The REAL 500 Best Albums Of All Time - Part 38 of 100 - "More Late Psych Psixties Greats"

THORINSHIELD - "Thorinshield" (1968)

I love this record just because I never could figure out what in the Hell they were up to! Mystery in music is a good thing! Pop Schmock, but interesting with titles like Life Is A Dream," and "Daydreaming," with awkward horn arrangements! Better than the whole Windham Hill catalogue!

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE - "After Bathing At Baxter's" (1967)

Although I've already put two other Jefferson Airplane records on this list, "After Bathing At Baxter's" is my favourite Airplane album! It is perfectly crazy from start to finish!


The most beautiful, and one of the best songs on the record is the shortest, and the only one written by unheralded bass player Harvey Brooks called "Harvey's Tune!" This is a great LP!

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - "The United States Of America" (1967)

This is another one of those records that doesn't get enough creds for being weird ahead of it's time! It's not always comforting, but then, "Reality Is Only Temporary!"

VANILLA FUDGE - "Vanilla Fudge" (1967)

The greatest and most original cover band ever!


  1. Wow, I don't own any of these! I've been looking for ABAB for a while, I love Surrealistic Pillow.

    Only recently heard of Super Session so I'm looking for it also.

    I'll check out the others. I should be putting all you selections into a spreadsheet.

  2. I love ABAB! It sounds like they took all they money they made from "Surrealistic Pillow" and spent it on drugs and studio time, and just had a blast!
