Van Morrison

Van Morrison – Astral Weeks

Classic Van Morrison almost all ad lib playing with wonderful acoustic guitar and double bass. Great moody album!

Strawberry Alarm Clock

Strawberry Alarm Clock – Incense and Peppermints

It was quite fitting that I bought this album on CD from a gas station on I5 driving from LA to St Luis Obispo Theres a story here as I wrote a song called ‘El Camino Real’ or ‘The a Kings Highway’ Anyway this a great psychedelic pop/rock album laced with great tunes and harmonies…

The Electric Prunes

The Electric Prunes – Release of an Oath

What can I say about this pioneering album…. quite a spooky trip this with some great sparse production. Its not the Electric Prunes you instantly think of along the lines of ‘I had too much to dream last night’ which is kinda garage psychedelic rock. This is finely tuned and orchestrated by David Axelrod with…

The Moody Blues

The Moody Blues – To our Childrens Childrens Children

I love all the Moody Blues albums but I think this is their finest hour….. written around the time of the Apollo moon landing the album crashes into life with the sound of the rocket taking off then takes you on a trip through delicate and beautiful songs. Sublime harmonies and ethereal ¬†English whimsy !…

Pink Floyd – Piper at the Gates of Dawn

What can you say about this iconic psychedelic arty debut album from Syd and the guys . By far my favourite Floyd album for its edginess and ad lib style. From the jangle pop rock of Lucifer Sam to the prog instrumental Interstellar overdrive this finds the band at its most creative artistically and lyrically.…

Captain Beefheart - Safe as Milk

Captain Beefheart – Safe as Milk

The perfect intro to the original bluesy Beefheart you can just see the cracks appearing in what would become his later wayward style. Here it all seems too straightforward and easy for him. Great news for the listener though!

13th Floor Elevators – 13th Floor Elevators

Psychedelic garage rock pioneer from 1965 (I wrote a song about Roky called ‘Unknown Legend’) this is the first album by the band and again has that sparse production and simplicity that makes it a great rock record along with their famous hit ‘You’re gonna miss me’ which was a top 100 Billboard hit in…
