Both volumes of the original vinyl on one fantastic cd. I'm not normally given to hyperbole - but this is the greatest cd ever made! Every single track is an out-and-out classic - bar Thee Wylde Main-iacs which is an after-the-fact 1980s recording.
An absolutely stunning selection of original US garage punk from the golden age. All rough-edged teen snarl. No crappy hippie-isms, no noodling guitar solos, no saxophones or keyboards and no bare-chested macho hollering... just primo teen fuzz and scuzz. This is the cd to get if you can't afford the original vinyl albums.
Yes - the cd sleeve is a bit boring looking - but the best things in life are often hidden away like this. You do get good sleeve notes in the booklet and the sound quality is great. It's actually not so easy to find this cd. I got mine from Australia - but if you dig '60s garage punk this one is essential and you'll find a way to get it.
