Dickens, France

Dickens - Royal Incarnation. 1969 President.

One of the rare examples of French psychedelic music. The best songs on the album are sung in French, a language that was still not common for rock music during this period. The atmospheric parts, with the wordless voices, recalls similar era Pink Floyd, and is a highly unusual sound for Continental Europe at this time. About the half the album is English sung punk psych, which was more akin to what was going on in America (Lollipop Shoppe comes to mind here). Judging by the cover, one would presume a psych exploitation album, but it's nothing of the sort. A very rare album, and a good one for archivists to search for.

Priority: none
