Highs in the Mid Sixties, Part 6

0
0
For a Saturday, three more fab discs of obscure and highly regionalized 1960's psych/garage from
three different corners of the US of A....volume 16 features part three of perhaps my favorite region, The Northwest, I think the Northwest sound of that era was quite unique, very individual. And, once more, the well-known acts of the era/region are nowhere to be found (this is a GOOD thing as those tracks are easilly available elsewhere). Perhaps the best known act here is Rocky & His Friends with the very fab "Riot City", otherwise we get a wonderous assortment of lesser luminairies such as International Brick, Pembrook LTD, and the City Zu....great volume in the series.

Volume 17 brings us back to Texas (the fourth Texas volume in the series).....we do get a fab track from Neal Ford and the Fanatics "Bitter Bells", otherwise, SJ & the Crossroads, The Souncations, and of course the Roks, who check in with their version of that hard to find chestnut "Hey Joe" (I REALLY want to do a self-made "Battle of the 'Hey Joe's", much like the three disc "Gloria" comp I posted a while back.....honestly I think I can probably get a 25-30 track disc, maybe two discs, out of all the versions of "Hey Joe".......perhaps, one day.

And Volume 18 lands us in Colorado, who give us a few acts that I've run across on a some other comps, such as The Monocles, Moorakers, and the Elopers groovy "Music To Smoke Bananas By" (!), this is ALSO one of the better volumes in the series, and is the ONLY Colorado disc in the set
.

LOTS of good feedback on this series thusfar, I wasn't sure......I guess, maybe there IS a high demand for this stuff, the more obscure the "better", I don't know......we are about three steps BENEATH "Nuggets" now, as obviously "Nuggets" contained some records that were actually huge hits....that ain't where we are now with this series and some of the others I've put up and will continue to (I guess) for a while, as you guys seem to really be diggin' em', and there will NEVER be enough obscure psych-punk-garage for yours truly.

Keep on rocking
