The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - On the Edge of Your Mind



There's never been a proper WCPAEB compilation over the years, apart from Transparent Day which was released in the 1980s and only comprised of songs from their first 2 Reprise albums. So, I've gathered together my favourite tracks from all 6 albums they released between 1966-1970, including the Markley - A Group album which is considered the final WCPAEB album. Bob Markley decided at the last moment to rename the band to just his surname for this release. Considering he played as much a part of this album as their previous albums, for the sake of this compilation I've reverted the name of the band to what it should be.
