I have no idea what to write about this album. It's psychedelic, yay! One of the first psychedelic rock albums, and probably the first that said it so implicitly in its title. I believe that when you were young in the sixties / seventies, this music must have been quite something, but nowadays it doesn't surprise that much anymore. A slight overdose of psychedelic sounds, I presume. Nowadays, it must be mixed with eastern sounds, african rhythms or heavy electronic beats to be noticed. Times change.
I have nothing against psychedelic music, in contrary, most of the time I like it, but it has a well known recipe. The music should have a very "open" sound (can't translate my Dutch "weids", I'm sorry), there must be some strange instruments, and the singer should have a particular voice (best example: Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane). …

Only this is not just any cassette player/recorder, it's a boombox that can record from CD AND radio. I bought it and left with about $.30 left in my checking account. Phew, that was a tough week.

But if it's true hopfully this means that soon I will no longer be the only listener of Los #3 Dinners on last.fm.
Anyway, last night I bought both of Los #3 Dinner's CDs. One of them contains a cover of "Roller Coaster" by 13th Floor Elevators. That's pretty awesome, seeing how Spoon has done a cover of the same song. Now I can relate Los #3 Dinners to Spoon! And they said it couldn't be done!
