Various Artists: Pebbles, Vol. 10
Twenty-four mid-'60s garage favorites, none available on CD before. It's
above the median standard of such compilations, including numerous better cuts from the
original vinyl Pebbles series: the Leather Boy's truly strange "I'm a Leather Boy," the
Clockwork Orange's Electric Prunes-influenced "Your Golden Touch," the Uncalled For's "Do
Like Me," and the Others' "I Can't Stand This Love." There are also a number of tracks that
are relatively unfamiliar, the most interesting of these being "Leave Me Alone" by the Canadian
Squires, who would turn into the Band (yes, the Band) a few years later.
The Canadian Squires track is probably not taken from the original studio tapes, but from an acetate or one of the old vinyl single releases from 1964 and 1965.
