Lazy Smoke - Corridor Of Faces (1968)

Drifting melodic Beatlesque psych. like if "Rubber Soul" had all the "Sgt. Pepper's..." studio tricks and Lennon handled all the vocals. backwards guitar, floating vocals, churchy organ, and haunting lyrics about romance and regret. The two surviving members released an album of newly recorded acidic folk in 1996 on the Pondicherry label, titled "Pictures In The Smoke". [RM] Acid Archives
Legendary Beatles like psychedelia from Massachusetts. Haunting vocals, backwards guitar (and drums), feedback and various other studio trickery combine in a pot-pourri of inventive psych songwriting and musicianship. Freak Emporium

What is the password for Cathedral's Stained Glass Stories, please? I've tried all sorts of variants (slash at the end, no http:// beforehand, etc.) and nothing seems to work.

Makes for a nice psych-era Beatles alternative for those relaxing nights at home!

Cheers :)
