Standout sounds from the 60s pop scene in LA – classic tracks from jangle-pop genius of Gary Lewis & The Playboys! Gary's vocals are plenty catchy, as are the group's rhythms and guitars – but it's also the studio production that really grabs us too – much of which was handled by Bones Howe and Snuff Garrett, in that brilliant Liberty
Records style of the time – a mix of syncopated pop, surf influences, and even a trace of nascent garage! The collection features both the a and b-sides of these singles – so it goes way way past any of the overplayed oldies you'll know from Lewis – a great illustration of the more creative modes both he and Liberty
hit as the 60s moved on, plus some groovy overlooked tracks from the early years too. Titles include "Hard To Find", "Tijuana Wedding", "Without A Word Of Warning", "She's Just My Style", "Way Way Out", "Looking For The Stars", "Tina", "Green Grass", "Happiness", "Sara Jane", "Where Will The Words Come From", "The Loser", "Hayride", and "Gary's Groove" – plus "Doin The Flake", a cool tie-in with Frosted Flakes cereal!
