The Mothers of Invention – Brown Shoes Don’t Make It

What starts off as pretty straight boogie quickly descends into Zappa’s snide, musical terrorism that encompass everything from parody to genuine freak musique. The changes are rapid and you’re never in one place for very long. This is off of the band’s 2nd album, 1967’s ‘Absolutely Free’.


The Human Beinz – Nobody But Me

Cool Garage Rock from the Ohio acts debut album from 1967; also titled ‘Nobody But Me’. Rez heads will know this from ‘Meet The Residents’, where the phenomenal Pop combo plundered it for the start of ‘N-ER-GEE (Crisis Blues)’. Dig.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – Moody Liz

The sister/companion piece to the bands ‘Kandy Korn’, ‘Moody Liz’ takes the listener from tumbling psych, country Blues, through a slow, steady musical incantation, and onto a finale that is just pure loveliness. Don and his (truly) Magic Band at their best; circa 1967.

John Fahey – A Raga Called Pat Part One

Some low tech field recordings give way to some haunting bluegrass that quickly evolves into a kind of Hillbilly raga dervish. Amazing stuff from his brilliant 1967 album ‘Days Have Gone By’.

Love – You Set The Scene

Hippie-tastic stuff from the LA band’s magnum opus, 1967’s ‘Forever Changes’. This track lives up the album title as it shifts and morphs throughout. Anorak’s may know that a section of this track was sampled by Die Trip Computer Die for their track ‘America’s Burning’.

Pink Floyd – See Emily Play

Barrett-era Pink Floyd (their initial incarnation) with a Psychedelic pop gem from 1967. This sort of sound was quintessentially British, short lived, and very much of its time. However, it was truly wonderful.

The Bonniwell Music Machine – Bottom Of The Soul

From the act previously known as just simply the Music Machine, the band give us some great melodic Garage from 1967. Groovy.

Love – The Red Telephone

Forever Changes had a dark, melancholic edge to it; suggesting that Love had become a little soured by the Psychedelic dream. The Red Telephone is a perfect example of the ‘tone’ the band had at this point.
So many lovely string arrangements on this album; and they are there in this song.
1967. Old.

Pink Floyd – Interstellar Overdrive

Murky psychedelia from the original Pink Floyd line up, and from their 1967 debut album ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’. This set the tone for so much of the Krautrock that came a few years later, and traces of this track can be heard in music by bands like Faust, Amon Düül II, Tangerine Dream, Ashra Tempel et al; and it’s influence can be found on Avant-Rock from places other than Germany up until this day. It’s easy to forget about the impact that their early material had with all of the Prog and Neo Prog that followed, but a glance back to their very early days should rectify that.

Pauline Oliveros – Bye Bye Butterfly
