From the Acid Archives - "Legendary documentation of the 1965-66 Bay Area Acid Test scene from "14 hours of the actual trip" (recorded in a studio). Shows the other side of acid culture which is fun, unpredictable and avantgarde as opposed to the Leary camp's solemn religious / psychological approach. Lots of amazing mind games and word play with Kesey and Ken Babbs in good form, ad libbed poetry, fractured harmonica solos, tape loops and the Grateful Dead lurking in the background. Released in March 1966, just as the Pranksters were splitting for Mexico." Cover and disc are a beautiful M-! TOP COPY!!

MEGA RARE 1972 ORIGINAL UK PRIVATE PRESSED DOUBLE ALBUM OF AVANT GARDE PSYCH! THE GATEFOLD COVER IS VG+, NO SPLITS OR WRITING. THE CONDITION OF BOTH DISCS ARE A VERY CLEAN EX AND THEY PLAY GREAT! Distance Between Us is the unique album published under his own name but what a fabulous creative effort. Published in 1972, Distance Between Us is a seriously enthralling psychedelic-thundering epic symphony largely based on furiously moving key soloing parts, ritual drum patterns, all into pure improvised madness. An absolute masterpiece, singular, dense, astral, tripped-out mystical effort which almost admits no comparison in the world of progressive music. Pure genius and a pick of musical virtuosity.

ULTRA RARE private garage blues LP from the Los Angeles area reminds me of early Quicksilver Messenger Service, specifically the 1966 pre-Cipollina lineup as heard on those Groucho releases. "Smokestack Lightning", "Goin' To New York", "You Gotta Help Me", etc. Trebly guitars, wailing harmonica, etc. Band is pretty crude but the pressing is great and the cover=wow! This is one of the rarest 1960s California private LPs, I'd put it in league with Stack, Beat Of The Earth, Damon, etc. Rated at a high "5 disc rating" in Hans Pokora's "4001 Record Collector Dreams" book! THIS IS A NEAR PERFECT STILL SEALED ORIGINAL PRESSING!! Good luck ever in finding another SEALED original!!
CRAIG, MIKE ~ DAUGHTER OF THE MOON ~ lp (melanie - 1973)
Extremely RARE Arizona Private Press rural acid folk that is hardly ever offered. Pokora Favorite.
The album cover was to be controversial and odd so artist/model Maggie Blackburn was commissioned, her cover turned out to be odder than was hoped for. There was no time to change it so it went to press. Mike went to the record plant and took the stampers so no more of the albums could be made. The record plant had shipped out possibly 200 of these albums before mike was able to stop them.” … so there you have it. ONLY 200 or LESS copies pressed! Extremely Rare 1973 Private Pressing Acid Folk Psych out of Arizona. Great LP with desperate vocals, Electric Acid Guitar weaving in and out of some tracks, Tablas, female backing vocals, occasional flute. Solid cover with only very mild general wear. Perfect labels. Vinyl is clean, solid copy for sure, and not likely to be popping up for sale again any time soon. CONDITION: COVER:EX VINYL:EX Beyond hard to find and highly recommended to lovers of acid folk and psychedelic folk privates!

In the dark depths of the Bosstown Sound backlash it would be hard to champion your scene amidst charges of 'plastic' and 'lame'. This was the time we threw Eden's Children in their face. Their album was released just after the initial BOSSTOWN -HYPE so they wern't lumped in with the other groups as much. (i.e.The Apple Pie Motherhood Band, The Bagatelle, The Beacon Street Union, Bo Grumpus, Eagle, Earth Opera, Eden's Children, Sure Looks Real, The Ill Wind, Jolliver Arkansaw, Orpheus, Phluph, Puff, and Ultimate Spinach). When they were compared to the others, they held their own....Eden's Children were on ABC records produced by heavy hitter Bob Theile and they even sounded a little different than the rest. They were more gritty. Still psychedelic they were closer to Hendrix than the Grateful Dead. The Children were a three piece group. All were very good players. Larry Kiley the bass player and Jimmy Sturman the drummer were a constantly interesting rhythm. The main songwriter/singer was Richard 'Sham' Schamach who was also a great 'fuzzed-up' guitar player. While the first album is much loved by all those who love it, their 2nd (and last!) is as well a collectible of the same sort, delivering right from the start in the title track that sounds like a continuance of their first. From there, we run into more gritty kickers with cool sound appeal as well as some primed tunes that cool-out, and get better with each successive spin ...still it is the hot-wired sound that make it, esp for those who love Eden's Children's when they're cookin' with nasty fuzz-tone shooting through the pro-garage sound. This is a near perfect ORIGINAL STILL SEALED copy, just a tiny drill hole, like most copies I've seen.

The obscure and highly sought after FIELDS, an underground hardrock psych trio with loads of cool fuzz guitar injected into the original tunes. Fields were a US psych-bluesrock trio consisting of Richard Fortunato (lead vocals and guitar), Patrick Burke (bass) and Steve Lagan (percussion). They existed for only about a year or so, released one single (Bide My Time), this eponymously titled album, and they collapsed after touring together, yeah, vanished witout a trace. The LP itself comes in a somewhat op-art psych-pop designed gatefold sleeve, with the cover mixings of purple, green and mustard-yellow, with a sepia band photograph forming the centrepiece. Musically, this is a blending of styles, but it works quite nicely. An obvious influence is the hard blues-rock of the likes of Cream, but there’s also acid-rock and psychedelia --and the album as a whole is very raw. This is a beautiful, original, still sealed copy with a tiny drill hole in the upper left corner and a bit of the shrink torn at the upper right corner.

Mega Rare Private second album released by loner/downer folk legend Dave Bixby. The album was sold exclusively at concerts & services in Michigan and Ohio. Most of the material was written around the same time as Ode to Quetzalcoatl. According to Bixby: “I think this second album had more people in it, so you're gonna get a little more aliveness because there's more than just David Bixby in there.” Bixby is joined by Brian MacInness on guitar, Sandy Johnson on vocals and Don DeGraaf on bass and production duties. Don was in fact leader of the, in the end, religious destructive cult known as “The Group”, of which Bixby and Brian were part of. This is all likely why this album is even harder to find than his first, it was not only a private pressing but strictly a cult album, which was sold at services and concerts. When those responsible for the reissues were looking for source copies of the albums (no master tapes exist) they could only track down 2 copies of Second Coming. That just shows how rare it is... Condition: Cover M- still in the shrink wrap! Disc is also M-! TOP COPY!
