The Creations (AFCO)

In 1965 The Creations released this Hang on Sloopy sounding 45 on the Afco  label which was located in Union, Kentucky.  Nice organ on this one, I wish they would have included a guitar solo., never the less a nice garage pop song.

Marrell's Marauders ( Fan Jr )

Hi everybody, today I feature Marrell's Marauders aka Robin and The Three Hoods. This 45 has the band's wonderful garage/surf instrumental song " The Marauder" as well as "I wanta do it". The Garage Hangover website has a really good history and photo of the group. There are two reasons why I posted this 45 from this outstanding band . First of course its a great record, second the vocals and the guitar work is a little different on "I wanta do it". Seems to be a little tamer version, let me know what you think.

The Liverpool Sound of The Royals (Monumental)

Once in a while you come across a record that surprises you , I would put this one in that category. The Royals "Your Sweet Love" is a great uncomped garage classic. Outstanding record!
