NOTE- CD VERSION has 5 BONUS TRACKS!
PEBBLES VOL. 1 is now a legitimate anthology of rare and vintage garage rock singles from the style's 1960s heyday.
The point of the PEBBLES compilations has always been that they take it as given that the listener is familiar with the best-known works in the style, such as the Count Five's "Psychotic Reaction."
So these tracks are filled with the more obscure and often downright unhinged, like the Elastik Band's "Spazz," one of the most incoherent and bizarre singles ever released by a major label, or the Outcasts' apocalyptic study of disaffection, "I'm In Pittsburgh (And It's Raining)."
This makes PEBBLES VOL. 1 an excellent second step into the garage rock underground. Charity Stafford

Due to a mastering error, the tracks printed on the cover copy for the CD differ somewhat from the tracks actually included on the album. Two songs were listed on the tray card that are not included on the album: "Crackin' Up", by The Wig (which was included on both the original LP as well as the BFD reissue) and "I Need Love" by The Third Booth (which was to have been a bonus track). Also, the Shadows of Knight song is split into two tracks on the CD with the intro as unlisted track 13.
The last track by Echo & the Bunnymen is listed as "surprise track" on the cover.
