NOTE- Tracks are completely different than the LP version. Get em both!

Twenty-four Socal garage-band obscurities from 1965-69, more psychedelic in tone than the average Pebbles collection (though not every track is psychedelic-influenced). It's the first time on CD for all selections, a few of which had been previously unreissued.  RICHIE UNTERBERGER

According to the liner notes, the track by the Standells had not been reissued before now; and this is probably the first-released version of the early Monkees hit "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone".

One of the members of the Second Helping was Kenny Loggins, and this single is his earliest known release.

Velvet Illusions are actually not from California but were a Yakima, Washington based band; while often mentioned as having heiress Patricia Hearst's former boyfriend Steven Weed as a member, the band actually featured a different Steve Weed.[1]

The final track is from an unreleased acetate by the band that is best known for "I Never Loved Her" (included on the Pebbles, Volume 8 CD). MARTIN WINFREE
