important west coast psych albums

the most important artifacts of the short lived psychedelic era around the bay era in the late 60s
1Country Joe and The Fish
Electric Music for the Mind and Body


probably the best record on this list, absolute classic and laid down the framework for psychedelic rock
2Jefferson Airplane
After Bathing at Baxter's


thought I would pick surrealistic pillow right? nope, while there are defining tracks on there, this entire album is deeply fried and a much more definitive statement
3Grateful Dead
Anthem of the Sun


highly experimental and surreal. this one is infamous for being so out there, they spooked their producer away and they got even deeper into the weirdness. when the dead was cutting edge and at their best
4Quicksilver Messenger Service
Quicksilver Messenger Service


an astounding record, quintessential psych and some early roots of prog on here too. probably the best band out of haight ashbury
5Big Brother And The Holding Company
Cheap Thrills


Janis Joplin at her absolute peak! a real screamer this one, so much energy
6Santana
Santana


while a little late to the scene, the splash they made at Woodstock blew them up deservedly so. the african and latin rhythms really make them stand out
7Blue Cheer
Vincebus Eruptum


arguably the very beginning of heavy metal starts with this record. completely blown out, obliterated, fried beyond recognition, a jaw dropper
8Fifty Foot Hose
Cauldron


super underrated band who never got noticed outside of frisco. combined the fuzzed out acid rock with avant garde homemade electronics
9The Charlatans
Charlatans


the first band of the west coast scene, they recorded their album too late though and so are forgotten by time
10Moby Grape
Moby Grape


on the list cause the band was important to the era, but this record is not very psychedelic
11Steve Miller Band
Children of the Future


the first side of this is fantastic, with early prog leanings almost like pink floyd after syd left. the second side becomes more grounded blues rock though
