This review is from: Psychedelic Jumble Vol.1: What's the Rush Time Machine Man? (Audio CD):
What a top compilation of magic gems on this 1 CD. I ordered this album knowing that it will be a great listen and as soon as it arrived through the letterbox of my front door, I played it. It was what I was looking for in a British psychedelic pop compilation as the songs are rare and probably only feature on this disk. The artists deserve to be listened to. Some songs will always remind you of songs by well known artists (The Who, The Beatles, The Kinks for example), but it ISN'T them.
The sleeve is a bonus with an introduction by Stefen Granados (I assume he compiled the tracks) and a write up on the bands featured. The Majority, Tintern Abbey, Paradox, The Penny Peeps, Honeybus, Opal Butterfly, Five's Company, The Obscured Rays and Rupert's People are all here.
According to Stefen; 'Be warned that Psychedelic Jumble is not always a hi-fi listening experience, given that all but one of these were rescued from well worn crumbling tapes, but through the tireless efforts of sound wizard supreme Nick Robbins, all have been restored to a more than acceptable level of fidelity.' In other words, they are great songs with some slight crackle and hiss amongst the sound (some sound better than others)...I think that is the beauty of it.
If you're a collector of music, especially Psychedelic music, get this album.

Very much enjoying this. It appears the Rupert's People track is truncated.
