All Kinds of Highs: Mainstream Pop-Psych 1966-1970 [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import, 2PC)
UK two CD collection. Mainstream Records' notable dalliance with Psychedelic Rock and Pop is celebrated in exhaustive fashion with All Kinds of Highs: A Mainstream Pop-Psych Compendium 1966-1970. Though best known as a Jazz and soundtrack label, in the late 1960s head honcho Bob Shad dove into the Rock market with a vengeance, conducting a remarkable and seemingly never ending A&R odyssey across America in search of talent. Only a couple of the several dozen acts Shad signed at the time, such as the Amboy Dukes, would ever see chart success, but Mainstream's efforts by the likes of the Tiffany Shade, Jelly Bean Bandits, Orient Express and Tangerine Zoo are now coveted collector artifacts. All Kinds of Highs selects the best cuts from the cream of the psychedelic pop albums in the catalog, and adds appropriate singles only tracks from Mainstream and associated label Brent. Ace Deluxe.
