Am in the middle of a bit of a late sixties psychedelic phase at the minute but as a young slip of a lad it is all a bit before my time and there is a lot of guff to wade through so thought I would see if there were any kindred spirits out there who could point me in the way of some albums or hidden gems I may be unaware of before I spend my hard earned because us Yorkshire folks reputation for frugality is not a myth and I don’t want to waste my money.

Have got some bits and bobs by the Pretty Things, The Seeds and Thirteenth Floor Elevators but would welcome any tips as to the more obscure stuff because as I am sure you can all appreciate looking on amazon is not too helpful as every album on there appears to score five stars and is according to the reviewer an undiscovered classic.

Late sixties psychedelic music? You're from Yorkshire, what the hell is the matter with you?

Thee's pulling tha leg.

I'm sure you want my advice, Jeff, so I would suggest you take a sh*t load of acid, stick on some Billy Bragg and it will do the same job.

Far out. Man.

*Word of caution; Don't visit any bars in Didsbury when you've dropped your acid. You're likely to get your face smashed in by a steroid enraged septic.

Not really my kind of thing, Rowley.

However, I can impart one bit of wisdom and say try Spotify. The basic version is free and if you search out Pretty Things for example you can follow related artists from there and listen to albums in full before you decide to buy them or not.

You will get adverts every now and then on the free version, and I think that it limits how many times you can listen to songs but for trying albums out before deciding whether to buy it's really useful.

I saw your reply and I thought poor Jeff needed some real, friendly guidance. Not mocking, and references to angry Americans nutting people in the north.

It did raise a chuckle from me though.

Cheers Sodhat

Despite my gruff Yorkshire exterior I am a man of some culture and do like a bit of variety when it comes to my music. You advise is more appreciated than Tina’s mocking tones. Can only assume he is still bitter about the fact I got Stone Roses tickets last year and he didn’t

You need to get some Seeds or 13th Floor Elevators in your life Tina, would say you'd thank me but I suspect you really would not.

Did you get Stone Roses tickets? I hadn't realised.

I will have a listen to your late 60's hippy, mid-life crisis music. Just to make you happy.

Unlike yourself, I am not a Luddite and do already have Spotify so I will get on it.

I saw The Stone Roses last year in the end too, it was only at V Festival in amongst a crowd that I sensed were a bit too into Rihanna though.

They were still excellent. I didn't even mind them going off on a 5 minute jazz odyssey after most songs.

You've probably got a shot at her. As in a romantic shot, not a shot like Chris Brown had at her.

Too early in the morning for domestic violence jokes?

Never too early, sodhat. Never too early.

She doesn't strike me as being too fussy, so yeah, I must have a chance.

Assuming, of course, that she goes for slightly tired looking white boys who may or may not be carrying a smidge more body fat that Chris Brown.

You should be thankful for me and sodhat or this would have disappeared into the ether of 606v2 forgotten threads. Although it would be kept company by a whole host of your other offerings.

Next time you post a well crafted piece on Charley Burley or Sam Langford, Rowley, I can always appear and steer it towards household abuse to get the comments up?

Pretty obvious but would recommend The Grateful Dead. Probably best to go for the live stuff as they were far better live than they were as a studio band. There are hundreds of different live albums if you're prepared to look hard enough but "Live Dead" is a good starting point and a great introduction to the band.

I contributed something useful in the very first post. Billy Bragg on acid, it works.

Don't need acid to enjoy the majesty of Talking with the Taxman about Poetry Tina.

Rumours it is tophat's favourite album are largely unsubstantiated.

Bit desperate, Gia. You're better than that.

I once wrote a thread about an obscure Irish heavyweight that got 2 replies and about 8 views. You don't know how much that hurt.

Have you watched City of Life and Death, yet?

A 25% post/view ratio isn't to be sniffed at mate.

Not got round to that film yet, no. I'll add another post to my Asian Film thread when I do though, no worries.

Got to say it is depressing that a thread about 60's psychedelic music got more responses than nearly every thread in the top ten uncrowned champions series that I genuinely put some graft into on a sports forum.

I would claim they were interesting rather than a rather transparent attempt to pick up an trophy at the end of season awards but I think we both know the truth.

I presume you've tried Love. The band, not the emotion. Their album Forever Changes is meant to be a bit of a psychedelia classic, is it not?

Have indeed got forever changes and a couple of others of theirs. Forever Changes is far and away the best, in fact would go as far as to say it is possibly my favourite sixties album. Highly recommended to anyone who cares.

Enjoyed it mate. Have only listened it a couple of times as I found a website that has links to shedloads of stuff from that era on (all legal I am sure) so have got mountains of the stuff to get through, plenty of Electric Prunes and countless other bands nobody has ever heard of, some drivel to wade through but some absolute belters as well.

Drivel seems to come with the territory. Have a mate who has several hundred live Dead concert recordings and some of them are appalling.

Tend to agree Superfly, some of it is about as close to unlistenable as you would ever want to get. Downloaded an album by a band called the United States of America, the first song is about the maddest thing I have ever listened to. Am determined to get it eventually though, is all part of my mid-life crisis.
