The most colorful, detailed, and authoritative guide to the psychedelic albums of the 1960s ever published.
As the 1960s progressed, a socially conscious counterculture emerged — one defined by rock and roll. Artists began to explore trippy new sounds, musicianship reached unsurpassable levels, and for a brief, glorious moment, audiences embraced the genuinely experimental. Never before or since were so many classic albums made in such a short time. From Cream’s Disraeli Gears to the Zombies’ OdesseyandOracle, Psychedelia examines 101 of the era’s most groundbreaking records. Contemporary reviews, rare photographs, new interviews, and a plethora of iconic images and reproductions of cover artwork make this a treasure no music fan should be without.
