Gulliver's Travels - Gulliver's Travels (1969 uk rock psych exp)
This album is a significant collectible, though probably not worthy of such status. It's a real hodgepodge of short snippets from the Immediate record label stable of recordings, assembled by label owner Oldham in 1968 as a sort of musical interpretation of J. Swift's famous tome. There are some lengthier tracks separated by these short, image building excerpts, some used as tape loops similar to The Dreamies album. Overall, I would probably rate the album a failure in regards to it's original intent. But there are a few interesting portions to investigate. It should be noted that the track list accompanying this entry is taken from the disc label as it appears there. However, there are six distinct bands on side 1, and eight on side 2. Also, though the album uses snippets from The Small Faces singles here and there, they also recorded some special mat'l specifically for this album. Grades - 1 A-, 1 B+, 2 C+'s, and 1 C-.
