Complete recordings (1969-1974) of legendary U.S. acid-punk band Unsettled Society, famous for appearing on the seminal psych compilation Endless Journey back in the '80s. But Unsettled Society have been a total mystery until now. The band came from the New York suburbs and were famous locally for their powerful stage shows, full of strobe and psychedelic flashing lights. In 1969 they released their first 45 for the Charm label: "17 Diamond Studded Cadillacs," which is pure acid-psych, lo-fi basement insanity. It was coupled with "Passion Seeds," a killer moody, atmospheric psych ballad. Between 1972 and 1974 they released two more 45s in a fantastic heavy psych vein, the last one recorded under the Thunder Head name. All of them are included here with sound taken from the original tapes. Includes a fold-out insert with lots of amazing unseen photos and detailed liner notes by Charm Records boss Pete Huntley.
