Texas BLOWOUT Part Dos!

Yesterday's "Texas Flashbacks" was by request, and pretty much a formality as there was so much
overlap with the many other sets I've posted here....but the guy wanted them, and THAT IS WHAT WE DO HERE (SHARE).....today we flesh out the Texas 60's psych scene a bit with the fine "The History of Texas Garage Bands in the 60's", which still has a BIT of overlap, even some with "Texas Flashbacks", but I'd say the material here is about 80%-90% unique to those of you who have been following my stuff here.

Volume 1 features a label, "The Sea Ell Label", I gather, and right off the top I notice Knight's Bridge has a few cuts, they were also on "Flashbacks" (unsure if same tracks, to lazy to check, you know the drill!)......we get also, though, the lesser known (outside Tejas anyway), The Wolves, Satyn's Children, Georger Washington & the Cherry Stompers, and a good deal more from the obscure/unknown rack.

Volume 2 continues with the Sea Ell Label, but features only two acts, The Smokin' Bananas and The Intruders (Intruders all demos).....14 tracks from the Intruders is all you'll ever need I'd wager, but they are decent, with several alternate takes. At least ehy spare me "Hey Joe"

Volume 3 turns the corner to AOK records, plenty of unknown gems to enjoy here.....Carroll's Mood, Wry Catchers, Venturas......Volume 4 is NOT label specific, it is simply "West Texas Rarities", although oddly enough a lot of the AOK bands (Wry Catchers, Carrolls Mood) turn up here, and the Illusions at least make sure we don't have to go too TERRIBLY long without a version of "Gloria" (had me a little worried for a while).

Volume 5 is entitled "Corpus Christi Rarities", best known of whom are the Zakary Thaks, we also get Liberty Bell, Michale, and a spate of bands simply lableled "Unknown" (I love that!).

Volume 6 is composed of entirley one band, Sunset Love, flowery, hippie, acidic stuff, just what you are most likely looking for have you stumbled in here. And the final Volume 7, gives us a bunch of tracks from the Orbit Records label, featuring a lot from Lemon Fog (very good), also the Nomads, the Smoke, and the Rebellers......I don't even think there IS per se a "Volume 7", it is labelled "Volume 2 of the Orbit Records Story", but since there is a volume 1-2-3-4-5-6, I just figured I'd stick it on the end as #7 (and to the original requester, this "volume 7" or whatever it is is quite similar to mthe originally requested "Three O Clock Miriam
Webster Time" (but NOT identical).

The Construction of this set is kind of odd, I think,
but it still manages to work, due to the obscure nature of the music.....personllay, I'd have programmed it a LOT differently, but that is just me. If you came here yesterday looking for Texas psych/garage of the 60's these will not disappoint, nor, will tomorrow's series wrap up, even will feature some 13th Floor Elevators, what would such a series be without em?
