This one looks essential. A Slight Disturbance In My Mind – The British Proto-Psychedelic Sounds of 1966.
The term mod does cover a lot of ground musically, but hopefully this the mod’s guide to Record Store Day 2019 ticks most of the required boxes.
Possibly of interest to readers of these pages is the upcoming Just A Bad Dream: Sixty British Garage Nuggets 1981-89 box set.
Seems to be the season of the box set. Next on the upcoming list is A Kaleidoscope Of Sounds: Psych & Freakbeat Masterpieces, which is actually a vinyl box set.
No flat caps and No ‘Mr Grimsdale ‘here, but you do get both the swinging sixties and the Pretty Things in What’s Good For The Goose.
Now this is substantial. The Looking At The Pictures In The Sky: The British Psychedelic Sounds Of 1968 box set that is, which is coming out soon via Cherry Red.
If you don’t subscribe to it, why not? But you can still pick up the new Shindig! magazine in newsagents and online right now.
Cherry Red always does a good box set, so I’ve high hopes for Night Comes Down – 60 mod, R&B and freakbeat London nuggets.
