Various Artists – The Psychedelic Years Vol.9

It’s the ninth month so it means that it must be time for another Psych compilation. As per usual, there are a number of famous artists including Fairport Convention (who were the British answer to The Jefferson Airplane at this point and not the folk rock band they would become) The Hollies, The Yardbirds and The Spencer Davis Group (even though by the time these tracks were recorded, Steve Winwood had left The Spencer Davis Group and they were not as successful after his departure). There are some artists who would become more famous later on including Graham Gouldman (he’d already written hits such as Bus Stop and For Your Love but he would find success as an artist in this own right as a member of 10cc) and Robert Palmer (then with The Alan Bown! but would find greater success with Vinegar Joe and as a solo artist). There is also a considerable number of artists who have only found success on compilations released many years after the event.
