Shapes & Shadows - Psychedelic Pop And Other Rare Flavours From The Chapter One Vaults 1968-72

The endless depths of the late 60s/70s psychedelic vaults produce yet another compilation of obscurity, this time from the Chapter One label (no me neither). As usual this is a mixture of the good, the bad and the ugly. The good is pretty good though, i like the soaring vocal of Jason Cord on the epic "Spring never came twice" and The Californians' cover of "You got your troubles" is very decent. March Hare's "cry my heart" is a sweet song with some interesting tempo changes that moves from melancholy to sunny pop in a heartbeat. Sad People's "lonely man" is quite as you might imagine, a reflective organ led pop track.

Nothing else stands out that much though there is plenty of enjoyable music on here, some great bands names too like Tandem and Philwit & Pegasus.
