Under Milkwood - Selftitled (US Psychedelia 1970)

Reissue of a fantastic Californian psych-based only released in 1969 as test pressing (was planned to be released on A&M label but never came out); it had this real 'west coast' guitarsound like Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape, some folkrock passages ala Fairport Convention but also some exotic hippie atmospheres ala Traffic Sound; great alternate male/female vocals not unlike Balin/Slick but also crystal vocal passages ala Sandy Denny. Underground masterpiece from this mystic folk band out of California.
Recorded in the early 70s, it's never been released & test pressings are collector's items. The singer Clara Miles had a voice similar to Grace Slick, especially on the acoustic tracks. Gatefold sleeve.
