Hell Preachers Inc. - Supreme Psychedelic Underground (USA, 1968)

A very rare record from 1968. Hell Preachers seems to me like a band which is formed just for this project. They don't have any recording except this LP. But also there are some rumours around which say that the whole album has been recorded by Deep Purple (band members: Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice, Jon Lord) ; but it's just a rumour, so I'm not sure. And I didn't know anything else about this magnificient psychedelic album...The music is great, that's certain! Enjoy!

Erkin Koray - Elektronik Turkuler (Turkey, 1974)

One of my favourite records...The best album of the turkish progressive rock pioneer Erkin Koray...I will always see him as a soul brother of Frank Zappa. He's still alive and still weird. For more information and amazing record covers, please go to
