LYRES - A Promise Is A Promise [1988]

Re-post of 3rd studio Lp from Boston's legendary garage-rock combo. Again, it's a fine mix of originals and well chosen covers as "She's Got Eyes That Tell Lies" [by Him & The Others], "Running Through the Night" [The Mystic Tide], "Jagged Time Lapse" [John's Children, Marc Bolan's pre-T-Rex outfit]. There are couple of live trax "Touch" [the Outsiders] with Wally Tax, and "Witch" [The Sonics]]. Also worth noting is "Knock My Socks Off" [take on DMZ tune "Bad Attitude"] and Stiv Bators [the Dead Boys] guests on opening track, "Here's a Heart". Dig!

THE RUMBLERS - Boss Surf Music Classics [1962 - 1964]

The Rumblers are known mostly for their one instrumental hit, 'Boss,' which made it to number 52 in early 1963. The Southern Californian group, however, recorded quite a bit in the subsequent two years, never repeating the success of 'Boss.' Though sometimes thought of as a surf band, they recorded in a variety of raucous instrumental rock & roll styles, as well as doing some vocal numbers. The Rumblers were formed at the end of the '50s by teenagers in the Los Angeles suburb of Norwalk, and by 1962, were doing some recording, hooking up with the small independent Downey label (based in the L.A. suburb of the same name). Downey had just one big hit, the Chantays' 1963 surf classic 'Pipeline,' and couldn't replicate the same level of success with The Rumblers, though 'Boss' got to the Top Ten at some local stations, going all the way to number two on KFWB in Los Angeles. 'Boss' and their local popularity, however, were enough to get them an LP on Downey and numerous follow-up 45s, including some recordings done under different names, such as the Nylons and Bel Canto's, whose 'Feel Aw Right' has an arrangement by a young Barry White. Distinguished from some other acts associated with the surf scene by their prominent use of saxophones (at one point the lineup included two sax players) and a heavier R&B orientation, The Rumblers broke up in late 1965 after guitarist Johnny Kirkland was drafted. They evolved into the Interns, who had a 1967 single in the vocal garage-pop-rock style whose popularity had made surf music largely a thing of the past. [AMG]

Sax wailin', rhythm & blues surf instros with some Surfadelic bonus stuff. Boss!

THE CRAMPS - Live At Club 57, 1979 + Demos 1977-79

CRAMPS Live At Club 57 in 1979 Double-lp set of 21 songs, including an incredible 13-song live set recorded in 1979 with professional mixes for WPIX-FM NYC with full sonic assault! Probably the best Cramps early live performance and recording ever, with Bryan & Ivy's guitars complimenting each other most brilliantly, Nick Knox's drumming is superb, and Lux providing great vocals and between-song banter.  The version of "Human Fly" is like an a-bomb exploding in your living room! The top-quality sound on the 8 demos have previously appeared on 1 or 2 reissues with inferior sound quality so get ready to hear them properly. Dig!

The Fantastic Dee-Jays [1966] Millennia Records Reissue Vinyl Rip!!!

                     THE FANTASTIC DEE-JAYS                     

As you all know, before legendary Swamp Rats there were Dee-Jays. Their sole '66 Lp gain a cult status over the years as one of the most rare and expensive 60's garage vinyl. Out there you can find Eva rec. pirate platter but this here is a superior Surfadelic Vinyl Rip from '96 anniversary reissue. Well, Dee-Jays aren't essential as Rats but this record somehow grew on me over the years. Some solid garage tunes as Get Away Girl, Fight Fire [written by John Fogerty, The Golliwogs later CCR], Love Is So Tuff, raw version of The Vogues' slick pop hit "You're The One", solid covers of Stones What a Shame and Beatles What You're Doing are worth a spin. Dig!

                     HOLIDAYS IN SERBIA vol.2                    

Here we go again with next volume of this cool instrumental compilation series made by my friend Jose Kortozirkuito from Tommentón En La Cuadra blog spot. In the 2nd part of this instro trilogy ''HOLIDAYS IN SERBIA'' you can find some well known surfin' stuff by The Astronauts, The Challengers, The Ventures, The Atlantics or The Tornados as well as some super-cool rarities. The styles varied from classic 60's surf to mid 60's garage & lounge instros. There's couple of 90's tunes just to keep it fresh and exciting. Well, I could tell you much more but gonna leave it to Jose.

Hi Surfadelic friends!
Here is the second part of this trilogy, and my personal favorite. To highlight the exciting Peruvian "The Selenites" with it's "Gogo spacial" the exotic "Marty Manning & Cheetahs" with "Tarzan's March" or "Dick Dale" hit, "The Wedge" played by "Los Coronas" in "Tipical Spanish style". Very interesting instrumental "Love" cover of "A House Is Not A Motel" . Also great classic instrumental music with unknown bands, modern surfing and much more, including an unknown track: "Lost Love", who will be the interpreter?. Mr. Eliminator Help!. Definitely good and varied instrumental music I hope you like it.
Remind you that in my blog you can find the collection
"Hold Back The Dawn" a real cool garage-folk comp.
that Mr. Eliminator gave me.
I leave you to enjoy the music and wait for the third volume.

Well, today I'm in the mood for some Garage/Folk rock. Recently I checked out a real cool blog "On The Flip-Side" and found post on The Gants 7'' from '66, Little Boy Sad/(You Can't Blow) Smoke Rings, so here we go now with their 3rd Lp Gants Again! from the same time. You're all familiar with their Beatlesque tune "I Wander" from Pebbles & Nuggets comps, well here it is among the other fine garage trax. Even consist mostly of covers of Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Young Rascals, The Troggs, The Beatles, Bo Diddley and some originals as I'm A Snake, Somebody Please and I Wander, it seems to me as pretty solid garage offer and their best 60's elpee. Dig!
