  • African psychedelic music

    Just wondering if anyone here's got/heard the Peace Love & Poetry 'African Psychedelic' set yet? Looks intriguing, but don't know any of the names and wondered if it's actually afro-psych, or just white bands from Africa doing the usual...

    Also, anyone heard this yet? Looks extremely tempting, anyway... http://www.president-records.co.uk/code....154.htm

    That President comp is a bit late - Tenth Planet's 'electric lemonade acid test' LP concentrated on the best tracks from that list (which is basically tracks 1-13 + 27). Of the others, only the Barbara Ruskin + Pure Gold tracks are proper, er, bo

    Still worth getting if you haven't got the Tenth Planet.

      Are any of these secret Eddy Grant tracks under pseudonyms? He did quite a few for President, but I don&#39;t recognise any of these.

        Zappatta Schmidt, naturally.

        You probably mean any others, right?

        I have a spare of the Zappatta by the way Bill if you need one?

          I&#39;ve got the Zappatta stuff, but he was involved in lots of other stuff, too, such as Sundae Times (I think he produced it), Symarip (Pyramids backwards, basically) and a ton of others that I can&#39;t remember.

            it&#39;s pretty good, but it is mostly - but not all - white bands from Zimbabwe and South Africa.
            We know when a mate buys it for you too.

                    Cheers - will have to try &amp; cop a listen in the shop. I&#39;ve found some of that series fantastic, some a bit so-so (eg: the contrast between the excellent Asian Psych, and disappointing - to me, anyway - Japanese Psych sets...) so now approach with a little more caution than in times past&#33;

                    Saw that President comp in Selectadisc for £8.99, so might pick that up anyway: 13+ good &#39;uns seems reasonable for that price&#33;
