The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana evolved out of the Serfmen, a popular local band
with two rare 7-inches on their own Nemfres label. When the Serfmen signed with Indiana
based agency Dino Enterprises in 1966, original member Greg Church left the band and
was replaced by Billy Franze from another local group, The Unexpected. The band then
moved in a British invasion direction, both for the music and outfits, and changed its
name to The Olivers. The line-up at the time consisted of Jay Penndorf(guitar, vocals),
Chuck Hamrick (drums), Carl Aldrich (keyboards, vocals) and Billy Franze(bass, vocals).
The group's sole 7-inch release, 'I Saw What You Did' b/w 'Beeker Street', was released
-including a picture sleeve- later that year on the local Phalanx Label. It got picked
up by RCA Records for nationwide release and is rated today as one of the best and most
exciting double sided major label garage 45s of the 1960s. This is a reissue of that
single with its original front sleeve and a newly designed backcover feat a short band
history and unseen pictures.

Undoubtedly the most exciting mid sixties garage album to be recently discovered in
the genre, is that by The Horde from North Carolina. The existence of this self
produced album came to collectors' ears and eyes in 2012. It was recorded more or
less accidently in early 1967, released in a micro quantity of only 25 copies and
among the local US garage albums of the decade it is one of the few eclectic examples
with all the ingredients that makes it outstanding compared with the usual prep-school
albums of the time. It contains a blend of exciting originals and well chosen, inspired
covers (a.o. of songs made famous by Love, Blues Project and The Stones), played in
a raw, crude and frantic style. If ever it were true that the over-used assertion that
a band's cover versions measured up to the originals, then it is true of The Horde.
Why? These five 19-20 year old students from all over the United States did not only
blaze a trail for '60s rock in then conservative North Carolina, they also had a
general attitude that finds its origins in the young peoples' mindset of the mid
sixties that put them outside of the local mainstream and gained them a sort of
regional underground popularity.

The Abstracts from Long Island, N.Y. are best known for their classic song 'Always
Always'. As one of the first US bands to create an American answer to the British
Invasion, their songs were already written and a master plan already in the works
when the Beatles started their meteoric rise in the US. But like many of the first
wave UK beat bands, The Abstracts were together only for a little more than two years
and split when rock and roll moved into a direction that wasn't theirs. Though during
this short period, with their storming and ingenuous beat, they recruited a huge
following and accomplished a great deal. They were one of the first bands to utilize
a light show and besides their sole 45, their legacy contains a cache of unreleased
period recordings, some of them made for Columbia Records in 1964. Finally, over four
decades later, this album collects the bands entire studio material alongside two
excellent sounding 1966 live tracks. An in-depth insert with a wealth of never-before
-seen-photos traces the history of the band that brought "Abstractmania" to the New
York area in the sixties.

In 1965 The Knight Riders from Belmont on the San Francisco Peninsula recorded nine
tracks for the legendary Autumn Records, also home of the Beau Brummels and responsible
for the first studio recordings by The Grateful Dead and Grace Slick & The Great
Society.  It took three long years until one track from that session, the self-written
garage punker 'I', was released on Vault Records' San Francisco Roots compilation
album. It was this particular track that kept the band on the musical map over the
years as a snotty '60s punk group from the Autumn Records roster. But it takes the
complete session to prove the group's brilliance. Endowed with a great melodic feel,
the enthusiasm of youth and the ability to sing astounding harmony vocals, the Knight
Riders blended British Invasion and sixties garage-folk into amazíngly professional and
impressive masterpieces. Over the years, one or two other tracks from the session found
their way into the public domain, but the Knight Riders meanwhile grew famous amongst
collectors for their rare late '60s psychedelic acetate LP recorded under the "Jungle"
moniker. Represented here are the group’s early roots as a young '60s garage band from
the local San Francisco music scene, gifted with a musical legacy that would have made
a great mid '60s album. Eight unbelievable catchy and infectious group originals and an
unheard killer folk-rock harmony version of Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”
that has the same class as the Byrd’s “Mr. Tambourine Man”. Finally in its completeness
and for the first time ever on vinyl  – here are the Knight Riders.

A collection of rare '60s L.A. garage rock taken from the band's 7-inches, plus four
so far unreleased period recordings. The 8-page booklet offers pictures and band
history by Mike Stax. The story of the Syndicate runs along similar lines to countless
other rock'n'roll bands in the mid-sixties. They got together to have fun, made some
noise on the local teen scene, recorded a couple of singles and then vanished into
thin air, all within the space of the magical years 1965 and 1966. What makes the
Syndicate special are those two hard-to-find singles. 'My Baby's Barefoot' and 'The
Egyptian Thing', both released in 1965 are two of the most savage, hot-wired blasts
of punk R&B mayhem ever etched into wax, while the flipside of 'The Egyptian Thing',
entitled 'She Haunts You', showed the group were equally adept at moody, minor-key
material. The 'Egyptian Thing' album presents the band's four A's & B's alongside
four unreleased, same-calibre tracks from the same period, and an earlier 45 by the
Ris-Kays featuring Syndicate front man Bill Rash. The ultimate Syndicate collection
offers an unforgettable '60s garage-punk adventure.

The D-Men weres a '60s US garage/beat band from Stamford, Connecticut. This is a
painstakingly remastered collection of rare 1964-66 singles and unreleased recordings.
Includes a great LP-sized full glossy 4-page insert with pics and history by Goldmine
writer Joseph Tortelli. Take the 14 tunes of this platter, add a band named The D-Men,
and you've got a driving, shaking demonstration of US mid 1960's British invasion
influenced garage'n'roll. The D-Men are best remembered today for their minor hit
success with 45s such as 'I Just Don't Care' or 'So Little Time'. Their biggest success
and recognition though, came in 1967 under their new name 'The Fifth Estate' when they
charted nationwide with their baroque rock adaptation 'Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead'.

In August 1967 LA-based group The London Dri recorded what would be their only 45-rpm
single. 'Life In Your Hand', an original song written by guitarist Bruce Thomas, was
backed by 'Dona, Dona', a re-working of a Jewish folk song with a new arrangement by
the group. Released on the Yobo label, the two songs represented the entire released
output by the combo. For years, if recalled at all, The London Dri would be remembered
for that lone single. Between their 1965 formation and their disbandment in 1970,
however -and in between hundreds of performances and even a movie appearance- The
London Dri recorded several other songs that, had they been released, would certainly
have earned the group a more prominent standing today among Hollywood rock groups of
the era. One of the most remarkable tracks is 'This Is Life', practically the London
Dri's version of the Caretakers Of Deception's legendary garage/psych classic 'X+Y=13'
'The Other Side Of Soul' and 'Western Skies' are both melodic period westcoast rock
pieces with excellent psychedelic guitar playing. 'Hurry', 'Wanting To Know You' and
'Sorry' are all from The Misunderstood school of sound and show some clear shades of
UK freakbeat/psych bands such as The Game, Mike Stuart Span or The Attack. The only
cover version is a 5-minute+ rendition of Big Brother & The Holding Company's
'Combinations'. London Dri had it all, from garage-rock to classic US psychedelic
to UK styled mod/psych. Finally here's the band's entire legacy; 11 killer tracks in
the distinctive London Dri style. Included is a detailed 8-page booklet with history
by Mike Dugo and pics.

Mid-'60s garage-punk from Ossining, NY. In the short time of the band's existence,
The Raunch released one scorching 7-inch, contributed a cool Paul Revere cover to the
collectable local 'Battle Of The Bands' compilation and recorded notable covers of
'Hey Joe' and John D. Loudermilk's 'Tobacco Road'. This one-sided LP collects all
those five tracks and adds a 4-page info sheet, including rare pix. The two songs
from the single, originally issued by Bazaar Records.

Hailing from the Dallas suburb Oak Cliff, The Penthouse 5 had its heyday in 1966-'67,
when the band recorded a number of self-penned tunes and released two 45s. Several
recordings from 1967 and other, more psychedelic influenced tracks remained unreleased,
but demonstrate the musical versatility of the band. In 1966 the group underwent a
substantial line-up change when three of the original band members, among them vocalist
Rob Graham, left the group. He was replaced by Jon Williams, who had previously been
with the By Fives and WordD. Alongside the Penthouse 5 recordings, the rare 7-inches
of these closely linked bands are all collected for this release. Additionally an until
now completely unknown 5-track '65 acetate rounds up this collection of rare and lost
recordings by one of the greatest local '60s bands from the Lone Star State.

BREAK   50      TOM THUMB : ESSENTIAL RECORDINGS 1966-1970              LP      06.2017

During the period 1966-1970 two incarnations of Tom Thumb, a band from Wellington,
New Zealand, cut eight singles and one ground breaking prog rock EP. This LP collects
the essential tracks, including excellent fuzzy covers of The 13th Floor Elevators,
Small Faces, Alan Bown and Jim Pepper. The tracks from the 1970 EP 'The Ludgate Hill',
New Zealand's first ever progressive rock record, are also featured. Presented with
rare photos, this LP is a treat for fans of 'that kiwi '60s sound', which ranges from
garage to psyche.








Special tkanks to Wolfgang Voelkel


thanxs for your mail and interest. Good god - a great site you are
running. How many hours did you spend getting that together?

Regarding Break-A-Way Records, the Knight Riders are Break 037, but were
already planned three years ago and got cancelled due to an uncleared
rights situation. This is okay and cleared meanwhile. But the original
Break Number of 037 did remain for this project.

I did check your file and your listings are correct and below is a
tracklist of the Knight Riders LP

Glad you like my label. We put a lot of effort into it since 2001. We
are currently updating our site and I see that we give you a link for
yoursite. How should we sublabel it?


name me a line here please until sunday at lunchtime if possible

Thanxs again for your interest and support.

Best wishes,
