Mad River/Paradise Bar & Grill gathers both albums from the San Francisco '60s cult faves onto one CD. The dark, haunting psych of Mad River's "Merciful Monks," "Amphetamine Gazelle," and "Wind Chimes" and the gentler, countrified feel of Paradise's "Equinox" and "Academy Cemetery" make this two-fer an interesting document of one of psychedelia's most intriguing and obscure bands. ~ Heather Phares
