"Tinkerbell's Mind" is one of those idiosyncratic psychedelic pop ditties that you find on one of those compilations of lost 60s English Psychedelic pop. Its a cool track with lyrics that generate a smirk and some nice psych guitar. The other 8 tracks that made up the original album from 1968 are also a good listen and although not essential, are certainly entertaining and enjoyable. Very British, quintessential psychedelic pop. The rest of this extended set is a mixed bag of stuff but has some worthwhile tracks.
Rating 2.5/5.
