Product Description

Big Beat's Seeds campaign wraps up with a definitive anthology of their entire run of singles from 1965 to 1970, a collection that includes some of the band's best-known material including Can't Seem To Make You Mine, Mr Farmer and their lone Top 40 hit, the garage rock touchstone that is Pushin Too Hard. Singles such as Satisfy You, The Wind Blows Your Hair and Bad Part Of Town have become as equally renowned in the years since. And Seeds B-sides are almost as popular - tracks such as Out Of The Question, The Other Place and Wild Blood are all fan favourites. This exhaustive collection is drawn from the original singles masters, which in most cases have never been available since their first issue; most cuts feature unique mixes and different edits. After leaving the GNP Crescendo label in 1969, the Seeds moved to MGM for two swansong 45s, both included here, never before on CD. Bonus tracks are Excuse Excuse with a different vocal, issued on a French EP, and the original, unedited version of Pushin' Too Hard . In keeping with Big Beat's deluxe reissues of the Seeds regular albums, Singles As & Bs 1965-1970 is presented in a digipak with an extensive and heavily illustrated booklet with full notes by Alec Palao.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful compilation or a greatest hits? 30 Aug 2014
By Jurg

Big Beats Seeds catalogue overhaul comes to an end with not a whimper but a very big bang, in the shape of the first-ever comprehensive overview of the band's 45rpm releases.

Some say that the music of the Seeds came across best on a 45rpm record. Well, Big Beat used the correct mono mixes and edits as featured on the original records. I never had any vinyl single of the Seeds because I was born in a different time and place, so I can't control if this is true. But I can trust Big Beat. The last two singles (released on MGM) are in stereo. But by then the magic was over. Sky Saxon sounded more like a Jim Morrison without balls and Daryl Hooper on keyboards was the only original member left.

The cd comes with a 28 page booklet with some historical in-studio reflections of Harvey Sharpe (the non-member studio bass-player) and band-members. The booklet ends with a singles discography.

If you don't know the music of the Seeds, this is the place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars SINGLES IN MONO--A TIME MACHINE 4 Oct 2014
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
For Seeds' fans this is worth checking out. It has the band's singles (A's and B's)--in mono--plus four stereo sides before the band broke up, on MGM. Plus there's some non-album tracks that give added weight to this collection which are always nice to hear. We're not talking about great musical breakthroughs here--it's The Seeds--but under Amazon's rating system (3 "stars" means "It's Okay"/4 "stars" means "I Like It") I had to go with a 4 "star" rating. But not everything here rates this high, so be aware.

The sound is great--if you like mono--the singles sounding like they did when this music came blasting out of kid's home-stereos way back then. This is the first time the correct original mono 45 RPM singles mixes and edits have been used, and it's telling. From "Can't Seem To Make You Mine" with it's nasty-boy vocals, to "Daisy Mae" which is a cross between rockabilly and r'n'r, to "Pushin' Too Hard"" which is prime Seeds, to the "Pushin' Too Hard" soundalike "A Thousand Shadows", to the weird "Six Dreams", to "The Wind Blows Your Hair" a hit record that never was, to The Stones' sounding "Satisfy You", this is one great collection of singles. The booklet is very nicely done, with an informative essay on the band and the music which is a continuation of The Seeds' story from the recent Big Beat album reissues. Included are period photos and other ephemera that helps give this music a sense of it's place in time.

The Seeds were (perhaps) at their best on these concentrated slabs of garage rock. And this was before that term was in widespread use. The Seeds were up against bands like The Who, The Kinks, The Stones, and other great British bands along with many great U.S. bands of the era, so they never really measured up to those high standards. But The Seeds had that certain sound that--on their singles especially--brought their lyrics (albeit nothing too deep) and their sound into a sharp focus. And that's what this collection of singles is all about.

If you own the recently reissued albums (also from Big Beat) you need this collection of singles to round out a complete picture of The Seeds. Seeds' fans re-choice!
