Diggin For Gold, Vols 1-5

This is a set of ten discs, from here, there and everywhere, again, quite obscure.....little what we'd
refer to as "psych" on this one, more garage/beat/punk-rockin stuff......again, I sense very little overlap, but this stuff runs together in my mind, it is POSSIBLE that there is TONS of overlpa with some of my other sets, but it doesn't seem that way.....breaking it up in two parts this time (shoulda done so with "Syde Tryps" as well), but these are vinyl rips and FAIRLY skimpy, so it won't take me THAT long five discs today, five more tomorrow, capice?

Well, Volume 1 gives us some semi-familair names from other comps, such as the Beathovens, Thor's Hammer, Other Side, and Blue Aces, not to mention lesser know (to me at least) combos ala Horanges, The Throb, and the Principals....sometimes I swear my posts must just sound like "shopping lists" of goofball band names, but it hasn't been THAT long since I've listened to some of these and they really are quite rewarding.

Volume 2 returns a couple tracks from Thor's
Hammer, also the Unforgettable Amnesiacs (geez), The Inn-Sect, and Sound LTD Set's quite cool "Sunshine World". The Rolling Beats, The Torereos, and Thursday's Child bring interesting efforts to the dance.

On Volume 3 the Rythym Checkers give us a fairly frantic "Long Tall Sally", also we get some interesting stuff from The Moondogs, Leather Souls, Soul Agents, and Cool Stove, among some others.  Volume 4 gives us the Richard Wright Group (Pre-Pink Floyd? I would check except I can't imagine a circumstance under which I would care any less), The Hoochie Coochies, The Specatacles, and the Shanagaans......."interesting" is the word I've used the most here, but this set is also quite listenable and entertaining, even if maybe a little on the long side (five discs might have been fine, I don't know).

Wrapping up today's post will be Volume 5, with tracks both "interesting" and "good" from Toni McCann & the Blue Jays, The Morloch, Hugo, and Pilgrims Five.......Historians should bust another nut over this set, lost of non-overlapped stuff, and FIVE more full discs of it tomorrow!
