This Pebbles volume is dedicated to raw 60’s Brit rhythm & blues rather than Mod as it’s stated on the cover. It features cool garage/r&b by The Fairies [Twink pre Pink Fairies band], The First Gear, The Betterdays, The Wild Ones, David John & The Mood, The Wheels, Bill & Will “Goin’ To The River” (later covered by The Gories), covers of Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed. One of my favs is “Singing The Blues” by Jason Eddie And The Centremen, a neurotically played tune produced by legendary Joe Meek! [apparently he added the wild guitar afterwards without the band knowing and they weren’t happy]. Last track on this comp is a pop tune by Bo & Peep and the band is mainly The Rolling Stones plus others that might have included Gene Pitney and Phil Spector.
As with other “Revisited” volumes the sound quality is quite improved with trax from the best possible sources. There is also cool bonus cut by Jimmy P. just for your listening pleasure, don’t miss it! Dig!!!
“For a lot of years, this double-album compilation, sort of the Bo Diddley equivalent to Chuck Berry’s The Great 28 or the first two Chuck Berry Golden Decade sets, was the best collection of Diddley’s stuff on the market, containing all of his best known songs and some of the best of his album tracks up through the mid-’60s.” [Bruce Eder]
Yo peoples! As ya already know – “No Bo no party!” Here’s vinyl rip of 2LP set collection in (fake) stereo so the sound is kinda different, more groovie than on other Bo’s comps, that’s the selling point alright! I know you got tons of Bo ‘s stuff but don’t miss this one, you’ll be surprised, dig!!!
This is 2LP set compilation of Pretty’s ’65/’66 recordings, issued on Sire records in 1976. Here you got all of their classic rhythm ‘n’ blues influenced garage beat stuff as Don’t Bring Me Down, Road Runner, Come See Me, Rainin’ In My Heart, Honey I Need, Rosalyn, Can’t Stand The Pain, Mama Keep Your Big Shut, Gonna Find A Substitute, Midnight To Six Man, Buzz The Jerk, L.S.D… Maybe you wonder why you should dig this comp. after so many others, well I’ll tell ya. It has kinda different aural mix then other Pretty Things editions, maybe the best Pretty’s mid 60’s sound quality I’ve ever heard. It’s not my vinyl rip but hey… you should dig it anyway!
Well… hmm… Ok! You probably know this guy from Blood, Sweat & [Shit] Tears, but hey don’t you fret, don’t look away. Here’s s Surfadelic collection of this Canuck singer’s real cool garage/r&b stuff from ’65/’66 albums ”Shays A-Go-Go” & ”Sings Like It Is!” with The Shays [known for ‘Brainwashed’ from The Essential Pebbles Collection]. Some tunes like ”Take Me Back”, ”Want You I Don’t” or ”Brainwashed” are true-bred 60’s garage while others are fine r&b tinged fuzzed-out originals and covers as “Howlin’ (For My Darlin’)”, “Boom Boom”, “Done Somebody Wrong”… This stuff somehow reminds me on Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. 13 trax of garage driven R&B rock, with plenty of cool fuzz guitar breaks all over the place. Now ya know, check some favs’n’ 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]
