Fools On The Hill 16: Voices Green & Purple - 19 US acid-punk and soft punk from the mid-60s

Aaaaah Acid punk… it's probably what turned most people on this whole garage thing. All the right ingredients are here, creative compositions, fuzzed-out guitars, reverb-drenched vocals and frequent drug induced lyrics. The first sound effects and snippets make their presence felt. It must have been a good time for guitar pedal manufacturers… But what really sets these songs apart is their attitude: there's none of the hippie, love-in feel in these songs: they're punk! Even what could have been nice ballads are usually snarled across your speakers or recited forlornly in the middle of a bad acid downer.
You'll find plenty of much loved classics in this comp, keep in mind it was meant as an introduction to wild & wacky world of 60's punk.

There you go, enjoy your comp here.
