Most people were introduced to the bizarre psychedelic sound of The Monocles (later The Higher Elevation) thanks to the inclusion of the bizarre 'The Spider & The Fly' and 'The Diamond Mine' on the legendary third volume of 'Pebbles' (the "acid-punk" volume). These youngsters from Colorado formed in 1964 and they were famous for driving to gigs in a custom Cadillac hearse. Between 1965 and 1968, they released a bunch of singles for labels s.a. Chicory, Denco, Liberty. This retrospective collection includes the best of their 45 sides, plus some tracks that are previously unreleased on vinyl. You'll find demented psychsploitation ('The Spider And The Fly', 'The Diamond Mine'), crude garage-psych, sunshine-pop and jangly folk-rock, teen garage and frat-rock, pop-psych and more. This essential LP includes an insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos.
