Waterpipes & Dykes - Dutch Psychedelia 1966 - 1972

Year: 1966-1972
Country: Netherlands

I've got a bunch of great compilations featuring psychedelia from all over the world so I'll start sharing some of those. It's amazing how many great obscure psychedelic bands existed all over the world in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Click here to listen.

Awesome! Glad you like the blog. I'm going to try my best and keep it going for a long time. I have so much music that I don't know what to post sometimes. Any requests?

Thaks for the offer Jay. Actually I've been looking for a paisley/pop lp posted somewhere/anywhere for awhile now. The band is "eyes of mind". LP is titled "tales of the turquoise umbrella". It came out on Voxx in1984 and as far as I know has never been issued on disc. I'm probably looking back on it more fondly than it merits but just maybe you've got the damn thing. Thanks!

I've never heard of Eyes of Mind so I don't have it. However, I regularly visit a lot of mp3 sites and buy a lot of vinyl so I will be on the lookout for it and let you know if I find it somewhere.

Big THX for this album. Peculiar to see that even in those days we where more proud of our dykes than our dikes, even more peculiar that it took us more than 30 years or so to allow gay marriage(:
I' foundd some info for Jeff about Eyes Of Mind:
A spinoff from L.A. psychpunk geniuses Three O'Clock, this band had an even more fey, marvellously twee sound that was so reminiscent of British art pop circa 1967 that we hooked them up with original British production wizard Mark Wirtz (Tomorrow, etc.) who brought all his Abbey Road skills to bear in creating this endlessly wonderful EP, the band's only surviving epitaph. Members included Jamie Phelan (guitar, lead vocals) , Mark Kuhlman (keyboards, harmony vocals), Rick Tracy (bass) and Troy Howell (drums). [5/84] Greg Shaw.

EVEN BIGGER THX
I found a very dear memory on this album: Dirty (Underwear) a band I saw regularly playing as Eindhoven's underground pride of the 60's. But what really struck me was that the song was written by Hans Sanders, who became big in Holland, Belgium and Germany as the leader of Bots and was one of my best friends during the last 20 years, but sadly died november last year.
