Sorta by request but better.....,TEXAS blowout!

So, the skinny is as follows......someone requested the "Texas Flashbacks" series, which I do happen
to have here, and am going to post....but TALK ABOUT OVERLAP......most everything here is available either on "Psychedelic Disaster Whirl", or the "Psychedelic Experience"........or somewhere.....but so what? If the guy wants that whole series, he can have em as far as I'm concerned, so today, I'll be putting them up.......BUT just as a bonus for all you lovers of Texas psych, the next couple days I'm also gonna treat ya's to "Never Ever Land, Texas Nuggets from IA Records 1965-70 (3 Discs)", "Texas Punk Groups of the 60's" (2 Discs), "Ten Years in Texas", and SIX discs of "History of Garage Bands In Texas in the 60's"........HOW THE HELL ABOUT THAT?

And, if you'd like your state represented, I can catch MOST of em, maybe not Rhode Island or North Dakota, but I have a TON TON TON more of this great regional rock, and judging by the numbers, you guys are digging them as well......but the Texas blowout begins today with "Texas Flashbacks", SIX somewaht skimpy discs that include a LOT of overlap with previous issues.....but who am I to complain? There ARE a fw tracks here unique to the set, I think, so whoever requested it, please do enjoy, and the niex couple days we'll delve into a bit more rare/obscure stuff from the Lone Star State. Till then, enjoy...

Disc one features some good ones, Floyd Dakil
FOur's "Bad Boy", "That's The Way my Love Is" from the Trolls, but acts like the Barons, and Sherwoods have appeared on some of these other sets, I'm sure........Disc two also includes a few fairly well knowns such as the Blue THings, SJ & the Crossroads, and Chevelle Five, but also a good mixture of lesser knowns (at least in Ohio) such as Run Aways (no not THOSE Runaways!), Knight Bridge, and Jimmy Rabbir & the Karats.

Disc 3 is a skimpy 16 track effort, and a LOT of it is available elsewhere here (meaning here on this blog)......Blox, Barons. Sweet Smoke, and Stereo Shoestring have been on comps just this week, I think.......Disc 4 is pretty much more of the same, The Roks (ahhhh, "Hey Joe"), Leo & the Prophets, The Perils......sorry if you've just recently downloaded these tracks but I think the requester is wanting them in an all-Texas kind of company, so be it.

Volume 5......well, of coure we've recently heard from Larry & the Blue Notes, Tommy Jett, The Bards, .......Volume 6 more of the same from the Nomads, SJ &  the Crossroads, The Bourbons.......I am NOT in general a fan of posting stuff with this much overlap, but perhaps you can cut-and paste your own set of tracks that did not appear on earlier sets.........and besides, dig it.....the next few posts are gonna still be ALL THINGS TEXAS, but with  VERY VERY minimal overlap, and ACCENT on the obscure/rare...........thanks to the state of Texas for all you've given the rest of us, uh, well, the 13th floor Elevators and Black Angels and all that great 1960's psych, always kinda liked the University of Houston and the Rockets when Hakeem Olajuwon played there.....I'm sure other good stuff comes from there, too......just not thinking of it right now.
