UC301ab - US Garage Gems, Pt. 45


Welcome back again to the serious stuff. As you might have noticed, my personal definition of "Garage" spans a bit wider than usual (say the 45central forum). So with this collection, again, your journey starts in the very early 60s and will end in late ’71. All tracks tho’ share the same wild / simple / direct / fun / honest / approach of the most classic Garage anthems. The same cheap teenage sounds were available in those Rockabilly days, and I file it under "Garage". Probably it’s because of my wider scope on understanding I continue to dig up unheard und uncompiled Gems. I also found some tape recordings, acetates and blank label by unknown artists, so in case you got some information pls send it to me or to fab youtube channel Chuck DePrima. I especially like to thank youtubers Bill A., Hodadsmusic. Demented Bob, Dan’s Low Budget Showcase and Thomas Shore et al (mentioned in the booklet) for their postings proving the mine still delivers true gems. You just have to dig deeper! I hope you’ll enjoy the trip! (well, and Vigor Fisher’ singing really adds the L to Caplone, and it’s printed like that on the record label too, so…)
