rep> Various Artists - The Chosen Few 1-2 (1964-67 us, superb rare garage punkadelic)

Rare collection of artists  from the mid-60's and most of them have been lost in the whirl of time, but they managed to record few little pearls.  The collection is based on 45' vinyls, and from some labels who were involved in the revival of the Garage/Punkadelic sound, of the years to follow.

This release carries the sound waves and the rhythm of their time, and the booklet that accompanies gives detailed information for each song and band. We may now be surprised about the sound quality of entries but they largely manages to give us generously the position of a decade that we still love.

This was one of my first uploads (the flac rip was recently done) so the scans are only at 300dpi. If there's any request about albums or artists please feel free to ask for.
Thank you all for your support and your comments.

  1. Outstanding compilation!.
    Very good blogs in Greece
    Visit my blog:

  2. Hi Marios,

    Since this compilation is in FLAC version only, I would like to know are you planning to add .mp3 version in due time?

    Not a problem really; I can always convert, but you're making excellent 320 kbps quality .mp3 rips + there are already .mp3 mirror links for most of the stuff you posted, so that's why I'm asking.

  3. Hi, your blog is TERRIFIC! This is supposed to be one of the top garage LP's ever (Volume 1), any chance of reposting it?

    Thanks for all the great music!

  4. Awesomely FAST response! A huge thanks Marios. I will be downloading this as soon as I finish this message : )

  5. Thx, if I like them I'll buy the vinyl. br

  6. Unfortunately the links no longer exist. Any possibilty to get them reup again, please? Thanks Marios
