Product Description

The top band in Houston, Texas of the mid-1960s was Neal Ford & The Fanatics, a tight and professional outfit responsible for some of the best garage sounds from the region. Led by Ford and featuring talented writer-members Lanier Greig, Jon Pereles and Johnny Stringfellow, the Fanatics ruled the roost in the city at clubs including the Catacombs. Once they signed to Nashville indie Hickory in late 1966 they seemed destined for national stardom. Despite regional hits, the group never achieved the visibility they deserved, but many of their records are now coveted by 60s rock collectors, such is their quality. Good Men is a long-overdue survey of Neal Ford & The Fanatics best moments in the studio, and runs the gamut from expertly-produced and performed commercial pop and folk-rock to freaky psychedelic experiment and the gnarliest of 60s punk. It features several of the Fanatics popular singles for Hickory and cuts from their lone album for the label, as well as fantastic earlier sides released on the Houston indies Gina and Tantara. Well over half of this anthology has never appeared on compact disc before, and there are several unissued titles that add immeasurably to the group s reputation. The package is rounded out by a well-illustrated, in-depth booklet with notes by Alec Palao, that tells the tale of these cornerstone Houston 60s rockers.

I had come across 3 or so of this band's songs previously on various Garage comps but it's been a pleasant surprise to see and hear additional material. The sound quality is pretty good and the quality of the songs is strong throughout so they definitely had some depth to their songwriting and musicianship.I would say that this band aren't quite so rough and ready as some of their contemporaries but if you like 60s Garage then this compilation is definitely worth checking out.

FINALLY - Neal Ford & The Fanatics on CD! Essential 60's Music! 25 Nov 2013
By stretch - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I just listened to the new Neal Ford & The Fanatics CD in its entirety - WHAT A TREAT! "I Have Thoughts Of You" is such a great song, and still my favorite (along with "Movin' Along"), but I really enjoyed every song on the CD. Each of the unreleased tracks is special in its own way - I liked the Byrds-like jangle of "Better Slow Down", and the backing track of "Every Night A New Surprise" reminded me of "Incense and Peppermints"! It was also cool to hear the full endings of several of the familiar songs. It is great to see Neal Ford, Jon Pereles, John Cravey, Lanier Greig, Dub Johnson, Johnny Stringfellow and Steve Ames finally getting some richly deserved recognition with this CD release of their work! If you are a fan of 60's music, you need to put "Good Men" on your Christmas wish list!

Here are some details about the individual tracks:

60's Nostalgia 27 Jun 2014
By Vicci T. - Published on Amazon.com

As a teen in in the '60s I spent many weekends at hops and concerts rocking to this band. The Fanatics were one of the most popular of that time. I'd long lost their records over time, so having the chance to to enjoy the music again was awesome. Also the accompanying literature was a huge bonus.
