Various Artists - The Golden Road The Electric Coffee House Vol.2 (60's us, electric folk psych treasures)



A little while back we took a journey into that time when American folk music discovered electric rock and pop. The result was The Electric Coffee House compilation. That turned out to be one of our most successful albums, so consequently we've been having another delve into that hallowed region of chiming guitars, righteous harmony and garage joy.

Once again, we're delighted to present an intriguing selection of obscurities, some primitive, some sophisticated, some Psychedelic, some full of pop sensibility, but all of it with an essential, omnipresent undercurrent of folk tradition, albeit filtered through amplifiers and pick-ups, but there none the less. You'll hear from Ian Whitcomb's kid brother, Chuck Berry's favourite backing band, the man who wrote Mr. Bojangles, a future member of Poco, a band featuring the young Bruce Cockburn, and a whole lot more besides.

Come with us along The Golden Road, let your mind wander free and let your freak flag fly.
