After listening to what Necromancer and Big3 posted, these two bands sprang to mind. Neither are mentioned much in England; my apologies if they are well-known in the US or elsewhere:-

Circus Maximus - "Wind" (1967) - YouTube
The noted country singer and songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker was the founder of Circus Maximus before he "went country" in the early Seventies. Another country singer Kenny Rodgers began his career in the psychedelic band First Edition. Rodgers is the singer on the psychedelic classic Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In), which is about a bad acid trip.

One of my favorite psychedelic bands was the Chicago area band Aorta, . Aorta was an obscure band with a two year lifespan (1969-1970) and it's members were later linked to better known Chicago area bands like Rotary Connection, Illinois Speed Press, and New Colony Six. Peter Cetera who later became the vocalist on the first Chicago Transit Authority album, also did a short stint in Aorta. I was acquainted with Jim Dolinger, Aorta's lead guitarist who was one of the better psychedelic guitarists in the Midwest in the late Sixties. Aorta's music has stood the test of time a lot better than many of the bigger name psychedelic bands of that era.

The two YouTube selections are from Aorta's self titled 1969 debut album. By today's standards, their music sounds like prog rock, but there was no such musical category as prog rock back then. You either played psychedelic music for hippie underground FM radio stations, or you played Top Forty AM radio pop music for squares.

There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.

There was a band called "Plex" that I saw in Sugar Bush Wisconsin back in the late 90's. They were a pschedelic type band, with a great lead guitar player. I can't find a dam thing about em anywhere though.

I never hear much about these bands but they're both great.

The Sorrows are Garage/Freakbeat/Rhythm & Blues. The album Take a Heart is excellent. Maybe they're relatively unknown because it was their only album. I really should get more stuff in this style, I like their dark edge.

Tages are a Swedish band often referred to in their day as The Swedish Beatles. Studio is a fantastic and rather upbeat album most akin to the earlier Beatles sound, a little bit like early Bee Gees as well. Contrast has a bit more mature sound, strange since it came out first. Unfortunately I can't find any videos from that album on YouTube.

Default Cactus

How about Cactus? They started
in 1970 and had three albums
with the original lineup of
Camen Appice, Tim Bogert from
Vanilla Fudge, Vocalist Rusty day from the Amboy Dukes and the
exellent guitarist Jim McCarty from
Mitch Rider.
They were a great band. Heavy
and rocking.
I'd like to post a youtube link
but aren't allowed to yet.
link removed by mod, please read our rules regarding signature links.
