Lost Souls Volume 3 - Arkansas Garage Psychedelic Rock 1963-1971
This compilation digs deeper than ever before into the vault of obscure Arkansas rock 'n' roll from the 1960s and early 70s. Lost Souls Volume 3 includes uncomped and unknown gems from small regional studios in the form of acetates, 45s, and recently discovered reel to reel tapes. The sounds heard here include garage and psychedelic rock combined with rockabilly, soul, and even country thrown into the mix that is distinctly Arkansas. This compilation comes as the result of years of research and findings from the original bands and label owners. Many of these tracks were recorded live by the groups at shows and rehearsals or live in the studio at places like at Rimrock in Concord, AR, Joe Keene's in Kennett, MO, Joe Lee's Variety Studio in Jonesboro, and Earl Fox's E&M studio in Little Rock to name a few. This CD offers a glimpse into the past. If you were going to a local American Legion building to hear the latest sounds from local bands in the 1960s in Arkansas then this is what you would have heard. The songs were done by real people, not a major recording studios, professional studio musicians, or major label executives directing the groups. The artifacts that remain are dusty photos, records, and reel to reel tapes that have survived for over 40 years in personal collections. Through the research of compiler, Harold Ott, the stories of the bands are told and friends from decades past are reunited to celebrate their contributions to the world of garage rock and psychedelia.

The CD is the product of a year and a half of research into the garage groups that formed in Arkansas in the wake of the British Invasion. Bands from all over the state formed at this time to make their own records at a handful of studios scattered across the state.
Psych of the South is dedicated to uncovering the lost 1960s and early 1970s recordings of Arkansas. Through interviews with original band members, studio owners, and fans, Psych of the South is bringing new life to the sound of Arkansas' rich musical past with the Lost Souls Volume 1 CD.

Thanks Eggman for digging the CD and playing in on the radio. That's a huge help man! Mad Mojo Marmalade thanks for all your support from the very start. I added a couple of pics that didn't make the liner notes for the Lost Souls Vol. 1 CD. I'll keep you guys up to date with what's going on here and on the v2 and G45 forums too. Enjoy!
Yay! Harold has arrived! We have now completed this circle of online friendship. This means that through all these avenues, Lost Souls & Psych of the South will always be on my radar. I really can't say enough how great the first edition is and the small & personable production scale from which it was born is quite the accomplishment. I'll always enjoy your labor of love & you already know I'm looking forward to what's to come from Arkansas. Giving much thanks & hoping you guys keep on discovering these gems for us!
