If you can find it, this collection of rare psych recordings from around the world is a precious treasure. Collecting artists from Turkey to Peru, Obsession is a rollicking pleasure from beginning to end. Quarteto Nova Era’s ‘De Repente’ and ‘Murituri’ by Arnaud Rodrigues are as good as anything recorded by Os Mutantes. The wah-licking ‘Osman Pehlivan’ by Arif Sag and ‘Hor Gorme Garibi’ by Erkin Koray kick out the Turkish jams motherfucker! Finally, Jean Paul “El Troglodita’s” ‘Everything is Gonna Change’ takes us ever higher with its horn-infused psych-funk freak out. Definitely out there! For adventurous music fans.
Hows about a listen
