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!
"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.Read more ›
