The long awaited third volume of this highly regarded series continues to explore the wonderful world of obscure and unknown 45s released in Europe during the late 60s and early 70s.
You won't find a more eclectic compilation anywhere! Psych-pop, weird psychedelia, folk-pop, popsyke, sunshine-pop, soft-pop, toytown pop, ...name it as you want but they're simply just cool songs that deserve to be rediscovered.
This time the focus is on UK sounding psych-pop but there are still weird, obscure and fuzzy sounds, featuring bands from UK, Spain, Belgium, France, Paraguay, Holland, USA...
Highlights are the Barret-esque sounds of Fuzzy Phases, the Beach Boys "Smile" era pastiche of Marshall & Newell, avant-garde acid psych by Popera Cosmic, Beatlesque pop-psych by Jigsaw and Uruguayan duo Iodi, devastating toytown pop-sike by Mathusalem and Kenny Everett, dreamy folk-pop by Justice, Peacock and Timon, insane bubblegum-fuzz by The Others...and more.
Remastered sound, nice full colour 12 pages booklet featuring detailed liner notes about each band and pictures.
