Obscure 60's Garage Vol. 1

Back in the mid 80's I used to trade cassette tapes of 60's garage/punk/psyche with a guy from Indiana named Ron Simpson. We swapped about 15 tapes all together, and to this day, they are some of my favorite "comps". I called these tapes quite simply "Obscure 60s Garage". With time I noticed the tapes slowly deteriorating, and we all know (well, those of us old enough anyway) what a tape player can do to an old tape. They increasingly run the risk of bieng eaten by the machine. So with 21st century glee, I set out to digitize these gems om my PC, and my precious 15 volumes of garage band genius are now saved forever. Now it's time to share. I know that the sound quality of these tapes are way below average, compared to many of the newer CD comps out today, but I still think you'll enjoy these "mixes". Friends and members of The Projectiles will recognize lots of these tunes, as we incorporated many of these "nuggets" into our set lists.  ENJOY!!!
Love, Dan
