Psychedelic States: Alabama in the '60s, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stanton Swihart
The second Alabama installment in Gear Fab's fab Psychedelic States series is more of the same, meaning a mixed bag of Clearasil psychedelia and undersexed garage rock, but it skews enticingly more towards the former sort of weirdness this time around than did the original volume. The compilation still has the good but not psychedelic regional hits mixed in with the fourth-rate, mainstream-aping pap unappetizing even as guilty nostalgic pleasures and more than its fair share of decent but not-nearly-as-groovy-as-they-thought filler, which is at least of a quality to elicit a giggle or smile the first two or three times through though that is perhaps one or two more ...

The second Alabama installment in Gear Fab's fab Psychedelic States series is more of the same, meaning a mixed bag of Clearasil psychedelia and undersexed garage rock, but it skews enticingly more towards the former sort of weirdness this time around than did the original volume. The compilation still has the good but not psychedelic regional hits mixed in with the fourth-rate, mainstream-aping pap unappetizing even as guilty nostalgic pleasures and more than its fair share of decent but not-nearly-as-groovy-as-they-thought filler, which is at least of a quality to elicit a giggle or smile the first two or three times through though that is perhaps one or two more spins than the stuff merits. On the other hand, the relatively significant number of oddball, shaggy-dog nuggets makes the collection worth sifting through, starting right out the box with the Chimes' "#38" and its effects pedal-heavy acid blues. The Distortions do a far-out, yowling literally version of the Howlin' Wolf classic "Smokestack Lightning" with some excellent slide guitar work, good enough to get them signed to Mercury. The deliciously named the Outer Mongolian Herd crank out a "Hey Joe" halfway between the Love version of the song and the unhinged nuttiness of "Wooly Bully." And the infectious, harmony-laden "You're Playing With Fire" finds the Male in full-tilt boogie. But perhaps the strangest curiosity, for extra-musical reasons: "Think!!," a 1968 cut by George Wallace Jr. Yes, the son of the infamous governor. And, yeah, it's pretty solid.
