This fabulous double-disc set of outtakes, alternate versions and rarities was my introduction to Franco Falsini & co., aka Sensations Fix, one of the most soaring, truly Kosmische space-prog ensembles this side of Hawkwind or Amon Duul II. Though born in Italy, Franco somehow wound up in Virginia (???) and recorded a bunch of these tunes in his basement studio. They got sent back to the rest of the band in Italy and revised for a series of albums on Polydor, which never went anywhere and led to a couple decades of label-hopping obscurity. Anyway, they've finally been rescued from oblivion, and from the very first ecstatic anthem on this compilation you'll be blasted off into kaleidoscopic solar systems of blissful Fix. Put this in your pipe and smoke it!
