Considered by the great Muddy Waters as the "only American group comparable to the Rolling Stones," rediscover and appreciate The Seeds, in a compilation of rare titles for fans of high-end psychedelic rock.
The Seeds are inseparable from the Californian hippie movement. Under the direction of Sky Saxon, they record the irresistible "Pushin' Too Hard." But before this enormously successful endeavor, Richard Marsch (alias Sky Saxon) had already produced four singles in the "Doo Wop / Rock 'n Roll" style.
Fans appreciate the reunification of the older Seeds tunes with more recent material, recorded shortly before their separation. "Bad Part of Town," "Die He Die," "Love in a Summer Basket," "Wish Me Up," "Shuckin' and Jivin'," "You Took Me By Surprise," rival the best of their repertoire.
The Seeds and, above all, Sky Saxon carved out a solid reputation of unbridled savagery. They occupy a coveted place in the category of the great freaks, among the best representatives of the garage bands of the West Coast.
