The Standells - Dirty Water / Twitchin'
7" single • $8.98
The Standells are one of the most successful of all garage rock bands, with their signature song "Dirty Water" having been a huge nationwide hit in the sultry summer of 1966! True fathers of punk rock, they were touring later that year to support the success of their hit record when they were professionally captured on tape opening up for the Beach Boys at a University of Michigan performance as they served up a raucous, raw live helping of their most famous record—now featured on this limited edition that puts you as close to a mid-’60s frat fuzz party as you can get! “Dirty Water” is a tireless anthem, a song for the hip-and-happening whose legacy shines in this rare recording. Also includes “Twitchin’,” a previously unissued 1963 instrumental from the group’s earliest days, predating their first record. Plus, recollections about both recordings from original member Larry Tamblyn, housed in a picture sleeve featuring rare photos that evokes the look and feel of 1966. Live and raw energy from the legendary Standells—on clear vinyl!
•Live 1966 punk in action—professionally recorded!
•Picture sleeve with rare photos and new notes by the Standells' Larry Tamblyn!
•Record Store Day 2014 limited edition on clear vinyl!
The Trashmen - Mean Woman Blues / Big Boss Man Live at the Whiskey a Go-Go
7" single • $8.98
Regularly packing regional Midwest venues with their incendiary live shows, The Trashmen's pal Mike Jann rightly concluded that these performances needed to be documented for posterity. Bringing his portable reel-to-reel tape recorder to Minneapolis’ St. Paul’s Whiskey A Go-Go, Jann captured the two previously unreleased performances in August 1966. Before a hometown crowd, The Trashmen threw down the bird dance beat with an authority born of road-hardened chops. No Pro-Tools, no Autotune, no overdubs: just real, writhing rock coming at you at a 1000 miles per hour.
The Surfaris - Wipe Out / Surfer Joe
7" single • $8.98
The Surfaris’ seminal 1963 smash “Wipe Out” with a new 1963-styled picture sleeve includies liner notes showcasing a recent interview with original rhythm guitarist Bob Berryhill. Both “Wipe Out” and the flip-side anthem “Surfer Joe” are in their original long versions, reproduced on the original Dot label and pressed in red vinyl!
The Yardbirds - Ha Ha Said The Clown b/w Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor
7" single • $8.98
"Ha Ha Said The Clown" b/w "Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor" was released as a U.S. single in July 1967 prior to the Yardbirds' final studio album Little Games, which followed one month later. Produced by Mickie Most, the A-side was a cover of a Tony Hazzard song that had already been a hit for Manfred Mann. The flip side is another story altogether! "Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor," a Jim McCarty-Jimmy Page original, is an explosive song with a driving, martial pace. It features a breakout performance from Page, marking his first use of a bow on a recording (listen for the unmistakable bowing solo in the bridge).
