OK folks, this is really worth a watch!
all of the above are Super Kool - but none are the equal of arguably the Original Psychedelic Album:
Piper At the Gates of Dawn - Pink Floyd
Damn I miss this, goes to show what an old fart I am. My very first rock concert was Genesis at the Felt Forum in Madison Square Garden, 1973. This is Genesis at their best, when Peter Gabriel was the lead singer and Phil Collins was the backup vocalist.
There's so much material, I could do this all day.
Along with the Grateful Dead (the champions when it came to psychedelic music) Traffic was a major player in this genre
So of course was Jerry's buddies Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen, Grace Slick, Jack Cassidy and Marty Balin
Moody blues had a few-this being the prime example IMHO
way ahead of their time. the ultimate cowbell song!
another that is tops in this category
Tripping music: Of course Pink Floyd and Jimmi Hendrix. The Moody Blues were good, and the old Genesis stuff. I was never a Grateful Dead fan, but I loved Phish. In fact, I saw them twice. The second time was not so great, they broke up right after that.
The first time I saw Phish it was Page's birthday and his dad was there. It was in Columbia SC. Amazing show, plus I was tripping balls...LOL
Here is a video of that time frame
Quicksilver deserves a mention here.
And what can be more psychedelic than synesthesia?
Saw them live as a teenager, Lester knocked off a 5th of tequila during the course of the show along with other things he lit and puffed. Appeared utterly unaltered which is telling in and of itself. 'Course, I also saw Rare Earth have to pick up their bongo/conga percussionist, plant him back on his stool, and aim an industrial box fan on him to keep him upright during a show.
It's a matter of personal judgment as to what constitutes "psychedelic" music. The following pieces are more commonly classified as jazz fusion but they are trippy nonetheless.
