Inside The Groove

H.P. Lovecraft's first LP album, full in garage/psychedelic moods.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Although their 2nd LP (H.P. Lovecraft II, PHS 600-279) is more highly acclaimed, this 1st LP also is full of good Garage/Psyche moods. Listen to interesting cover versions of “Let's Get Together”, “I've Been Wrong Before”, “That's The Bag I'm In” and more. But the most important track should definitely be “The White Ship”, which made H.P. Lovecraft famous among Garage/Psyche fans.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
