Hello All
Here's the next installment of my psych series. There never seems to be a particular theme when putting these things together. But for some reason this volume seems to contain a higher than average quota of top quality psych power pop. Tracks of note are the storming version by Sweet Marriage of the Left Banke's Desiree, The timeless 'Im about to lose my mind' by Airbus. The pop perfection of 'Darlin you can count on me by The Everpresent Fullness'. 

Although my personal favourite is an american homage to the very English pastime of of heavy Cider drinking. 

Thanks for all the kind comments by e-mail. Vol 10 coming shortly.

Thanks to Johnny Laws 'The Disco Farce'. (see you at Cash Converters)

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for another great offering. As with all your previous comps,I find myself digging EVERY track. The cut by Bastille is such a cool opener. I can hear why you like King James & The Royals' "Apple Cider";great energy,great vocal,and cool harmonies. 'Hard for me pick a favorite, but if I had to choose one, it would probably be "I don' want to drive you away"(3's A Crowd).
    Thanks again,

  2. Estupenda recopilacion, los temas bien elegidos,el sonido bueno, cosa de agradecer y la presentacion muy cuidada, los 9 volumenes son muy recomendables.
    A por el Vol. 10!!!!
