Fuzzed-out LA wonderfulness from Sky Saxon and his legendary Seeds – a garagey barrage of guitar, organ, and raspy vocals – and it's fleshed out brilliantly on this 2CD edition with the complete stereo and mono mixes, alternate versions and the rare original mono version of Sly Saxon's Spoonful Of Seedy Blues album in full! First and foremost is Web Of Sound – virtually the definition for garage rock in the mid 60s – and certainly one of our favorites! It all builds up to the super-long closer "Up In Her Room" – and before that is one raucous should-be classic after another, including "Pictures And Designs", "Just Let Go", "A Faded Picture", "Tripmaker", "Mr Farmer", and "Rollin Machine". Disc One features the stereo version followed by 7 bonus tracks. Disc Two features the mono version of Web Of Sound, followed by the mono version of Sky Saxon's A Full Spoon Of Seedy Blues – a record that really gets at the sheer raw power of his best work! Despite the title, the album's hardly a straight set of blues – more a blend of rock, psychedelia, and rootsy influences – in the manner of some of the earliest work by Love, but done with a healthy nod to Chicago electric blues. Saxon wrote most of the tunes – and titles include "Moth & The Flame", "I'll Help You", "Cry Wolf", "The Gardener", and "Creepin About".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Reprise (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A haunting LP of classic LA studio instrumental tracks, arranged and conducted by one of the most twisted figures to come out of that city's music scene in the 60s! One the surface, this stuff is just a serene batch of covers like "Ebb Tide", "Magnificent Seven", and "Stran ... CD

Man, these guys look weird on the cover – and they also sound pretty weird on the record, too – in this strange mode that really makes the album an unusual one all the way through! There's lots of dark phrasing on the guitars that really offset the whiteness of the cover – almost ... CD
