A hidden psych classic from the late Mike Condello is lovingly reissued by US indie Sundazed. Fizzing with late ‘60s guitar god venom, Phase 1 is an enjoyable adventure down a prog-tinged road. Throw a wandering bassline in with a wah-treated guitar and a Rhodes organ and you get the idea. Out on mono vinyl from Sundazed.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 8th July 2016
Condello's Phase 1 LP from 1968 is one of my favourite forgotten (or overlooked) gems of psychedelic rock. The album opens with three flat-out brilliant pop-psych songs with tinges of folk. Opening track "Crystal Clear" is a beautiful mellow pop-tune with a great Moby Grape vibe. If you're looking for a dynamic, well-written, well-played, and often brilliant piece of lost psychedelic rock (with the true gems being the album's more pop-psych oriented material), then this album will bring you much enjoyment.
