This is a really fantastic reissue of a really fantastic album, sleeve is very nicely recreated and the sound is much richer and clearer than some old seeds comps I have from the 70s and 80s, definitely the way to go for a solid, affordable pressing

I'm trying to figure out the difference between this release: 10581757 and 9606121 https://www.discogs.com/The-Seeds-The-Seeds/release/9606121. They look identical except the second one (9606121) doesn't say the Mono cat # is on the front, but the photograph does show it. Mine seems to be this version, but I honestly can't find any difference between these two releases other than the description. Any thoughts?

I think this release The Seeds - The Seeds is the same as The Seeds - The Seeds. And the last sign of the matrix number is not a "ℬ" but rather "CB" as indicated on the other release.

The Seeds are one of those bands who just jumbles my brain, and it’s not because of the music so much, it’s because of the band’s demeanor, how they viewed themselves, and that they were more than willing be ‘pushin’ too hard’ to not only make a name for themselves, but keep that brand alive … and a brand it was.

Certainly The Seeds rose out of the psychedelic flower power era, and rode that Haight Ashbury wave with their looks and presentation.  There are also those who are going to attempt to tell you that The Seeds laid down the fundamentals for the punk movement that would shake the world some ten years into the future.  In reality, The Seeds, though primarily frontman Sky Saxon, were a quintessential Sunset Strip band of the mid 60’s, with Saxon being an over exuberant LA and Topanga Canyon nomad who literally took far too much acid, far too often to think clearly.  

Regardless, the album still has a positive hue around it, with many claiming that it was one of the best garage psych albums of all time, with new listeners continually discovering the release, entranced with its awkward yet jubilant sparkle, with critics saying, ”The album is brilliantly simple, a headlong surge of fuzz drenched guitars, bubbling organ riffs, and raw throat tearing vocals.”  While later albums would move more towards the essence of psychedelia, it’s this 1966 release that the band is, and will forever be known for, both defining them in and of a moment from which they seemed doomed never to be able to shake, never able to progress further, as they were always being pulled back into this outing, and that historic single, “Pushin’ Too Hard.”

And therein lies my personal dilemma with The Seed … The Monkees had a television show during this time, and then there was Partridge Family, but one can dismiss or excuse these bands because they were designed and set up to be part of a television show, and not as ‘official bands.’  But The Seeds were a rock n’ roll outfit, a band with a leader who was a confused angst ridden outsider who was desperate for a bit of love and acceptance.  And to that end there was nothing the band wouldn’t promote to stay in the limelight, including guest appearances on some of the worst of the worst sitcoms of our time.  Sure, I thought it was a hoot to see The Seeds on television, to see the fashion and the style of the times smacked up against that of the older generation and the status quo straight laced establishment stars of these shows.  Over time, with this constant exposure, I began not to take The Seeds any more seriously than I took the fake band The Archies.

Yes, I would love to sit down and be able to listen to The Seeds and delight in remembering those days, when in reality, with each word I type, I can see nothing but this [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQWVHvjdfZw], dumbfounding-ly swimming through my head.

*** The Fun Facts: Sky Saxon, Richard Marsh, also known as Little Richie Marsh, was born in Utah in 1937, which would make him over 30 at the time of this release … and we all know that in 1966, one could not trust anyone over 30, hence he would never pin down his actual date of birth.

In 1973, he became a member of the Source Family religious group, a Hollywood Hills commune led by YaHoWha (a restaurateur, whose real name was Jim Baker) who gave Saxon the names Sunlight and Arlick.

"Includes GNP Crescendo blue/white inner sleeve."

My understanding is that these inner sleeves came with 80s re-issues.

not sure if this is just my copy or this is an error across all copies but i am missing track C7 "Nobody Spoil My Fun (alternate overdub, take 3a)." it's listed in the insert but isn't on the record or the label.

After buying this "stereo" LP last week I noticed that the side A runout info is the same as Discogs 7315777 and 4283462 (mono pressings), but the B side is the same as 4187853 (early stereo issue). Planning to rip this and take a closer look when I have some time.
