Chapter 73: East West

American & Thai psychedelic rock

Did you know Thailand has an amazing psychedelic rock scene? You do now. A handful of tart Thai picks spice up this nervy psych-rock collection. Energizer Bunny beats power tight riffs from Los Bravos and The Seeds into oblivion. Roky Erickson makes Dylan’s “Baby Blue” even bluer with a majestically numb take. And how could I resist a guitar journey from the Paul Butterfield Blues Band to close things out, especially with that on-the-nose name?
