Various: The Best Of 60s Psychedelic Rock (Original Master Recordings) 1988


Psychedelic rock emerged in the late 1960s when hallucinogenic drugs like LSD went mainstream. This music inspired by or attempting to replicate the mind-altering experiences brought on by psychoactive drugs such as cannabis, psilocybin, mescaline, salvia divinorum, and especially LSD. There are also other forms of psychedelic music that started from the same roots and diverged from the prevalent rock style into electronic music. Psych rock bands took elements of blues and folk rock and added fuzz guitar and lengthy solos, setting the stage for hard rock and progressive rock to emerge in the 1970s.

Best of 60's Psychedelic Rock is an entertaining, albeit brief, budget-line collection that contains several familiar trippy pop and psychedelicized rock hits from the late '60s. There are no surprises or insight in the collection, but it remains a good bargain, considering its budget price.
