AllMusic Review by

Psychedelic Underground 4 is a sampler from reissue label Garden Of Delights, which specializes in lost or forgotten German psych/prog bands from the 1960s and 1970s. This volume features a little less of the ponderous Iron Butterfly feel of the earlier samplers, opting for a more breezy, spacey ambiance, although the sledge hammer gait of Gila's "Viva Arabica" ends up being the most memorable track here simply because of its upfront heavy-handedness. These bands aren't for everybody, but if you think Iron Butterfly going jazz sounds like a cool idea, then you're going to love this.
