Zen - Hair (1967-71)

This is by request and not my rip. Zen were from Amsterdam/Netherlands and had a total of ten singles and two LP's between 1967-76. This CD contains their first album "Zen" from 1969 and their 7-inches they made during the sixties (and one from 1970 for sure). The music itself is a strong mix of pop and psychedelia. Great stuff!

Tracklist:
- Hair
- Take It
- I've Been Drowned
- You Better Start Running Away From Me
- I Want You
- I'm Tired Again
