I admit I have widened the scope of the Garage concept for a little bit, including records that sound like Blues-Garage, Bubblegum- Garage, Rockabilly- Garage, and R&B- Garage, plus Anti Vietnam songs and a group from Belgium (who recorded in the US). I believe, The Elastik Band and The Rainy Daze apart, you hardly will ever have heard of the rest of the bunch (not even the Fantabulous Jags?). Most features come from 500 piece pressed 45s, acetates ,and demos and live recordings (so pardon some bad audio), and many artists hail from unsuspected states. Surprisingly, I found quite a lot of facts on the bands plus some teasing pictures. But for now let’s start off with the Marbles who are engaged in a true Garage recording. Right on!!
