The first H.P. Lovecraft album is one of the great unrecognized recordings of the era. It has almost as much imagination and variety as "Rubber Soul" or "Revolver". It was well recorded and well performed. Unfortunately the remastering from REVOLA does not do it justice. It is muddy and unbalanced. The high end is shrill and some parts almost disapear. H.P. LovecraftII is not as strong.

This Rev-Ola, H.P Lovecraft "Dreams in the witch house" The Complete Philips Recordings album
is a fascinating look into what seems a totally different world, but I could definitely conjure a
very potent "mind-picture" from listening to this album!

Standout tracks for me are: "The white Ship", (Both versions) the rather bizarre
version "Lets Get Together", "Electrollentando". "Mobius Trip", "High Flying Bird",
"keeper Of The Keys".(Both versions)

A previous reviewer expresses some dissapointment about this music being
"Dated", but nearly all the music from this period, and that includes other
countries, has a dated quality, but some albums/music do transcend this, and
I would say that I was "Blown Away" by the emotional quality, and haunting/enigmatic
nature of the sounds on offer here!

So, I would say this is one of the best compilation albums of original era psychedelia
I've yet encountered, GIVE IT A GO!

Except for the disc's last two tracks, a couple of single edits, for the tunes "White Ship" and "Keeper Of The Keys", this import release features the same exact track listing as the domestic pressing H. P. Lovecraft - 'H. P. Lovecraft / II' 2-lp's-on-one-CD (see my review). Thought that Rev-Ola used a nice cover here.

This album begins with "Wayfaring Stranger", a chugging Jefferson Airplane-like pop/tune with lyrics about travelling to a faraway place. Even the demanding/war-like approach to the lyrics sounds like something classic Jefferson Airplane would have done. I still love it a lot. "Let's Get Together" has a wonderful flute solo, keyboards, bass work and upbeat rhythm section before the realization sets in- oh, this is a cover of the Youngbloods songs! While nothing can ever surpass the Youngbloods flawless version, this is a pretty good cover song either way (even with the rushed-like chorus). Imagine early Jefferson Airplane covering this song- that's the best way to describe it.

"I've Been Wrong Before" could pass for another Jefferson Airplane song (specifically "Today" from their Surrealistic Pillow album). Alright enough of these Jefferson Airplane comparisons! Anyway the vocals are amazingly impactful and sincere in this ballad- I love this song. "Drifter" is pretty awesome and rocks for its time. I love the lyrics "I've played basketball through the hoop of a barrel, I struggle to learn how to swim now, I used to think maybe I once was a baby, I only pretend I was him now, I'm a drifter, I'm a loner, I've seen every city and town now, I've passed by here, and I'll die here, some stranger will lower me down yeah". "That's the Bag I'm In" has hilarious lyrics, especially the first line "My toast is cold my orange juice is hot, I could stop over but I'd really rather not, same thing would happen again 'cuz that's the bag I'm in!" These guys are quite instrumentally diverse too.

"White Ship" reminds me of... yeah, *that* band! The marching drums, the somber tone, the memorable dreamy vocal melody with the keyboard work chugging along... this is great stuff.
