Regular price €12,90
Any true '60's garage maniac should already be hip to The Outspoken Blues' monster '60s garage track 'Not Right Now' via Back From The Grave, Volume 8, as well as The Bryds' 'Your Lies' via Back From The Grave, Volume 6. Now, on this historic and completely official 17-track CD, the full musical output and story behind those legendary Chicago '60's garage bands is finally told. The compilation kicks off with both sides from The Outspoken Blues' ultra-rare and killer $5,000 single of 'Not Right Now' b/w 'Mister You're A Better Man Than I' that was originally released on the highly sought after Orlyn Records studio label in 1966; that single is followed by 11 fabulous and never-before-released 1967 garage/r&b tracks from The Outspoken Blues' unreleased album, including seven originals ('Not Right Now', 'Sitting On A Sunday', 'A Wonderful Summer', 'I Can't Make You Love Me', 'I'll Stay','All Your Love' and 'N.Y.P.D') and five covers ('Mister You're A Better Man Than I', 'I Know', 'Hold On I'm Comin'', 'Turn On Your Lovelight' and 'Since I Don't Have You'). Also featured are two great and previously unreleased 1968 garage tracks ('Poor Rich Man' and 'Jr. Saw It Happen') that were recorded under the moniker of The Prod. As a final bonus, the CD is rounded out in great fashion with both tracks from The Bryds' super rare and fantastic 1965 teen garage 45, 'Your Lies' b/w 'Why Did You Have To Break My Heart', penned by The Outspoken Blues' main songwriter and part lead-vocalist Robert Stanley.
