this ace compilation delves into the influence of Western bands on indian psychedelia, resulting in a rhythmic, enjoyable album that flows surprisingly well for a compilation.

On this mind-expanding Rough Guide, hallucinatory sounds drift in & out of drones & ragas, ranging from the lysergic sitar of Ananda Shankar & trippy Bollywood vibes of the 1970s to more recent concoctions by Sunday Driver & The Bombay Royale. there are also clear western influences on the prominence of bass & spidery guitar lines.
