Sweden's Sitar Heros
Sweden has many amazing psychedelic treasures to offer. Charlie and Esdor are just one culled from the overwhelming camp of Scando blotters. I'm a sucker for well played and well placed sitar as well so this is one of my favorite "pop" oriented Swedish psych albums. They also have a song called "Fuck The Cops" that was a protest song to cops who harassed legions of hippies living in a park in the middle of Stolkholm. The songs on this album come off a bit inconsistent as they never recorded a full length but are non the less enjoyable. This is they're entire recorded output that is pooled together from singles, comp tracks, and rare archived tapes.
