Lost Souls Volume 2 - Garage Psychedelic Rock from Arkansas and Beyond 1965-1971 is the third CD release by Psych of the South, an Arkansas based research project and record label headed by local musician and collector, Harold Ott.
This compilation gathers unheard, unknown, and legendary garage and psychedelic rock from Arkansas and Southeast Missouri in the 1960s. PLUS for the first time the garage punk classic The Modds - Leave My House is sourced directly from a recently discovered reel to reel tape revealing more than ever heard before. The Esquires "Sadie's Ways" is also here from the master tape. It charted #1 in Memphis before getting banned on the radio for suggestive lyrics in 1965!
ALL tracks are sourced from reel to reel tapes recovered from the private collections of the original musicians and studio owners. 15 bands are featured in an extensive 20 page full color booklet including liner notes with details on EVERY band.
The sounds contained within reveal a hidden history of garage and psychedelic music previously unknown to exist. Hear new sounds from the past ranging from primitive garage to heavy psych and beyond. As a result of these discoveries, old bandmates and friends have reunited to discuss and celebrate the music of their past.
The CD is the product of years of research into the garage groups that formed in Arkansas in the wake of the British Invasion. Bands from all over the state formed at this time to make their own records at a handful of local studios.
Psych of the South is dedicated to uncovering the lost 1960s and early 1970s recordings of Arkansas and the surrounding area. Through interviews with original band members, studio owners, and fans, Psych of the South is bringing new life to the sounds of the past with the Lost Souls Volume 2 CD.
