  • Mystic moods

    Just been listening to July's RealAudio - noice! - and I was wondering if anyone could spill the beans on more decent Mystic Moods tracks? I'm always drawn to their tasteful covers but only see them for a few quid or more (and not the one with Cosmic Sea neither) in Reckless or Exchange and suspect that it'd be like taking a punt on the duff Percy Faiths... So, can anyone give me the beta?

    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

    Rich..........check out their album 'Erogenous'.

    There's a very nice couple of funky tracks on there - can't remember the names of 'em. I haven't checked that album out for ages.

    The songs on at least one of the sides have been loosely segued together using waterfall sounds. Should be an easy come up, and I think it has been released twice (has two different covers).

      I've got a great funky 45 taken from that LP - both sides are nice - I think one is called "Midnight Snack" and I'll check what the other side is called when I'm at home.

      I've got "Cosmic Sea" on "Awakenings" which is actually quite a nice lp - sort of easy/funk/prog - but I think it's on another LP too and a 45.

              Honey Trippin' on erogenous is a spanky little numba. Moogy-flutey-fonkykindashit.
              I've seen it, and awakenings, for about £8 a couple of times.

                  That's the other side!Thanks - it's been bugging me all morning. Looks like you should stick to trying to snaffle up the 45s Rich.

                    I've got Erogenous with 2 different sleeves, you see the one with the yellow-ish cover (is that a picture of an orchid right there??) the most and the other one is as far as I know the original version on Soundbird, gold die-cut cover with the inner sleeve showing a naked black couple in soft focus.
                    Excellent album and the only Mystic Moods album you can play from start to finish without getting too annoyed.

                    There seem to be different versions around from "Cosmic Sea", I have the 7" which is the same as on their Awakenings LP. Their Cosmic Force album has a slightly different version with effects added on the drums.
                    It's also on Rare Funk vol. 8, that version has a man talking some nonsense before the drums drop in.

                    Anybody heard of any other good Moods tracks?

                        Am I the only one round these parts who actually likes 'One Stormy Night', then? Stringy to the max, and completely devoid of funk & drums, but those thunderstorms are completely ace. Lovely stuff...
