An almost random compilation of 16 rare garage tracks: two each by the Mourning Reign, Bare Facts, Precious Few, T.C. Atlantic, Apollos, Sands, Black & Blues, and Mystic Tide. Much of it's pretty routine, even forgettable; it's for the devoted aficionados who pick up virtually every '60s punk comp they can find. The Mourning Reign manage a decent Chocolate Watch Band-like groove on "Satisfaction Guaranteed," and the two Mystic Tide tracks are creepy psychedelia that sound like a crude Doors, but these songs are now more widely available on other reissues. Also good is T.C. Atlantic's brilliantly hazy psychedelic number "Faces" (although that was already issued on Pebbles), and their studio version of "Mona," neither of which are on the T.C. Atlantic album that Eva put out.
