Well the best-known I guess would be early Floyd, Beach Boys, Love, Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Deadetc., but if you like it a bit grittier 13th Floor Elevators'"Easter Everywhere" is my top pick

- never got the recognition they deserved. Pink Faires ditto, though proggier...

All the big-name boys got on board too - Doors, Beatles, Stones, Bowieetc. Pretty-much datelined 67-71, though there are plenty of exceptions.

Great genre

:goodone:V fond of Hendrix, Airplane (Surrealistic Pillow, After Bathing at Baxters'), The Dead (Live Dead, Anthem of the Sun)& Floyd myself.

Arguably some of the early days of prog were quite psychedelic: Van der Graaf Generator's early stuff (68-71, Aerosol Grey Machine, maybe H to He, Who Am the Only One); the Canterbury scene, esp some Caravan (Land of Grey & Pink).

I'd also consider some "kraut rock": Amon Duul II; early Tangerine Dream (Atem, Zeit, Alpha Centauri); early Can; Neu!; Faust; that class of thing.

Happy listening!

For £5 you can't go wrong with the Nuggets compilation for a starting point - it may make you spend much more money though.

You could also check out the Love, Peace and poetry compilations (each volume focuses on the psychedelic music of a country or a region) - I especially enjoy the Mexican Psychedelic Music volume.

As well as those mentioned by others

Others worth a listen

Electric Prunes - I had too much to dream Last Night

13th Floor Elevators - Psychedelic Sounds Of..

forgot to say I know about the main stream/big artists, was after stuff lik eyou mentioned there, 13th floor elevators etc, that nuggets compilation looks good as well so I'll give that a punt at a fiver.

Went to a PFM (Italian prog rock)gig once with some college friends,our beer was spiked with "White Lightning",don't remember anything about what happened after that.Although when I went for a piss in the morning,looked out the bedroom window to see an Elephant on the green across the road.

Without turning this thread into a deabte about drugs, when I was at school, LSD tabs were like sweets, I havent seen any around since, dont know what happened but you just dont see it around these days, its either weed or coke :Not Sure:

Hi, i'd suggest trying Ten Years After and Argent,also for something different there's a Temptations compilation called Psychedelic Soul with tracks from the late 60s and early 70s which is pretty cool.

Seconded for the Pebbles compilations. And a purple microdot.

Don’t drop acid kids!

One of my favourite videos. LSD testing on British troops. Narrated in a Mr Chumley Warner style.

Never give a rocket launcher to trippy troops. Very silly.

It all goes a bit awry when private Jones climbs a tree to feed the birds.
