Various Artists - White Lace And Strange (1968-72 us, heavy psych and power fuzz)



By the end of the sixties psychedelia was pretty much a spent force. Bands were looking for something simpler and more earthy. Crosby, Stills & Nash had gone all acoustic and harmonious, The Band had achieved a return to classic Americana, and James Taylor was showing the world you could be laid back and hip at the same time. However, not everyone wanted to ditch their fuzzboxes.

Inspired by such outfits as Cream, Blue Cheer, Hendrix and the nascent Led Zeppelin, these American bands were moving out of psych into something less cosmic and far heavier. This mix of blooze rock and heavy riffing is loud and nasty but it pre-dates metal. It's pretty tripped out, but it's not really psychedelia. It's the sound of guitar, bass and drums (and the occasional Hammond organ) just as it was meant to be, cranked up and in your face. No frills, just power chords and stomping riffs. Stamp on that Big Muff and solo till your brain drops out.

I love the phrase "It's All Gone Heavy Over There" ... What's up with that, where does that come from, is that supposed to be what the British were saying about US rock in this time period?

Hi! Have problems with Pt1 while Pt2 is OK.
Thx

I've just download and checked all links and files,the problem was with the "Uploading" link, both Hotfile and Deposit are ok, so either you download both Hotfile or the 1st Hotfile and the 2nd part from Deposit, -you just have to rename the Deposit (without the underlines) exactly as Hotfile is-.
Thank you

Many thanks for posting and sharing these interesting compilations. Unfortunately part1 has no mirror and the only link is dead ....
Hoping for a reup in 320kb. All the best, Alfred.

Phil Gordon said...

Can you re-up? Tanx.

Hi Marios,

I second Anonymous' request for 320 kbps re-up. I'd appreciate an answer if you are planning to do it (Vol.2 has got .mp3 download link, so I presume you already made it).

Cheers, and thank you in advance.
