Probably THEE best compilation of Michigan rock from the '60s and one of the very best garage-oriented compilations of the era, and a pretty diverse one too. There's hot White soul from the Rationals, a rare single by the Amboy Dukes, raw folk-rock from the Human Beinzs and the Underdogs, burning garage punk from the Unrelated Segments, and even a castrato Four Seasons imitation by Tim Tam & the Turn-Ons. The heart of the collection, however, are the five early, pre-Elektra sides by the MC5, which are garage rock at its most metallic and furious, and the mid-'60s hard rock sides by Bob Seger, a good decade before he broke nationally.

Just found your site from Digital Meltdown. Thanks for the great music.
Being from Michigan, I actually remember most of these groups.
Any chance you coud re-up these as Z-share is a no go.
Regards, Dave.
