AllMusic Review by

Many, many psychedelic groups were active in Texas in the late '60s. This compilation devotes one side each to two of them, the Lemon Fog and the Nomads, Houston bands that both recorded for the small Orbit label. No, this stuff isn't going to redefine anyone's idea of garage or psychedelic music, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth paying attention to if you like those styles a lot. Each band takes a lot of its cues from Californian psychedelia and folk-rock, the influence of the Doors being especially prominent on a few cuts; others sound something like a garage Buffalo Springfield. These were two different groups, and though they might take offense at the comment, they don't differ from each other much; the Lemon Fog are somewhat heavier.
