Songs The LYRES Taught Us [60’s Garage]

LYRES 3C

 

I’ve planned this for a long time and now here is a big fat 72 trax collection of songs covered by garage rock heroes the Lyres. As you know Jeff ‘Mono Man’ Conolly is a big fan of 60’s garage/beat especially The Kinks, The Pretty Things, The Sonics, The Standells, Chocolate Watch Band, 13th Floor Elevators, Flamin’ Groovies, The Stooges, Dutch band The Outsiders as well as some obscure ”Pebbles/Back from the grave” kinda stuff. Lyres have that rare ability kinda ‘magic’ to make others tunes sound as their own [somethin’ like The Cramps or Ramones]. Most songs in this collection are from 60’s but there are some R&B/Roll from 50’s and two trax from late 70’s Boston garage-punk acts. Almost every song they covered on their studio albums and live recordings is here, sometime in 2 versions. So, if you’re a fan of Lyres and 60’s garage/beat you should check these Mono Man favorites. Dig !!!
