The fourth volume of Wooden Hill’s acclaimed series of unreleased-at-the-time British psychedelic pop artefacts, Psychedelic Schlemiels 4 gathers up twenty acetates, demos and private recordings from the soft white underbelly of the late 1960s group scene.

Major discoveries this time around include a live-from-Swedish TV track from legendary London underground club band Jade Hexagram, two unreleased recordings from Bulldog Breed and a near-seven minute acetate-only version of Jason Crest’s much-loved ‘Black Mass’.

With fascinating unreleased material by Velvet Underground/Nico-loving Surrey teens the Velvet Frogs, High Wycombe underground warriors Respect and songwriter David Matthews (the man who wrote Matt Monro’s countercultural anthem ‘We’re Gonna Change The World’), Psychedelic Schlemiels 4 is another essential purchase for all admirers of vintage British psych-pop.
