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many tracks of the previous set had been compiled before, I’ve done a Mark II version featuring hopefully all unknown, unpublished tracks.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.
