Cicadelic 60's

Really should have posted this one before now, it's rare, it's informative, it's entertaining, and several
of it's discs are broken down themattically.....aOT of bands are examined in broader depth than just a single track, which I usually think is an interesting thing (now always the most listenable, but at least interesting......

DIsc 1, entitled "Don't Put Me On", features a bunch of bands, in genral represented by two tracks each, not sure if each is a single A/B side, but very obscure and interesting all the way down the line.....We have House of Commons, Kings Court, Pagens, and best of all Felix' take on "A Whiter Shade of Pale" which is not like anything at least I have ever heard.

Disc 2 is called "Never Existed", why? I have no clue.....Persian Market offers up a version of "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White",the Chaparrals clock in with "Blues from a Jefferson Airplane, and the final 5 tracks on the disc are Alternate Versions, Demos, and Unedited Studio Versions from Basement Wall, Penthouse 5, Chevelle V, David Sanborn, and Lemon Fog....a must for completists!

The third disc is 1963-65 Folk-Rock, not a HUGE favorite of mine, acts include the Sting Rays, Beats, Mods, London Knights, Maltees Four, FBI, and Shillings.....I bet for some this is a treasure chest, me, not really so much.

Disc 4 is called "The Psychedelic Sixties" and brings a slew of rarities, Laughing Kind, Living Ends
, Captain Crunch & the Bunch, Cellar Dwellers, Brother Love Congregation and lots more. Rare, rare stuff, barely ANY overlap with any other sets I've given out.

Now, Disc 5 changes gears completely....."Unreleased Garage Band Demos, 1966-68".......dominated by the Missing Links (9 tracks), and Lemon Drops (6 tracks), with the Nuchez and Morning Dew thrown in, this is stuff you'll probably hear no where else......might not WANT TO either, but again, it's the rare, the obscure, that we seek out, and an unreleased batch of tracks from Missing Links certainly fits that definition.

Disc 6, also is enititled "The Psychedelic Sixties", but features only two bands, District Six (any "Hunger Games" fans?) and the Nite Owls......Need to point out that District Six brings us their version of "7 & 7 Is", which is still miles behind "Gloria" and "Hey Joe" in THAT particular competition.

VOLUME 7 regionalizes things, "From Texas to Tucson", as I've spotlighted both regions before, maybe there wilsome cross-over here, but not coming blazin back.....we get the Shandells Inc, Shadows, Rocks, Lewallen Brothers, Feathers, and The Marades....again, listenable ahing if not interesting!

The 8th and final disc goes back to random rare tracks, from a variety of obscure acts, Wild THings,
Quintette Plus, Unknowns, and Sensacionals.......

A good set here.....not so much one you'll be playing time and again, but for sure one of historical curiosity.
