Highly recommended garage/proto-punk (some even say proto-metal) LP, originally released in 1966. This reissue has been superseded by the recent Light in the Attic 2xLP one, but still, an overall nice piece. Album-wise, you either like it or you don't. Heavier than most stuff coming out of the states at the time (FYI: the band was US servicemen, who performed and recorded this LP in Germany, after army release), but in no way psychedelic.
