2014 repress. Subtitled: 82 Rare Flowerings From The British Underground 1965-73. Named in honor of John Peel's 1967 late-night program on pirate radio station Radio London, which Peel named after a 13th century Arabic sex manual, the original 3 volumes of Past & Present's The Perfumed Garden (2003), which many aficionados felt set the benchmark for future compilations, were applauded for the quality of both the content and the sound, but these accolades were often undermined by the lack of information about the tracks and the artists who performed them. This repackaged version of the first 3 volumes, plus 2 additional volumes compiled by a leading expert on British psychedelia, contains a scholarly and informative 52-page booklet, complete with rare photographs and exhaustive liner notes. This is full-on UK garage rock and psychedelia, and every track is a winner. Great sound coupled with 82 fantastic tracks over 5 CDs, 3 featuring the original artwork and the additional discs boasting new artwork, newly-commissioned for this superb box set. Artists include: Factory, Eyes, Syn, Nimrod, Smoke, Birds, Shy Limbs, Game, Frame, Mandrake Paddle Steamer, French Revolution, Vamp, Syndicates, Sands, Tintern Abbey, The Craig, Open Mind, Kult, Eyes, Poets, Ace Kefford Stand, Rupert's People, Thane Russal & Three, Deviants, Fleur-De-Lys, In-Be-Tweens, Uglies, Glen Athens & The Trojans, Gary Leeds & Rain, Les Goths, Drag Set, Accent, Longboatmen, Miller, Shyster, Majority One, Groundhogs, Herbal Mixture, Pete Sully & The Orchard, Adams Recital, Cedars, Wolves, Actress, Reign, Barry Mason, Boeing Duveen, Andwella's Dream, Serendipity, Rupert's, Flies, Joint, Blonde On Blonde, Magic Mixture, Tucky Buzzard, Timebox, Simon's Secret, Please, Orang Utan, Arcadium, Flaming Youth, Monument, Five Day Week, John McLaughlin, Animals, Arzachel, Deviants, July, Pacific Drift, Camel, Bulldog Breed, Wynder K.
