Favorite Albums for the Mind
    #1062507 - 11/18/02 02:12 PM (14 years, 19 days ago)

Just thought I'd see what everyone else is into, so why not recommend a couple of cds that you love :smile:

N'Existpas by Daevid Allen (founder member of both Soft Machine and Gong) from 1978 is a very unique experience, definately burrows into your mind while tripping, there's a spacey undercurrent throughout, but a sense of humor too. Definately recommended. There's an ominous quality throughout it that really plays with your brain when you're under the influence.

Zeit - Tangerine Dream  ..  Maybe their best, very spacey, but not with the repetitive synth lines characteristic of their later stuff (this is '73, i think). Classic 'head' music.

Is it all you want it to be?

Im not sure of my favorite album 'for the mind'. I guess all music is sorta for the mind. Here's a couple I like: Modest Mouse - The Moon and Antartica and Dead can dance - Spiritchaser.

I have only heard one song by Forest for the Trees, called Dream...

I like it alot, especially the Lyrics....

The writer (worked with Beck for a bit I believe)
believed the lyrics to this album would drive people crazy and insane... He himself stayed in a mental institute for a few years before deciding he was ok and could release his album...

I want to find the rest./.
Good stuff ;D

"When I am dreaming I don't know if I'm truly asleep or if I'm awake
and When I get up I don't know if I'm truly awake or if I'm still dreaming....
Dream, Dream, Dream, Dream..... Life is but a dream..."

"Traveling the waves of an infinite ocean, I feel the deepest emotion. I see a shadow of reality, please hold me closely, and take me away"

Good shit!

Yeah ! I used to be the proud owner of a vinyl copy of N'existpas. Just to be sure: did it have a song about tavern philosophers? I remember really diggin that album --moreso than Banana Moon. Tangerine Dream are cool. Let me think ... ya' know Good Morning Story by Holger Czukay is pretty trippy. Today I decided I need to start record buying again. I'm not inclined to get free stuff off the net like some people I know. I want to get some George Harrison and some t-rex. I really don't have any favorite tripping records.

Depends on what you mean by "for the mind".

Boards of Canada ("music has the right..." and "in a beautiful place...") are probably my favourite for just washing my brain in colour.

"Blonde on Blonde" by Bob Dylan makes me think (the lyrics... probably the greatest ever?).

Unfortunately I don't know what I did with my copy.  I couldn't have traded it cuz it's been missed for so long :frown:.  I barely remember what it sounds like.  All I can remember right now is a groovy sax.  I probably paid $5 for that copy mint.  I have some other Daevid Allen -such as Good Morning (w/Euterpe) that is pretty neat but not as trippy.  I'm listening to Good Morning Story by Czukay right now.  It's trippy.    :grin:  Got some weird electronic cavernous eastern yodeling going on among other things.  How about Psychic T.V. ?  I've been searching for a particular song of their's I heard once but can't tell ya the name of.  It was very retro --like fifties rock almost.

I can't remeber exactly where I picked up my copy of N'Existpas (and yeah, there's a song called 'Basically Bar Room Philosophers'), but I think it was off the net somewhere. The sax is great on it, and excellent drumming too by Chris Cutler (Henry Cow and a million other things). The long track is great for spacing to - 'Non-God Must Not Go On'...'From Hashish To Ashes' with the bagpipes...I love 'It's a Fine Air for Fliss' too, really has that ominous undercurrent that kind of reminds me of the kinda anxious undercurrent i experience when tripping. I saw Gong on their 25th anniversary tour a couple years ago, they were way better than I expected, extrememly tight,,daevid looks the part of the mystic sage to a T :laugh:

Yeah, Blonde On Blonde does have great lyrics, set against some pretty stark music which fits it just right......'The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her faaaaace'...

Yeah 'Non-God must go on' rings a bell. I seem to recall liking that one. Listening to 'You' right now. I heard 'You Remixed' --a compilation of techno artists/tribute to Gong I believe, or maybe Daevid had a hand in it I don't know. Very good!

'You' is a good one, i like the extended jams on parts of it. Picked up 'Fish Rising' by Hillfish a while back, hadn't heard it in a loooong time, pretty good one too. Ever check out Wayside Records? They have a load of great cds, lots of stuff that's really hard to find.

That's another one I used to own. Can't say I was into it but I remember the cool sleeve. I have Rainbow Dome Music which is pretty good and the Hillage album with that stupid picture on the sleeve --Motivation Radio I think. No I'm not familiar with that label. I can give you this person's address though: Jade Hubertz 111 N. Sheridan Av. Indianapolis, Indiana 46219-6123 He (or she) has a great selection of psychedelic cds. They will mail you a catalog. I have had mine for 3 years now and still havn't ordered --always too broke. Their prices are reasonable --10-20 bucks on average. they didn't have N'Existpas as of 2000 though.
Steve Hillage is rad.
