Timeless garage rock wonders

"The Seeds were my favorite American band in 1967, and the same is true today. I don't own this European compilation, but I own every song on it on earlier vinyl recordings or CD reissues. Don't let the editorial comments on this compilation discourage you-- except for "Where is the Entranceway to Play", which is rather silly, these are prime Seeds cuts, from the "Willy and the Hand Jive"-style "Lose Your Mind", to the almost Little Richard-ish "Daisy Mae," to the extended "psychedelic" raveup "Fallin'." The Seeds' music was very simple, very "three chords," and Sky Saxon's voice has been described as a snarl-- but not a note is wasted. Why else do people continue to buy and listen to music that could barely make the charts more than 30 years ago? As primal as Delta blues or Little Richard, and as timelessly American as the Carter Family, the Seeds were not musical virtuosos, but instead tapped into the creation of a sort of garage-rock version of folk music."
