To celebrate the 50th edition of this series, many more or less infamous groups and artists have gathered. In first line, some from the 50s and early 60s so too early to be tagged as Garage groups tho’ they all embody the same Garage spirit and kick out the same energy of their later descendants. Our further expedition takes us down into the “real scene” and we can dig up some shiny, unheard or at least underrated, gems such as by Johnny Gee, the Beagles LP or Bumpy & the Jaguars. After the happening, our trip ends softly with tunes that take us to psychedelic meadows, right near (tho’ not too near!) to some hippies and jug bands. I’m proud all tracks of this jubilee set are uncomped with only a few featured on some hard to get anthologies. I’m sure even Garage aficionados will appreciate some fresh tunes you only get here. And we’re far from scraping the bottom of the gold mine, I mean, so let’s wait for volume # 51. Cheerio!
