Various Artists - Mind Expanders Vol.2.(60's-70's universal, instrumental, kinetic bombastic multi freaked up outer spacial groove)

Vol 2 of the Mindexpanders series brings you more of the rarest, most funky, weird and downright excellent tracks in existence. It’s an intriguing CD, and undoubtedly one that will encourage collectors & creators alike to explore the lost world of strange recordings. 

Another great set of rare tunes from the ‘70s - a mother lode of cuts with lots of strings, fuzzed out guitars, sexy eastern-esque tabla-clarinet duets, sitar, Hammond organs and even steel drums. Cover tune award on this one goes to The Soulful Strings for their sitared and feathered version of the Beatles Within You Without You. This album is a must for fans of Vampyros Lesbos and sundry other erotic soundtracks, as well as just general musical weirdness!
