Superb compilation of garage punk, compiled by Tim Warren of Crypt Records, by the highly-revered and sought-after band The Squires who's notability goes back to the first two Pebbles compilations in the late 70s.
Going All The Way appeared on vol.1 and the flipside Go Ahead was comped on vol.2.

To many garage punk adherents The Squires are representative of the best of the genre - short, hook-laden songs performed in rough and ready, unpretentious style by a youthful outfit propelled by pure enthusiasm and inspiration.

Everything about Going All The Way seems to magically work - the fine, melodic songwriting, the adrenalin-soaked guitar solo and the unbelievable screams - rivalling Alan Vega on the first Suicide album for intensity.
The fact that the song was written and recorded in the studio in about 20 minutes as a complete after-thought is nothing short of miraculous.

Go Ahead is only a very slight notch down, coming on like some long-lost Byrds outtake.

To fans of the single it seemed like a dozen Christmas's arrived early when Crypt put out this compilation of their two singles (one as The Rogues), demos and rehearsal tapes. The whole album deserves to be a lot better known. Many mainstream 60s fans would certainly get a lot out of it if they knew of its existence.
The fact that you get 4 pages of background info - and an interview with the band - just makes the package a 100% must-have for garage punk fans.
