eYeGeNeYe presents: GottaHaveMoreTunes


When I found the youtube channel aptly named "GottaHaveMoreTunes" I hit a gold mine. Whoever is behind the desk knows to dig up rare gems and he sure’s got a great taste.  More than 1,6000 tracks, from early RnR to Bubblegum and from Doo Wop to Psychedelia, so borders are slightly wider than the ones of my US Garage Gems series. The bulk of the records I selected come from forgotten crooners, desperate RnR singers, "Song Poem" producers as well as second guard girl groups  and some pretty much unknown combos often consisting of unnamed (studio) musicians. And all tracks are (totally?) UNCOMPED beauties, I swear, set aside by the Garage community and overheard by the aficionados of 60s records. The alphabetical order generates a refreshing varicosity of sounds, at least to my ears, and I don’t mind if a song from 59 is followed by a tune from 69. What is common to all rare records tho’ is a most appealing over all “sound with some Soul”. I guess this is a general approach shared by the unknown youtube runner, so compliments and thanks again for posting.  I’m sure you’ll dig my selection!
