Some really good tracks on here! Fans of Helene and Marc will flip for this release.

Truly incredible Xian folk. Sometimes rocking in a Dead style sometimes hypnotic moody folk on par with some of the best I’ve heard in a long time. One of those records that will take you by surprise how good it is!

Incredible lost baroque psych album. Very solid start to finish with Summership being the highlight for me, One of the best breezy psych songs I've ever heard!

Think this is lame bubblegum? Think again. While the opening tracks on both sides fall into that trap, the rest is WAY above average psych rock. If it wasn’t The Ohio Express it’d be rated as top shelf psychedelia and sell for 10x the price. Gotta ... See full review

Really nice under the radar singer songwriter album. Hush-A-Bye is one of the most haunting folk psych tunes I've ever heard.

For some reason this record rubs some people the wrong way on first listen. But I’ve helped two friends see the light on this one, now they love it.

This seems like a great record but asking price is wayyyyy over the top. I'm sure copies will be found and sold for cheaper in time.

Sound quality is excellent. Can't say about the other boots but with this legit reissue out, I don't see a reason to but any of those.

Such a savage, moody monster! Best version of this Goffin/King number by a long shot.

This is the stuff private press dreams are made of. Introspective, lysergic folk psych with yes, some serious druggie vibes. This is on some Perry Leopold level of good...maybe better??? 100 copies pressed, not even discovered until mid 2010's. When I ... See full review

Poorly reproduced sleeve and atrocious sound quality. You're better off not owning this album at all than settling for this reissue. Save a little more and get Void press, still not perfect but a huge improvement.

Yea I agree, this is the real deal. Hypnotic folk rock of the highest order and lyrics are not overly preachy. Seriously one of the best Xian records! Only thing I can compare it to is the masterpiece from His People, and this may be even better than ... See full review

Truly magical loner folk album. Blue vinyl, blank back sleeve. Some may write this off as too sparse, but this is from a presumably troubled soul just wanted to make a record. Private press folk doesn’t get much better than this to my ears.

This terrific folk album really could stand a reissue. Sadly the niche folk market might keep this in forever obscurity.

Of all the Japanese LP, releases this one to me is extremely frustrating. INCREDIBLE cover art and sharply dressed dudes lead you to believe you're in for a early Japanese psych monster like no other. Well, it's a bunch of really poorly chosen covers. I ... See full review

Little too soft pop for it's own good. Jesamine is a great song, but the rest is so lightweight, the sappiness just drips out of the speakers. I'd say get a cool picture sleeve 45 of Jesamine and you can call it a day with this band.

This is top notch Xian folk psych. Great tunes with breezy 70s vibes and lots of flute! Some songs are straight up psychedelic folk with trippy effects. A true MUST OWN.

For a lucky few, including me, 20 copies of both Our Generation albums were discovered in an abandoned barn. Seems like all of these copies are now spoken for and in deep collections. Absolutely fantastic album hearing it on vinyl. A reissue will be sure ... See full review

Being from Chicago I have a serious soft spot for almost all late 60's records from this time. Attacking A Straw Man sadly is one of the few I just can not stand. Obviously total control by label to try to be a record selling band, this album falls flat ... See full review

Dean Davis is the real to this folkies ears. His mellow acoustics and vocals hits all the right spots. Everything I’ve heard he’s been apart of has been seen surprisingly good.

Surprisingly enjoyable pop psych effort. Was expecting this to be way off the mark, but it’s consistently solid. Good production and trippy effects. Surprised this has a bad rap.

Hate to be a buzzkill but this is NOT some lost psych masterpiece like the second Contents Are album or Front Page Review. This is extremely pedestrian psych that didn’t stand out at all. Will give another spin in time, but this was a big disappointment ... See full review

This is a really dark LP and apparently Jenkins commited suicide not long after this release. The songs are definitely from a troubled soul. Short but REALLY good.

INCREDIBLE bummer psych 45! Fuzzy guitar, lovelorn vocals, this has everything you want from a late 60's 45. The fact that this has not been comped and pretty much completely uncovered in 2018 is astounding.

For what it is, it’s a great album. Very pleasant on the ears. Nice folk rock vibe no lame country or blues vibes.

posted a comment on The Renegades (19) - Raving Blue / She's Your Find. 10 months ago
One of the best US garage 45's to my ears! She's Your Find is a top shelf fuzz guitar ripper, and Raving Blue is one of the best moody downers you'll ever hear. If you're into these kind of 45's, you'll be hard pressed to find a better two sider.

Made from dreaded remixed version...bad Void pressing on top of that makes this one barely listenable. Lion 3XLP is the ONLY way to go if you're not buying an original.

Not a start to finish masterpiece, but when it's good, it's REALLY good! A few track set this way above the average singer songwriter LP.

Gotta be crazy to sell this pop psych masterpiece. A record that only long term collectors have hunted for last 10 years. Next copy to go into circulation will surely sell for a massive sum.
