THE STANDELLS - The Best Of [Vinyl Rip!!!]

''Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the river Charles
Aw, that's what's happenin' baby
That's where you'll find me
Along with lovers, buggers and thieves''

This fine compilation came in '86 and was a reissue of '83 Rhino Rec. ''Best Of'' Lp but with different cover art [later in '89 it was issued as 18 trax CD but with somehow inferior sound]. It's a real cool overview on one of the TOP TEN U.S. 60's garage punkers. 
With legendary proto-punk stuff like Dirty Water, Riot On Sunset Strip, Mr. Nobody, Mainline, Try It, Medication, Barracuda, Why Pick On Me, All Fall Down... they manage to beat the Stones at their own game. 

''Frustrated Women Need To Be In By 12:00''

Ingeniously produced by Ed Cobb who wrote some of their best tunes [later on created a sound for another cult garage crew The Chocolate Watchband], The Standells went straight to the top of Garage Rock Pantheon.
This here is <360> Surfadelic Vinyl Rip! powerful audio assault for the best garage/punk experience. It's causing A RIOT!

''I'm going down to the strip tonight
I'm not on a stay home trip tonight
Long hair seems to be the main attraction
But the heat is causin' all the action''

THOR'S HAMMMER - Iceland 60's Punk/Beat

My favorite Iceland rock band. Formed in Keflavik in 1963. under the name Hljómar [The Chords], in '66 they recorded legendary EP Umbarumbamba for Parlophone [regarded as one of the rarest released records in the world].
Although I've already posted their complete recordings, these Vinyl Ripped seven trax are everything you should know about them. KICK-ASS garage/punk/beat. Dig!

Surfadelic Presents: FUZZ-TONE SHAKEDOWN [60's Punk]

Quess what's my favorite guitar-tone? Yeah right... It's a killer FUZZ-TONE baby! Nothin' can compare to that skull-piercing, brain-melting, wall crunching fuzz-tone sound. So, this here is a Surfadelic compilation dedicated to 60's Punk groups that have used their guitars as a weapons loaded with fuzz for audio rebellion, psych destruction and ultimate garage rock SHAKEDOWN!
So, whacha gonna do now?!? Well, I'll tell you: Get your headphones and tape 'em to yer skull, dig the stuff  & PLAY LOUD!

[P.S.: Not recommended for the faint-hearted]

THE GO-GO'S - Swim With The Go-Go's [1964]

"Watch me swim on by, look a shark in the eye, 
stay on the bottom till the tank runs dry, 
underwater, swimming underwater."

One of the many Gary Usher's studio projects of hot rod/surf 60's craze [you could hear 'em on "Hot Rod U.S.A" compilation. This vocal crew rare sole Lp is kinda not so great but nonetheless pretty interesting and will appeal to Beach Boys/Hondells fans. 
Expert advice: you should better start with B-side from Underwater... 'cause A-side is pretty weak [except for Lonely Girl and Goodbye Winter]. Anyways, do whatcha wanna do but... Do the Malibu!

THE BEAU BRUMMELS - The Best Of Beau Brummels [1964-1968] Vinyl Rip!!!

A notch or two above The Grass Roots and The Mamas and Papas, and more than a few steps below The Byrds, the early Beau Brummels took the indulgently blissful sound of '60s San Fancisco rock into a folkier, borderline country direction (and would in fact later play solid country rock). Led by guitarist/writer Ron Elliott, the Brummels made a virtue of innocence and joyful bounce, and benefited from Sly Stone's energetic production. Hits include "Laugh, Laugh," "Sad Little Girl," and a pleasant take on Dylan's "One Too Many Mornings." There may not be much substance or invention here, but 30 years later, the Brummels still sound catchy. [Roy Francis Kasten]

Vinyl Rip of this '86 Rhino Rec. compilation, a fine overview of one of the first US answers to Brit Invasion. Folk/Pop/Baroque garage produced by early Sly Stone in 3D Surfadelic rip. Dig!
