Three vols 10” vinyl series of killer rare 50s/60s rockers. Here you got wyld rock’n’roll, garage, beat and R&B obscurities from long gone era. One of the best comp series I heard lately. Loads of cool stuff. Don’t miss it!
“Got that rabbit on the run, chase that rabbit with my gun
No long-ear rabbit laugh at me (I’m here, mail-special! hehehe)
Got a great big rabbit-trap, long-ear rabbit don’t know that
The cotton-tale’s gonna change his habbit (I hates rabbits!)…”
Issued in 1988. on French label GMG, ”The Madness Invasion” three volumes compilation series is one of the best source of US late 50’s/early 60’s Trash Rock’n’Roll and novelty tunes next to ”Wavy Gravy” and “Big Itch” comps. Volume 2 is my favorite part of this series, with such ace trax as Surfin’ Bird-alike ”One Potato” by The Elite [band from ”Back From the Grave” vol.1], “Crazy Talk” by The Loafers, ”Ballad Of A Juvenile Delinquent” by Phil Johns & The Lonely Ones, killer “She’s A Bad Motorcycle” The Crestones, “Rumble Rock” by Kip Tyler, “I’m The Wolf Man” by Round Robin, hilariously mad “I Hates Rabbits” by Jerry Neal, “Wombie Zombie” by Billy Taylor & The Tear Drops, “Goodbye Baby” by The Roxsters… Also there are four cool instros as crazy “Roo-Buh-Doo-Buh-Doo” by The Statesmen, Bo Diddliesque “Boom Stix” by Curley & The Jades, real cool “Expressway” by the Crazy Crickets and mysterious “Like Weird” by Tommy Falcone & The Centuries that closes this great volume. The other vols of this series you can find in Rockabilly/Trash/R&B section of this blog. Now, this is A MUST alright! you gotta dig, dig, DIG!!!
“…The rabbit’s swimmin’ in the river
I’ll just wait ’cause I’m no swimmer
To catch a rabbit’s lots of plannin’
(Oh boy) (Man, what a champion) (I hates rabbits!)”
Real COOL comp. of rare, primitive & outta control early/mid 60’s rockin’ tunes. If you dig stuff like “Greasy Rock`n`Roll” series “Desperate Rock`n`Roll” or “Born Bad” ya gonna love this too. Check some favs down below ‘n’ dig! LET IT RIP !!!
Back in 1965, I lost my radio in an explosion. Yep. It just BLEW UP on the patio, just as Sonny Bono was whining-out “I Got You Babe.” Man, it was weird. No shit; this really happened. Smoke came out and everything. Now I realize it was an omen – soon FM formats would suck up the Holy Spirit of cool radio and snuff out the pilot light that was true rock & roll. For years, I’ve offered up my rhythm-horny ears as sacrificial lambs to something – ANYTHING – that could justify my owning a radio. (Heck, if it weren’t for baseball, my squawk box woulda gotten the old heave-ho ages ago.) Then, one day I heard the news…
IT’S TWELVE O’CLOCK
MIDNIGHT AND IT’S
TIME TO HOWL!
This eekin’ beacon was reekin’ with the same sonic earblasts that had once transformed a handful of plastic wires and transistors into a secondary heart. And who, disguised as Cub Koda, wild-mannered DJ for a 50,000 watter, fights a never ending battle for the truth, justice, and the American way, jumpin’, shoutin’, and gigglin’ through platters, chatters, and all that matters? Yesiree Bobalu, it’s the same Cubby the K we know and love as the “Vinyl Junkie” in his GOLDMINE mag column, and the same ol’ boy whose wax (fromhis teen pud combo the Del Tinos to his current rockaroonie blooz boy shenanigans to his shiny gold disc days of Brownsville Station and “Gropin’ In the Girls’ Room”) ranks him right up there with… um, lemme see… Nervous Norvus? Yep! And now right here in the nifty fifty we got us one dee-fried and bona fida Moondog blastin’ a regular riot known as THE BIG DISC JOCKEY SHOW IN THE SKY! But hey, this hi-fidelity shin-dig now knows no bounds, ‘cause plucked rip and ready from outta those high frequency ozone-rippin’ airwaves above our heads is a microgroove pancake featuring the Cubmaster hisself roarin’ and growlin’ and preachin’ and teachin’ and celebratin’ the advent of electricity like he’d been struck by lightning!
Ah, relief at last – an aural antidote to Sonny Bono!
Dive in and dig!

Chess not only reissued the 1967. compilation Chuck Berry’s Golden Decade, but also assembled this 1972. second volume, which contains another 24 Berry songs from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s on two LPs. Of course, the first album gathered the best-known and biggest hits, but there was plenty of memorable material left over, and this album contains the Top 40 hits “Carol” and “You Never Can Tell,” the chart entries “Sweet Little Rock And Roller,” “Jo Jo Gunne,” “Run Rudolph Run,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” “Let lt Rock,” “Jaguar And Thunderbird,” “Little Queenie,” and “Promised Land,” the R&B hit “No Money Down,” and such hits-for-others as “Come On” (the Rolling Stones’ first U.K. single). That’s more than enough to earn the album a “best” rating. [William Ruhlmann]
Collection of raw rockin’ n’ surfin’ instros on Mr. Manicotti label that gave you legendary ”Diggin’ Out” comp. and ”The Big Itch” series. Already have posted this before but here it is again with slightly better sound. Concussion!!!
You know Bo and Bo knows instros! This is a collection of 50’s and 60’s Bo’s instrumental tunes taken from albums and rare recordings comps. There’s a rhythm, there’s a blues and wyld Bo Diddley beat, alright! Dig!!!
“This selection of 16 gems recorded between 1956 and 1968 is amazingly modern. Irresistibly smooth yet radical, sharply biting, yet affable, these songs from another era have the power to make even the saddest squares laugh and wriggle, dance and jump about.”
