Share songs from your favorite Psychedelic Rock bands of the 60s, 70s and beyond.
I'll start with a few offerings from my favorite Psychedelic band, Hawkwind. Up first is Magnu, from the album Warrior at the Edge of Time:
Next are two back to back tracks from the same album, Assault & Battery and the Golden Void:
Now up are my two favorite tracks from Hawkwind's live version of their Chronicle of the Black Sword album, Moonglum (Friend Without a Reason) and Zarozinia:
I'll finish up this post with the Hawkwind track 5th Second of Forever, from the album Levitation:
What are your favorites?

I have trouble identifying what is and isn't technically in this genre. Tons of music can be said to be psychedelic in one way or another. The first thing I thought of was Uriah Heep...but maybe they are more prog-rock.
I have the album Wizards and Demons on vinyl.
Uriah Heep - The Wizard
Uriah Heep - Traveler in Time
Uriah Heep - Look At Yourself
(The images shown in some of those videos leads me to believe that atleast somebody finds Uriah Heep to be psychedelic. :D)
Jefferson Airplaine - White Rabbit
Cream (the original power trio) - Tales of Brave Ulysses
Look at young Eric Clapton, hilarious.
Syd Barret years...
Pink Floyd - Arnold Layne
Pink Floyd - Astronomy Domine

Strawberry Alarm Clock: Incense and Peppermints
Jefferson Airplane: White Rabbit/Somebody to Love
Bear with me. I'm "old" (so says my eldest daughter), so, these may or may not fit he genre. :rolleyes:;)

Is there any other? :cool:
I actually prefer the Dead's country/folk/Americana music but back in the day, it was fun to trip out a little to some Dark Star-->St. Stephen-->The Eleven. ;)
Best. American. Band. Ever. Period.

My favourite Grateful Dead song ever.
An excellent choice! Bobby Weir at his finest and a nice Youtube vid also. :thumb001:
This clip if from the Grateful Dead Movie and was filmed in October of 1974 right before their year long hiatus from touring.
Gotta love that Wall of Sound they lugged around in '73 & '74.
The funny thing about Deadheads was/is while they by and large espouse 'diversity' they don't even realize how racially tribal they are/were.
Believe me, I know--there are loads of old hippys here in Vermont and they are very 'Nordish' in phenotype on the whole.

The Doors - Light My Fire
A member of a Guns n' Roses wannabe band who had long aquanet hair, wore red leather pants and a leather jacket, and lived in his mother's basement once told me a theory he had about Jim Morrison. He noted that Jim got continuously bigger, fatter, and hairier as his career progressed. It was this guy's belief that Jim Morrison did not in fact die of a heroin overdose but that he had actually gone mad and now is often mistaken for bigfoot when people catch chance glimpses of him running about in the forests.
The Rolling Stones - 2000 Light Years From Home
The Beatles - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
The Beatles - Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite
The Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever
The Beatles - I Am Walrus
Love that video.
Cream - Strange Brew
YES - Roundabout
I couldn't find any studio recordings of YES on Youtube.
Haha, I actually found a 1998 YES performance that must have been aired on a Spanish speaking network. Their translation of "Long Distance Runaround" is "Corriendo una larga distancia en circulos" which means "Running a long distance in circles". I'll spare you the video and song though...it's a horrible performance.
