Try and categorise stuff to make it interesting, unless you can think of an ultimate psych top ten, personally we would have to break it down (cos we cannot decide on 10 tracks!!!! and also we get to compile several charts instead of one!!!).

Today's top 10 obscure psychedelic albums you can get cheap!

Sick of paying 50, 100 or more dollars for highly-touted psychedelic rarities only to be disappointed when they don't live up to the hype?
Here's ten totally fantasticalbums that you can get cheap--for 30 dollars or less, and in some cases for less than ten bucks.

1. Zephyr - SUNSET RIDE. Tommy Bolin left the band and then everybody ignored them. They also ignored the fact that they went on to make an album that's not only a zillion times better than the ones with Bolin, but best album in that huge genre of psychy blues-rock albums with female singers.

2. Chrysalis - DEFINITION. The most beautiful folk-psych album of them all. Stunning songwriting and performances. Amazingly, it's never been reissued.

3. Kensington Market - AARDVARK. Along with Plastic Cloud (which WILL cost you thousands), the cream of Canadian psych. Brilliant album with amazingly diverse and creative songs.

4. Daughters of Albion - DAUGHTERS OF ALBION. Completely ignored and forgotten album that twists sunshiny pop into every bizarre form imaginable.
Kathy Yesse's gorgeous voice and a dozen singalong melodie are given even more substance by weird production tricks, odd song structures, inpenetrable lyrics ("alms and balms and kumquats, Charlie") and an unbelieveable 7-minute summation of the year 1968 that sounds like it was written in 1958.

5. Colours - COLOURS. You can tell from the spelling of their name that these guys wish they were British. Fantastic songs here, including one of the best orchestrated pop songs ever ("Bad Day At Black Rock, Baby") and a pretty fair summation (parody?) of the free-loving 60s ("Brother Lou's Love
Colony.")
6. Grapefruit - AROUND. An even better Beatles imitation. Merges 1965 with 1968 quite nicely.

7. Damnation of Adam Blessing - SECOND DAMNATION. Not psychedelic, I suppose, but pretty much the best hard rock album of the early 70s. Why this hasn't achieved classic status is a total mystery to me.

8. Mortimer - MORTIMER. Another beautiful psych/pop album that no one remembers, except Richard Davies, who actually covered one of these songs on the self-titled album by Cardinal.

9. Thorinshield: S/T. As good a RUBBER SOUL wannabe album as you'll hear.

10. Karen Beth - THE JOYS OF LIFE. Yeah, she's got a weird-ass voice, and maybe that's why nobody bought or remembers this, but other than the opening horn-dominated song, this is probably the best acid-folk album by a female singer-songwriter.

Top Ten Something...

1. Magic Carpet - Same - When I first started hearing about all the rare UK psychedelic folk with sitars and female vocals I was usually disappointed because it was this record I was hearing in my imagination. When I first heard this I felt like I'd come home.

2. Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home - I remember hearing "Subterranean Homesick Blues" on the a.m. car radio in 1965 and saying "Pull over! Pull over!" and jumping out of the car to see if the aliens were landing. There was nothing like this until there was this (and I'm
not sure that's true of anything else).

3. The Beatles - I Am The Walrus - Racing across a 6-lane highway on foot to buy the 45 of "Hello Goodbye" the day it was released, my friends and I listened and then flipped it over and everything was, I don't know... different from that point on. I believe the fact that it took B-side status to the very sub-par A-side became the core of John's animosity toward Paul from that point on.

4. The Rolling Stones - Gomper - The MONO version from "Their Satanic Majesties..." For psychedelia, one might assume that stereo would always be superior to mono sound. Listening to this I conclude that one would be very wrong. A thin and boring LP in stereo, the mono version is a revelation and this is the most psychedelic these boys EVER got.

5. The Chambers Brothers - Time Has Come Today - Live in Philadelphia at The Electric Factory, circa 1968. The back wall was lined with coffins placed at just the right angle so you could lie down while standing up. I was 15 years old, this was my first concert, this song lasted about 9 hours and by the end I knew one day I would take drugs and that that day
would be very soon.

6. Biff Rose - Uncle Jesus Auntie Christ - Both the 1972 A&M LP, which is brilliant, and the Christmas eve 1973 evening at The Main Point, a tiny club just outside of Philadelphia, on 900 mics of the legendary Philadelphia blotter acid sitting in the dark exploding redness while
this combination of Mose Allison and Bill Evans on LSD whipped the small room into a slow intense fury that ended with a small blue light hitting his face as his eyes just happened to be staring straight into mine as he sang "He's only a shell of a man, but if you hold him to your ear you can hear the ocean ROAR!" Thank you.

7. Van Morrison - Moondance - Yeah, all the psych guys pick "Astral Weeks" which is brilliant BUT the image I have always had of Van is of a wrestling ring in which James Brown and Jackie Wilson are in one corner, and William Butler Yeats and John Donne are in the other. On every album one of these teams pins the other, except this one; here they meet in the middle of the ring, smoke a joint and go off to a pub arm in arm.

8. Miles Davis - Agharta - Just before his death, Jimi Hendrix had booked time for his first sessions with Miles. These never happened and there is no record of their ever having recorded together. Pete Cosey's playing on this double live LP is the close we will ever come and it's almost close enough.

9. Forever Amber - The Love Cycle - 99 copies pressed in 1969 and the thing is... if this had been a major label band it would be remembered as one of the finest moments of the period. The fact that it was a bunch of teenagers from the north of England who did this and disappeared forever makes it an accomplishment of incredible proportions. More memorable hooks per inch than any record ever made, Zombies meets Beach Boys harmonies to does for. Better than "Odyssey & Oracle" and "Pet Sounds" and I'll stand on Brian Wilson's coffee table in my bare feet and shout it.

10. George Harrison - Within You Without You - OK so it's The Beatles and yes it's a sentimental favorite because he recently died and maybe "Love To You" made a bigger initial impression but there's no better first song side two within a thousand miles of this and the impression it made when you flipped that impossibly shiny record over for the very first time is impossible to describe.

Subliminal Sonic Laxatives (15 mind-numbing guitar/instrumental acid freakouts!)

1. Section 43 (Country Joe & The Fish) (pure bliss!)
2. Eastern Jam (Country Joe & The Fish) (some of the most wigged out guitar playing ever recorded from a Bay Area band!)
3. East > West (Butterfield Blues Band) (Their finest moment?!)
4. Acapulco Gold & Silver (Quicksilver MS) (The definition of the San Francisco Sound!)
5. April 15th (The Human Beinz) (Raw, fuzzed-out pandemonium!)
6. Ganges (Bardo Pond) (Thick, Heavy, Swirling, All Consuming, Simply put...Awesome!)
7. Spare Chaynge (Jefferson Airplane) (A superb psych jam, by a band not as comfortable with improvised jamming as some of their contemporaries)
8. Interstellar Overdrive (Pink Floyd) (Raw, Primitive, Mind-Expandingly good!)
9. Dark Star (Grateful Dead) (Sure, there are lyrics here, but hey, most of its 20+ minutes is Jerry and the boys noodling away!)
10. Maggot Brain (Funkadelic) (Dare I be controversial?  Eddie Hazel's guitar work on this track rivals Hendrix!  There, I said it!)
11. Sunflower Power (Canned Heat) (Henry Vestine creates sonic space on this all too short of a track from their best album "Livin The Blues")
12. Chocolate Angel (Neighb'rhood Child'rn) (Very Psyched out!)
13. Magnolia Caboose Babyfinger (Blue Cheer) (Psychedelic Heavy Metal before the term was coined!)
14. Baroque No. 1 (Ultimate Spinach) (Sounding like CJ & The Fish, The Spinach create great swirling melodies on this blissed out track from their 1st LP-clearly before the bad trip of "Behold & See" set in!),
15. My Father, My King (Mogwai) (20+ minutes of melodic guitar work which climaxes into sheer white noise. One of the best new guitar bands around! Absolutely stunning as a live act too!!)
 
Happy New Year!
