Here’s another revisited version of an old and now a classic garage/psych comp. “Turds On A Bum Ride” 1 issued in 1991. as 29 trax 2LP set [Cd version has 25] is best in the series of 6 volumes made by some italian collectors. Opening up with killer single B-side “I Just Don’t Know” by the MC5 followed by Sean Bonniwell’s intro to The Music Machine fuzzed-out gem “No Girl Gonna Cry” (two favorite bands) and you know it’s gonna be a rollercoaster garage punk ride. Then there’s notorious “Boil The Kettle, Mother” by The ID, an obscure Jerry Cole band-project, Von Ruden‘s cool psychedelizied version of The Stones’ “The Spider And The Fly”, killer garage/psych tunes by Silk Winged Alliance, Northwest Company and The Happy Return. One of my alltime favs is ’69. psych tune “Tendency To Be Free” by Rabbit Mackay. There are more fine garage stuff with The Sparkles “I Want To Be Free”, Terry Knight And The Pack “Numbers” fuzz killer, wacky “Complication” by The Monks and The Shadows Of Knight “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”. You got loadsa great rare late 60’s psych as Capt. Groovy & His Bubblegum Army, The Animated Egg, Magic Swirling Ship, Orphan Egg, Lite Storm and exotic middle eastern influenced “For A Moment” by Orient Express. All in all, this collection is an unforgetable garage/acid ride to the center of a mind, allright! 🙂
