DIGGIN' FOR GOLD

VA - Diggin' for Gold (A Collection of Demented 60's R&B Punk & Mesmerizing 60's Pop)  Vol. 01 - 12 [1994-2021] (12 x CD's)

Diggin' for Gold is a collector's delight.  Presenting a collection of rare and obscure 45's from around the world in an international showdown of teenage angst, despair and delinquency. The toxic sound of 60's garage punk never sounded so good!! Blasted through 60 Watt amplifiers on a diet of amphetamines and adrenalin, Diggin' For Gold offers torment and misery with an explosive twist in mind-bending mono. A collection of demented 60's R&B, punk, and mesmerizing pop.

Most of these bands never had more than a regional hit, if that, and while there is a lot of energy, intent, and purpose on display here, it's pretty easy to see why few of these sides ever penetrated too far into the international pop world. Full of chaotic, messy arrangements and production, these were records of the moment, and collected like this, they carry a kind of retrospective weight of importance that would probably startle anyone in the original bands. Nothing here rewrites the history of rock (Amazon)
