Initially gaining a modicum of fame in their home state of New York with the east coast surf/rock group The Dolphins, Roy and Tor Pinney eventually relocated to Texas and (both separately and together) found much greater success with The Chains, whose version of ‚"I Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore‚" was a regional smash. Referred to as ‚"The Beatles of El Paso,‚" The Chains recorded four singles - all examples of 1960’s garage rock at its finest. This first ever compilation of the Pinney brothers’ ‘60’s music includes all of the 45s released by The Dolphins and The Chains as well as many never-before-heard and previously unreleased demos and acetates - along with additional bonus tracks that represent the earliest musical highlights of two very talented brothers.
