Alice In Wonderland Other Various Artists CD

 

Tennessee might not be the first place on the map which springs to mind when embarking on a magical mystery tour of the 1960s psychedelic scene, much less Nashville, with its long-established folk and country music traditions.  And yet, as this trip into the obscure backwaters of Southern popsike, blues-infused garage and bubblegum soul reveals, Music City wasn't all Nudie suits and steel guitars, no siree. 
 
By delving into the further recesses of the Sun and SSS International catalogues and casting its net as far south as Florida, this carefully compiled 2CD uncovers forgotten forays into the realms of fuzz-laden garage rock, lilting Baroque pop and saccharine psychedelia along with those whose wig-out weirdness defies easy categorisation.  Dig stinging sitars and Farfisa-fuelled fun?  Then hop aboard!
 
40 original US recordings 1965-71 from the vaults of Sun & SSS Int'l
 
Includes rare & previously unreleased recordings plus others new to CD
 
Deluxe digibook package includes a fully-annotated 24pp photo-laden booklet
