This new set is to show that the treasure trove of not yet compiled garage tracks still is a bottomless well, to quote the Kan-Dells (although their tune here seems more a hymn to a nightclub of dubious reputation). As usual, I’ve picked some 60s sounds from the US that hopefully are new to your ears, starting with two innocent but nice Chuck Berry covers to some classic Brit-invasion tunes and some most hilarious frat sounds. Be warned though since the party might end in desperate tragic, as the last 4 tracks taken from a rare 33 rpm acetate prove. Enjoy nevertheless!
