Northwest Killers Vol 1/2/3

0
0
A bit of overlap with "Northwest Battle of the Bands", not too much....still no Raiders, Kingsmen, or
Wailers, AND ALSO no Sonics, Don & the Goodtimes, or Springfield Rifle......this set focusses on even more obscure acts than the previous one! Volume 1 ("Stomp!") features the Frantics, Adventurers, Artesians, and Imperials all of whom are represented by at least 4-5 tracks.

Volume 2 ("Shout!") brings us stuff from The Incredible Kings, Elegants, Legends, Canadian VIP'S, Woody Carr & the El Caminos, Mr Clean & the Cleaners, Eccentrics, Nomads, and Little Daddy & the Bachelors (!), none of whom are exactly household names here in the Midwest, but as I've said so many times, I would wager that at least a couple of them are "legendary" in their territory, and it would be great to hear from people who saw one or more of them rip apart some dive bar in Oregon 45 years ago.

Finally we have Volume 3 ("Work It On Out!") which has a couple of more familiar names, Rocky & His Friends, The Beachcombers, and Jet City Five, along with another batch of lesser-knowns, The Bunch, The Misterians, Plymouth Rockers.....you get the idea.

Unsure if I have another Northwest comp or not, I would think I do, certainly I have one with the "big" names of the region as well (Raiders, Kingsmen, etc).......I know some of them were featured on the "Northwest" volumes of "Highs in the Mid Sixties" a few weeks ago. Gonna go search the shelves and the data base and see if we can shake out another one, if not, we'll head elsewhere, unsure just where yet.

Please let me know how you are enjoying these regionalized sets, I am having fun digging them out,
haven't listened to most of them in a few years.

Note regarding Volume 1 of "Northwest Battle of the Bands".....I guess it is a mess, mislabled/wrong tracks, etc.....Let me do some checking and see if I can find a "proper" copy of it.....meantime enjoy the OTHER 3 volumes, as well as "Northwest Killers"!....Got a REAL good one for tomorrow, wait and see!
