Starting off with a gem: "Last of the Garage Punk Unknowns"

(scott) this was a submittal from John N, (SUBTITLE:  American Teenage Garage Hoot! 1965-1967)......there are, I guess, also a few differences from the first release, which are summarized HERE: 

NOTE:  These links contain the individual full-on LPs with all tracks from each of the 8 LPs except for Vol. 5, which I don't have separately, and only have as the compilation 2-disc combo when the company reduced Vol. 5 by 2 songs to allow Vols. 5 & 6 to fit onto a single CD.  The two missing songs from Vol. 5 are track 7, Purple Virus - "The Law of the Jungle," and track 15, The Fatigues - "Rooftops," which, based on youtube listens, were probably the least of the songs.  Regardless, there are 120+ ace slabs here.
