Under the influence of The Beatles, the Group Sounds movement swept Japan in the mid-1960s. This esteemed compilation -- exceedingly difficult to find since its original release in 1990 -- gathers a dozen of the wildest tracks in the genre, spanning surf rock, fuzzed-up R&B, and even psychedelia. It's sure to thrill fans of the further reaches of garage rock. Includes tracks by The Beavers, The Carnabeats, The Spiders, The Voltage, The Mops, D'Swooners, The Bunnys, The Golden Cups, and The Savage.
