Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: Friday At The Hideout
|This CD compiles some vital Detroit garage from 1964 to 1967. Some band names are more familiar than others. The Underdogs great "Don't Pretend" is here along with their "The Man In The Glass" with the surf guitar. Their instro "Batman" (not the TV theme) is a very nice inclusion. Also you'll find the Four Of Us, the Henchmen, T.R. and the Yardsmen, the Mushrooms, one of dozens of bands called the Fugitives, and Doug Brown and the Omens.|
Track by Track Review
Melodic and fluid, and just a little reverbed, with island whammy and a playful riff, "Batman" is a solid track with an infectious and eerie hook. This is an original surf tune, not the Neil Hefty or Lee Hazelwood numbers.
