Thinking about the psychedelic music included...

There's maybe a tendency to favor records with some kind of edge. There's no real flower power. The Sonics and not the Seeds, etc.

'Sister Ray' is, and always has been, an absolute waste of time.

Or a tendency to favor experimentalism in say Song Cycle and the United States of America over other psychedelic albums

timellison, Wednesday, 23 August 2017 19:06 (three months ago) Permalink

(Academic experimentalism, more accurately)

timellison, Wednesday, 23 August 2017 19:11 (three months ago) Permalink

Not that I don't like both of those albums, I do. But I also like the Strawberry Alarm Clock.

(I actually prefer the Strawberry Alarm Clock, but I am willing to chalk that up to personal preference. What I'm unwilling to chalk up to personal preference is the idea that Van Dyke Parks or the U.S.A. are in any really obvious way better.)

I hadn't listened to SF Sorrow in forever and I did a while back that record is such a psych classic, bonkers like Piper at the Gates of Dawn and (may I say IMHO) better songs

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Wednesday, 23 August 2017 20:01 (three months ago) Permalink

oh man 60s everly brothers records are so solid. seriously. i've never actually heard a bad record by them. for 60s: It's Everly Time, A Date With The Everly Brothers, The Everly Brothers Sing, Roots.

some of the 60s records are themed . i don't listen to those as much. but they're cool. like the country hits one. and rock 'n' soul. where they do popular songs of the 50s and 60s.

i would say go with Its Everly Time and A Date With...

they can be so much fun and then they break your heart. so beautiful. and the production is always amazing.

i have a beautiful mono copy of Gone Gone Gone here at the store and I just put it on. I like that record a lot. "Lonely Island" is so beautiful. it's so worth getting clean original mono copies of their early records.

i've been playing Phil's Mystic Line record a LOT lately. it fits my mood. but that's 70s.

This 60s list is good. But Mississippi John Hurt "Today" is a huge omission. He is a giant of music that has yet to be discovered by a larger audience.
