History's forgotten psych bands come ten a penny, but when they were as impressive as Neon Pearl, they deserve to be remembered. As a self-titled offering, this eight-track expedition contains rare and remastered studio recordings from 1967 and 1968. Crossing wires with the likes of The Zombies and Tomorrow - it's a hidden gem.
