Gravel, anyone?

Back to normal after a one-day "hippie holiday"......really, surprised myself that I haven't put these 
yet, they are LOADED with tracks that I think are exclusive, pretty much to this set, each disc is stacked with 25-30 tracks, and I really don't remember seeing these aroundnet all THAT much (although I'm sure that is where I picked them up).....for the most part these are some rare and obscure shit, so if you missed out n your fix of such stuff yesterday, take a deep breath!

First volume includes 30 tracks (these are all North American bands, by the way), a HIGH number of which I think do not overlap much with the other comps of this ilk......The Spacemen, Unwritten Law, Sons of Sound, The Jads, The Moon-Dawgs, The Runaways (no not THAT Runaways!). In fact the most well-known band here might be Yesterday's Children, and there must have been about ten bands with that name, so this one could be unique as well!

TONS of rare stuff on Volume 2 as well, 30 tracks and MOST of them I think are found pretty muchy here....randomly: Hyperions, Try-Angle, Conner Family, Baroque Brothers, not to mention the Edicates from Columbus Ohio (about 45 minutes from my home) and Us Too from Fairfield Ohio (about an hour in the other direction) neither of which I had ever heard, prior to this set.

The third volume adds a bunch of equally obscure Candian bands, such as The Stitch In Tyme, The
Nocturnals, and the Esquires, to compliment thier USA bretheren such as The City Zu, The WordD, Dalek & the Blackstones, and Sugar Cube Blues Band...honestly, this is a fairly amazing undertaking, my hat is off to Kumquat May (no, really) Records for their ability to compile stuff THIS out-there without having to resort, really at all, to standard stuff that is comped regularly.....this is a GREAT set for those in the mood for TRUE obscurity.

Volume 4 is more of the same, I'll name a few at random again: Simple Simon & the Piemen, Baker Street Irregulars, The Goodsons, Dee & the Yeomen......Painted Ship who ar fairly frequently comped do turn up here, but if, in the course of 5 discs/150 or so tunes PAINTED SHIP is the BEST KNOWN act, you are REALLY onto some stuff that just doesn't turn up every day.

And so the series wraps up with volume 5. Threads of Fybre, 8th Wonders of the World, The Media, Southampton Story, The Hustlers 4, The Drop....I could go on and on, but really, you HAVE to get the idea here....there are a couple Painted Ship tracks that you may have heard before, and "Who Dat?" by the Jury is semi-known, other than that, well, this is for all you guys who were upset yesterday over the Jeffereson Airplane/Byrds/whatever ( if you WERE...I don't want to say that actually happened until it really does)!

Again, enjoy this set.....many sets portend to be rarities collections but "flesh out" the concept with
fairly well known or easy to acquire stuff.....not so in this case, these are five discs of stuff that I'd guess at least 90% of which is unique in my own personal collection, and that is saying something.  these quick!
