(2015/Sundazed) 10 tracks, (2015/Sundazed) 10 tracks, The Standells’ amazing string of punkish, tough-guy anthems,
like 'Dirty Water' and 'Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White', define
the legacy of mid-sixties garage rock like nothing else. With the
success of these records came ’66 tours with the Rolling Stones and
Beach Boys. From all reports, the Standells proved a superb live act.
But for decades, their on-stage reputation rested on an earlier,
Pre-Tower label live album documenting the Standells in an
unrecognizably clean-cut night club incarnation. Rescued from a
professionally recorded concert at the University of Michigan, the
Standells are captured in astonishingly clean sound that rivals their
legendary studio recordings. This may just be the finest recorded
example of vintage live ’66 American garage rock. It’s all here, the
Standells in brilliant sound and in a superb package including rare
photos and liner notes.
