The Remains were the undisputed kings of the mid-'60s Boston rock scene. Using the Rathskeller club in Kenmore Square as their home base, they delivered raucously energetic shows night after night. Such was their reputation that the line to get into the Rathskeller often stretched from the Square all the way to Fenway Park! Their instrumental, vocal and songwriting prowess were all well above typical garage rock status, drawing comparisons to the Rolling Stones among others. Music critic (and future Bruce Springsteen manager) Jon Landau wrote in Crawdaddy! magazine that "They were how you told a stranger about rock 'n' roll."

Scoring a local hit with a cover of Bo Diddley's "Diddy Wah Diddy," the band signed with Epic Records and recorded their debut LP, The Remains. Comprised almost entirely of self-written songs, it contained their initial hit along with subsequent singles "Why Do I Cry?" and "Don't Look Back." They appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, performing the explosive "Let Me Through" (a performance captured on Sundazed single's 231) and were selected for the coveted opening slot on the Beatles' final U.S. tour. All signs pointed to huge success for the future.

Perplexingly, that success never happened. They were unable to chart a national hit and their debut wound up being their sole LP released during their original tenure. Dubbed "America's great lost band," their renown grew through the decades as progressive generations of intrepid collectors rediscovered them. Much belated recognition has been given to the band, notably in America's Lost Band, the 2008 documentary of their improbable story. They have been the subject of a stage musical, All Good Things, and they have returned to performing periodically, having lost not a bit of their legendary live power. About a recent show, The Nashville Scene wrote, "There was no audible way of differentiating between the Remains circa '66 and the Remains circa '11. They ripped it up like they had just walked off the set of Hullabaloo. It was amazing and inspiring and just a boatload of pure rock 'n' roll fun." Sundazed Music, ever in search of deserving music for discerning fans, has painstakingly remastered their debut album, adding a full LP of bonus tracks. Sundazed has also combed the vaults for additional releases from this phenomenal group. Add these treasured titles to your music library and help transform the Remains into America's greatest FOUND band!

          7” single featuring previously unissued Ed Sullivan Show live performance! The Remains are indisputably remembered as Boston’s finest rock group of the sixties. Yet it’s the group’s less celebrated connection with New York City that continues to pay dividends for their ever-spreading legion of fans. Of course, the main source of Remains-music has always been their classic run of recordings cut at New York’s Columbia Records. But in one of the coolest events in history, the Remains also...

They’ve been called “America’s Lost Band.” Actually, the Remains were not so much lost as they were woefully under-appreciated. Meeting at Boston University in 1964, they were soon drawing capacity crowds at The Rat. Led by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Barry Tashian, the Remains were an incredibly tough four-piece with talent and chutzpah to spare. The group was soon recording for Epic...
