15 Forgotten Losers from the Mid 60's

In one now famous aliens invade Earth sub-epic, the outer world emissary discloses that he has come to conquer because earthlings are, "stupid". All I can say to that is AMEN! This stupidity (you may refer to it as ignorance or innocence if you'd rather) unites the choice selections on this collection as much as the era of sound from which they came.
Dedicated to Earl Rheum, Popular Guy.

Great collection of mid '60s hard-edged garage crunchers. Not a bad track on it.
When this came out in the early '80s it was an essential bit of kit for fans of the genre... as there weren't that many comps available during this era. The scene was just taking off really.
A ton of great tracks including both sides of The Pleasure Seekers single featuring the Quatro sisters, the pounding fuzz of Richard & the Young Lions' immortal You Can Make It and The Beech-Nuts nihilistic tombstone My Iconoclastic Life are among my favourites - but basically it's all great. The guy who compiled this one really knew the meaning of the phrase "all killer, no filler". This is a potent brew uncontaminated by drippy hippy noodling, horrible 'acid' rock or any 'mature' rock mannerisms al la The Doors or their later '60s brethren. This is all prime teen clatter.
Because early/mid '80s mainstream rock was so lame and feeble - it only made this type of compilation sound even more urgent and vital.
