Colombian four-piece The Flippers released two albums between 1965 and 1967. This 10" release collects the best of their recorded work. Great fuzz guitar and wild vocals make this one of the great South American garage releases. Tracks include "Ain't No Beatle", "Mickey's Monkey" and "Los Cuervos Estan De Luto" - 14 tracks total. Complete with full colour sleeve.
One of the best Mexican GARAGE records of the sixties. Covers of The RIVIERAS, CHAMPS, and TRASHMEN.... all the golden age numbers such as "California Sun", "Walking The Dog", "Diddy Wah Diddy", "Memphis", "La,la,la,la,la" and others performed in a Latin Fink manner. Great!
An atypical band from the Madrid scene Los Grimm were influenced by "The Shadows", producing crystal-clear melodies with the addition of an incredibly soulful vocalist wielding a superb voice. While they received very little commercial success and never even managed to record an entire album their 7"s have become highly sought after by collectors and here they are, finally all compiled together on this new, vital collection.
One of the greatest Rock & Roll records ever released is the Los Locos del Ritmo debut, where they were playing same songs the original rockers from the US.This is considered to be one of the best non North-american Rock & Roll records made in the 50’s. Includes 2 bonus tracks ! Limited to 500 copies !
10" reissue of this great psych album from '60s Chile. Beatles like melodies and trippy dreamy psych pop make this one an essential item for collectors of South American psychedelia.Perhaps the best psychedelic album produced in Chile?
Finally available a reissue of one of the best South American garage punk albums. It features songs sung in spanish and includes fiercely arranged versions of the Animals, Pretty things, John Lee Hooker and Troggs compositions…. Great picture sleeve.
Spanish Lesson number Uno: OVNI = UFO. You can try to find an original copy for $500 or get this reissue. This is ACID PUNK at its peak. "LOS OVNIS" is one of the most sought after mexiacn bands by 60´s collectors. Included you can find the band´s first steps (closer to punk than to acid-rock), and liner notes by the Ovnis´ members. Pressed from the original tapes.
As the title suggests, wild sounds inspired by US legends like Elvis, Chuck Berry and Little Richard. This 12 track release is loaded with freakout rock and roll garage music from a time when rock and roll conquered the world. Mental stuff......
Urugayan beat masters! 1966 Recordings from their US LP 'Break It All'. Great tracks in impeccable stereo sound. Including songs from the first album + some non-album tracks much better recorded and edited than the 'official' albums. A must-have!!
One of the Big Rock & Roll bands in Mexico in the late 50’s were Los Sonambulos ("The Sleepwalkers") and they hit the charts with their own adaptations of Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Johnny Burnette, Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran songs. All of the 10 cuts on this disc were originally recorded and released in 1957.
From Argentina, this band started out as a mod-influenced act, but by 1968 had produced this astonishing psychedelic masterpiece highly influenced by the Rolling Stones' 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' groovy quasi-psychedelic ballads, thinly veiled Beatles pastiches and summery pop with lashings of fuzztone guitar. Featuring ex-member of Los Mockers. A prime example of the so-called 'Rioplantense psychedelia'.
Collection of the most aggressive moments of this Mexican outfit who were probably one of the most popular 60's band in Mexico, and recorded more than 10 LPs. Selections include the Troggs, Kinks, Rolling Stones, Deep Purple ('Hush!'), Human Beinz, etc. + some originals. Mastered from the original tapes.
Here it is! You could be tempted to consider "MAS ROCK AND ROLL" a label sampler since most of the artists here have their own record on Electro Harmonix, but this is mucho more! Mas Rock&Roll ("More Rock&Roll") is an incredible compilation of some of the best 60s garage, punk, and rock&roll ever made south of el Rio Grande. And this means not only Mexico, but South America too: Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru etc. And for extra oddity a song from The 5 Torquays (five G.I.s from the US stationed in Germany who later became THE MONKS!) and a band from Madrid, Spain were added.

Known to two entire generations of American 60s garageband fans, PHIL AND THE FRANTICS gained their widespread notoriety by being one of the bands to have their 'regional' (and now rare as hens teeth) 60s release, "I Must Run" included on probably one of the best known 60s garage compilations, Pebbles Vol. 1 (first released in 1978!). Here's a 10" containing 12 kiler cuts by this cool combo including "I Must Run".

No political correctness, no decency, no taboos and no prisoners. 10 songs recorded at TOE RAG STUDIOS, including a cover of the MASTER APPRENTICES and a cover of the DEAD KENNEDYS.
