Old Psych doesn't get much better than this, the 1969 self-titled album by Gandalf. Formally known as the Rahgoos, Capital Records made them change their name to Gandalf after signing a record deal in 1967. The album was released with little press and fell into obscurity until it was re-released in 2002. Great swirling psych guitars and organ freak-outs packed into this baby, here's my favorite off the album "Hang On To A Dream"(check out the organ half way through the track) and a few others: "Can You Travel In The Dark Alone," "Golden Earrings," and "Never Too Far." Much love to Wyld Chyld for this treat, you out there furl?
