Psychadelic Rock always makes me feel so positive and full of energy. It also makes me wish I lived back in the 60's and that I could relate with the artist. I always wonder what goes through their head when they write the stuff that they do.

Exactly, sometimes I wish I was alive when this musical renaissance was going on.

What to you is the quintesential psychadelic song?

To me it's Light My Fire, earthy lyrics with long improvised solos and trippy vocals, either that or Voodoo Child (Slight Return) for its wah and the solos and just pure hendrixian quality of it.
#10
I'd have to say, the quintessential Psychedelic rock song, White Rabbit- Jefferson Airplane, just because its one of the more recognized psychedelic songs, and it pretty much describes an era. not to mention its a ****in great song

T. Rex

T.Rex is anything but 60s rock
maybe it's Tyrannosaurus Rex that you're talking about

apart from the bands mentioned above.

heard about bands like 13th Floor Elevators, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Country Joe and the Fish or Spirit? They're pretty damned good.

And it's a crime if bands like Beatles, Who and Rollings are not mentioned when it comes to psychedelic

For me, I'm more of a fan of the San Fransisco psychedelic bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Jefferson Airplane, and Quicksilver Messenger Service.

Of course, there is no denying that, as rx_eb stated, British rock bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who definitely had some psychedelic influences in their songs, but of course the Syd Barret era of Pink Floyd was one of the best British psychedelic bands.

I also enjoy bands such as The Doors, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and of course, Traffic.

I've listened to many other psychedelic bands, including Iron Butterfly and Spirit, and have heard many individual songs from numerous garage psychedelic bands from the 60s on the box set Nuggets.

rx_eb, I've only heard one song by Country Joe and the Fish (I've heard Country Joe's "Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die Rag, but that's only performed by Country Joe), and that was "Rock and Soul Music", and, if you haven't guessed, I saw/hear both of these performances on the Woodstock DVD.

So what are some albums you would recommend by Country Joe and the Fish? I've been reading about the band some recently, but I don't know if they're really worth spending money on or not.

If you can understand its energy and positivity, you can relate to the artist.

They're more 70's space rock, but they do take a fat chunk of inspiration (and... lifestyle choices? ) from the 60's psychedelia.

The Woodstock version of FLIFTDR didn't really impress me. but it's a brilliant song however.

the album 'Electric Music for the Mind and Body' is terrific. I love the album so much I once listened to it for week straight. but that's just me. If you like Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow then 'Electric Music for the Mind and Body' is really worth a listen.

NO!

Thanks for telling me, though, so I won't do that anymore, but because of my serious case of OCD for spelling/grammar, I'll probably correct that word in all of my past posts.

Thanks for the recommendations, too, I really like Surrealistic Pillow, so I'll check out that Country Joe and the Fish album.

It just brought it into pop culture, and the masses.
I belive the first song was The Byrd's, 'Eight Miles High'.
Other than that, I'm not quite sure of the first real album.

Yeah, 'Electric Music for the Mind and Body' is one of their best I think (i also have "c j fish", "i'm feeling like...", "here we are again").

I particulary like the song "not so sweet martha lorraine"

I don't know, I think Surrealistic Pillow brought psychadelia to the masses, due to the popularity of "White Rabbit"

I read an article on the 40th anniversary on Revolver, that magazine claimed it to be the first psychedelic album.

Har har.

I'm actually starting to listen to The Grateful Dead. They seemed like an influential band of the time. I already listen to Pink Floyd, Iron Butterfly, Hendrix, and many more great bands of the era, and I'm just trying to broaden my knowledge of great 60's bands.
#36
^ Listen to some Jefferson Airplane, they were the greatest psychedelic band of their time. Bar none. But also look more into the Dead, i've got quite a bit of their live shows downloaded, but if you want to hear some great dead, go to www.archive.org , they have a whole section dedicated to their live shows.
