Here then, is the first mix since before the holidays. This one is full of 60s garage, psych and soul – the only new track being from the new Higher State album, which you’ll soon be able to read more about here. A few noteworthy things are: The Roemans was the backing band used by Tommy Roe, The Rose Garden (also known as The Giant Sunflower) appear with an exclusive track penned by Gene Clark. the Bobby Jameson track also appeared on his LP as Chris Lucey (under the presumably censored title “Metro Man”) and thanks goes to Expo67 for that recording. Last but not least The Bitter Sweets appearing here is the Arizona group with two amazing double-siders. This Byrds rewrite is the flip of the Hype 45 featuring the hauting “She Treats Me Bad” on the a-side. Their of-equal-caliber Original Sound 45 featuring “In the Night” b/w “Another Chance” has been comped on Wyld Sydes Vol. 2 and Mindrocker Vol. 13 respectively, dig them up.
