Collection features 4 CDs of the greatest artists, the biggest songs and the harder-to-find hits all uniquely themed to a genre… One could argue whether every track collected in this four-disc set is actually psychedelic or not, however one defines the term when it is applied to pop music, but everything here originally appeared at the close of the 1960s or the start of the 1970s, a time when pop music, and rock in particular, was expanding and playing with the notion of time, space, drugs, and a planet-wide pop culture…

Awesome Mexican jazz-rock. Take, if you will, the brass-infused sound that characterized bands like Chicago and Blood, Sweat & Tears. Then, remove defining elements like Terry Kath and classical pretenses…
2016 three CD collection. As that noted hipster Plato once observed, when the mode of the music changes, the walls of the city shake. And there was certainly a whole lotta shakin' goin' on in 1967. A distended Summer of Love saw psychedelic pop emerging from the underground clubs to infiltrate the home-grown music scene mainstream, with the vast majority following in the footsteps of perennial market leaders The Beatles in surrendering to the new genre. As the year progressed, it seemed that more or less every element of the British pop world had been swept up in the blissed-out UFOria. Beat boom survivors, R&B stalwarts, sharp-suited mods, Swinging London soul revues, earnest acoustic folkies, Denmark Street hustlers, traditional pop acts… all abandoned or refined their previous identities to make music that reflected the ubiquitous influence of psychedelia in it's myriad paisley-patterned guises. Across four hours and eighty tracks, the all-singing, not-much-dancing Let's Go Down And Blow Our Minds anticipates the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love to chronicle a tumultuous twelve-month period of music-making within the British Isles.
The Best Mindblowing Spaced-Out Jazz Grooves.
"(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" is extraordinary and magical; like the Box Tops' "The Letter," it's one of those little two-minute blasts of pop which brought the transistor radio to life and which is the proverbial breath of fresh air on oldies radio stations daring enough to play psychedelia. Psychedelic Lollipop is the real thing; the Blues Magoos on the LP cover look like Captain Kirk abandoned them on some forgotten Star Trek planet, and the music inside the sleeve is authentic acid rock. They stretch John D. Loudermilk's "Tobacco Road" across four-and-a-half Seeds-style minutes, obliterating the Nashville Teens' 1964 hit recording in the process.
It's been over 30 years since Rare Earth's psychedelic sounds painted the 1960's into a melange of change and understanding, but the band returns again to the stage at the much-anticipated four-day rock-fest in Tennessee, where some of the most influential bands in rock and roll history set the stage ablaze for the comeback of the century!
