How Does It Feel?
This odd yet entertaining collection of Nancy Sinatra's lesser-known early-'70s work is about as stylistically diverse as you could possibly want. Here, the go-go booted sex kitten purrs her way through an eclectic bunch of songs.
Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling ...

Best of the Rockin' Ramrods (1995)
A strange compilation that spans several stages of the group's evolution. There are eleven songs (one previously unreleased) from their mid-'60s prime, presented in much better sound than on the Eva reissue, but six of the songs from the eight ...
||GS I Love You: Japanese Garage Bands of the '60s (1996)
Japan, like many non-English-speaking countries, was home to a thriving garage/beat band scene in the 1960s. The Japanese scene, at least to Western ears, was more peculiar than most: for one thing, it didn't really kick into gear until well ...
Twenty-one sides left behind by the Undertakers, and there's not a bad song in the bunch. The first eight sides comprise their Pye Records singles, and these are pretty sharp -- this band was one of the few in England ...
||Someone to Love (1996)

So Glad I Found You (1999)
SO GLAD I FOUND YOU consists primarily of previously unreleased tracks.
They preferred alcohol to acid, tight arrangements to lengthy jams, and went to college while others dropped out. So what were they doing on the mid-'60s San Francisco rock scene? ...
||Hairem / She|
Wants a Piece of You (1999)
Although credited to She, this 19-track disc has five circa 1966 recordings by the Hairem, along with She's 1970 single and a dozen unreleased tracks from the late '60s. The only reason this might achieve greater notoriety than the usual ...
||GS I Love You Too: Japanese Garage Bands of the '60s (1999) |
Like its predecessor GS I Love You, this compiles unheard-in-the-West cuts by 1960s Japanese garage-psych bands. All 27 songs were released on Philips in Japan between 1966-69; the "GS" of the title is an abbreviation of "Group Sounds," as this ...

Very Best of David & Jonathan (1990) (Import) United Kingdom

Collectables' Expressway to Your Heart is essentially a reissue of the Soul Survivors' 1967 album, When the Whistle Blows Anything Goes, augmented by one bonus track (an extended version of "Explosion in Your Soul"). Though only the title track -- ...

||New Vaudeville Band|
Winchester Cathedral (1966)
