Long time ago dutch television did an item on the Grateful Dead. VARA TV broadcast an entire episode of their RAPIDO series about the band and their followers. The language is dutch but we are used to subtitles so a lot of the footage is in english too. Please click on the image to watch the video.
The flying pot head pixies got my attention again. While going through the albums on the attic I found this little gem. Never gave it much attention thinking that it was a Gong Compilation album…
But it is actually a 1970 german re-release of the original 1969 album of Daevid Allen and Gilly Smyth with, among others, Didier Malherbe.
It has become quite an collectable item nowadays and i think also because of the nice album cover and artwork of Daevid Allen (see photo’s below).
The top right corner of the frontcover has a cut-out star with the letters “Supergroups” above.
