VARIOUS ARTISTS “Brown Acid The Fifth Trip”

“Brown Acid The Fifth Trip”
(Riding Easy Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I was born in 1970. Yeah, I know. I am as old as time itself. But being raised in the 70s meant that I was subjected to a lot of cool stuff on the radio. A lot of crap too but that has thankfully not stuck. So whenever I hear stuff from the 70s I get all cozy and warm. This compilation series from Riding Easy Records collects rare stuff from the 60s and 70s that you might not have heard before. I know that I haven’t. This fifth installment spans 68 – 77 divided on ten tracks and ten bands. What strikes me the most is that this stuff doesn’t sound ancient in any way. Most of it could have been recorded today. This is a really cool collection of stuff that I hear for the first time. Anders Ekdahl
