    Gandalf ~ 1968 ~ Gandalfgenre: psych
    country: us
    audio: lossless (vinyl, flac tracks, scans)
    time: 31'47" size: 663 mb

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers :
    The above-mentioned album is excellent, but unfortunately originals are rare. The opening cut Golden Earrings (a 1948 hit for Bing Crosby!) is a beautiful relaxing number which culminates in a spacey climax. The album also contains sensitive covers of Tim Hardin compositions including Hang On To A Dream, a lovely version of Nature Boy and some strange instrumentation in Can You Travel In The Dark Alone, which is easily the best of Peter Sando's two originals on the album. There's also an ethereal and delicate cover of Harry Belatonte's 1957 recording Scarlet Ribbons. The album is a superb piece of laid back pop psychedelia with some progressive influences as one might expect given the year of its release. It was produced by Koppelman and Rubin, who are best known for their production work for The Lovin' Spoonful and The Sopwith Camel.

    Galliard ~ 1969 ~ Strange Pleasuregenre: psych, jazz, fusion
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 42'57" size: 270 mb

    Tapestry Of Delights :
    Galliard set out as an extremely eclectic band on Strange Pleasure. They juxtapose a woodwind/horn section slyly with rural compositions, creating a pastoral, even medieval atmosphere, starkly contrasting to nervously urban passages, although they borrow from Art Nova's Wrapped Her In Ribbons and give the credits to Geoff Brown. An interesting effort. New Dawn is even more schizophrenic. Hosts of wind parts over a tight rocking backdrop are estranged with naggingly dissonant sitar on the highlight Ask For Nothing, a strongly philosophical number. If you can stand some horns, these are worthwhile albums to own. ~ (Marcel Koopman / Vernon Joynson)

    Fuse ~ 1969 ~ Fusegenre: heavy, psych
    country: us
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 46'28" size: 457 mb

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers :
    From Rockford, Illinois. The lineage of this band is reported to stretchback via certain members (Rick Nielsen is frequently mentioned) to the Phaetons, via the Boyz, and possibly the Huns. They were also known as Grim Reaper but changed their name to Fuse upon signing to Epic. Peterson and Nielson were also in Sick Man Of Europe and Nazz. Bassist Tom Peterson and Rick Nielson went on to play with Cheap Trick. This album is pretty heavy.

    Funkadelic ~ 1970 ~ Funkadelicgenre: psych, soul, funk
    country: us
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:15'07" size: 457 mb

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers :
    Born in 1941 in North Carolina, George Clinton formed a doo-wop group, the Parliements, in the mid-fifties. After several line-up changes the Parliements had to wait until 1967 before they charted for the first time with the soul single (I Just Wanna) Testify. In 1968, Clinton formed Funkadelic and signed with Westbound, a new label created in Detroit by Armen Boladian (they also released several Teegarden and Van Winkle albums).
    Funkadelic (for "Funk" and "Psychedelic") tried, rather successfully, to merge soul, funk, rock and psych and will interest fans of Sly And The Family Stone and Hendrix (a major influence on their guitarist, Eddie Hazel). In a slightly different style, another black group, The Temptations, tried to do the same with their Psychedelic Shack period.

    Front Page Review ~ 1997 ~ Mystic Soldiersgenre: psych
    country: us
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 28'10" size: 170 mb
    misc.: unreleased '68 Lp

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Based in Boston, they initially played covers around the Boston clubs until songwriter Steve Cataldo joined the group in late 1967. Signed to MGM Records, they recorded an album in April/May 1968, produced by Alan Lorber, who was responsible for Bosstown Sound Productions. It's release was delayed by the numerous releases of the other MGM Bosstown acts; and when the band broke up before the album's imminent release, the label decided not to proceed without a functioning band to support it.
    The album is less psychedelic than some of the other Bosstown releases i.e Ultimate Spinach, Beacon Street Union and is more like early prog - similar in some ways to Detroit's SRC. Prophecies/Morning Blue opens with the sounds of children playing, over which elegiac voices intone predictions of nuclear holocaust. After a gradual accelaration, the music suddenly lurches at the point of climax into a heavily syncopated, frenetic jazz piano solo in 5/4 time. Prism Fawn has an imperious organ/guitar riff and a driving beat. One Eyed Minor is a jaunty piece in a folkdance rhythm and Feels Like Love is a nondescript rocker, but Silver Children has a pleasant relaxed groove and Valley Of Eyes is another intense apocalyptic piece with flanged drums and bluesy 1968-style fuzz guitar. Without You is a dull proto-70s softrocker and For The Best Offer ends the album in a tone of enigmatic whimsy. Overall an enjoyable addendum to the Bosstown canon.
    Cataldo later recorded as St. Steven, whilst Bartlett was in Brother Fox And The Tar Baby. Later still, Cataldo formed the punk band Nervous Eaters and played guitar on some Willie Alexander recordings. Essentially the band played good soft-psych.
    The bonus cuts on the reissue of the One St Stephen album are actually by Front Page Review. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Lloyd Peasley)

    Ford Theatre ~ 1968 ~ Trilogy For The Massesgenre: psych, prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 37'31" size: 238 mb

    Ford Theatre was typical of the sound of Boston psychedelic rock circa 1968: dark, foreboding, somber songs, sometimes quite long, with sub-California acid rock guitar, and more weight on the organ than many bands of the period carried. Certainly the instrumental break on the 14-minute "Wake Up in the Morning" owes a lot to Doors songs like "Light My Fire." The gothic, classically influenced "Theme for the Masses" is reprised a couple of times after it opens the album, giving the record a thematic aura that really isn't borne out by the contents. It's easy to imagine audiences grooving out to the lengthy breaks on "101 Harrison Street (Who You Belong To)" on those nights when there weren't any major headliners passing through town, settling for a reasonable approximation of psychedelic rock heavyweights. "Back to Philadelphia" takes a funkier, more straight-ahead approach, though the lyrics maintain a sense of displacement and disillusionment that permeates much of the music and lyrics. "Postlude Looking Back" closes the album on a gentler, almost countrified note, though again with the sort of muted gloom characteristic of the rest of the material.  –– Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
