Though they couldn’t boast the raw talent of contemporary Los Angeles rock outfits like Love, The Doors, or The Byrds, the four disreputable-looking longhairs known as The Seeds outpaced them all for sheer attitude. The Seeds' first two singles, “Can’t Seem to Make You Mine” and “Pushin’ Too Hard,” were brilliantly simple songs whose already-considerable angst quotient was upped immeasurably by singer Sky Saxon. He didn’t so much sing as spit out his lyrics in a brattish, insectoid whine. The indignant, accusatory stance of songs like “Nobody Spoil My Fun” and “Evil Hoodoo” anticipated punk's revolutionary anger by at least a decade and ideally complements The Seeds’ rudimentary but brutally effective music. This collection compiles the entirety of The Seeds’ first two albums, with the exception of the Diddley-ish “Lose Your Mind" from The Seeds’ 1966 debut. Though the absence of that track might irritate completists, this collection nonetheless is an effective summation of early career of one of Los Angeles’ greatest garage rock groups.
The All Music Guide's dismissive review can be safely ignored. The Seeds produced several first-rate garage/protopunk tracks, not all of which can be had from iTunes. In addition to the classic "Pushin' Too Hard", which AMG seems to admire, this two-LPs-on-one-CD package also includes the great "No Escape," "Evil Hoodoo," "Mr. Farmer," and "Tripmaker." There are plenty of weak tracks here, but that is true of almost all LPs by mid-to-late-'60s bands. iTunes needs also to offer later tracks such as "Fallin'," "Night Time Girl," "Satisfy You," "The Wind Blows Your Hair (Alternate)," "Painted Doll" and "A Thousand Shadows."
Ignore the 1st bad review- this classic Garage download is killer.
Fun garage rock- the original reviewer mistakes brilliantly economic arangements for ineptness. Filler tracks? I suppose, but I was born in 1972, so even the "filler" sounds valid & magical to me. Repititious? More like hypnotic. So was Chuck Berry and nearly every Blues artist who inspired these boys. This is timeless Agnst/Garage- for all teenagers 16-60 years of age. A great bargain too- this disc costs 18 bucks or more at the mortar & bricks store. I hope I-Tunes completes the Seeds catalouge. Doc
