    Recording information: 1968. Most of the volumes in the extensive History of Texas Garage Bands in the 1960s series are various-artists compilations, but this sixth set is devoted to a single artist, the folk-rocking Sunset Love. Another incongruity is that unless their hometown of Albuquerque, NM, is now somehow within the state of Texas, the band doesn't really belong here at all. (The original recordings were made for, but not released by, the AOK label in Odessa in 1968, thereby justifying the band's inclusion, sort of.) The album's subtitle is similarly misleading, because other than the occasional bit of phased vocal harmony, these 14 songs aren't psychedelia, but straight-up folk-rock with sunshine pop tendencies (think a less-playful Spanky & Our Gang), with earnest lyrics that involve lines like, "You can be part of the change," and song titles like "Innocence Dies Young on Our Street." Yet, for all the potential for sappiness -- and to be honest, nearly every song has at least one or two cringe-worthy lines -- the performances are so sincere and fresh-faced, and the largely acoustic tunes inviting enough, that the album is actually quite listenable. Not an album for the ages, perhaps, but a rare artifact well worth seeking out for sunshine pop and folk-rock fans. ~ Stewart Mason
