While I'm in an obscure late 1960's psych-rock groove, let me present one album wonders Mephistopheles, who produced but the single album "In Frustration I Hear Singing".....this is a so-so effort for the era, not one of the hard rocking, metalic-psych albums of that era which I enjoy so much, but more along the stranger, hippie-psych which was more prevelant at the time.

Some decent fuzz guitar and drum rolls here and there give it psych-cred, and there are so fair to solid songs: The title track, "Take a Jet", "Vagabond Queen", "Collections".....pure period piece, for my dough there is an AWFUL song here, just not a true standout, either......commectors of 60's psych raritites (ie if you grabbed "Bananamoon") this is one more for your stash. Not bad, and likely something you havent heard before.
