VARIOUS ARTISTS Bacchus Archives 08 East Side Sound, Vol. 1 : 1959-1968 ● CD $15.98
31 tracks, 73 minutes, highly recommended Available again. Incredible collection of singles of great greasy rock 'n' roll from East L.A., the best of the Faro, Linda, Rampart & Gordo labels owned & run by Eddie Davis, a Caucasian who fell in love with Hispanic rock. Interestingly enough, though most of the tunes are originals, the biggest hits were covers, including Cannibal & the Headhunter's Land Of 1000 Dances (heard here in the original version with the long intro, edited out of the hit), The Premiers' Farmer John, & the Blendell's La La La La. There's lots of screaming guitar & honking tenor, instrumentals, novelties, even a surf single by Gene Gray & The Stingrays, Surf Bunny/ Surfer's Mood, which not only don't sound surf, but the flip side is a total rip-off of Rumble! There's an rare early teen pop single by Larry Tamblyn & The Standells, sequel to Farmer John, The Salas Bros - The Return Of Farmer John, Enchantments - I'm In Love With Your Daughter, Pt. 1 and you haven't heard anything till you've heard Las Dillys Sisters, 2 pre-pubescent Mexican girls, doing a cover of The Standells' Sometimes The Good Guys Don't Were White!

VARIOUS ARTISTS Big Beat CDWIKD 159 "GS I Love You" - Japanese Garage Bands Of The 1960s ● CD $18.98
28 tracks, 76 minutes, highly recommended The beat boom hit Japan a little later than the rest of the world, so that by the mid 60s there was still a lot of bands sounding like early 60s Beatles, but with the current technology, they were doing it with wild fuzz guitar! Known as "Group Sound", the 3 biggest influences of GS were Mersey beat, country, & surf music (especially the Ventures), with mixtures of all 3 heard here! The bands here are Japanese garage bands who recorded for the Japanese indie labels Crown & Teichiku. There's plenty of covers of western rock tunes ranging from The Swing West doing Fire by Arthur Brown to The Burns' fuzz laden version of I Saw Her Standing There, though my faves are The Out Cast which does Everything's Alright & Long Tall Sally. There's plenty of surf instrumentals, The Spiders, Wipe Out, Dynamite, & even a few Japanese language tunes that have titles sung in English. Complete discographical info including band photos. (GM)
