ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Digging deep in the archives, we find “Complete BBC Sessions 1967-1968,” a phenomenal album that came out on October 12, 1988. This album features 24 cuts the group did for the BBC, which is always exciting for fans of any British rock band as everyone knows the BBC produces some amazing music. Wish we had something like it in the United States back in the 1960s and 1970s. We hope you will seek this seminal psychedelic British band’s album out as you will indeed enjoy it. We thank you for giving it a listen…
