The snarling vocals fronting the fuzz 'n' Farfisa-laced sound of 1966 chart-toppers the Standells epitomized the wild in the streets teenage spirit of Sunset Strip-era Los Angeles as much as anyone! Led by the snotty, post-pubescent voice of drummer Dick Dodd, the entrancing keyboards of Larry Tamblyn and the searing guitar of Tony Valentino, the Standells cut "Dirty Water," then followed it up with a laundry list of mighty, quintessentially American, garage-rock anthems that would one day fuel the eager young minds (and'sticky fingers) of the Stooges, Ramones and Green Day, as well as legions of adenoidal punk-rockers yet to come!

    The Standells’ key albums for the Tower label (Dirty Water, Why Pick On Me, and Try It) perfectly bottled a rebellious wave of sound sweeping across Mid-1960’s teen clubs, radio playlists and record racks. Starting with the genre-defining, proto-punk smash “Dirty Water”, through a series of equally memorable underdog anthems (“Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White,” “Why Pick on Me”) and obscenities (the banned “Try It”), the Standells left an indelible mark on their era.

          The Standells’ amazing string of punkish, tough-guy anthems, like “Dirty Water” and “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White”, define the legacy of mid-sixties garage rock like nothing else.

But for decades, their on-stage reputation rested on an earlier, Pre-Tower label live album documenting the Standells in an unrecognizably clean-cut night club...
