Stack - Above All (USA 1969)

An Uncle Roddus Album Review

More obscure psych rock from the US with this ultra rare sole LP from Stack, an above average Psych/acid rock outfit from Los Angeles. Re issued on CD in 1999, it is still available online and definitely worth checking out if you are into this sort of thing. Kicks off with a good version of the classic "Poison Ivy", "Da Blues" is a cool slab of acid blues that could only come from the late 60's and the highlight of this set is the awesome "Everyday", which is so good that I put it on one of my Roddus samplers some time back, a Classic of  underground late 60s rock. Blue Cher is another reference point for the music on this release and overall it is a fine release of it's genre. Rating 3.5/5
