The result was a very British distillation of the psychedelic encounter, the Lear-like playfulness of many of his lyrics finding a contrast in eruptive cosmic-blues jams like Astronomy Domine and freeform epic, Interstellar Overdrive. Nearly half a century on, Floyd’s debut still sounds like nothing else. Who released the first ever rock opera? If you said The Who, then go immediately into remedial rock classes. This album came out in December 1968, nearly six months before Tommy. The concept is built around Sebastian F. Sorrow, whose life is tracked from birth to old age, and there are some similarities in construction to Tommy, even though The Who have long denied . Sorrow was any sort of influence.
There are no less than THREE films sharing the title Psychomania. Besides the music movie discussed here, there is a 1971 film dealing with the sensitive subject of undead motorcyclists, and an earlier effort from 1963 having something to do with a misunderstood Korean war veteran axe murderer running rampant through a small New England town. As far as I know Frank Zappa has absolutely nothing to do with these two films. Top Main Discography Songlist Covers Chronology Videography.
Pure: Psychedelic Rock, VariousAudio CD. VARIOUS ARTISTS. It was great to see Sky Pilot included - this classic received scant airplay, but it was among the best of the genre. Journey to the Center of the Mind showcases Ted Nugent's formidable guitar chops - this riff features clean phrasing on a hollow-bodied guitar - no distortion, wah-wah or any other tricks, yet it remains one of the classic psychedelic guitar riffs. Summertime Blues by Blue Cheer is fun and aggressive, but it lacks the attitude of the Who's version . In summary, a fun album for reminiscing, but students of psychedelic history will want to dig deeper. 3 people found this helpful.
