MONOCLES & HIGHER ELEVATION - The spider, the fly and the boogie

Most people were introduced to the bizarre 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 Pebbles Vol. 3 (the "acid- punk" volume). These youngsters from Colorado formed in 1964 and they 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 previously unreleased on vinyl tracks. You'll find demented psychsploitation ("The spider and 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. Insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos. "Hailing from Greeley, CO, the Monocles served as an unwitting example of the strange effect LSD had on America's youth during the mid- to late 1960s. Early on, the Monocles started out as a fairly ordinary pop- rock outfit. Then in mid- 1966 the Monocles began to change; they cut a tune called "Psychedelic (That's Where It's At)" that led to some truly bent sessions later on, most notably the twisted psychodramas of "The Spider and the Fly, " "The Boogie Man, " and "The Diamond Mine" (the theme song for Dave Diamond's Los Angeles radio show)." - Mark Deming ( Tracklist: Side 1 Psychedelic (That's Where It's At) (The Monocles) 1966 Boogie Man (The Monocles) 1966 Crazy Bicycle (The Higher Elevation) 1967 Summer Skies (The Higher Elevation) 1968 You Don't Know (The Monocles) 1965 Thoughts Of Lila (The Higher Elevation) 1967 Country Club Affair (The Higher Elevation) 1968 Odyssey (The Higher Elevation) 1968 The Spider & The Fly (The Monocles) 1967 Side 2 The Diamond Mine (The Higher Elevation) 1967 What Is It (The Monocles) 1965 Treat me Nice (The Monocles) 1965 Highway 101 (The Higher Elevation) 1968 Here Comes Sunshine (The Higher Elevation) 1967 Heartbreak Hill (The Monocles) 1965 Where Is My Life (The Monocles) 1965 Psychedelic (That's Where It's At) (Instrumental) (The Monocles) 1966 Boogie Man (Alternate Version) (The Monocles) 1966
