Super fuzzed out, trippy 70s psych rock from Korea's San Ul Lim – an album recorded by the Seoul rockers in the power trio format of guitar, bass and drums – but with such a fuzzy, dense tone that it's hard to fathom how on Earth they got the sound! The opening track starts in wonderfully eye-opening fashion with the buzzing guitar sound and raspy vocals – but the follow up tracks have a softer vocal tone and more of a spacey effect – kind of evocative of "Sister Ray" in the relentless buzz sounds, but with a more lilting overall vibe! Includes notes in English, but the titles are Korean – 5 tracks in all, including a mammoth 18 minute closer! (Apologies for the lack of track titles – the booklet includes an English language essay, but not a translation for the song titles!) CD

✨✧ Aphrodite's ChildIt's Five O'Clock ... CD
Mercury/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliantly baroque psych from Aphrodite's Child – a stone classic cut while the group was in exile in Paris – heavy on drums, and with soaring keyboards that really work wonders with the vocals! Given that the group features a young Vangelis and Demis Roussos, there's plenty of raw power here – and the energy of the record is quite different than later work by either artist – very bold, and political too – with hardly any signs of their Greek roots, yet a sense of myth and majesty that are undeniable. There's surprising hooks to the tunes at times – and titles include "It's Five O'Clock", "Wake Up", "Annabela. "Let Me Love, Let Me Live", "Funky Mary", "Good Time So Fine", and "Marie Jolie". CD

✨✧ Growing ConcernGrowing Concern ... CD
Mainstream/World Psychedelia, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet batch of sometimes droning, sometimes surprisingly melodic psychedelia from Growing Concern – one of the series of rare psych rock efforts release by the adventurous Mainstream label in the late 60s! Growing Concern took a more vocal approach to the sound than many of their contemporaries – with some sweet female harmonies, some female and male lead vocal – a few more driving tunes, but overall a splitting the difference between freak folk and searing psyche! with the tracks "Hard Hard Year", "Edge Of Time", "A Boy I Once Knew", "All I Really Want", "Mister You're A Better Man Than I", "Other Side Of Life", "Sit Down I Think I Love You" and more.

✨✧ Takehisa KosugiCatch-Wave ... CD
World Psychedelia, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing avant work from Takehisa Kosugi – an artist most folks known as a founder of The Taj Mahal Travelers, but who here emerges as an electronic experimentalist – with a style to rival some of the best records of the Italian scene of the 70s! The album features improvised lines on violin – often at this really cyclical level that reduces them to long tones – mixed with voice, electronics, tape, and processing effects – all to create these amazing waves of sound that really live up to the album's title! The set features two long tracks – "Mano Dharma 74" and "Wave Code #e-1". CD

✨✧ 3 Hur-El3 Hur-El ... CD
Diskotur/World Psychedelia, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album by trippy Turkish trio 3 Hur El – a great blend of Eastern sounds and western styles – all coming together with a slightly progressive feel! The instrumentation often includes some heavy basslines underneath lighter lines on acoustic strings – a blend of folksy and modern that's topped by passionate vocals and often underscored by some great heavy percussion – all in a style that's a bit otherworldly, but oddly quite compelling! The set's definitely the kind that makes you say "I don't know what's going on here – but I sure like it anyway" – and titles include "Haram", "Ve Olum", "Ask Davasi", "Diday Dom", "Kara Yazi", "Olum Al Beni", "Pembelikler", and "Anadolu Dansi".

✨✧ 3 Hur-ElHurel Arsivi ... CD
Diskotur/World Psychedelia, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Trippy rock from the three Hurel brothers of Turkey – a fuzzed-up, freaked-out trio that comes off with some great psychedelic touches! The sound here is a great blending of modes – similar to some of the other Turkish rock from the time that merged electric guitar with folkloric inspirations – but the overall Hurel groove is much more strongly progressive, and sometimes slightly funky at times – due to a tight set of rhythms at the bottom. There's a heaviness here that almost hits Cream-like intensity for the power trio – save for the fact that the lyrics instantly mark the work as being of non-Anglo origins, as do the eastern shadings in the use of guitar and some of the percussion. Titles include "Kol Basti", "Hoptirinom", "Yara", "Doner Dunya", "Agit", "Aglaras Anam Aglar", "Kucuk Yaramaz", and "Canim Kurban". CD

CureTop ... LP
Sire, 1984. Very Good- ... $14.99
The Cure in a pretty unique period, and they have a pretty wild record to show for it! The Top spins in some interesting directions – from keyboard psychedelia, to boisterous pop, to some to trademark Cure mood pieces laced with Middle Eastern and other points global touches – there's no other Cure album like this one! It came just after the psych-steeped side project The Glove and while Robert Smith was also recording as a guitarist with Siouxsie And The Banshees, so there's a lot going on here stylistically – making it one of the weirder Cure albums, and definitely a keeper! Includes the forever great single "The Catapillar" plus "Shake Dog Shake", "Bird Man Girl", "Wailing Wall", "Piggy In The Mirror", "Bananfishbones", "The Top", "The Empty World" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Vintage Canadian pressing, with inner sleeve.)

Dug Dug'sLos Dug Dug's ... CD
RCA/Lion, 1971. New Copy ... $6.99
Psychedelia from early 70s Tijuana – the excellent Los Dug Dug's set from Dug Dug's – with English lyrics this time (the group had earlier made a go of it in NYC and didn't bust out as they'd hoped) and a great mix of spacious, echoey psychedelia and songs as great as post psych superstars of the time! The guitars bring both fuzzed out heat and sparer, more spindly sounds as the mood calls for from track-to-track. A must have set. Includes "Lost In My World", "Without Thinking", "Eclipse", "Sometimes", "Let's Make It Now", "World Of Love", "I Got The People", "It's Over", "Going Home" and "Who Would Look At Me". CD

✨✧ Moby GrapeGrape Jam ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
Moby Grape's self-conscious, but hardly less groovy late 60s excursion into loose, free form and largely instrumental psychedelia – the sweet and therefore appropriately titled Grape Jam! GJ is really a world away from their earlier rock regalia – with superstar special guests Al "How Does It Feel" Cooper and Mike Bloomfield brought in the flesh out the open-ended sounds. The sounds roll from walloping instrumental rock, to bluesier jams, to some driving nearly funky bits! Titles include "Never", "Boysenberry Jam", "Black Currant Jam", "Marmalade" and "The Lake". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo 360 Sound pressing, matrix ending 2B/1B.)

✨✧ MandalaSoul Crusade ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wild eyed organ soul from Mandala – a mix of raw and heavy R&B and fuzzed out garagey sounds from the Toronto combo – bringing their legendary approach to fiery performance to this lone rare studio set pretty well! It's not a soul set by a purist's definition, with raw funk, psychedelia and even rave up gospel revival feverishness in their sound – with very excitable lead vocals, thick layers of organ, some vibes and raw percussion. Typical of Atlantic Records of the era, a couple cuts have grander arrangements courtesy Arif Mardin, but this is quite an atypical album overall! Titles include "World Of Love", "One Short Year", "Every Single Day", "Mellow Carmello", "Palumbo", "Stop Cryin' On My Shoulder" and more. CD

✨✧ VariousBrazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas – Tropicalista Psychedelic Masterpieces 1967 to 1976 ... CD
Tropicalia In Furs/World Psychedelic Classics, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fuzzed out treasure trove of rare Brazilian psychedelia – wild stuff that's in many ways akin to the freewheeling sounds of the Tropicalia movement, but not necessarily taking on the cultural and political weight of that movement – and more about the boundless spirit of psychedelia and funk rock around the globe! The sounds are buzzing and indeed fuzzy throughout, ranging from raw and ramshackle guitar jams to more organ and drum driven funky, and it's really incredible stuff all around. We've been purveyors of hard to find Brazilian music for many many years, and this set – compiled by Joel Stones who also provides the richly detailed – brings to light some numbers we've never heard! 16 tracks in all: "Tema De Banana", "Era Uma Nota De" Loyce E Os Gnomes, "I Wanna Be Your Man" by Youngsters, "Ourico" by Serguei, "Lindo Sonho Delirante" by Fabio, "Cinturao De Fog" by Marisa Rossi, 'Som Imaginario De Jimmi Hendrix" by The Pops, "The Lantern" by Mac Rybell and more. CD version comes with a thick booklet of notes, in both English and Portuguese, and it's an enhanced CD – with the short documentary What Are Fuzz Bananas?. CD
