Correction #2

The Chosen Few Vol. 1 - Revisioned

Forgive me father for I have sinned...
As you might, or might not know, the last song on the original Chosen Few is by a 80s garage act posing as a 60s act. I think Erik Lindgren had a finger in that foul pie.
So in this revisioned version I replaced Thee Wylde Main-iacs with the more fitting Third Booth and their awesome I Need Love. I think it it plays great with the top-notch company.

  1. The song you replaced have not the distinctive sound of 60's and I think it's a crap .
    I'm sure you know the so-called lost tapes album of "public nuisance" don't you think it's a fake ?
    Keep on revamping those amazing comps.
    Thank you

  2. Thanks for replacing that bit of excrement that Erik L. Tried to pass of as the real thing. It's as cheap as a $5 hooker.

  3. I just wanted to let you know how much I love what you are doing. I, like many of us, discovered these garage classics through these comps and it's great to be able to go back to them and hear them with much superior sound quality.

  4. Thanks! Yankee :) Yes I feels like I'm rediscovering these splendid comps all over again! Word is that great 60s-comp-collector is gathering info on these old comps to release as a book. Check some vital info here:

    And Gyro - without your incredible work this would have been a much, much harder task. Hats off!

  5. Just discovered you via the fab Gyro and Twilight Zone. Keep up the good dirty greasy work!

    Talking about fake bands comped on 60s garage comps, the Wylde Main-iacs on Chosen Few vol.1 are another example. Here's what Erik Lindgren once told me about that:
    "Speaking of the bonus track ... we tossed that on as a joke on the first pressing of 1000 discs. That was actually a version that I produced in '78 that included Jeff Connolly (DMZ/Lyres) on vocals, Roger Miller (later of Mission of Burma) on bass and lead guitar, Boby Bear on drums (he played with Roger, Clint Conley and me in the pre-MOB Boston art punk band Moving Parts), and myself on guitar and piano. Don't think many people know about the cut nor the personnel involved. We got a good chuckle out of including that mystery track..."
