listen to the song:

Psychedelic-Blues, -Rock 'n' Roll and -Freak Out. great guitar playing, great male voice and hammond organ. Enjoy!

I'm sittin' here all alone
got back from my trip at home
that I feel so good inside
with a feelin' that I can't hide
my days are counted
and my life seems far away
my rainbows are exploded
and my dreams have started to fade
my mind has started to bend
I feelin' close to my end
but I feel so good inside
with a feelin' that I can't hide

YEAH Alright

hold ooooooooooooon

YEAH Alright

I said I'm up and I'm down
and I can't keep my feed on the ground
go around, oh, and around

ohhhau Freakout

well, the rest I can't understand... maybe you can write the rest down and post it on the comments... greetings, amadeus :)

[1969] It's A Beautiful Day - Love For You (Bulgaria)

listen to the song:

released 1969 on the selftitled album "It's A Beautiful Day". But the single "Bulgaria / Aquarian Dream" was rleased 1968. The band was founded in San Francisco 2 years before, 1967. Sweet San Francisco Psychedelic Rock, the singing á la Jefferson Airplane... the violin takes a very important part in this song I belive... Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

and thanks for some great info's by "Anonymous" ;) about this song:
The single "Bulgaria" was mis-titled by their manager Matthew Katz. The song (which also appeared on the Pipe Dream comp) is called "Love For You" (which is obvious when you listen to it!). The flipside, although good, is nothing to do with the IABD band at all, and was more Matthew Katz "magaing".

[1970] Agincourt - Though I May Be Dreaming

Soft male and female voice, soft acoustic guitar and flute. well, dreamy acid folk released 1970 on the album "Fly Away". Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

[1966] Jefferson Airplane - And I Like It

listen to the song:

relaxed guitar playing, soft male hushbury voice. this is an alternative take from 1966. the lyrics are very groovy too:

This is my life
I'm satisfied
So watch it
Don't try to keep me tied
So why not
Let me be satisfied
This is my life
This is my Way
This is my time
This is my dream
You know i like it
This is my Way
It suits me fine
So watch it doing
Or i leave you behind
So why not
Fit your life in with mine
This is my way
This is my time
This is my dream
This is my life
You know i like it
I like it
Now tell me what you see
Is it the same thing you want me to be
I've seen it all happen so long before
Please believe when i say it's a bore
I need more
I need more
I need more more
This is my time
I'm doing my best
So watch it
Ain't gonna be like the rest, no
So why not
Get away from the mass
This is my time
This is my Dream
This is my way
This is my life
You know i like it
I like it
You know it's mine

Enjoy! greetings,
amadeus :)

[1971] Witthueser & Westrupp - Orienta

listen to the song:

Withüser & Westrupp were a german acid folk and kraut band, singing songs with dreamy psychedelic lyrics. This song is about, well, hard to find the right words, well, here are the german lyrics:

Auf der Suche nach einem neuen Wech
klopfen wir an die Himmelstüre
ein Mann names Petrus öffnet ganz sacht
und er fragt: "Seid ihr es, die da kommen sollen,
uns den Shit zu bringen?"

Wir streichen aus, alle die wir kennen, uns eingeschlossen
und wir treten ein, in den Ewigen Frühling
wir sehen die himmlischen Heerscharen
mit den ewigen Joints auf ihren Wolken sitzen
und ihr Gesang steicht unaufhaltsam in den Händen der Sonne

Die sieben Erzengel bringen unsere ewigen Joints
und gemeinsam schweben wir zu den immer-grünen Liebewiesen
und wir stimmen ein in den Lobgesang der Engel auf Lordid Drack

I will try to translate:
On the search of a new way
we are knoking on heavens door
a man named Petrus opened very gently
and he asked: "Are you the guys, that should come,
and bring us the shit?"

we scratch out, all we knew, even us
and we enter, into the eternal spring
we see the heavenly host
with their eternal joints, sitting on their clouds
and their singing rised inexorable in the hands of the sun

the seven archangel bringin' us our eternal joints
and together we floating to the indeciduous love-meadow
and we join in into the canticle of the angles on Lordid Drack

great guitar playing, and a lot of small instruments, stoned, in a trance, a whole chor. For downloading some albums of them click here and here. Enjoy! greetings, amadeus :)

[1967] West Coast Natural Gas - A Favor

listen to the song:

This is the B-Side of "Go Run and Play", Produced by Matthew Katz and Charlie Burkes. The song is written by Steven Mack. The band is from San Francisco. Apparently this band was an early incarnation of "Indian Puddin' and Pipe" also produced by Matthew Katz. Fine Psychedelic Rock with some deep feelings, a mix of dark clouds hanging of above big-and-fat-buildings-of-a-dirty-city and sunshine shining into a smokey room with coloured walls etc. in the afternoon... Here you can find some other Info about the band.
