Highs In the Sixties Part 7

0
0
Coming down the home stretch on this exhaustive and great series, a real find for anyone who loves both super-obscure 60's psych/garage and also for lovers of the individual sounds of the different regions of the country, which beleive it or not was actually possible in the days before radio
consultants and focus groups and the like.

Volume 19 returns to Michigan for the thrid time, The Orange Wedge's "From the Womb to the Tomb" is fairly well known and well comped, but it IS a great track. The Iguanas......help me out, is this "THE" Iguanas, featuring a young pup named Iggy Pop? unsure. otherwise we get another band called the Chessmen (they, as well as the Tempests, are actually from Indiana), and the Oxford 5 check in with, no, not "Hey Joe"........but........"Gloria"!  I don't think this version was on that three disc "Battle of the Glorias" thing I had on here a while back......I think I could probably comp another (fourth) disc of them, honestly......

We return to the West Coast for Volume 20, "LA Part 4".....The Bees, The Dovers, Human Expression have all appeared on other comps, (without checking coz I don't care, some of this probably overlaps with "Where the Action Is")......the Aftermath check in with, would you beleive "Gloria"......I might be able to put together TWO more discs of the "Gloria" comp!

Volume 21 is near and dear to my heart, as we return home (MY home, Skippy), the GREAT BUCKEYE STATE, (Ohio Part 2) which features two tracks from the Endless, whom, according to the label were from SPRINGFIELD OHIO, MY lifelong HOME! And, other than this comp, I have never, ever heard of them......that is SPRINGFIELD OHIO though.......home of Jonothon Winters, Lillian Gish, John Legend, setting for the former CBS Soap Opera "The Guiding Light", and stomping grounds of one of the worst of serial killers, William Sapp.........anyway, add "The Endless" with their fine pair of songs to the legend that is SPRINGFIELD OHIO. From right down I-75 in Dayton, we have The Pictorian Skiffles, and right up I-70 to columbus, we have The FOur O Clock Balloon and the Epics.....not really one of the top sets in the series, even though
obviously it holds a drop of sentiment for me......The Endless FOREVER! Reminds me of the God-awful (pun intended) stupid-metal band of the 1970's the Godz, one of whom was from Springfield. Those clowns made litterally one of the worst metal albums of all time ("The Godz") which naturally features perhaps the most obnoxious metal SONG ever released ("Gotta Keep Running"....sample lyrics: "We're Everything Your Parents Ever Warned You About!"........"EVERYBODY'S Junkies!"....."The Godz are rock N roll MACHINES!".......I think it was Robert Christgau who observed, "They're funnier than Blue Oyster Cult, only they're not trying".......just a little piece of Springfield Ohio cultcha!
