Mark Fry - Dreaming With Alice (1972)


Less creepy than B'eirth's 60s psych inspired 'medieval' fragility which denied any real sense of time other than 'the medieval,' pushing The Kinks' and Donovan's timeless pastoral nostalgia to the limit of absolute escapist falseness, Fry's genuine 60s psych (1972, but it sounds that way) boldly touches on that familiar some time other than now simulacrum full with hippie mysticism and unsettling sepia imagery, but goes further to establish itself in time and place with things like raga jams (The Witch and Mandolin Man), popular with psych weirdos of the time
