VA - The American Dream? Psychedelic Sounds From America 1967-1969




Well, here is two mixtapes I made with american psychedelia from the years 1967-1969. This was not any try to do a fair or serious overwiev of the scene or the era at all. The focus is on psychedelia, and not on any kind of garage rock (wich is often misstaken or wrong stated as "psychedelic"). Psychedelia in my point of view is this two mixtapes, often dark and haunting, sometimes with backwards effects and/or vibes and parts from the middle east, maybe some sitars and/or fuzzy or acid guitars. Remember, this is just my favourite tracks from the era, and I made those to listen to for myself. I hope some of you find something groovy to blow your mind with. Enjoy!
