We stand on guard for thee, Oh Canada!

Unless I find a straggler or two, I have pretty much wrapped up my regional garage/psych sets from
 the USA in the 1960's.......fear not, I have LOTS MORE American "nugget rock" that we'll get to later, it is just not grouped "regionally", and that, currently, seems to be a gimmick that many are enjoying. So, lets check a few "regions" around the globe, investiage THEIR 1960's garage/psych scenes and compare them to the US (WARNING: A lot will be foreign language stuff, which as I've stated before, I LOVE, but I know many don't).......

Anyway, I LOOOOOOOOOVE Canada, always have. had some GREAT times up there, from visiting the great cities of Montreal and Quebec as a teenager, to hanging in Windsor while waiting for the Vikings to take on the Lions in Detroit, Toronto, Niagra Falls.......never had a bad time in Canada. As for music (in general), well, let's just say I've never had a bad time in Canada (Rush? REALLY?......April Wine was ok for awhile, I Mother Earth could be great, Neil Young of course is Neil Young, and other than that, well, they DO have good beer up there, lovely casinos, legal prostitution, in general kinder, more polite habiants than the States, some excellent restaurants, lovely scenery)........really do LOVE Canada! So they are a logical place to start with a couple of these garage rock comps, the two sets I have here are VERY different, hope you enjoy them.

First up we have "Great White North", crammed with 24 better-than-average garage and psych
rockrs......perhaps from other sets (or if you happen to be Canadian), you'll be familar with Stu Mitchell's "Acid", 49th Parallel, David, and Quiet Jungle, they've all been comped to a degree.......this is a really good set, I think, please give feedback on the now-International garage comp extraavganza.


The second disc we've got here is "Rumble-Quebec Garage Beat 1966-67".......French language, be forewarned, but (to me) most enjoyable, I like it a lot, and besides, Les Fleaux cover that little-known, rarely-covered chestnut, "Gloria"! Anyway I like both these sets a good bit, hoping you do too....when we go international, there will probably be some you like alot, some not so much, unless of course you are as open-minded as myself, which is nearly an impossibility!
