UC289 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped – US Garage Gems Vol. 42

It seems that the river (which might have become a creek) of never compiled 60s Gems is still running fine, since Vol. 41 was posted just a few weeks ago. You might have noticed that there were no more official compilations issued by the big labels in the last years and I’m not sure about the reasons why not to publish new comps with unheard recordings, like the ones I have fished in the net. Copyright issues? Avaricious hoarders who will never share their goodies? Bad audio quality? At any rate, I’m sure you will enjoy 30 more Gems, all uncomped, and all worth to be feature in a compilation with the Garage Gems title. You will meet unknown groups (tracks #1, Alias#1, Tight Little Unit), groups which were really another group (The Manchesters aka The Chartbusters), the One and Only Billy Shears (seems that’s really him!), and P.J. Proby’s hairdresser (track 30; James "Spider" Barbour). In between a few (more or less fake) live tracks from TV. Detailed (i.e scarce) info and flashy band pics in the booklet (Do you ever read them..?). Have fun y’all (and thank all youtube cannels I have mentioned in the booklet)!
