UC275 – US Garage Gems , Vol. 39 - 60s (mostly) uncomped
UC275 – US Garage Gems , Vol. 39|
Once again in the land of Garage (or …of boxes, as US residents would say). I’m happy the groups I‘ve selected hail from nearly all American nations, from LA (Louisiana) to WA(shington). (Nearly) all of the tracks you’ll hear come off 45 singles which have never compiled. Again, I’ve widened the time frame a bit including tracks from the early 60s one might tag “Pre-Brit Invasion” as they sound very much alike what you would expect to hear in England’s clubs and caverns at about the same time. I.e. Garage. If these tunes are not your cup of tea, just skip the first tracks of each CD. Moreover, I’ve enclosed some wacky tracks that slightly remind Soul and alike. At any rate, to my ears all groups blast out a highly original, “American” sound. I hope you’ll dig my selection.
PS: Huge thanks go out to all bloggers and youtubers who generously share their treasures and are mentioned in the booklet.
PPS: if there’s anybody out there who reads the booklet and maybe even cuts/ pastes the pages for a CD-libretto, please let me know.

That Weeds 45 is amazing, for sure.
The Internet Archive links are awesome, fast downloading and none of the garbage some of the other sites throw at you.

Happy New Year! May be all on Internet but you make the BIG effort to organize & put it all together! Thanx! Then get to listen & enjoy your work.
"New" U/L system is great but what are the other 3-4 Files listed? Need those too?
Ciao! For now.

Re: Great one!
hi mtxj, I'm sure you'll dig the new US set (the other fies are not necessary, just d/l the .rara file listed first place)
