v/a : acid dreams LP (or 'the return of acid dreams')



i always thank phil todd (of ashtray navigations fame) for discovering this amazing psych / acid punk comp LP. it was a few years ago when in a discussion for LPs in the jewelled antler list did phil drop a line about some fave LPs of his, 'the return of acid dreams' was one of them. without hesitation i asked him to tape it for me and upon receivign the tape i was totally blown into it (having as b-side caetano veloso's 'araca azul' masterpiece too which made the insanity even greater!)

since then i've heard lots of rumours about this compilation, one of which says that a guy who run a record store in berlin issued it in the 80's and so on. since this one a sequel appeared there's also the acid dreams testament (clocks some 75 min as cd), a triple foldout LP too however this one stands as the blow out for me. 've had the 3ple LP (testament cd) but i always feeled they miss the whole intensity of this one, every piece is a little diamond itself making overall a brilliant atmosphere, check it for yourself & enjoy!
