    Burning Red Ivanhoe, Same, 1970, Telefunken D, SLE 14625-P

    Hey, this is something special! From Denmark. One of the first scandinavian progessive bands.Their style was quite original from the start, blending jazz-rock with R&B, blues, psychedelia etc. John Peel under the pseudonym of "Eddie Lee Beppeaux" was producing together with famous bass player Tony Reeves (Greenslade, Mayall, Colosseum). Unique kind of music. Musically, nearly everything was possible in the early seventies. Wonderful times then......

    I don't know what is psychedelic in europe , but many of those that you are posting are NOT psychedelic according to US standards.

    Sure, most have cool covers , but The Byrds , Big Brother, The Animals, BG's ?????

    NOT even close.

    Agreed! The discussion is open: post your typical psychedelic album here!
    This thread is called "Most typical psychedelic album?" The question mark (?) is set on purpose. I consciously intended to start a discussion about the definition of psychedelic rock music and cover art. As example: was the music of "The Moody Blues" in the beginning psychedelic or not? Or the early works of The Byrds, Bee Gees, The New Animals and Big Brother & The Holding Company? Was the cover art by Mati Klarwein psychedlic? He said, that he never painted under drug influence. (Look at the statement at the end of this reply)
    In Europe there is not the same approach to rock music related psychedelia because LSD, Mescalin or Psilocybin had not that huge prevalence and dissemination as in USA (Timothy Leary).
    EU-rock music and art wasn't formed mainly by the use or misuse of psychedelic drugs, but it was strongly influenced by the psychedelic US sounds though LSD was invented in Basel Switzerland by Albert Hofmann in 1943. Europe has not the same drug history as USA. But wasn't rock music in England, France, Italy, Germany and Switzerland strongly influenced by US psychedelic art in the late 60ies? Here is the main cause for the difference between EU and US psychedelia:

    Nachdem in den USA in den 1960er Jahren Timothy Leary den Massenkonsum von LSD propagierte, übte Hofmann starke Kritik. Mit der Substanz müsse vorsichtig umgegangen werden, es handle sich nicht um eine Genussdroge. Als zur gleichen Zeit die CIA zu Forschungszwecken LSD an nicht darüber informierte Versuchspersonen verabreichte (mit einem folgenschweren Todesfall),[8] bezeichnete er diese Vorgehensweise als Verbrechen.[9]https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Hofmann


    Viele vornehmlich aus dem englischsprachigen Raum stammende Undergroundkünstler, Designer, Maler, Schriftsteller und Musiker beriefen sich in Reflexion auf die gegenkulturelle Bewegung der 1960er Jahre, der Beat-Generation und der Hippiebewegung auf psychedelische Erfahrungen und verwandten diese in Wort, Ton und Bild. Die psychedelische bildende Kunst stellt das Pendant zur Psychedelic Rockmusic dar und besitzt maßgeblichen Einfluss auf Grafikdesign und Gestaltung von Postern, Plattencovern und Underground Comix sowie auf Undergroundfilme, Lightshows und Mode.

    Der unter dem Etikett „psychedelischer Künstler“ gehandelte deutsche Maler
    Mati Klarwein, dessen Bild Annonciation von 1962 für das bekannte Album Abraxas von Carlos Santana verwendet wurde, bestritt jemals unter Drogeneinfluss gemalt zu haben.

    Cochise, Swallow Tales, 1971, Liberty UK, LBG 83428

    Well, I suppose you're wondering what a pedal steel guitarist was doing in a psychedelic rock group anyway. The answer, in those far off, laid back days was as simple as ... why not! I have Cochise to thank for my career as a session musician and the reputation I have managed to establish. (cit. B.J. Cole https://procolharum.com/cochise.htm)

    Bokaj Retsiem, Psychedelic Underground, 1968, Gear Fab Comet EU, GFC 409, RI 2000

    Early Krautrock by members of The Rattles and Lucifer's Friend. Read the title of the album backwards*! Surely, in fact its not typically psychedelic, variations about a German "Volkslied"*. German pseudopsychedelic rock. Herbert Hildebrand was the musical "Jack of all trades" in Germany. Listen to this album with a smile and fun. Hey, it's 52 years ago..

    Hapshash And The Coloured Coat, 1967, Akarama Italy, AK204, RI 2002

    "Featuring the human host and the heavy metal kids". No heavy metal at all...
    LSD influenced hubbub or drug abuse implications? Psychedelic Guy Stevens mind-blowing hype.

    Masterpiece or hype? Funny: the snoring in the outro of "My game of loving". One of the most typical psychedelic albums. You must love it...
