    Great selections! I'm especially delighted that you included the Paupers 1st album among those other fantastic albums... Growing up in Toronto in the 60s, I was fortunate to have seen the Paupers many times in small venues, and they were definitely a great Psychedelic band. Live they were quite a bit better than their Magic People album. Their records never lived up to the intensity and excitement of their live shows.
    I also saw them open for Jimi Hendrix at the CNE Colisium in 1968 Classic Poster - Jimi Hendrix Experience at CNE Coliseum, Toronto 2/24/68 by Gary Grimshaw

    Psychedelia may have been over in the US and the US by the end of the 60s, but in other parts of the world like South America and Turkey is was still going strong well into the 70s; possibly into the 80s Here are some examples

    As I'm not a musician (or for some other reason) I don't notice the out of tuning. It's the vibe of the album I like. That's all I care about.

    That’s funny (the college seminar). I took an urban anthro class and the professor suggested that “if you want to understand hippies, go listen to some Mamas & Papas...” At the time I thought that was funny but in hindsight, he did have something there.

    John Philips was a part of the corporate machine. Lennon called them Day Trippers or weekend hippies.Just like individuals who buy Harleys and call themselves bikers but only ride on weekend being a hippie just like being a biker is a total complete dedication to a anti-authorive lifestyle.The hippie was buried in Haight-Ashbury in 1967 because the lifestyle had become popularised by the media of the Establishment.John Phillips regardless of what history says was a sellout to that Establishment.Peace.

    Psychedelic rock was / is supposed to be a musical trip troughout "inner space", "mind" and "soul" (Greek psukhē = soul, breath), while Space Rock was / is devoted to "take you" up there, among stars.
    Musical difference is that the Space Rock is heavier and louder, more repetative and faster, and with something less experimentation than Psychedelic rock which can be bluesy, jazzy, folkish and even with strong influence of avantgarde.

    Big fan here. Though, Family's Music in a Doll's House is Progressive rock, not Psychedelic rock album.
    Music in a Doll's House is actually one of the '60s Progressive rock albums which separated the "progressive music" from psychedelia movement.

    Definitely an underrated band. I have a soft spot for bands who plays west coast inspired psych rock, Conqueroo from Texas was another really great band. Probably the worst recording in the history of music, but Charlie Prichards guitarwork is outstanding on this tune:

    I took a lot of acid and mushrooms whilst listening to Hawkwind, in fact my first trip was 2 black microdots whilst this very album was playing through giant wardrobe sized speakers at a biker's party out in the New Forest - so it was pretty psychedelic to me :D

    :rolleyes: I guess it's nice, 50+ years on that there are still "true believers" out there. Personally, I didn't live through the era and just think The Mamas and the Papas are an excellent 60s pop band. And whatever the Dead's problem with Philips and Lou Adler was after Monterey, it didn't stop them playing Me and My Uncle for the next three decades.

    As great as the debut album and "Near the Beginning" are, this is their masterpiece and it's vastly underappreciated.

    I have the CD version of "Tomorrow" and I like the bonus tracks better than I do the original album (but the album itself is pretty good).
