(3) PEBBLES POSTER CREATED FOR THIS SET
To retain the look of the super cool lp size artwork we have the 12 cds packed flat and secured inside the same heavy duty rigid acid free polypropylene envelope as the vinyl version. We couldn't stand shrinking it down to cd size, it's just too amazing.
PEBBLES. THE SERIES THAT INSPIRED THE ENTIRE GARAGE ROCK REVIVAL! In his review of the Pebbles series for Allmusic, Richie Unterberger comments: "Though 1972's Nuggets compilation reawakened listeners to the sounds of mid-'60s garage rock, it only focused on the tip of the iceberg. Behind those forgotten hits and semi-hits lurked hundreds, if not thousands, of regional hits and flops from the same era, most even rawer and cruder. . . . More than any other factor, these compilations [in the Pebbles series] were responsible for the resurgence of interest in garage rock, which remains high among collectors to this day."
NOTE: PEBBLES was originally mastered by Greg Shaw, from old singles from his collection. The first song on side one was even mastered with a SKIP! Bands often perform that song with the skip, to the delight of their audience. We have not remastered or changed the originals in any way. If you want perfect sound quality, this aint the place for it. This is the historical original mastering with all of its flaws and character.
(ABOUT OUR "BOX"_… Better than a cardboard box, if you ask us ! Rigid polypropylene envelope. Button and string closure and flap.
CD version is layered inside the lp sized packaging , a perfect fit, and is secured with inner packaging that includes a bonus LP cover of HIGHS IN THE MID SIXTIES.... perfect for hanging on the wall later . )
