Paradise Of Garage comps
I just picked up a killer comp of Texas psych from the 60's. There's a bunch of volumes but as far as I can tell only one on record. All killer no filler. The Scotty McKay Quintet's version of 'Train Kept a Rolli' is boss, especially seeing as the band befriend Jimmy Page from The Yardbirds, sent him the track and he overdubbed a solo. Most of the stuff is straight up banging garage - in the vein of early Elevators.... sure there's psych in there, but this ain't no hippy shit. I found digital files at the fantastic "Paradise Of Garage Comps" blog. Click the link above. Here's some rad Elevators footage to get you in the mood.
