Reissue of ultra-rare early 60’s Dome Records classic LP compilation of Teen Garage Bands from the Baltimore, MD area.
Ralph Johnson, president of Wedge & Dome Records, was also the sponsor of many “Battle Of the Bands” shows throughout Maryland. These shows helped them find the bands that hadn’t already found them, since the grand prize for these shows was to have one of their songs on this album. The second prize at these shows was that they would pay 50% of their expenses to get a track for the album.
These bands made up the Baltimore sound of the sixties- Baltimore’s own contribution to the Garage Band Sound.
Thanks to Get Hip Records, this material is now available again. The original pressing of 500 copies of this LP went out of print in 1966, and original copies now sell for $200 and up if you’re lucky enough to run across one!
