V.A. - California Love-In MP3/Flac

This unofficial release went about six volumes and was compiled "from members for members" of the (now gone) U-Spaces group. Some illustrious people were involved like Max Waller, Patrick Lundborg or Alec Palao, to name a few. By the time of finishing "California Love-in" contains previously uncompiled or forgotten material of Psychedelic and Pop groups from the californian '60s. For my taste more than half of the material is well worth hearing. As I was never a member of any group or forum I've picked it up a while ago at Soulseek.
