Excellent predominantly British psyche compilation courtesy of Freakbeat magazine via Delerium Records, crystallizing the best of the underground scene at the beginning of the Nineteen-Nineties.
Sundial get things rolling with a heads' down, blistering instrumental jam.
The double album closes with a scary sonic 'Nightmare'.
In between all manner of echoes, ghosts and visions are conjured...
... jam and cucumber sandwiches, pots of tea and pints of Broon. Granny Takes a Trip, Club Dog. Glam. Pronk! Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Englishness, Americana & Kraut. Tony McPhee, Viv Stanshall, The Elastic Hair Band. Nostalgia, evolution: atavism. Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, Wheat Straw, Liquorice, Rips. Blues, purple hues; whiteys. Monty Python, Thomas Pynchon, Ted Hughes, The Prisoner. I am the Walrus & Hey Diddle Diddle. Fondant Fancies, flapjacks, felafels, fruit salad and fudge...
Something here for everybody.
