About the Artist

Originally Newcombe was heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones' psychedelic phase - the name comes from Stones guitarist Brian Jones combined with a reference to cult leader Jim Jones, but his work in the 2000s has expanded into aesthetic dimensions approximating the UK Shoegazing genre of the 1990s and incorporating influences from world music, especially Middle Eastern and Brazilian music. The Brian Jonestown Massacre has been somewhat of a musical commune for many respected musicians over the years, a band from the 1990 s that has spurned other great bands ever since. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Warlocks, The Silver Rockets, The Black Angels, The Ravenettes, The Dilettantes (to name a few) are all part of this musical family tree. Indeed, this is a band that has witnessed many incarnations, since its inception in San Francisco in 1992.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
Not sure what the previous reviewer is on about slating this wonderful collection on spurios audiophile grounds! Let's say I'm no stranger to hi-fi having everything from electrostatics, ls3/as, valves, you name it. BJT make grooving hypnotic rock tinged sounds we love and this is an essential collection of their singles. Stuck it on and enjoy the sounds from Anton and the boys. I saw them live a good few years ago and they were excellent; - if you get the chance do go and see them. Get this for your collection and listen to the music.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great collection - awful remastering 12 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The pluses:

A handy all-on-one-place collection of amazing songs by one of the most underrated performers of the last twenty years.

Quite a few 'first time on CD' tracks.

An interesting overview of TBJM's influences.

The minuses:

Needless to say a significant proportion of the original source material is long gone.

The first disc sounds pretty rough in places, and definitely suffers more when played through anything remotely resembling audiophile kit. Unfortunately these days that's pretty much all hifi gear.

Where original source material has been used the remastering isn't great. The seperation is poor, the soundstage is too thick, yet there are some nasty overbright moments.

Both discs offer very low volume wav files. You'll have to crank up your system much more than usual if you want to play them at a decent volume.

A shame. This material definitely deserves respect. It deserves to be given the best possible opportunity to shine, cos shine it does - at least the songs do.

A wasted opportunity. This compilation could have functioned as an excellent 'introduction to' collection.

Instead it isn't worth the asking price.

Avoid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pay attention to the small print...Only for the serious fan. 26 Jun 2012
By J. Dunivin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"THESE versions previously unavailable on cd"...many of these songs sound like demos or contain a rough quality not found on their CD issues. Despite lengthy remastering, very few of these songs are from master tape sources. MEANING, they have been remastered from vinyl sources or 2nd/3rd generation cassettes or(perhaps) DAT's...Despite the rough quality of the songs, they are very unique in that they were special to their 7" & 12" releases. Longer versions & very unique mixes make up this compilation. Different arrangements & takes makes this compilation completely different than any other BJM release. If you are just getting into the Brian Jonestown Massacre(and i sincerely hope you do...), make the Tepid Peppermint Wonderland you're starting point. Great, great starting point to the BJM catalog however, it's versions of "hide and seek" and "swallowtail" are worth it by themselves...This compilation is cool but only if you have most of the BJM catalog and are looking for something unique & different...FYI, The 12" of "Not if you were the last dandy on earth" B-side was not included here (as stated in the liner notes) because there was a manufacturing error during the printing of the 12" that caused the vinyl to skip constantly...How do i know? I bought one, took it home and played it, took it back to the store and got another one, took THAT one home and played it, and realized that it wasn't a coincidence that both 12" were manufactured improperly...Thanks for buying music instead of stealing it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you never heard by the Greatest Band in the World! 17 Feb 2012
By Dano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have followed this band ever since I heard a song by them somewhere on the radio. From that moment on I was hooked and was not satisfied until I had every album they recorded. Me personally thinks "Strung Out In Heaven" was their masterpiece, and if you don't go immediately and get this (the prices are incredibly low right now-a real steal)stop reading my review and go buy Simon and Garfinkel. Anyway, this has all the singles that came out before I got "turned on" to this incredible music. So this gives me a feeling of completion with the bonus that it's all remastered to the hilt. Really sounds like Anton cared what it would sound like. Buy this if you never heard BJM before because it also contains their latest single, which is incredible. Words like "astounding" and "Heavy" spring to mind. It's like the classic "Codeine" played by "The Spiders From Mars". It has to be heard to be believed. Then, to close disc 2, you have the BJM changed to a band called Acid which sounds just like the name. Get this or miss a world of music you will always be missing in your hollow life. Make Anton Newcombe the Rock Hero he's meant to be!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hard Pill to Swallow, but a Good One in the End 9 July 2012
By Kirk A. Gauthier - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I first heard of the Brian Jonestown Massacre while watching the rockumentary, "DiG!". Shortly after the release of "Welcome to the Monkey House," I became a pretty big fan of the Dandy Warhols (still am), so I was intrigued to learn of the friend/foe relationship of Dandys frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor and BJM mastermind Anton Newcombe. The rockumentary is a fascinating view and gives a lot of insight into the recording industry, but it also made me rather interested in the music of Anton Newcombe and the Brian Jonestown Massacre.

2008's "Tepid Peppermint Wonderland - A Retrospective" caught my eye, but the pricepoint was a little steep for a band from whom I'd only heard fractions of songs. My local library had nothing by the BJM for me to borrow, so I had to look around for a relatively cheap album in order to jump on board. Right around the holidays, the price of this compilation dropped to $4.99, so I figured it was the perfect opportunity to give 'em a shot. I'm glad I bought the comp., but I'll admit it's not something I think I'll listen to all that often.

First of all, the audio quality on this compilation isn't the best. The first 9 or 10 songs sound as if they were recorded in an aquarium with equipment stored in an abandoned warehouse for 30 or 40 years--very muddy. It's not until "Not If You Were The Last Dandy On Earth" that the audio quality becomes clear. And, from that point on, this comp. gets really good. Unfortunately for me, while the Dandy Warhols clearly have their sound rooted in the fuzzy, spacy distortion of '60s pop and rock, the BJM can't seem to leave that sound behind.

This compilation, honestly, is not for those looking to get into the band. Like J. Dunivin said, "This compilation is cool but only if you have most of the BJM catalog and are looking for something unique & different." If only "Tepid Peppermint Wonderland - A Retrospective" wasn't so darn expensive....

EDIT (July 31, 2013): Okay, so I may have lied when I said, "it's not something I think I'll listen to all that often." Since writing this initial review over a year ago, I've listened to this comp. probably a dozen times, and I like it more each time I listen to it. Originally, the only song I really dug was "Maleka," but other favorites have popped up since then: "She Made Me," "Evergreen," "Convertible," "Methodrone," "Anemone," "This Is Why You Love Me," "Lantern," "When Jokers Attack," "Prozac Vs Heroin," "Nailing Honey to the Bee," and "Thoughts of You." The truth is, these are songs that will grow on you more and more each time you listen to them. If at first you don't like them, try try again!
