V/A - Psychedelices 1969 - 1972
Here's a compilation I ran across on the file sharing networks. Searches for "Psychedelices" (which I think could be roughly translated to something like "psychedelicacies"... correct me if I'm wrong here) only turn up a highly questionable album by some modern French singer who is probably referred to as a "chanteuse" even in her English-language press kit. So anyway, I don't think this is actually a real compilation available anywhere.
