Here is the first in a series of mix-mp3s I’ll be putting together as time goes by documenting the music that I listen to and some of my influences.
The purpose of the mixes is twofold; to show off some of the music that has influenced me and the way I make music and at the same time expose listeners to some really fantastic music they may not have heard.
The compilations will be themed and I’ll be doing cover art for them too.
This one is called ‘Now That’s What I Call Psychedelic Music, Vol. 1’ and features a line-up of some great (albeit somewhat obvious) Psychedelic Music (Rock mostly). The album art is a reference to the Country Joe & The Fish album cover for Psychedelic Music for the Mind & Body (really cool album - check it out).
The tracklist is mostly populated by Hendrix tunes (he’s one of my biggest influences) but there are a few other great tracks in here. Hopefully there will be another Psychedelic Music mix on the way with some less obvious tracks, but for now enjoy some of my favourite Psychedelic Music. Turn on, tune in and drop out.
