THE FREAK SCENE - PSYCHEDELIC PSOUL (COLUMBIA 1967) Japan mastering cardboard sleeve



A great little record of hippie freakout almost like some of the weird bits you'd find in the ESP catalog from some of the sub-Fugs rock groups of the time! The songs have a very trippy nature, mixed with a bit of politics ("draft beer, not students") and the album's produced with lots of cool effects that make the guitars go wild, the voices sound spooky, and which introduce some sound snippets and a small bit of electronics! The whole thing's definitely a "Freak Scene" overall the kind of tripped out album that somehow sounds even better today than it did a few decades back. Titles include "The Subway Ride Thru Inner Space", "My Rainbow Life", "The Center Of My Soul", "Mind Bender", "Grok", "Watered Down Soul", "A Million Grains Of Sand"....
The album is virtually a second Deep LP and almost identical in style...[net]

From the distance of more than 40 years, difficult to tell how serious this was intended to be. In turns, profound and silly. But mostly silly. Great blog - and thanks for posting this wonderful period piece.
