    The Penthouse 5 were one of thousands of Texas bands influenced by the mid ‘60s British Invasion sound. Hailing from Dallas suburb Oak Cliff, the group had its heyday from 1966-67, when they recorded a number of group originals and released two 45’s. The band is best remembered for their 1966 garage killer “Bad Girl”, the Beatleesque “You’re Gonna Make Me” and more Byrds like folkrocking recordings such as “In The Shadow” or “Don’t Mess Around With My Dream”. Several 1967 recorded and more psychedelic influenced tracks remained unreleased, but demonstrate the musical versatility of the band. In 1966 the group underwent a substantial line-up change when three of the original band members, among them vocalist Rob Graham, left the group. He was replaced by Jon Williams, who had previously been with the By Fives and WordD. Alongside the Penthouse 5 recordings, the rare 7”ers of these closely linked bands are all collected for this release. Additionally an until now completely unknown 5-Track acetate recorded in 1965 rounds up this collection of rare and lost recordings by one of the greatest local sixties bands from the Lone Star State.
