Interval – Unknown Acetates (Mark II)
zz acetat4
This should be a joy for collectors, for sure it was a pain in the ass of the archivist*). Scratchy tunes from worn-out acetates, mostly from the US (I guess), with no clue on groups’ names and hardly an idea about song titles. I’m still wondering why the gems collected here didn’t make it to vinyl. Surprisingly, the overall audio quality ain’t that bad at all, and moreover, something like magic happened (to quote our DJ Bertha, don’t miss her!) as the mould and the dust clutched to the grooves sometimes give the nearly 50 years old artifacts a trippy, intensifying extra-kick (as on the instro track and on “My Girl Jill”). Not surprisingly the booklet to this comp doesn’t yield much of information. So here’s the challenge: I’ve added an "info-sheet" that can be returned after filling out some of the blank spaces. Any hint will be much appreciated, just don’t forget to state the source and your (nick)name. (I’ve put the original Youtube-links in the mp3-tags, but don’t expect to find much helpful information there). I will update the tracklist at this site every time a new list comes in. So don't mind the scratches and hiss, enjoy the show and help to shed some light in the darkest corner of the Garage! I promise I will pay full royalties once we know more about the artists and their exact addresses!

*) As too many tracks of the previous set had been compiled before, I’ve done a Mark II version featuring hopefully all unknown, unpublished tracks. Special thanks go out to my expert friend Michael Zoot at Garagetapes.blogspot for dividing known and unknown tracks / groups. I couldn’t have done it without him.

Suzette, what a good song that is - desperate to find out the artist

Re: Suzette

right, a real beauty, not exactly garage but I decided to feature it anyway..
with half of the singing done in French it could also be a French artist, although to my ears the singer seems to be more familiar with the English language... will we ever know? (thx for your lines)

Hallo Michael !

Nach längerer Abstinenz bin ich mal wieder im Internetz am Stöbern, und jetzt brauch ich ein paar Tage, um auf den neuesten Stand zu kommen...- Das Sortieren meiner Schallplatten ist damit erstmal (wieder) auf Eis gelegt, verdammt noch mal.

Aber Deine posts lassen sich- wie immer- nicht ignorieren, und auch die Acetate sind again high class. Wenn ich kurz mal stöber, dann muß ich feststellen, daß ich wohl weniger als die Hälfte davon selber besitze; warte- - -
und wenn ich noch zwei Sekunden stöber- - natürlich kein Einziges, nuscht, nada.
War ja klar.

Aber um so dankbarer bin ich für Deine posts !
Ich kann natürlich auch nichts Erhellendes dazu beitragen, also hör ich mir den Wahnsinn einfach weiter an...

Danke & liebe Grüße
aus dem nebligen Norden !

Hallo Joey (right?)

freut mich ungemein, Dir Unbekanntes und Unerhörtes servieren zu können; ich frage mich nur, ob Du Dir sicher bist, daß sich letztlich vielleicht nicht doch ein paar der vermeintlich ungepreßten Teile in Deiner Sammlung verstecken? Jedenfalls war das Kompilieren diesmal teuflisch, echt schwierig angesichts der fehlenden Gruppennamen und Titel, und jedes mal, wenn ich dachte, ich hätte das Set der ausschließlichen Unknowns zusammen, traf eine Fundmeldung ein (meistens von Michael Zoot von garagetapes, der ein viel besseres Hörgedächtnis als ich hat). NB: verlasse Dich nie auf Youtube! So habe ich bei Zippyshare gleich 5 mal gelöscht und neu hochgeladen und die Zusammenstellungen bis zum Abwinken immer wieder neu angehört, das ganze jeden Abend etwa zwei Wochen lang! Umso schöner zu hören, daß sich die Mühe anscheinend gelohnt hat....

Grüße aus dem seit einer Woche regnerischen Süden!

PS: Wenn Dir das Sortieren zu viel wird, dann steck die ganze Sammlung doch einfach in einen DHL-Container, Versandkosten Kiel - Bologna übernehme ich gerne!

I can't help out on naming any of these bands. Some of them sound familiar like I've heard other songs by them. But who knows?

. same thing happened to me too... you know you've heard it, but.... (that's why I said "a pain in the ass").... hope you liked the set!

Track 14

Tracks 14 is by the Olives on the Spar label. May be a different
mix, vocals sound the same. I have the 45, title appears like
this: Wha'Cha Gonna Do. I think Spar is related to the Hit records label.
