Another maybe somewhat unexected corner of the globe for some garage/psych rock, Czchoslovakia
(remember Dan Akroyd and Steve Martin as those tow "wild and crazy" Czech brothers on "Saturday Night Live"? No? Go watch "Drake and Josh, JUNIOR)......I'm sure was a task to put this one together,I doubt that the Czech Republic had a REAL plethora of rockin' clubs or whatever, but here is a sampling of what they COULD come up with I guess.......the Matadors get three tracks, as does Flamengo, and Juventus, the Beatmen get two, and the Olympics get a single one.......I'd call this one a bit more "interesting" (and it is that) than "listenable" (although it is NOT "un-listenable").....hey, it's all rock n roll.......we owe it to ourselves to check out ALL the amature noisemakers from ALL the corners of the globe.......and this one is just another in the parade.

Talk about obscurites, you came to the right locale today......"Steam Kodok-17 Ultrarariteis From the
Sixites, Malaysia and Singapore" (actually a few cuts from Thailand as well).......haven't listended to this in a few years, honestly don't remember much of anything about it, but if it's rare ya want it's rare ya got this time.......I'm dreading looking for photos of any of these folks to dress up the blog, but let me get the track list on here first:
Short post today, can't really say much about this stuff as it is not fresh in my memory or anything,
I'll get around to listenting to it in case any of ya want to discuss this or anything. Anyway, I strive for odd-ball stuff, and is there another way to describe this one? See ya again tomorrow!
The pic below is Rosna from the featured act Rosna and the Siglap Five.......not bad at all, I love me some Eastern women anyways, but she looks really hot on that (assumed quite old) picture.........just thought you guys might like a look at her, I will even, out of respect for her, withhold the sexist swill I am so infamous for (especially, ya know, in case she is like 70 years old or dead or whatever)
In honor of the ailing Nelson Mandela here is a set fo 1960's "Beat-Garage Growlers From Beyond
Cape of Good Hope"......as with some many of these exotic locales, household names are not exactly dripping off the cover. By now you know the drill, I like the stuff as obscure and unknown as I can get it, hopefully some of you do too......

GARAGE ROCK FROM 1960'S SOUTH AFRICA, UNCLE BIGSCOTT62 YOU GODDAMN PERV?
Well, nothin.....just felt like slobbering over HER today!
Have a good evening!
Don't miss this one, it's funny/weird/good and I think fairly rare, at least I haven't seen many of em
around......the proper name of this collection would be "Danish Garage Bands Perform America's Hottest Garage Rock Songs" (see how fitting? GARAGE bands, and they're doing GARAGE songs......were I half as innovative I'd found a way to finally get Cameron Diaz to marry me by now.....Evidently there are more in the series, as some of these same bands perform songs by the Beatles, Stones, Spencer Davis Group and perhaps more......any friends of the blog happen to have any of them, I'll put them up, I've never heard them but this one is the "real deal"!

......so it is and so it will be, any of you Yanks that took a valuable high school course in the French
language might have fun helping us out with what some of these titles "mean".....anyway, these three discs are all fab. Evidently the French had not so much of a garage scene (easilly imaginable for some reason), but with a few exceptions their scene seemed to run toward psych-pop......first up we have "O Toi Beatnik: Chansons Obscures du beat Francophone 1965-67!!! (punctuation theirs, not mine)"...so I gather these would be tracks from 1965-67, and I'd gather that they are obscure, and I love the "!!!", implying maybe greatness? Find out for yourself......Les Senders, Les Volcans, Les Bowlers, Equipe 79.......scores more, not going to list song titles in this paragraph cause I have NO CLUE as to whether any of them are amusing or not.......
Saving the best for last and side stepping my
concept (just a bit), this one has some 1970's stuff as well as the "Nuggets" era, pure psych-pop, but here is the thing......perhaps the greatest album title in compilation history, "Freakout Total".........how great is that? "Freakout Total", gotta love it! Plus, this is also a fab album, you'll love this one as well too, trust me, check below for the artists/track titles, losts of dashes and appostrophes in the names and titles, supposedly this is a "beautiful" language, but it sure is a pain in my ass to type.........and, although this is hard to confirm, there seem to be a LOT of volumes of "Freak Out Total"......this one is the most easilly accessible, seemingly (Volume 3), if anyone has them AND (important) they are REALLY hearing, send em along, but we have a pretty thick slice of French stuff here as is, so if it is as repetititive as I suspect it MIGHT be (and I'm wrong all the time), I'll pass, but something French that is more along the "garage-y" stuff we've been digging on from everywhere else, set me straight, Daddy-o!

I love them accents on them sexy French babes, not quite so much as say Aussie babes or Swedish,
but those French babes have a kind of sexy arrogance their voices, a kind of "I'm better than YOU" attitude (actually I LIKE that, don't get me wrong).......and I assume that the land of France, at the VERY least, has given us the wonderful toungue wrestling exercise for which it is named, and of course that is no small thing, not at all.........
God I am such a witty punsmith! Anyways, Greece had them a solid garage scene in the Nuggets
years, three discs again today as I work like the proverbial dog to continue to provide a solid stream of widely varied garage and pscyh rock from everywhere!
First up we have a two-disc set entitled "Six Miles From the Cage, Sounds From Greece 1965-68".....call me stupid (many do) but I have NO IDEA what the title means, maybe nothing I guess, but if it is colloquial (colloquial is your vocabulary building word of the day), perhaps someone more well-versed in Greek culture could fill me in.....or just leave me feeling stupid! Either way, ya know.....
Some overlap here, but might as well also put up "Greek Garage Bands of the 60's"....The Teenagers
have a pair of tracks, BOTH of which appeared on "Six Miles From the Cage", as do the Knacks' "The Theme of the Day" and The Stormies "Dilly Dilly"......the Loubogg are represented on the other set as well, but give us a fresh track ("She is Cool") on this one......so "new" bands appearing on this one include The Persons, The Rabbits, and the Girls, we also get "new" ones from The Stormies, with a little "programming" this can be a fine companion piece to the other 2 disc set, I'll practically guarentee you could fit this one two CD's leaving off the repeats.......all in all, I think this is about as comprehensive a look at the Greek garage-rock scene of the Nuggets era, as always, unique in its own way and also derivative in its own way.......one of the better International sets, in my opinion, here they be if ya want em!

Most likely back tomorrow with something else, looking forward to a shortened work week this week! Always did enjoy Independence Day, fireworks, cookouts, all that stuff......hope everyone has a good one
Much like the Danish set the other day with all those hilarious cover versions, we are treated to
another similar set, this one from Mexico technically titled "Rare Mxican Cuts From the 60's"....difference being these dudes dont even attempt English, and sometimes the results just sound hilarious.....or, maybe it's just me? ........I could name every cut and it major props, but a few highlights:
Migue Angel & Los Sharpes check in with the very rare, hardly ever covered chestnut, "Gloria", and Los Locos Del Ritmo dig up the hardly-ever before chestnut "Hey Joe"..Los Yaki take a turn at "Jumpin' Jack Flash", Los Johnny Jets take down "Get Off Of My Cloud", Los Ovnis interperet "Mothers Little Helper, and Los Apson give us "Satisfaction".......evidently the Stones were somewhat big in Mexico. Other interesting takes are Los Monstrous take on the Pretty Things "Mama Keep Your Big Mouth Shut", and Los Belmont's "Over Under Sideways Down".......
RARE MEXICAN CUTS FROM THE 60'S-01
LOS LOCOS DEL RITMO-Peter Gunn Theme/02 LOS ANIS-Mary Mary/03 LOS APSON-Satisfaction/04 LOS MONSTROUS-Mama Keep Your Big Mouth Shut/05 LOS APSON-Susie Q/06 LOS JOHNNY JETS-Fever/07 MIGUEL ANGEL & LOS SHARPS-Gloria/08 LOS BELMONT-Over Under Sideways Down/09 LOS ROCKIN DEVILS-Hello I Love You/10 LOS LOCOS DEL RITMO-Hey Joe/11 LOS YAKI-Jumpin Jack Flash/12 LOS JOHNNY JETS-Everything Is Alright/13 LOS JOHNNY JETS-Cool Jerk/14 LOS OVNIS-Mothers Little Helper/15 LOS JOHNNY JETS-Get Off
It's Sunday Night as I type this, sometimes on Sunday I try to get a few posts ready for the week so I don't have to work so hard during the week. Anyway, I remember listening to this one several years ago and loving it, can't wait to listen to it again tomorrow on the morning drive, hope it's as zany as I recall!
This is an interesting and good single disc set......some good weird band names ("Tulio e os Hitch-
Hikers", "The Brazilian Bitles", which I HOPE is a "Beatles" reference) and some equally weird song titles ("Weird Ties, Wide Belts, and......")......the Brazillian sound/influence is strong, unique, and identifiable, really a good set. Som Beat (whom you likely know from some other comps) take on "My Generation", while Os Aranhas tackle even bigger game, that obscure, rarely-covered chestnut "Gloria"......O Seis contributes an awesome "Suicida", and pretty much every track is worthwhile.....it's a good set and as essential as any that I've been putting up of late!
BRAZILLIAN PEBBLES-01 TULIO E OS HITCH HIKERS-I Got a Woman/02 SOM BEAT-My Generation/03 O SEIS-Suicida/04 ANALFABITLES-Shake/05 THE OUT CASTS-Weird Ties Wide Belts and......./06 THE BABYS-Venha Ca/07 OS ARANHAS-Gloria/08 OS SANTOS-Tres Garotas/09 OS MINOS-Febre de Minos/10 THE BUBBLES-Nao Vou Cortar o Cabelo/11 THE BEGGARS-Esses hommens Farrapos/12 OS MEGATONS-Meu Machucadinho/13 OS CANIBAIS-Sou Canibal/14 OS BOABAS-Down Down/15 THE JUNGLE CATS-Vai/16 OS PRIMITIVOS-Peguei um Ita no Norte/17 OS BRASAS-Mulher Rendeiera/18 THE BEATNIKS-Era um rapaz/19 OS BAOBAS-Bye Bye My Darling/20 THE BRAZILIAN BITLES-Dedicado a Quem Amei/21 THE HANGMEN-Hangmen
So, Sweden....home of such great recent stoner rock and SUCH awesomly beautiful women (arguably
the world's finest?) comes this tasty set of 26 generally lesser-known tracks , a few of these bands are familar from some other comps, and a few familar covers turn up as well.......
So, The Bootjacks, Namelosers, and Lea Riders Group have turned up elsewhere I think, the Namelosers treat us to a version of "Land of 1000 Dances" (personally I can't ever listen to ANYONE'S version of that one without thinking of Patti Smith's brain-bending version), and The Best (wishful thinking THERE guys) cover the blues standard "Back Door Man"......
Yet another get from another corner of this wondersome planet. If I'm thinking correctly you are seeing this on July 4, Independence Day in the good ol' USA, so have a happy holiday.....if it's not a holiday in your part of the world, well, have a fine dy anyway.
See ya tomorrow, likely.....

We had LOTS of Japanese stuff a month or so agao in that titanic post,I'd check how much overlap
there was between this set and that one except there is no way I could possibly care even a tiny bit less.....cleaning off the shelves, so to speak, and preparing to head in another direction (TOTALLY unsure as to what however).
This set is good in that it features NUMEROUS tracks from most of the featured bands, the legendary Mops, the well-known Jaguars, the fairly well known Spiders, etc.....most likely a lot of this shit was featured earlier, DEAL WITH IT! (anyway, the Mops "I'm Just a Mops" DESERVES to be repeated over and over again!!).....
Ever seen the kickass Japanese film "Battle Royale"? It is great, a "Hunger Games" (and I LOOOOVE the "Hunger Games" about 20 years before it's time.....subtitles are a pain in the ass, but in this case they are worth it.......go rent "Battle Royale" this weekend and see just how very right I am!

See ya asses tomorra!
Certaly I have several sets of stuff British from the 1960's-Nuggets era, sort of outside the concept
as , unlike most other lands they didn't just attempt to knock off the US sound, as pretty always (punk, metal) they had their own unique sound that was NOT superior to the US in my view, simply stood side by side......the difference, as it were, being something like the difference between Visa and Master Card, or, even, the American League and National Leauge (is an AMERICAN baseball reference for you who don't grasp my meaning.....forgive, I've been drinking all day, and sampling some "other" stuff as well......it IS a long weekend after all!)
McPhee and co, I did a huge post about them in thier latter incarnation a while back when they were a slammin', screeching guitar-blues band......anyway, it is WAAAAY cool that we get an early track from them here, we aslo get the Primitives, The Wild Ones, The Birds, The Rats, and a few other legends of the era.
Disc 2 treats us to Mickey Finn, Muleskinners, The Limeys, and LOTS more......Disc 3 brings us a few tracks from the Ravens featuring Kinks Dave Davies, the Raving Savages version of "Surf City" (!), Sons of Fred, the Shakespears and LOTS more......
Disc Four? Glad you'd ask.....good stuff from the Clique, Soul Agents, Syndicats (the standard "Crawdaddy Simone"), Mickey Finn & the Bluemen, and a TON more. Disc Five gives us Pete Best, Billy J Kramer, The Peeps, New York Public Library, and of coures the Cryin' Shames take on (wait for it) "What's New Pussycat?".......and finally Disc 6....we get the Fairies, Junco Partners, Bo & Peep, David John & the Mood, and lots more......OK, in the US this stuff is pretty damned obscure.....I'm sure some of you folks that call SOCCER "football" will be quite familar with a lot of it, but us Statesiders (who call FOOTBALL "football") have really limited experience with a lot of this.......

OK, let me explain my thinking here.....THE definitive Italian 1960's comp is the volumnous "Atto di
Forza", without looking I'd guess I have 15-16 volumes perhaps more......that is a bit much for the kind of thing I am doing, IF you happen to have interest in that set, I implore you to visit
http://paradiseofgaragecomps.blogspot.com/ his site is based out of Italy, and most likely he is the world's foremost expert on Italian garage/beat/psych whatever, if not he sure as hell knows a good deal more about it than do I......I'm certain the "Atto di Forza" set is there as that's where I originally picked it up, besides that it's a hell of a great site (MUCH better/more focused than the one you are focussing your eyes upon right now)......."Atto di Forza" is a fine set, I recommend it to you, but I think it's a bit excessive for what I'm doing with THIS site (or TRYING to do).......
"Garage Beat In Florence" features the Telstars, I Tremendi, Noi Tre, Danny, and a few more, I list these because all are given a generous representation of their (4-5 tracks each), which I always think is kind of cool......Noi Tre appears on "60's Beat Italiano" as well, with one of the same tracks, even, but most of the rest are non-overlapping......I Chewing Gum, I Jaguars, The Red Roosters.......not household names in the USA but good, and of course if you are familiar with "Atto di Forza" you'll know about some of them.
So here you go......I guess I could have put up that whole "Atto di Forza" thing, but it might be a bit
redundant, and, anyway, I already directed you to THE authority on all rock-Italian.....my preferece, in these international comps (for the most part) has been just to give a small taste so the various styles can be compared and enjoyed, not to get all "Completist", know what I mean?
By the way "60's Beat Italiano" is the LP version, the CD version has a few more tracks, don't complain, it's what I have.....if you have the additional tracks (I bet Psyclist has em but he's biking around Southeast Asia!), wrap em up and put em in the comments section.
Hope everyone has a good week, got a FEW more regions of Earth to check into, then onto some maybe less-specific, less-rigidly compiled Nugget rock/psych.....we'll see, I really do have LOTS more!

I have here before me a CD labled as follows: "Cambodian Rocks! Psychedelia From Southeast Asia
Late 1960's"..........this is a "homemade" CD, I recall creating it, actually, ten years ago or so, and I have enjoyed it tremendously over the years......problem being: I can find NO information for it. My "Go To" site for such things "Garage Comp Data Base" lists a few discs by this title, none of them seem to "match up" at least as I can see, and (unusual for that usually great site) theier info for these discs is out-of-character incomplete......the one I have has 22 tracks, none with even a smattering of Ingles that I can notice anyway (WHY doesn't someone cover "Hey Joe" when I NEED them too?)......Ok here it is. I am going to put this disc up WITHOUT A TRACK LIST and WITHOUT ARTISTS. Why?
So enjoy this set.....it's a mystery set, for now, but a DAMN GOOD ONE. If you help us out, please do, but if ya can't check it out anyway, it's a REALLY good one!
CAMBODIAN ROCKS-22 Tracks, All Artists/Titles Unknown (to me anyway).......HEEEELP!
And by the way since I don't know the artists to search for pictures of, I'm sure you won't mind if I put up a couple of SMOKING HOT Cambodian babes, anyone of which can park her stillettos under
MY bed any night of the week
Well, I am running low on corners of our globe to investigate......when I run out I think I'll stick with
Nugget-rock/garage/psych whatever for a little while, it has been phenominally popular, and as I've said I have a TON of it left that I haven't even tapped into yet.....I hope you guys found my geographic presentations interesting, both USA and International, I sure as hell did enjoy doing them and re-listening to some of them for the first time in many years (odd that one of my faves, the Cambodian set, I have no info on, but I do dig the shit out of that set)
So what have we? Los Ovnis treat us to the great standard "Baby Please Don't Go" (hey, at least it isn't "Gloria"!.......Los Yorks "El Loco" is pretty good, The Speakers take on "Lucille" with decent results, and pretty much every track is a winner, it's one of the better sets of this ilk......hope ya enjoy it, this MIGHT be the end of the regionalized posts (unless I come across some others that I have forgotten), but fear not.....I am in a groove with this Nugget-rock/psych/garage stuff for now, and I'm gonna keep it coming for a while, I think I'm just about worn down on the "geographic angle......hope ya's enjoyed it, and hope ya's CONTINUE to enjoy the
DELINCUENTES-01 LOS HITTERS-Delincuente/02 LOS YETIS-No Me Digas Adios/03 LOS OVNIS-Baby Please Don't Go/04 LOS YORKS-El Loco/05 LOS YETIS-Amor Sideral/06 LOS AMPEX-Lost Love/07 LOS YAKI-Las EstatuasDe Marfil/08 THE

Ok, finished with the geography lessons, but still with plenty of comps chock full of
garage/psych/pop, hopefully with minimal overlap from previous postings but at this point, it's obviously inevitable......I liked this set, 8 discs, leaning maybe more to the psych/pop side of things.......
Volume 2 ("The Day Breaks at Dawn" (hey no foolin'?))moves right along with more of the same, Flowers, Fruit, and Pretty Things (who I mention becuase their bass player sent me a very nice email when they were featured on one of the "USA Garage Greats" discs), Zorba & the Greeks, and the (for whatever reason) standing-out-like-a-sore thumb "Mr. Custer" by Search........oh well, it COULD be another "Gloria" cover I suppose.
Volume 3 "Stay Out of My World"continues to pile unknowns and semi-unknowns, Camel Drivers,
Tikis, Burlington Express, Young Ideas and PLENTY more......finally (for today) we have volume 4 "Experiment in Color", ......Rock SHop, Trojans of Evol, Apperson Jackrabbit.......this is much closer to Pebbles/Gravel territory than it is to "classic" Nuggets ma, but I think you will enjoy this set.......four more discs tomorrow, and after that, maybe some MORE obscure (but non-regionalized) obscure psych/pop.......ok with all my dawgs?

So for today the final four discs of "Fuzz Flaykes and Shaykes", more of the fairly obscure light
psych/pop from the set started yesterday......still unsure what Tony the Tiger has to do with any of this, I guess it shall remain an enigma wrapped in a puzzle.
Disc 7 ("You Make Me Lose My Mind") is the alleged finale of the set, featuring more "I THINK I've heard of them" type bands, Palace Guards, Young Aristocracy, Mark V, Pictorian Skiffuls, and lots more........To me, though, Disc 8 (the "Leftovers" disc) is the most rewarding, with THIRTY TWO tracks ranging from ? and the Mysterians, Bob Seger & the Last Heard, lots of strange stuff, you'll love it if this is your thing.........
Well, what shall tomorrow bring us? Undecided, but of course you know it will be all fabulous and cool, and you'll be once again wishing to send me cash rewards.

LEFTOVERS-(NOTE: I can find very little info on this particular disc, it is not listed in Garage Comp Data Base, generally the best site for getting info on these things......I found the track list on Chocoreve's old site, which is where I got this from orginally (I know, because MY track list lacks some artists as does his, take a look http://chocoreve.blogspot.com/2006/01/fuzz-flaykes-shakes-vol-1-2-3-4-5-6-7.html anyway, some of the tracks have no listed performer (tracks 15 , 21, and 26)....I assume they MIGHT belong to the artist with the previous track, but this is simply speculation......anybody knows, let m know........01 THE SANDALS-Always, I will Remember/02 THE GREEN BEANS-Don't Give Me No Friction/03 THE TROPICS-This Must Be the Place/04 BOB SEGER & THE LAST HEARD-Vagrant Winter/05 ? & THE MYSTERIANS-Ain't It a Shame/06 THE FLOCK-Got To Hold Onto My Mind/07 THE WINKLE PICKERS-I Haven't Got You/08 THE SOUNDS-Little Joe/09 THE WAPHPHLE-GOin Down/10 THE WORDS OF LUV-I'd Have To Be Out Of My Mind/11 THE RAZORS EDGE-Baby's On His Way/12 THE DAZE OF THE WEEK-One Night Stand/13 THE NEW ERA-We Ain't Got Time/14 THE WONDERS-I'm Not Willin'/15 Baby Come Back/16 THE GREEN BEANS-Superstition/17 THE SANDALS-All Over Again/18 THE BIRTH OF SPRING-Cause You Lied to Me/19 THE CUTAWAYS-Hold Me/20 THE SOUNDS UNLIMITED-Why Doesn't She Beleive Me/21 Nobody But You/22 DAVID CLAYTON THOMAS & THE SHAYS-Take Me Back/23 THE SHAGGS-She Makes Me Happy/24 THE SHANDELS-Stop Your Crying/25 THE SECOND HELPING-On Friday/26 Floating Downstream/27 THE MOON RAKERS-I'm Alright/28 TINO & THE REVLONS-Little Girl Little Girl/29 TONY & THE VIZITORS-Saturday's Son/30 THE WATCHBAND-No
I don't think this set is REALLY well known, maybe in Europe it is, not so much here I don't
think.....it's a TINY bit more "latter-day" than most of the Nuggets-style comps, the proper title is "We Can Fly Volume ____, UK Psychedelic Obscurities 1966-71", generally a bit more hard-edged than, say, the psych-pop on "Fuzz Flaykes and Shaykes", actually one of my favorite comps of this variety, a lot of good, unknown, and fairly hard-rocking stuff. Five discs, I'm such a good guy I'll put them all up today!
Volume 3 features the very great Mecki Mark
Men, I once did an entire post on their fabulous stuff, doubt the links are still good though......maybe someone can check. We also get the very cool Cherry Smsh, Shocking Blue, The Magicians, Oharas Playboys......likely the best disc of the series.
Fourth disc gives us Terry Reid, Orange Machine, Mindbenders, and Wimple Witch......another winner of a disc. And finally, the fifth volume treats us to the great Human Instinct (another act that I have done a full post on), Kim Fowley, Cuby & the Blizzards, Elmer Ganty's Velvet Opera......hardly a in the bunch, I am not joking. I've been holding this one back a little, not quite sure it fits the recent "nuggets-style" sets, but I was in the mood for it today, and it REALLY IS a fine set.......PLEASE check it out and please comment, I think you will really like this one if you are a fan of somewhat harder-edged psychedelia.
Couple of other things......congratulate me, yesterday marked my THIRTIETH year on my job. THIRTY! Started
7/10/83.......remember what life was like in 1983........literally, if we woke up tomorrow and it was "magically" 1983 (ala "The Hot Tub Time Machine?") I think most of us would be as lost as if we went back to the 1940's or 1920's, the world is SO much different than it was in 1983, and the changes have become so drastic and rapid, that 1983 practically qualifies as a prehistoric era........just imagine: no cell phones, internet, file sharing, ebooks, DVD's......no Coke Zero, Michelob Ultra, no 2 point conversions in the NFL, people that have been around "forever" like VIkings running back Adrian Peterson who seems like he's been in purple forever, weren't even born yet.......music was in a bit of a downward spiral, The Pretenders, U2, Talking Heads, and some others made it bearable to a degree, but the Metallicas of the world were creeping up........
Anyways back to bizness......this set is REALLY great.......ignore the
fact that the title is kinda silly, but it is TRULY awesome. One of my faves ever, if you love psych with a hard, druggy edge, you will love it as well! I promise!

(VOLUME 1 NOTE-according to Garage Comp Database, there should be 11 more tracks on this one, which would explain my curiosity earlier regarding the "skimpiness" set.....don't remember where I got these or if this one was maybe a vinyl rip, don't recall....but if an amigos of dis here blog happen to have this disc, please share the remaining 11 tracks with us......the remaining 4 discs seem to be complete)

And as an additional note, ading to Garage Comp Database (it's really a fantastic informative site, seehttp://www.soybomb.com/garage-comps/classic/ there are a couple tracks missing from Disc 5 as well.....sorry, this is how I recieved it. Again, if any of ya's has the missing two tracks, please share em with the bro's and ho's out here who'd love em.......anyway even with the shortcomings, this is still a KICKASS set, and I hope to see appropriate download numbers......it is REALLY good!
.....or "L.S.D.", get it? get it? Actually this is some more VERY obscure stuff from the seemingly
endless vaults of U-Spaces.......you'll recognize a few from some other rarities comps, but I think we have VERY little overlap with much of what I've posted....very, very obscure, not nearly (to me) as rewarding a set as yesterday's fab "We Can Fly" (as I said, a favorite of mine), but these three discs are crammed with tracks (27-29 on each) and if you're familiar with more than a handful of them, you probably already own this comp.
Disc 1 gives us a couple tracks from the Cockneys, the Bluebeards "Come On-a My House" (yes, the same one Rosemary Clooney used to rock out on), Chicago Loop who I do know appeared on "Psychedelic States Illinois", and best of all a weird one, "Feep Feep" by Jeep......?..........not to mention stuff like Bunalimar's "Ask Senin Biditin Gibi Degil"......Yankee Dollar's "Reflections of a Shattered Mind" is a pretty good one as well.
And disc three...well, let's continue having fun
with goofball band names, such as Last Friday's Fire, Licorice Sctick, and Recurring Love Habit......we do get an odd cover of "House of the Rising Son" by Joseph, and an even odder version of "Heartbreak Hotel" by Grump. American Zoo turn up on these rarities comps every now and again, as do Oxford Watch Band. All in all, quite worth a listen, and you'll enjoy the general goofiness of it, as well as the genuine "rarity" factor here.
DISC 1-01 THE BLUBEARDS-Come On-a My House/02 APPLE CORPS-Don't Leave Me/03 OXFORD WATCHBAND-Diagnosis (One Way Empty and Down)/04 JEEP-Feep Feep/05 2 OF CLUBS-Walk Tall (Like a Man)/06 FEVER JOHNNY-Zombie/07 RANDY & THE RING-Caverns of the Mind/08 THE TROLLS-Are You the One/09 ART ZOYD-Something In Love/10 CHICAGO LOOP-Begining at the End/11 SENSE OF HUMOR-Secret Thoughts/12 THE COLLECTION-Paper Crown of Gold/13 THE FRONT END-The Real Thing/14 BUNALIMAR-Ask Senin Bilditin Gibi Degil/15 THE COUNTRY GENTLEMEN-Greensleeves/16 TOMMY & CLEVE-I Don't Want To Share Your Love/17 MOTHER NATURE-Lost in the Pacific/18 THE COCKNEYS-Oh No You Won't/19 EMERALDS-Don't Listen To Your Friends/20 CALIFORNIA BEAR-Euology/21 FAIRCHILDS-(I Couldn't Think About Livin' Without You) Thinkin' Bout Me/22 CRYSTAL EMPIRE-Sour Milk Sea/23 THE COCKNEYS-I Know You're Gonna Be Mine/24 TUNAY AKDENIZ VE GRUP CIGRISISM-Babam Yaazdi Ben Besteledim/25 THE HOBBITS-Pretty Young Thing/26 MYDDLE CLASS-Free as the Wind/27 YANKEE DOLLAR-Reflections of

Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to take those anti-depressants!
This could serve as a companion piece to the previous three days' posts....structured something like
yesterday's "LSD" set, but a bit more accessible, and like "We Can Fly" it involves, for the most part, UK performers (maybe there are exceptions as there were with that one)......the sound here is much poppier than "We Can Fly", much more like the pop/psych of "Fuzz Flakes and Shakes".......not nearly as "druggy", if you will, as "We Can Fly" or "LSD", but nonethless solid collections of fairly obscure stuff, although this stuff is probably the MOST familar I've put up in a while. Anyway, it'll fit nicely on your shelf with the rest of em.
FRIENDS OF THE BLOG: I do not have Volume 4, never knew there was one, (It is subtitled "Under the Silent Tree").....I bet at least ONE of you psychheads (Jose, maybe?) can help us to complete this set......but for now, here are the first three of the set.
DISC 2 ("Haunted") has MORE Kinks, MORE Blonde on Blonde, Orange Machine, West Coast Consortium, Montanas.......this set seems to add a bit of depth to some of these acts, an approach I ususally enjoy, I'd rather hear a rare not so great track than the same one that's already appeared on 10 comps........
And Disc 3 gives us several tracks from The Smoke, whom I am CERTAIN I have an album by
around here somewhere, Pussy, who I also have a (quite good) album by, and a solid dosage of unknown/semi-unknown tracks/acts........The missing fourth disc looks pretty interesting, more Kinks, even a track from Fat Mattress......really, if any of you guys have it, take a second and upload it and wepost it, giving you FULL credit and naming you "Friend of the Blog of the Day" for that day, an honor with which comes untold riches and rewards.
OK, I kinda took the "easy" routw with this set, I admit it....quite a bit of overlap, even with stuff I've posted this week......but I think there is a fair amount of obscurities that it works, and also, how the hell will I ever get disc 4 without going this route? And semi-rare Kinks and Status Quo, you have to admit, rarely turns up on these kinda sets........
VOLUME 1-01 THE MOOCHE-Hot Smoke and Sassafras/02 TURNSTYLE-Riding a Wave/03 SCRUGG-Lavender Popcorn/04 KINKS-Lazy Old Sun/05 ORANGE MACHINE-Dr Crippen's Waiting Room/06 STATUS QUO-Mr Mind Detector/07 BLONDE ON BLONDE-All Day All Night/08 EPISODE SIX-I Can See Through You/ 09 BYSTANDERS-Cave of Clear Light/10 GLASS MENGERIE-Frederick Jordan/11 FIRE-I Can See the Light/12 NEW FORMULA-Stay Indoors/13 ANAN-I Wonder Where My Sisters Gone/14 TAXI-Counting Time My Way/15 ORANGE SEAWEED-Pictures in the Sky/16 NEO MAYA-I Won't Hurt You/17 PESKY GEE-Where My Mind/18 WOODY KERN-Biography/19 GENTLE INFLUENCE-Captain Reale/20 ONYX-Tamaris Khan/21 FRESH AIR-Running Wild/22 SORROWS-Pink Purple Yellow Red/23 DAVE DAVIES-Creeping Jean/24 STATUSUO-You're Just What I Was Looking For

I'm really not sure of the U-Spaces "story", but it'd have to be damned interesting....GOD they have
so much cool shit, from that amzing 8-disc set of paychedelic radio ads (one of the greatest recordings EVER), to Psychdelic Archeology, to "San Francisco Nights" (Haven't posted that one, while it IS a bit "mainstream", it is still quite great)
Anyways, what have we here? wel, how about five MORE discs of basically unknown, obscure psych-type stuff, if you guys have been digging the recent comps, you'll be loving this one as well (probably a BIT of overlap with some other comps, but I DO try to work around that as best I can).....
Gonna include 3 MORE U-Spaces comps, single discs each, all crammed to the brim with
rare/obscure tunes togive you your fix......."Fragments" includes 29 tracks.....we know Peppermint Trolley Company due to their stirring rendition of the Brady Bunch Theme (really), and The Wields Memorial Electric String Band turn up quite often (lthough they are certainly NOT to be overlooked), we also get some lesser lights such as Sky, Our Patch of Blue, Bob Rains & Admiral Strange, San Francisco Earthquake and lots more........you just GOTTA love this shit, anyone getting tired of it, even YET? PLEEEEZE tell me if ya are!
Finally, we have "Way Out Wonders".....Poor notes here, 8 tracks are creditted to "Dave Rabbit", with NO TRACK TITLES, (I AM going to research this a bit before posting)......other than that, some good stuff from Dust, Coral Reef, Foremost Authority, Golden Toadstools, PLENTY of off the wall stuff, even if I can't clear up the "Dave Rabbit" mystery
So, OK.......I go the extra mile and research Dave Rabbit.....here is what I find (thanks to the
legendary Chocoreve blog).....".All Dave Rabbit broadcast excerpts included here are from Saigon c. 1971. All excerpts have been left untitled......"The cassette from which this material originates was for sale via Rolling Stone magazine in the mid 70s. People have sold unofficial copies of the recording throughout the years, but this has never seen a legitimate release. How could it? No one has been able to publicly identify who Dave Rabbit was"................"Numerous hypotheses exist as to the identity of Dave Rabbit. Perhaps the most mainstream belief is that he was a sergeant in the air force for one year and then stayed longer in order to broadcast to the troops."........" Perhaps the most interesting speculation is that Dave Rabbit was actually an agent of the Viet Cong posing as an American to subvert troops, lower their morale and weaken them by encouraging drug use."......."Some Vietnamese bars allowed GIs to broadcast on homemade equipment with a small broadcasting range, so as to draw more GIs in the bar. The Dave Rabbit broadcast was considerably more sophisticated, with an estimated broadcast range of 50 miles or greater. Those involved apparently had professional training."......." Similarly, alternative newspapers thrived in Vietnam, at least 215 of them, although many of them only lasted one issue."......."Whatever the truth behind these broadcasts, those who’ve been fans of his for over 30 years have only been able to uncover one 3-hour broadcast, although some claim he was broadcasting in 1970 as well as ‘71." ......"Gave Dave the last word here, since he’s so good at it."........OK, I found out all that shit for ya, hope ya appreciate it, hope Lennon Murphy appreciates it (GAWD I love HER).......so dig it, I told ya I got obscure psych to burn and I was not joking.....there is more to com,WHEN YOU GET SICK OF IT I
