When The Alarm Clock Rings: A Compendium Of British Psychedelia 1966-1969 / Various

1. Product Details

Limited edition 2LP vinyl compilation of original artefacts from the first British psychedelic era. 30 essential 1966-1969 nuggets from major names and cult acts alike. After 14 years and nearly 150 CD releases, Cherry Red's psychedelic imprint Grapefruit finally produces it's first-ever vinyl issue. A 90-minute, 30-track anthology, 'When The Alarm Clock Rings' is an all-encompassing overview of the late 60s British psychedelic scene. The set features major underground names (Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Blossom Toes, Dantalian's Chariot, John's Children), cult 45s (The Voice, Paper Blitz Tissue, The Syn), future legends (Alex Harvey, Genesis, Greg Lake's early venture The Shame) and pop groups who occasionally turned dayglo (The Merseys, Plastic Penny, Picadilly Line). Limited to 1000 copies and containing Grapefruit's trademark combination of photos and annotation on stylish 12" x 12" inserts, 'When The Alarm Clock Rings' is an essential purchase for vinyl aficionados and a tantalising taster of further plastic platters!
