· Released originally in Japan in April 1968, The Dynamites' Young Sound R&B was, typically for a Japanese album of the period, bulked out with covers of the hits of the day. For us today however their musical translation of such covers is irresistible. For example Judy In Disguise is suffused with over the top fuzz guitar, with a compelling mangling of Mercy, Mercy, Mercy are real draws .
· Naturally The Dynamites shine best on their own songs. Nobosecha Ikenai is a swinging Stones-a-like and Manatsu No Yoru No Dobutsuen is deranged fuzz-damaged garage punk where they sing about "crazy samba nights".
· This reissue of the essential Young Sound R&B is enhanced by the addition of all The Dynamites' non-album JVC singles.
· When, in his book `Japrocksampler', Julian Cope "said that "The Dynamites had been considered outrageous in 1967 for their Blue Cheer version of Summertime Blues", he nailed the sonic frenzy The Dynamites' guitars captured at their wildest. Sadly they did not record their take of Summertime Blues, but their classic single Tunnel To Heaven is one of the wildest, most fuzz-drenched, Japanese records from the `60s. This sums up the reasons why everyone should have The Dynamites Young Sound R&B in their collection.
