Yowsa! There is literally STACKS of top notch Swedish Psych out there. Parson Sound and International Harvester would have to be my favourites, but this comp is a good way in. I can't remember where I got it (the label and year are a mystery).
The Lea Riders Group track is a real trip, 'Dagen Ar Over' by Charlie & Esdor is one of the greatest singles EVER and the aforementioned Parson Sound prove once again there is an argument for them being the greatest Swedish psych group of all.
