By Request: Louisiana

0
0
Can't remember who MADE the request, too damn lazy to go look, but here ya go, glad to help ya out.....got FOUR discs for ya today, New Orleans Garage Greats 1/2 and Louisiana Punk Groups of hte 60's 1/2......been a while (years) since I've played em, I recall they were pretty good, but you
know about my memory such as it is......

OK New Orleans Garage Band Greats Volume 1.....Moon Dawgs, Palace Guard, Gunga Dyns, and House of Lords all at least ring a faint bell with me, some others (Zoofs, Dr. Spec's Optical Illusion, Their Singing Bodies) don't but at least have a weirdness factor to their monacles that is often of promise. And Souls of the Slain check in with a version of "7 and 7 Is" which seems to me is climbing the charts quickly behind "Hey Joe" and "Gloria" for the absolute most covered tune of that there 60's decade.

Volume 2 of this set features a lot of holdovers frommthe first set, in fact most all of them, save perhaps I think Leather Pages, Better Half Dozen, and Yesterday's Children (with whom we are familar from some other comps and turn in a version of "Tobacco Road" here)  appear on the first set.

Volume 1 of "Louisiana Punk Groups of the 60's" brings us a bunch of bands from the other sets, also some others such as Jimmy & the Offbeats, The Roamin' Togas, and the Young Men, to name a few, and I hope you enjoyed that Souls of the Slain version of "7 and 7 Is" because it's on this one too....ahhh, comp overlap, not much we can do about it......Volume 2 of this set features a lot of the bands that we are, by now after 3 discs, familar with, and introduces us to the Bad Roads, Persian Market, Joe Deginda, and Al Michael & the Medallions, not one of which I know a blamed thing about.

Some pretty freaky band names and track names and the proximity of Louisiana to Texas leads me to
theorize that the Louisiana scene might have been something like the Texas Scene, Jr., and there would be nothing wrong with that......enjoy and be back tomorrow with something/somewhere else!
