Hi Greg,ive only got and heard Agemos Trip,i like its lysergic feel and at times floyd like sound.Theres a cheap cd available with some fab extra tracks released a few year back now,i think it was 2002,i think its on the Universal record label Rotation.You get single tracks in fact you get 7 extra tracks,its a good buy Greg,im sure you'll enjoy most of it,tho the 14 minute track"hands on your shoulder"is a bit long and mendearing imo,others probably love its stoned ramblings.Never heard "Paradise Now"could someone give a description of that album please?
I've got the same CD as Stuart and it's pretty good with lots of bonus tracks. Quite tripped-out though could be a bit more tuneful in spots. "Paradise Now" is supposed to have longer tracks but many afficionados prefer it to the 1st lp. Either way,should definitely be a part of any self-respecting psych-head's collection.

Re: Group 1850
Paradise Now has longer tracks that have more improvisation and a 'live in the studio' feel. These are all things that normally put me off, but Paradise Now is great spacey psychedelia and easily as good as the first.
It was first issued on the Discophoon label, run by the Dutch equivalent of Woolworths!

Re: Group 1850
I'm sure you'll enjoy Agemo's Trip Greg, I think it's very much in your area of muscial interest. The CD edition with all the bonus singles tracks is on Dutch reissue label Psuedonym and should be a cheap one to pick up. Good calue too. Personally, I don't like the album, but love Group 1850s singles, so I bought the 2 x LP gatefold sleeve edition of those on Psuedonym that came out recently and it's a lovely sleeve design as well.
