Modern psychedelia sampler well worth dropping $2 on. Nice mix of psych rock and acid folk, mostly mellow. The place to start for The Active Listener completist.
Favorite track: The Rolling of the Stones.
The 4th of November is the first anniversary of the Active Listener music blog, and to celebrate I've put together a limited edition cassette release of tracks from many artists you will have read about on the blog over the last year and a few from newer names that took my fancy. The digital version is available here.
Many artists have been kind enough to supply exclusive or hard to find tracks in the form of demos, covers, remixes and unreleased songs.
A huge thank you to all artists who contributed tracks. Extra special thanks to Dale Simpson for the amazing job he did with the sleeve art, and Martin Nunez for mastering.

An elegantly artistic psych/folk album that impresses with its heartfelt delivery, musicality and desire to offer something mature in its messaging. These relaxing and yet highly intriguing arrangements provide something for almost any listener of the genre. Michael Reilly

Crystal has improved since I first heard her when she was part of The Honey Pot and this album confirms my faith in her. Good music and a voice many wish they had. As yet I have n favourit track but I will after a few more plays. They are all favourites at the moment COLIN STUART LORIMER
