Back From The Grave flipsides #5


Buried Alive #5


Look out - this one is vile. It is terrible. I gathered all the worst stinker flips on one comp and phiuuu does it ever suck.
But this concludes the collection of flips from the eminent Back From The Grave-series, save for two songs whose 45s are yet to be found.
Have a nice saturday.



Back From The Grave flipsides #4


Buried Alive #4


This is what I wrote about this part on the G45 board:
"The working title for this was simply 'Straight-Up Garage' which it for the most part is. Most of these are well known in this community and there's not that many surprises.
I had not heard Me And Them Guys' killer instrumental - awesome stomp.
Same goes for 'One Pine Box' that I've been longing to hear since I bought my first Grave some 20 years ago.
The third (of the comps four) instro 'Rick O'Shay' was also new to my ears. Nice mover."

This part definitely has some classic garage on it. All is great to genius garage.
Enjoy.

Highs In The Mid Sixties #13


Highs In The Mid Sixties #13


Not as many classic cuts as on #11, but much better than #12.
There is a lot of REAL nice garage like Chessmen, Briks, Fanatics, Venturie '5', Bards, Barons, Roots, Night Crawlers and Zone V. I think I had to use one track from the original vinyl comp, but the best songs are in excellent shape, better than ever.

I will wait with the last two Texas HITMS because I got some problem finding good rips. I will make them later.
Please tell me if there is anything else you'd like, or if you want me to recreate a fave of yours.
Have a nice weekend, friends!



Highs In The Mid Sixties #12


Highs In The Mid Sixties #12


This one is not as great as #11. And the scan is shitty. And some rips ain't too hot.
But you will get a scan anyway, and the best songs are in fine order so you better not complain, bubba!
The best songs on here is slightly acid-burnt. Ech, take a lizzen yoself..



Highs In The Mid Sixties #11


Highs In The Mid Sixties #11


Wow. Brothers and sisters, this is a really great bunch of songs right here!
And (I think) I found good rips to them all.
We get Larry & the Blue Notes' CLASSIC hysteric In And Out (that has been on oh so many-o comps).
You will enjoy Kit & the Outlaws rebellious EPIC Don't Tread On Me.
You will be calmed by the soothing sound of Chants' Hypnotized.
The camp spooky fun of Judgement Day by Esquires will haunt you. 
And this is just on the first side - the flip is just as great!




Texas Punk From The Sixties Vol. 2


Texas Punk From The Sixties #2



This is better than the first part (posted below). Released by Eva in 1985.
We get both versions of Kempy & the Guardians' Love For A Price and let's not forget
Circus' Bad Seed which is IMHO Back From The Grave-worthy.





Texas Punk Groups From The Sixties Vol. 1


Texas Punk Groups From The Sixties Vol. 1


When I bought the 90s Eva's Sixties Archives-CDs (that compiled the regional LPs released by Eva in the early 80s - Michigan, Florida, Texas..) I was stunned by the 'high-quality' of the discs. Both by the track-selection and that they sounded pretty good.
Now I'm not so sure anymore. 25% will rock your socks off but the rest is so-so or downright boring.
I still love it a lot. This one was released in 1982.

Boulders Vol. 4


Boulders Vol. 4


Alright, back to our dear friend hoarder/compiler Dave Gibson. Dontcha just love his covers? Ya know, he made 'em all himself! Total greatness in my book. 
Here we have some real raw & crude garage (check out Beer's Some Kinda Rich Girl) and some cool high-end punk aimed for the billboard. We also get another track who got reprised on Back From The Grave (They Prefer Blondes) and one who showed up on Garagepunk Unknowns (Sacrifice).
Released in 1982.


Highs In The Mid Sixties Vol. 4


Highs In The Mid Sixties Vol. 4


HITMS was always such a frustrating experience for me. Some real cool tracks but mixed with duds, pretty shitty sound but nice package.
This starts out great with 3 jaw-dropping punkers (ok, Shaprels is more high-end psych..) but it ends with the silliest song in the universe.
The album's got some real nice frat-rockers tho, and some cute pop and the mighty hyper-cool Todds I Want Her Back.
So about 25-30% is hot fuckin garage and the rest is just..nice (except for that horrid Mr. Sullivan..)
And it was here the quality of garage-comps started to deteriorate. Instead of getting your mind blown, you got your senses slightly breezed.

But Highs are an interesting document of the garage-times of yore, some 30 years ago.

Pebbles Vol. 9


Pebbles Vol. 9


Helloooo there, there is a whooole heap of pop here! But not only that, we also get to hear the doom-filled anguish of Out Of My Hands, and Banshees' frantic Project Blue, and the testosterone-bomb Gotta Get Some. Not only that, we also get the killer 2-sider Too Bad/Blue Girl by Bad Roads.
Some people got some problem with It's All Meat. Not me. It is a glorious piece of double-entrende with wyld fuzzzz and swinging drums and a very horny singer.

You might think that the Endd sounds like shit. Sadly, it does. First of all - I had to snatch it from an old Pebbles CD, second - the original sounds crappy in itself. One of the worst mastered piece of genious around.



Pebbles #11


Pebbles #11


One of the most versatile parts of Pebbles! We've got crude punk like Third Evolution, Barking Spyders and Modds, we've got suave psych like Illusion, Galaxies IV and the Looking Glass - and get 3 sweaty tracks by The Leather Boy!! Did I mention Aardvarks? All killers here baby, an absolute corker!

I took the liberty to correct an old mistake - the original LP was supposed to feature Don't Lose Your Mind by Galaxies IV but somewhere along the used the flip instro instead. 
Well, I took the best version of Don't Lose Your Mind I had for you to hear in its full glory!

I couldn't find a good rip of Milan (The Leather Boy's) You Gotta Have Soul, just so you know..
ENJOY!

Boulders #3


Boulders #3


I'll tell you right away - I didn't proof-listen for shit this time. I just know that the bitrates are OK (192 or over) and that it is the right songs. I'll listen to it later tonight when I take a stroll with my dogs.
But I think that it's fine, definitely better than the original waxing.
And the music itself? Well it's a handfull of classics! We got some crude garage, some high-prod punkers, some hippy-dippy swingers and a couple of covers.
Tim Warren snatched three (3) tracks from this for his own series and one track from Boulders #2. 
That is in my book a quality stamp.

Glimpses Vol. 1


Glimpses Vol. 1


The guy who made the cover for this also made the covers for Pebbles 16 & 17 and the Mind Blowers posted below..
The songs were a loving selection of one Dave Walters. It was released in 1982.
Read more about Glimpses here.
I should also tell you that I had some problems finding good rips. Some tracks are used from the original vinyl rips of Glimpses and does not sound too hot.
Wellington Arrangement has an ugly digital clip in it that I missed. I correct that later. Pardon.





Pebbles Vol. 7


Pebbles Vol. 7


Just like vol. 8, this is jam-packed with classic punk together with wimpy pop and teen rock'n'roll, not to mention the freakbeat Craig and their I Must Be Mad. As I remember it there was some confusion as to where the Craig came from. Well, they were from Birmingham, UK.
Released in 1980.




Recreating old comps #25


Pebbles #8


Wow, there's a lot of classics here. I used to think that the poppy songs were terrible, but now I am older and wiser. We get both bona-fide top-shelf punkers and some tasty uptempo pop and let's not forget ? & the Mysterians' sweeter-than-honey Make You Mine

Back From The Grave flipsides #3


Buried Alive #3


This is what I wrote about it at the G45 forum: 
"The working name for this was "Half Drunk At 4 AM With Friends And Neighbours" and is for the most part a rather drowsy affair - but no clunkers here, just lazy-ass (or half-assed) garage. It sure demands an attentive ear."
So it is not full crazy-ass killers. More like ballads and downers and some poppier stuff. It is a real mixed bag. But it should make a good listen and hey - who don't want to hear what's hiding behind those raunchy garage 45s on the legendary Back From The Grave-volumes?

Correction #3



Ain't the first time, and it won't be the last - I'm sending some updated and better versions some of the songs. Please replace you old files with these new ones.
Especially the Preachers Who Do You Love on Pebbles #1 - I fucked up and included Mr. Lucky & the Gamblers Take A Look At Me. You find the right song in this zip.
The other ones are just sonic upgrades.



Back From The Grave flipsides #2


Buried Alive #2


More flipsides from the Back From The Grave-series.
This part is focused on frat-rock, covers and good ol' rock'n'roll. There's 3 - 4 punkers in here, but mostly it is just party rock.

Update




Hey guys and gals. I'm currently trying to find better rips for the comps already posted and to correct nested faulty files.
One incredibly stupid thing was to include Take A Look At Me instead of Who Do You Love on Pebbles #1.
Second thing is that my converter (who makes mp3 files) ripped the shit to thread in 128 instead of 192.
Now I'll try to replace them with 320s.. Damn it..
If any of you spot stupid things I might be coin, don't be afraid to tell me.

So sit tight and I'll come back in a coupla days. Hopefully with an upgraded version of Nightmares In The Underworld 1 & 2.

Back From The Grave flipsides #1


Buried Alive #1


You might get a kick out of this. I compiled (with a lot of help from my friends) a 5-part disc-set of flips from the tracks featured on the notorious Back From The Grave series. 
Some flips are storming punkers, some is just pedestrian teen beat, some is frat-rock and some is absolute stinkers. I tried to keep some kind of theme on each part. Why? Because I can!
The theme on this is loser garage, moody punkers and doomy ballads. It is my favorite.
Anyway, they are all here except for two tracks that are simply not available even for the most hardcore collectors .

Hope you like.


Punk Classics EP Vol. 4


Punk Classics EP Vol. 4


The fourth fucker, released in '87. I ran into some problem trying to find a decent rip of Don Curry's Bony Maronie Revisited. No luck. I had to go for the version found on the Punk Classics CD (released in 95) and it sounds pretty horrible..
Texas is the theme on this volume. Cool selection but was this the coolest songs they could find? I mean, Texas is a veritable garage treasure trove!
But as I said - this is all cool stuff.
There was a fifth and final volume in this series but since it was not requested, and that it was impossible for me at the moment to find good rips, and because the song selection is six covers - I just decided to stop here.
A huuuuge 'thank you' to Gyro for providing a good 50% of the songs. I couldn't have done it without him.


Punk Classics EP Vol. 3


Punk Classics EP Vol. 3


Semi-crappy scan.. I could've straightened that shit but couldn't be bothered. Too full of hamburgers and cola at the moment.
Seems like this volume got its eyes on psych. Still a nice selection. K Lawson & 4 More always do a number on my ears with their metallic Halfway Down The Stairs, but I think it is supposed to sound like that.


Punk Classics EP Vol. 2


Punk Classics EP Vol. 2


Here's number two. Just spotted that pesky little camera water stamp in the lower right corner. Such is the life for half-assed re-releasing comp-slobs like me.
Soybomb tells us this was released in '86 and it is full of cool tracks.


Punk Classics EP Vol. 1


Punk Classics EP Vol. 1


Sorry for the bad scan. Best I could find. I found good rips instead.
I know absolutely nothing about these series. Released by Garageband in '84 thru '87 and shockfull of killer punk/psych. Just slapped together side by side.
If anyone have more info, please share.

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.




Mind Blowers


Mind Blowers


Ech, what a crappy scan.. sometimes it is harder to find a good scan than better sounding files for the comps in question. Too bad because this cover is actually pretty good looking in it's original form.
Anyhoo, this was released in '83 in think and is a rather interesting bunch of track. Some straight punkers, some psych, big name artist Doors '65 demo Go Insane and 13th Floors 45 version of Tried To Hide. A mild psychedelic feel to this album but it's not acid-burnt like Psychedelic Disaster Whirl or Acid Dream #1.


EDIT:
Something was wrong with the Doors track - changing it and re-upping a better link as we speak.

EDIT 2:
This link should things right.


01 Ed Wool & The Nomads - I Need Somebody 
02 Doors - Go Insane
03 Undecided? - Make Her Cry 
04 Liverpool Set - Seventeen Tears To The End
05 Tropics - As Time's Gone
06 Olivers - I Saw What You Did 
07 Id - Boil The Kettle Mother
08 13th Floor Elevators - Tried To Hide
09 Guilloteens - Wild Child
10 Bump - Winston Build The Bridge
11 Traveling Salesmen - Days Of My Years 
12 Spike-Drivers - Baby Won't You Let Me Tell You How I Lost My Mind
13 49th Parallel - Labourer
14 Mustard Men - I Lost My Baby

CURSES!

So the first fuck-up has arrived, the confusion of the Psychedelic Unknown EPs covers. I Urge you to discard the old ones and replace them with these - the right ones!

The first EP simply had the wrong cover.
The second I switched only because I wanted the more cutesey pink cover. That way we also got three different covers and that is so practical in soooo many ways.
Oh yeah - the covers of (at least) the two first EPs was 'pressed' with different coloured covers. Hence the fuck-up.

And I double-posted the third EP just to have them gathered in one post. To help confusion, you know.

Psychedelic Unknowns EP Vol. 3


Psychedelic Unknowns EP Vol. 3


Okey, checked it up and it seems the first two parts were released in '79 and sold out almost instantly.
And LP with an edited version of the two first EPs was released sometime in 1980-81. [edit: I have read the LP was released as early as 1979]
From what I gathered, this last EP was released in '79. It is a bunch of pretty downer punkers along with Ognir's mid-tempo stomp I Found A New Love, and Tracers wild rendition of She Said Yeah.


01 Dagenites - I'm Gone Slide
02 4 Of Us - You're Gonna Be Mine
03 Tracers - Watch Me
04 Bush - I'm Wanting Her
05 Ognir & the Nite People - I Found A New Love
06 State Of Mid - Move
07 Flares - Forever
08 Tracers - She Said Yeah

Psychedelic Unknowns EP Vol. 2


Psychedelic Unknowns EP Vol. 2



Part 2 and KILLER all the way! I even dig Dave Diamonds wacky Diamond Mine! Not very psychedelic at all (save Dave's plastic DJ-babble and that ain't psychedelic either).
Yesterday's Children's To Be Or Not To Be is an ol' fave of mine, but the whole set is incredible!


01 Starfires - I Never Loved Her
02 King's Ransom - Shame
03 Caretakers Of Deception - X+Y=13
04 Jury - Who Dat?
05 First Crow To The Moon - Spend Your Life
06 We The People - In The Past
07 Painted Ship - Frustration
08 Squires - Going All The Way
09 Front Line - Got Love
10 Nobles - Something Else
11 Yesterday's Children - To Be Or Not To Be
12 Dave Diamond & the Higher Elevation - The Diamond Mine



Psychedelic Unknowns EP Vol. 1


Psychedelic Unknowns EP Vol. 1



Compiled by Billy Synth and released in '79? (I've seen sources saying 82).
Solid bunch of fried classics, such as Calico Wall, Ides and Split Ends monstrous Rich With Nothin'. Oh - there's two version of Rich With Nothin', one with a crazy delay during the solo and one completely dry, the former used on the original EP so that is what I used too.
Watch out tho as there is a real turd hiding in this treasure chest: Cosmic Rock Show. 


01 Calico Wall - I'm A Living Sickness
02 Sound Sandwitch - Apothecary Dream
03 Daybreakers - Psychedelic Siren
04 Split Ends - Rich With Nothing
05 Nervous Breakdowns - I Dig Your Mind
06 Evil I - Love Conquers All
07 Cosmic Rock Show - Rising Sun
08 Thee Sixpence - My Flash On You
09 Iron Gate - Feelin' Bad
10 Ides - Psychedelic Ride
