Notes

As far as I can glean, this is a 'bootleg'. And a very well done bootleg indeed. The record was bootlegged sometime in the eighties. The only real difference I see is in the matrix runouts, which include in a bit of candor the letters 'RE'.

I don't quite understand the fascination with some of this early Detroit rock. This album would have been a lot more interesting with Bob Seger's 'East Side Story', 'Persecution Smith' which were originally released on Hideout. And certainly 'What a Lovely Way To Die' by the Pleasure Seekers (featuring a young Suzi Quatro) would have been a nice addition.

The Underdogs' version of 'Surprise, Surprise' is pretty much done like the superior Stones' version. And the Four of Us's versions of 'Baby Blue' and 'I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better' will only remind one of how great the originals were.

And I may be a bit of a racist, but I don't think white boys like the Yorkshires, nor the talented Blues Magoos should even touch James Brown's classic 'I Go Crazy'. Some songs BELONG to artists. This album is certainly an interesting document of early Detroit sixties' rock, but hardly the 'best' of the Hideouts.

But I must admit, I find the Underdogs' 'Man in the Glass' and 'Judy Be Mine' to be Detroit classics of a sort.
