Fifth Flight – Into Smoke Tree Village (1970 us, psychedelic pop and some folk drops - MP3 320k and FLAC)

Century Records was a late 60's early 70's Californian custom record label which pressed tens of thousands of small-run records for schools, church groups and obscure local bands.

This was one of those delightful garage/psych jewels that occasionally cropped up on the label. With its rustic mill cover this a a garage psych album consisting mostly of covers, delivered with lashings of fuzz guitar and heavy, spooky organ.

The stand-out track surely is the jaw droppingly awesome cover of Neil Young's "Sugar mountain". The CD is now out of print
