Great follow up to the first volume Various - I'm A Freak, Baby... A Journey Through The British Heavy Psych And Hard Rock Underground Scene 1968-72 that came out in 2016.

A ton of very wild n heavy proto-metal, post-psychedelic heavy blues n prog from a varied bunch of hairy UK misfits.
Too many to list here perhaps, but the sub-Sabbath scuzz of Red Dirt, the beserk pre-punk bassy-heavy one-riff Deviants and the terribly un-PC Tear Gas are appealing to me at the moment. And that's just three from disc 2, which I'm enjoying atm.

The missus is trying to work and I keep leaping up, punching the air, adopting a sort of crouched invisible guitar power chord pose and shouting "what about this one?" to her at full blast as I attempt to attract her attention over the pile-driver volume. Just as well we're in lockdown otherwise I could well have ended up on the streets tonight tee hee.

Top notch. Lot a great list gems of heavy music from albums and lost expensive singles if you can find them?
