Exceptionally , all tracks of this double sets come from the same youtube channel, but here are true Garage nuggets that are too good to be missed. I got permission to do whatever I like with the tracks posted on Youtube, but not unveiling the collector’s identity which, at this point, remains a guess for me, too. I’m quite sure he will be a collector (working for reissue labels, or doin’ his own?) and might be a member of forums such as g45 central or likewise, as ALL tracks he posted are rare as hen’s teeth, from worn out 45s, acetates, and even MusicCassete tapes (you remember?). And ALL tracks have written GARAGE in bold letters all over, even the tracks tagged as “moody” (which still means Garage, in most cases, right?) . I just picked the tracks that were missing in my own db (of 60,000 entries ), which was about 80% of the youtube tracks! This means you might find more fabulous tracks visiting GarageBeatnick’s youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfdsnogZmOQJS57c8vk0iUQ) and I hope we can count on GarageBeatnick’s generosity i.e. get more rare tracks.
At any rate, I’m sure you will welcome 29 + 29 +29 Garage recordings from the US (in chronological order on vol. 2, in alphabetic order on vol. 1). So just say thanks to nobody but praise Mr. Anonymous who hopefully will appreciate, too, and will keep on digging for nuggets (to share with all, instead of hoarding !).
I also hope you’ll dig the little booklets I created, adding some (very scarce) info, band pics and label shots. Have fun!
