Deep - Psychedelic Moods (expanded) (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 18-CICD-977
Early psychedelic/proto-psychedelic rarity and perhaps even a classic!

"The Deep were a Philadelphia-based studio-only band whose one and only album, Psychedelic Moods was released to critical acclaim in 1966. Recorded in a darkened Philadelphia studio one night, this pioneering album was the first album ever to have the word "psychedelic" in its title, beating out “The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators” and The Blues Magoo’s “Psychedelic Lollipop” by one month.
The album sold in minute amounts, possibly due to the unforeseen smash success of The Deep’s label mates, Question Mark and The Mysterions’ whose hit ‘96 Tears’ was number one on the charts. Since that time however, “Psychedelic Moods” has attained cult status as one of the definitive examples of the then newly emerging “psychedelic sound”. The album was intended to provide the listener with a simulated acid trip, replete with fuzz guitar, flute, backwards guitars, banjo, washboard, xylophone, wild sound effects, and love making. Songs such as ‘Trip #76,’ ‘Psychedelic Moon,’ ‘Pink Ether,’ and ‘Color Dreams’ explored the hallucinatory agony and ecstasy of a 12-hour Technicolor dream.
Now over 40 years later, this release of “Psychedelic Moods” contains never before heard masters of The Deep that reveal sonic qualities and nuances of their sound that have not been realized till now... and why? Because the source for this reissue is the original four track tapes. In addition to the superlative masters, there are previously unseen Deep memorabilia and liner notes detailing the mysterious rise and fall of this New York City band that included David Bromberg and Rusty Evans. The Deep’s sound, while similar to that of The Velvet Underground, pre-dates that band’s first album, “The Velvet Underground and Nico” by five months. Made with full co-operation of original Deep producers, Mark Barkan and Rusty Evans.”
