Like the sixties French Freakbeat compilation, Scarcest Garage Records (pt. 1 & 2) is a compilation I often frequent that has little to no information to be found online. In the 21st century, this fact alone adds yet another element of genuinely non-manufactured retro-cool to its already smoldering 26 tracks. This is herky-jerky garage rock at its finest.

Like some of my favorite comps, this one was passed on to me, some time ago, from fellow sixties garage rock enthusiast/collector, with only the caveat of “you just gotta hear this.”  He was right – I did, and you do.

Elsewhere: A number of garage-centric music blogs have begun since I originally posted these tracks in 2007.  Check out my current favorite, the exceptional Garage Hangover.
