Psychedelic Obscurities


This is just a collection (made about 3 years ago) of some of my favourite psychedelic songs from the years 1966 to 1971. Bands that should have been heard by much wider audiences. There may be the odd familiar name, such as Alice Cooper (yes, his first release was a psychedelic masterpiece!), or The Pretty Things (under the guise of The Electric Banana). But I hope you enjoy these songs which have given me much enjoyment over the years. All songs have the album of origin in the tags.
