Golden Nuggets Like the Syndicate of Sound & Ralston Too

"Just like the title says golden nuggets! Songs not available on cd until this compilation. Of course every knows the Syndicate of Sound's "Little Girl" but some of their lesser know songs are great too. However the stand out song on this cd is Gerry (Ralston) and Leslie's (Knutson) "I Like That Girl". Why wasn't this song a bigger hit? This is one of Ralston's true classic compositions. He was one of the great underground legends of the folk rock era. His lovely harmonies along with Knutson makes this song one of my top ten favorites of the 60's!! Let's hope Hush records will go into their vaults and pull out more Ralston and the Syndicate of Sound for a Hush Records Story Volume two."
Another fascinating collection of mid-60s SF-Bay Area sides

"Founded in 1958, Sunnyvale's Hush Records was the first home of R&B vocalist Joe Simon. By the mid-60s, Hush was devoted to various flavors of rock and found it's greatest commercial success with the Syndicate of Sound's 1966 punk anthem "Little Girl." This volume chronicles Hush's later years (1965-68), while Simon's earlier sides are due on a separate compilation this Spring."Little Girl" is featured in a new stereo mix that, despite being a substantial improvement over the commonly anthologized version, doesn't deliver the punch of the original mono single. No matter, as the disc's treasures include several followup tracks from the Syndicate of Sound, pop gems by Gerry & Leslie and San Jose's Stop Sign, Stones-influenced cuts from Merced's Brogues, and Sonics-influenced grunge by Boise's Wm. Penn & The Quakers.Previously unreleased tracks, alternative takes, extensive liner notes, picture sleeves, concert posters and rare photos complete another stellar package of Bay Area music history."
