Hillside 66

OHHHHH yeah........I took this from the great Italian blog, "Paradise of Garage Comps" a tremendous site (I've borrowed from him before with no issues) (

Anyway, the fab thing about this collection is that every track on this is from either Columbus Ohio, or Dayton Ohio......I live smack between the two, the megapolis that is Springfield Ohio, but I am thrilled to discover this comp...lotsa cover versions (we Buckeyes are not terribly creative), but another bunch of sloppy, noisy garage rock.....this time from my backyard......never heard of ANY of the bands here, but the Central Ohio scene HAS given us Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, New Bomb Turks, Gaunt, The Afghan Whigs, The McCoys, Toxic Reasons, The Breeders,  and more.......hey WE rock here, too, as they do in Italy, thusly, thanks to Caveman at "Paradise of Garage comps" for finding this one to begin with, brought a smile to my face!
