CD Reviews

Very Very Large Can of Whup Ass
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While little Jimmy Osterberg and Wayne Kramer were cutting gym class to sniff glue, these five young dudes were churning out ageless kick-ass punk rock crazy style! Simple instructions: calm yourself, play "Strychnine" very loud, and lose your mind on the punk rock that puts 90s teenie would-be punk to shame! This will be the best punk rock album you will ever buy, and it was recorded almost 40 years ago! This is, I believe, their first record, and is by far the best. Start here and throw out your shabby altrock."
Yeah baby

"This is not the Sonics' first album. It's a compilation of the best of their first two albums from 1965, plus a couple of non-album singles. I think it was first released in the mid 80's as an LP on Etiquette records.

I can't comment on the sound/mastering quality of this particular release, but the song sequence looks excellent. They nailed most or all of the best cuts.

On the other hand, everything they recorded in 1965 was great. You may want to get the complete catalog as available on Norton (2 separate CDs on mono) and/or Ace (Psycho-Sonic rerelease, some in good stereo, no Christmas cuts). The price on this "Full Force" item seems a bit inflated, perhaps because it is out of print. But the other options will give you twice as much music for your money.

Avoid the later Jerden stuff unless you are a completist."
