Recognized as one of the truly great comps of all time, this 1979 selection of '60s U.S. hard guitar-psych, compiled by the owner of a record shop in Berlin, has often been reissued on CD with the wrong tracklisting and non-existent liner notes. Originally released on LP, only 77 copies were pressed and apart from a few that were given to friends and family, the remaining records were only sold through the compiler's shop or shamelessly bootlegged. Unavailable on either LP or CD for years, the Past & Present label are pleased to make this important compilation available again. This reissue, which stays faithful to the original, comes with an 8-page booklet detailing each of the 18 tracks. Acid Dreams proved that punk rock was not a new thing; kids had adopted the same snotty attitude in the mid-to-late '60s. The opening track, White Light's "William," sets the standard for what's to come: a compulsive, classic, hard guitar-psych 45 rocker and 17 more psych diamonds follow in its wake. A true gem mined and polished by Past & Present. Artists include: White Light, Caretakers Of Deception, Outcasts, The Music Machine, Mystic Tide, Stereo Shoestrings, Velvet Illusions, Unrelated Segments, Beautiful Daze, Painted Faces, Teddy & His Patches, Vejtables, Faine Jade, Balloon Farm, Minds Eye, Zakary Thaks, Remaining Few.
