The 60's Choice Collection of Scarcest Garage Records



I downloaded this gem of an album on DC++; however, since obtaining it, information regarding this album has proven to very scarce. What I do know is that it was released in 1992 by EVA Records, and it contains a great selection of tracks which were recorded between 1965 to (967 by various underground garage acts. I was very impressed upon hearing this compilation for the first time. It's a solid collection of songs, and I don't think there's a bad track on the album. I highly recommend this for anyone who is into 60's garage or psychedelic rock. Unfortunately the person I was downloading this from went offline before I was able to get the last track. I'll keep checking back..hopefully I'll be able to catch that person online again, download the last track, and add it here.

Track List:
1. The French Church - Slapneck 1943
2. The Olivers - I Saw What You Did (1966)
3. Evil Enc. Group - The Point Is
4. London & The Bridges - It Just Ain't Right (1966)
5. Loved Ones - Surprise, Surprise (For You) (1966)
6. The Executioners - I Want The Rain (1966)
7. The Heathens - Problems (1967)
8. The Hangmen - Faces (1966)
9. The Romancers - Love's The Thing (1965)
10. The Jagged Edge - How Many Times (1966)
11. Don & Jerry With The Fugitives - In The Cover Of Night (1965)
12. The Deepest Blue - Somebody's Girl (1966)
13. The Kings Ransom - Shame (1966)
14. Evil - Always Running Around (1967)
15. The New Dawn - Slave Of Desire
16. The Bit A Sweet - Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind (1967)
17. The Todds - I Want Her Back (1967)
18. Art Guy - Where You Gonna Go
19. The Tears - Weatherman (1966)
20. Loved Ones - Together, Together
21. Other Side - Walking Down The Road (1966)
22. The Gentlemen - Wild You Gotta Leave (1967)
23. The Nervous Breakdowns - I Dig Your Mind (1967)
24. The Echoes Of Carnaby Street - Baby Doesn't Know (1966)
25. The Spats - She Done Moved (1966)
26. The Bush - Feeling Sad And Lonely (1966)
27. The Lost - Back Door Blues (1965)
28. The Love Ins - That's All She Wrote (1966)

Pretend that the missing song was -
An Invitation To Cry by The Magicians. They later became The Fugs.

"In The Cover Of Night," I haven't heard this one since the Mod Monday show on WNYC in 1984. It was old then, and now I am as well.

Wow. Great mix. My Dad was in the Hangmen (Tony Taylor..see Bittersweet album..lead vocals). Nice to see their songs still show up in weird places. And no..he is not dead..despite rumors.

Thank yu for sharing but we need the pass :)

Zer0_II said...

Oops.. it appears that I did paste a link to the album cover rather than the download link. I apologize to those who looked forward to downloading this. The link is fixed now for those who want it. Enjoy!

Zer0_II said...

There is no password by the way. A couple of people must have been confused about the fact that I accidentally linked to the album cover rather than the download for the album, but there is no pass. I just wanted to clear that up for anyone considering downloading this.

Mike said...

I was definitely asked for a pass when I tried to open it.
As none was provided in reply to requests the file proved useless to me and I have since deleted it.

said...

To ge & Mike, et. al.
Seeing the comments about needed password I just now re-dl'ed this file & then used basic Winrar to open the file. Opened just fine with NO PASSWORD NEEDED!!!

Mike said...

yep. yours works fine.
I guess as you were linking to a jpg I used the link provided by apoxonbothyourhouses. That one is password protected.

hotrodmike said...

What a greta comp. Thanks a lot for such a cool post.

syd said...

This is one superior 60s comp .. thanks a lot. Weird about the huge spelling mistake on the cover "scarces(t)" .. I guess the guy was just a little under the influence at the time.
