V.A. – MYSTIC MALES 2 (Pet) LP

It’s been almost ten years since Pet launched the first volume of this series (reviewed in UT#23) documenting some of the lesser-known “tripped-out troubadours” of the late ‘60s, those soul searching singer-songwriters who delved into the more psychedelic side of the sound spectrum.

The thirteen tracks here all first-rate specimens of the genre, most of them painfully obscure to all but the most seasoned collectors. For example, Tyree Forrest’s “Four Robins Singing,” a haunting sitar-spiced number originally released as a single on the unknown MOC label, and Shalynn’s “Flower Song,” a droning Seeds-flavored piece originally released in 1977, though apparently recorded in ’68. The mesmerizing, effects-laden “Tea Gardens” is a rare 45-only cut by Canadian Art Gee, better known to private press loner psych collectors as Arthur Gee, while the excellent “How Much Do I Love You” by Darrius (two r’s) turns out to be a non-LP cut by Darius, whose 1968 LP is also highly recommended.

Among the better known names, Dick St John (of Dick & Dee Dee fame) gives a bat shit intense performance on the Hoyt Axton-hatched “Lady of the Burning Green Jade,” while ex-Third Bardo front man Jeff Monn taps into his mystical side on the moodily hushed “My Good Woman” from his excellent Vanguard album, Reality. Other highlights include Paul Stoop’s melodic “Daydream,” Gerry Pond’s Donovan-esque “Sometime Girl,” and Malcolm Mitchell’s suitably delicate “Feather.”
Concise but informative track by track liner notes (on the insert) and an attractive full-color cover seal the deal. (MS)
