THE UNDERGROUND – Psychedelic Visions [1967. Garage/Psych]



”Here’s a classic ’67 US exploitation garage-psych album that will blow your mind! Get ready for some acid-drenched, fuzzed-out renditions of Count Five’s ”Psychotic Reaction” The Blues Magoos’ ‘(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet’, The Isley Brothers’ ‘Shout’, John D. Loudermilk’s ‘Tobacco Road’ and Bobby Bland’s ‘Turn Of Your Love Light’, plus five original tracks. ‘Psychedelic Visions’ is an essential title for anyone who enjoys the far-out exploito LP’s by a.o. T. Swift & Electric Bag, The Deep and Firebirds, or Germans à la Hell Preachers Inc. and Bokaj Retsiem!”

”Rare, sought after exploitation album from 1967 showcasing the garage-turns-to-psychedelia sound of the era. Fuzz and acid, no need for flowers – but bring them along if you feel like it!”

Interesting garage slab by mystery band with killer versions of Count Five’s ”Psychotic Reaction”, classicTobacco Road” and five instrumental tunes of which ”Psychotic Vibrations” should be a cover of “Susie Q”, “Psychedelic Visions” version of traditional “Greensleeves” and “The Warper” a rendition of a blues classic “St James Infirmary”. Vinyl rip, Dig!!!
