Record Store Day 2014 limited edition on clear vinyl!
Picture sleeve with rare photos and new notes by the Standells' Larry Tamblyn!
The Standells are one of the most successful of all garage rock bands, with their signature song "Dirty Water" having been a huge nationwide hit in the sultry summer of 1966! True fathers of punk rock, they were touring later that year to support the success of their hit record when they were professionally captured on tape opening up for the Beach Boys at a University of Michigan performance as they served up a raucous, raw live helping of their most famous record—now featured on this limited edition that puts you as close to a mid-’60s frat fuzz party as you can get! “Dirty Water” is a tireless anthem, a song for the hip-and-happening whose legacy shines in this rare recording. Also includes “Twitchin’,” a previously unissued 1963 instrumental from the group’s earliest days, predating their first record. Plus, recollections about both recordings from original member Larry Tamblyn, housed in a picture sleeve featuring rare photos that evokes the look and feel of 1966. Live and raw energy from the legendary Standells—on clear vinyl!Live 1966 punk in action—professionally recorded!
