Product Description

Product Description

The previous three volumes in the Northwest Battle Of The Bands series banner have been widely acclaimed as the best reissues of the stomping mid-1960s teen scene in that far-flung part of the States. Volume Four the latest instalment, is quite possibly the best one yet with another cavalcade of rocking sounds and priceless rarities combining to make a great 60s punk package. Once again Big Beat draw on the voluminous catalogue of Seattle’s Jerden Records for 30 tracks of top-notch Northwest stomping ‘n’ shouting. The lead cut alone, ‘I think I Love You’ by Woody Carr & The Entertainers is a rarely-heard classic of ’66-era grunge, and it’s followed in swift succession by acknowledged killers from the Express, Counts, Ceptors and many others. Familiar faces like the Sonics, Raymarks and Goodtimes make welcome return appearances and there is some blistering punk-psych from the New Yorkers, Brave New World and Emergency Exit. Also, Big Beat continue the series’ strong reputation by once again loading the programme with no less than a full third of unissued material, inexplicably left in the can but eminently worthy of release. With the usual detailed accompanying notes and bevy of rarely seen pix, NW Battle Volume Four is another winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Total Garage 30 May 2009
By Richard
Garage bands were all over the States but what is known as the North West ie Portland and Seattle is Louie Louie country,Sonics country,Kingsmen and Raiders country.So many of these bands have one or other ex/future Raiders/Kingsmen in an almost incestuous thing.
The Sonics are the most famous for never having cracked the Hot 100 and were descended from a group called Jill & the Sonics who were probably high school.
The Sonics song on here is actually quite poor-its a rather daft lyric which mentions "going home to Mum and Dad".How rebellious!!
Best name on here is Jack Horner & the Plums whose contributions is a downer song about Vietman.Personally I'd rather they'd have done a beat version of the nursery rhyme they're named for
A band with the oddball name of Thee Unusuals shows a girl in the line up and who the sleeve notes refer to as one Kathi McDonald but the song here doesn't feature her.Neither does a group called Merrilee & the Turnabouts in clude the girl even though she is Merilee Rush
As usual you get a booklet full of facts'n'info

2.0 out of 5 stars Not in the Same League... 27 Dec 2007
Verified Purchase
Having bought the first three Northwest Battle of the Bands CD's, I held off getting this one because some reviews suggested it was lacking, that it was 'scraping the barrel'. I occasionally DJ, playing this kind of stuff, and because the first three are so good, I relented and bought this too. Surprise surprise...it's pretty poor. The sounds on Vol. 4 are the same as the others, but somehow it seems 'decaffeinated' by comparison. There are a couple of great tracks, particularly the stomping 'I'm Going Home' by the Sonics and 'I'm Walkin' Babe' by Thee Unusuals. But as you can get these tracks elsewhere, I have to say that it just isn't worth it.
