Product Details

Most people were introduced to the strange psychedelic sound of The Monocles (later The Higher Elevation) thanks to the inclusion of the bizarre "The Spider & The Fly" and "The Diamond Mine" on the legendary 1979 compilation Pebbles Vol. 3 (the "acid-punk" volume). These youngsters from Colorado formed in 1964 and were famous for driving to gigs in a custom Cadillac hearse. Between 1965 and 1968, they released a bunch of singles for different labels: Chicory, Denco, Liberty... This retrospective collection includes the best of their 45 sides plus some tracks previously unreleased on vinyl. You'll find demented psychsploitation ("The Spider & The Fly," "The Diamond Mine") crude garage-psych ("Psychedelic (That's Where It's At)," "Odyssey"), sunshine-pop/jangly folk-rock ("Summer Skies," "Here Comes Sunshine"), teen garage/frat-rock ("Boogie Man," "You Don't Know"), pop-psych ("Crazy Bicycle"), and more. Includes insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos.
