A platter of hallucinatory spices from various Indian artists. As a follow up to their other guitar-centric odyssey's, Psych-Funk 103: Sa-Re-Ga! Psychedelic Funk India spans through the 70's until '83. It's full of tripped out guitars, super tight drums and raw vocals and horns. Out on CD from World Psychedelic Funk Classics.

Jesus H. Corbett that is one hell of a long title. I felt like I'd gone into the future after typing it out. It was a fairly tedious typing session that almost rendered rational thought impossible and enthusiasm drained from me like blood from a mouses face when he realises that the succulent piece of cheddar he has just stuffed into his little face has been tampered with by "Dodgy" Bob Mcscroggins -the worlds most violent holiday rep, who also takes pleasure in "doing mice an injustice". When I actually listened to the record it removed all the cobwebs from my tired little mind. It's a musical journey which spans 13 years and 20 tracks of unrelenting psychedelic quality. Coming from the same label that brought you the fantastic Psych-Funk 101 and the also fantastic Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas. These 20 glorious Psych-Funk masterpieces sound amazing and the record (which will be released on vinyl at some point) comes with a deluxe 52 page booklet with Detailed Annotation PLUS never before seen photos and Ephemera. It's a heady brew which should be drunk straight down into your Rudd Gussett (gullet) it's that good!
The mighty R.D Burman has four tracks which are taken from Bollywood blockbusters and these tracks set the bar pretty high. Luckily the rest of the tracks are equally amazing so that means you are in for a diverse psychedelic feast. The production of the tracks is ace, the songs are curious and alluring and the whole thing is just such a good listen you must welcome this album over your doorstep. A quality slab of wonder from a label that can hardly put a foot wrong. Sweet.

The 3rd installment in a bloody brilliant series that has compiled psychedelic funk from around the world. This lesson focuses on the Indian front of the world funk alliance. Its superb, as with pevious lessons, this comes complete with in depth notes and pictures, but it is really all about the superb music. Fans of Madlib will recognise at least one track. Not gonna spoil it, but those that dug Jaylib will be in for a treat. This is more than just sample spotting though. 20 tracks of really superb indian flavoured funk, with a dose of rock, a little bollywood flair and a fair bit of that psyche that has been the thread than runs through this series. Exceptional stuff.
