I came across the Ozrics in the early 90s when they first broke through into the semi-mainstream. I had their first couple of CD albums but never really kept up with their newer releases. A couple of years ago I decided to check back in. What a treat! They never stopped. Die-hard acid-rockers.

Love Ozrics but doing an A/B comparison of the originals and the Ed Wynne remasters (Digital versions, not vinyl) was extremely disappointing. Drums muffled on most except Strangeitude. Sounds almost like everything was remastered from old cassettes; maybe they were since I think the actual masters burned up in Ed's house fire. Was going to but the new Vitamin Enhanced but definitely won't now.

How has this band flew under my radar for so many years? Very glad their CDs and vinyl are getting re-issued, already snagged quite a good collection so far! Great space rock music, very much recommended to anyone who enjoys other psychedelic-sounding music like Shpongle.

Strangely , in the credits for Tantric Obstacles, Ben Smith co wrote Shards of Ice, and I can;t find no other mention of him. Any clues guys ?

Somerset & England's finest. I'm so glad that they've reissued their brilliant back catalogue on vinyl, it was the right thing to do for this legendary, crusty, genius band. =)

How do I get some of the MP3/FLAC albums listed here? I've never found a source for them. Are they different to regular albums, content wise? Anybody help? Thanks.

What are the chances of tracking down and digitising the cassettes they would get blank from fans, fill with music and send back to them. Wonder how many they did.

Been listening to Ozrics for over 25 years now they are that good. Every time i have seen them live which was back in the 90's the venue was full of people sitting down, skinning up and smoking.
I have the entire collection of cd's plus a few bootlegs not even listed on here. Ozrics for me are for me a band that drew a large following from The New age scene in the late 80's early 90's as well as prog rock, techno, trance fans and of cause Crusty's.
Not everyone's cup of tea i know but for me Ozrics are and always will be a cup of mushroom tea. Peace and love to all Ozric fans everywhere
