Octopus 4 - Confluents (1969)

This one's by request. The album was once posted by the Mystery Poster blogspot but he won't do re-ups and he gave the permission to share the dead links on other blogs. The bands only recordings (as far as I know) were released in their homeland France as well as in Canada (RCA Victor 740035).

"Oddball tongue-in-cheek organ/guitar "psych" with Beatles/Procol Harum/Stones covers, weird spoken bits with a French accent, rave-ups, bad jokes, and more. Not quite up my alley except for the oddness that hits you on the first play, although others seem to like it. Killer psych sleeve."
(Patrick The Lama in "The Acid Archives")
