UC314a/b - 60s (mostly) uncomped - Scratching The Beer-Beat-Barrel, Teil 10


Who would have thought I’ dig up 50 more German tidbits in just 3 months time (volume # 12 was launched in December 2019)? Well, you only have to scratch the Beer-Beat-Barrel deep down to the bottom,  sort the wheat from the chaff (i.e. separate the Schlager molasses from the Beat influenced 45s), and then look what’s uncompiled / un-anthologized and what is not: Here’s what is left: overheard and underrated ditties you sure have looked down on in the 60s (would you ever have bought a Lou von Burg or Peter Horton single?). I admit, many tracks of my collection are borderline to Schlager and Humpta, anyway, after 55 years many sound quite interesting and many deliver hilarious lyrics in excellent dada-English the Germans are famous for and I love so much. I packed some spoken bits from the Defa-film “Heisser Sommer” plus a few live tracks and some romantic songs in the mix, I hope you’ll dig (the words to “Der Regen singt ein Lied” and “Straße der Sehnsucht" are actually very nice). Special thanks go out to Maik Murano, Uwe Dieterich, Antenna Mondo X, Dritter Polizist and to Rüdiger Osterman of the Shot Guns (augezeichneter Geschmack und bestes Gespür, meine Herren!); if you browse their youtube channels you might find more appealing sounds from Germany and surrounding nations. Now let’s see how long it takes to Teil 11… In the meantime, enjoy the Krauts, comrades!

eYeGeNeYe presents: Telstar (again)


This is a long overdue ode to my all time hero Joe Meek. Back who wrote and produced this tidbit that would soon become probably the most famous instrumental of the 60s worldwide. I wonder if he knew (remember we’re talking about a true genius, tho’) .
I had posted the original 32 tracks set on April27, 2014, and in the meantime I’ve collected more Telstars, so here we go with 60 Stellar Versions (actually it’s only 59 as I had to eliminate 1 track from CD#1 for space reasons (memory space, i. e).
Thanks go out to Phil Milstein and his blog "Probe is Turning-On the Peoeple" (http://www.philxmilstein.com/probe),to my pal Michael Zoot from the famous garagetapes.blogspot and to youtube channel Pàter Fulaniti (https://www.youtube.com/user/SanBisolvon)
I’m really curious if you manage to listen to all monothematic pieces of this double set.  I admit, I had listened to both CDs in a row, then decided to change 2 tracks on CD#1, but I didn’t make it to give one more final listen. Maybe in 5 years time, when I will have completely forgotten about my the updated Telstar effort. So again, buckle up, check ignition, and push the go-go-button! (and don’t send me any more versions, I won’t handle it!)

eYeGeNeYe presents: Zebras and Monkeys in Pakistan


If you liked my “Sophisticated Savage” series, I’m sure this set will be appreciated, too. I’m not happy with the "Popcorn"-tag (as it makes me think of Bubble Gum), but I understand why Lux Interior struggled to find an more adapt term for his collections, so I like to call it “Garage Soul”, even tho’ that might be misleading as well. In any case, the tracks I featured are pretty wild and some are extremely fast (try Mel Smith & Night Riders’ " Pretty Plaid Skirt" or  Samantha Jones’ "I’m Minnie”) and many are dedicated to various animals from the Jungle. Also, this set introduces a record in going back in time, starting off with a piece from 1956! I wonder if the same people that bought these rare singles listened to Frank Sinatra? All tracks were posted at Navaro Joe’s youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/AcidMod63) which is inactive since 4 years now. Go to that site for more examples of Garage Soul. I hope you’ll dig the unhinged jungle sounds!

UC313 - 60s (mostly) Uncomped - Girls with a Beat, Vol. 17


Unlike the intense research job for all my other compilation series, when you’re looking for girls’ songs you will fish loads of unheard and uncompiled records out of the immense sea of female Pop. So welcome back in the glorious company of girls and ladies with a Beat. You’ll get 90 tracks done by famous and not so famous female singers and artists, mostly all never compiled, some scarce as hens’ teeth. I’m happy to see my gals have gathered from all the globe, from Japan to Uruguay, from Turkey to New Zeeland, and from Mexico to Yugoslavia. Even  2 records from the 70s (‘70 and ‘76) have sneaked in, and I wonder if you can spot them in the mix.
So just before I’ll drown myself in the land of honey and ambrosia for the next week, let me add that I hope I will meet you there, somewhere between female Soul sounds and songs of desperate teenage love (and lust). And remember: Girls cry faster than Boys, and when they do, I hope this triple set will prove they’ll get all it out just like their male counterparts. Suffer and enjoy!
PS: Special thanks go out to my San Diego friend Glynis Wards since I nicked a few tunes from her "Crayons to Perfume” radio show for WFMU (you can  listen to it / download at "https://wfmu.org/playlists/CE )

UC312a/b - 60s (mostly) Uncomped - Belgian Truffles, part 4


In Belgium, say in 1964, people were still crazy about the Twist and Shadows instros  while else were youngsters took their kicks out of “You really got me”. So I guess it’s a bit like the guys (Les Cousins) on the cover: you’re still glued to your Honda bike while others drive a Ford Convertible. Not a bad luck tho’, and probably enjoyable the same. For Beat aficionados and garage heads like I am, this means we get our daily dope from recordings done in 1970 or even in 1974, as they still sound most intriguing and like they were made in 1967. I hope this double set proves my words. If not, you can turn it off after #20, as tracks come in chronological order. Although the Belgium band can’t concur with, say, the Outsiders, Q65 or The Golden Earrings from the Dutch neighborlands (or the Lords, the Rattles and The Phantom Brothers from Germany), I promise it’s all solid, original, and, above all, 100% uncompiled sounds (and a lot of nice picture covers in the booklet!). I’m sure you’ll dig. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

UC311 60s (mostly) Uncomped - US Garage Gems, Pt. 48



As Vol. #47 was posted only two weeks ago (Feb. 5th), this new sequel proves that there’s still heaps of fish in the (inter) net. Scarce group info and just a few pictures prove the same: This is rare stuff! Freddy Cannon apart, I think all tracks have never shown up anywhere ie. are uncomped and unanthologized , and there’s plenty of ?s to the identity and whereabouts of most of the groups and artists. Probably, the rarest finds are The Dimension 45, The Fifth Order acetate and an advertising disc issued by the “Health Fuel” company to sell their gear to clean up backyard swimming pools, can you believe it? In the middle, The Watchables who might as well have had another name or never existed but deliver 2 cool originals and a pretty wild Midnight Hour (badly fixed by myself in the middle part and at the spoiled ending). I wonder if we ever know more about those groups.
As usual, tracks come in chronologic order (from 59 to 71), strictly mono from honest Beat to weird Psychedelia, I hope you’ll enjoy the trip!

Sophisticated Savage, pts. 4 + 5


I told you I was working on a sequel to my Sophisticated Savages sets posted shortly before, but now it’s too late and here we go. Again, many of the tracks I’ve collected were made in the 5os, and the rest in the early 60s or, at least, I thought they incorporated the same spirit. Fever, St James Infirmary, 60 Tons and the Work Song are the blueprints, or staples, and in fact you’ll hear various versions. Again, all songs pick up somewhere between Soul, RnR, Doo Wop, Gospel and more genres, commonly dubbed PopCorn. And I guess all songs are good listening fun. If you liked Sophisticated Savage vols. 1 – 3, I hope you’ll dig this set equally. Take a dive into the pre-Garage scene, prepare for greasy brass sounds and enjoy!!

eYeGeNeYe presents: Sophisticated Savage parts 1 - 3


For two reasons, this set is out of scope of my 60s Uncomped’s concept. First, half of the tracks I’ve collected were recorded in the 50s,(even back in 1954 !) so they can’t be filed under "Garage". Nevertheless, they have a common denominator. I guess it’s teenage urge, fast production, and fun. Honestly, I don’t know how to tag these wild and passionate sounds that pick from the most different genres such as Soul, R’R, Gospel, Mambo, Cha Cha, Big Band, Ska et al, sometimes tagged as “Popcorn” though I’m not happy with that word.
All tracks file come from one youtube channel “Sophisticated Savage” https://www.youtube.com/user/dirtyquiff  so this is the second reason for the out-of-scopeness of this triple set. I picked the uncomped tracks, and you sure will find many more gems at that site. Moreover, as the yt channel is dead since 2 years now, I’ve started to do Savage #4 with similar tunes recorded in the 50s and early 60s. You’ll hear from that further on.
But now, let’s dive into the wacky worlds of Jungle RnR, Rhinoceroses and Ape Men, and let’s do some fab new dances like the “Peel the Banana”. And you won’t miss fuzz guitar sounds as the saxes are wailin’ out greatly and there’s some wild skin bashing, too. If you love Garage, I’m sure you’ll dig!

UC310 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped- US Garage Gems Vol. 47


Back again in the US, and I hope you are not afraid of brass. In fact, many of the tunes of this set border the line between Garage and Soul sounds (or should I say White and Black?), so ride your Pony, Do the Jelly Jelly, and don’t fight it, even if the sax player is out of tune. And when you body’s dead from dancing, your mind might enjoy some good old Psychedelia, I guess. (and in the end it seems that nothing has changes since the Cartakers sung "Everyday it's the same old way / People talk with nothing to say")
Again, (mostly) all groups I have collected are “NeverHeard of”s , and (mostly) all tracks have never been compiled neither by the official labels nor by private collectors. Bloggers and youtube friends are thankfully mentioned in the booklet. Get it on and enjoy, brothers and sisters!

eYeGeNeYe prod. - - Captain Scarlet - extended version


Some wild & wacky stuff from outer space England, though maybe not exactly what you’d expect… Let me take you on a most exciting trip with Cpt. Scarlet and his crew, meet and avoid the Mysterons, and STAND BY FOR ACTION! I’m sure you will be a fiend for Gerry Anderson’s TV series, so I won’t waist words. Visit https://shop.gerryanderson.co.uk/  for some gadgets and DVDs, there’s quite a few wacky video clips out at youtube, as well.
Barry Grey has a 40 track CD "Barry Grey – Stand by for Action” CD (available for 95€). I hope I picked the “Best of…”, mixing some space FX-sounds and dialogs in between.
Tracks and audio snippets # 1-  # 5 come from the Captain Scarlet TV series (1966-67), and I’ve added some other fine works of the Barry Grey / Gerry Anderson team (Fireball, 1963 -  Stingray, 1964-65 - Joe 90, 1968, and UFO, 1970).

Stand by for Action!!! And remember: Captain Scarlet is Indestructible!!!

SPECIAL ALARM: as a protection against the Mysterons, this CD will AUTOERASE itself after first play!
