Quintessential Psychedelia Tribute

This album spans the 60’s with sonorous harmonies akin to Beach Boys ballads like “Pale and Precious” to incredibly psychedelic, Pink Floyd-esque. layered masterpieces like “25 O’Clock”, This album has it all. It was out of print for a decade or more, and I used to scour used CD stores to keep a stack of them on hand at home to give to friends. “you must have this record…” Each song is a gem of work, in homage to an era of music that went from smooth sounds to rocking-out improv. XTC made this record in tribute to the 60’s… enjoy it for what it is. This album is true brilliance.

Just want to clarify that this "album" is actually two albums put together as one, to sell it no doubt. I bought both on casette a million years ago. The first album has 25 o clock and whatnot and to me sounds a bit muddled. The second, and better album was called Psonic Psunspot, and it's my drug.

Recognize them?

I'm sure there are those who would appreciate knowing that the Dukes of Stratosphere are the "alter ego" of the band XTC...
