Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first heard about this album in Uncut magazine along with the tantalizing story that singer/songwriter Fred Cole had been around and rocking hard since his days on the original Nuggets compilation. Being a fan of the original US punk sound i bought the album. What can i say, this is a revelation. if you love the Stooges you'll love this. If you love the MC5, or more importantly, Sonic's Rendesvous Band, then this will be right up your street, 56 songs or hard rocking brilliance, and yet all with a swagger and groove that can only be achieved by the chosen few. Incredibly, there's not really a duff track across this 2 disc set. Disc one is the winner, so good in fact that it could take a while to get around to disc two. Disc two is a littler more slow tempo. The fact that Fred Cole has been making fantastic garage/hard rock for over forty years and is still doing so is something to be absolutely celebrated. Buy this album NOW, you won't be disappointed.

For those who don't know Dead Moon, they're a Garage-punk trio playing high energy rock'n'roll sounding like a cross between The Stooges, Rolling Stones and Love. Singer Fred Cole is a sixties survivor with a ragged but soulfull voice and a real rock'n'roll attitude. This compilation, though good, is a bit one-sided: We get most of their louder moments, and i agree it's what they do best, but the Dead Moon also have great psychedelic ballads, sounding like early Love or Byrds. I don't get it: Why no "echoes to you", " or "dead in the saddle"? Also, i'd include some of their covers, they have recorded very hi-energy takes on "Hey Joe", "Time has come today", even "Folsom prison blues". It's a pity, because this CD is all that most people will listen from Dead Moon. Anyway, this is still a great buy. Get it, and then look for the rest of their albums, as well as Fred Cole's current group Pierced Arrows, 1960's Lollipop Shoppe or 70's hard-rockers Zipper

Diamonds in the rough 18 Sep 2006
By Clambeard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent introduction to America's most overlooked rock and roll band. Dead Moon is the real deal, playing unadulterated old-fashioned no frills rock and roll. Fred Cole, guitarist, singer & songwriter, opted out of the baloney of the music biz in the late 60's, forsaking the potential to be a big rock star. Instead, he did it himself. Dead Moon embodies the DIY ethic. Fred even creates his own master vinyl, using the record lathe he bought from the Kingsmen. The record lathe used to make "Louie Louie".

Fred might be the only artist featured in the Nuggets box set who is still making garage rock. He was the singer in the Lollipop Shoppe (name created by record company) and their tune "You Must Be A Witch" is still performed by Dead Moon.

But that is all background and would mean little if the music wasn't real. But it is. Whether the subject is drugs & paranoia (Room 213), the struggles and rewards of fidelity (I Won't Be the One Who Walks Away), or the life of an outsider (Poor Born), Fred brings authentic emotion to his words and both he and Toody, his wife of many years and the bass player, sing with conviction.

Dead Moon may be an acquired taste for those who have been raised on studio perfection. This is RAW. Not the fake raw of so many corporate rock bands, but the real rawness of genuine emotion and rock and roll power. Is real rock perfect? Hell no! Dead Moon gives it to you like it is, warts and all.

Buy this album, and learn the songs. Most importantly, go see Dead Moon live. Every night, some band, somewhere, is the best band in the world. When Dead Moon is playing, they are that band. If they don't come to your town, go to where they are. Dead Moon is much more popular in Europe than in the States, so maybe a trip is in order. Or make a pilgrimage to Portland, Oregon to see Dead Moon on their home turf with a hometown crowd, singing along to every song. I've seen hundreds, if not thousands of rock bands, and no one brings the real power of rock and roll like Dead Moon. Listen to this Cd at top volume, with your favorite beverage or three, and every night can be a Dead Moon Night.

Positively cathartic garage-folk-punk 28 Dec 2008
By TimothyFarrell22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dead Moon is just about as raw and direct as rock 'n' roll can get. Fred and Toody Cole formed the band when they were both forty and stopped the project at age sixty. Don't let the age throw you off. Both of them have seen it all, from garage to psychedelica to punk, and manage to rock out far more than most bands half their age. They had convictions and refused to be taken advantage of by the greedy music industry, recording all their own records and releasing them on their own accords. While this is certainly commendable, it can make their music difficult to find. Fortunately, Sub Pop stepped in and released this double disc compilation of the band. And honestly, while many bands, even great ones, can grow monochrome if listened to for an extended period of time, "Echoes of the Past" can be played from beginning to end without becoming boring. The lyrics are fiery and impassioned, displaying an intelligence and conscience often lacking from garage punk bands (one of my favorite genres, don't get me wrong). The music itself is raw, yet proves love of creating music easily trumps any technical ability. What Dead Moon lacks in polish, they make up for in passion. If you like your music shallow and full of gloss, avoid this band. However, if you love gritty yet real rock 'n' roll made by clearly dedicated folks, get this compilation and also see the documentary "Unknown Passage: The Dead Moon Story". Few bands could be called positively life-changing and Dead Moon is one of them.

Dead Moon: A Must Have 4 Feb 2009
By B. Thornton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In this compilation 2 disk set there are many of the Dead Moon hits and lesser known jems. Since it is hard to find many of the original albums this is the nest best thing. Dead moon has influenced many rock bands with its rootsy take on the grunge genre. Songs like DOA, Kicked Out-Kicked In,and Walking on My Grave have tremendously catchy riffs and hooks that will leave you wanting more. Hardly a song here that won't beg to be listened to. One of my favorite bands and collections

This is some great rock n roll. Don't know what else to say, other than if you like no-frills, raw rock, you'll love this.
