The Remains have always been regarded as the Mount Everest of garage-rock bands, their steaming, fuzzed-up songs copied in every last swaggering detail by legions of cool teenage combos across the nation. AND the Remains were mind-crunchingly good enough to open for the Beatles on their final U.S. tour in 1966! At last, in glorious MONO, here's the ultimate Remains experience you've been missing! Now beefed-up to a stunning, double-LP, gatefold-sleeve package, loaded with terrific unseen photos and band memorabilia and packed with tight, high-energy performances of songs bursting with memorable riffs 'n' hooks, all rendered in super-crisp production, this '66 masterpiece is essential to anyone who likes their rock 'n' roll undiluted and ceaselessly exciting. It's the first-time-ever reissue of the Remains classic material in MONO with a stunning second LP of single-only sides, plus all the legendary Robin McBride-produced material not included on the original issue. Our lavish, high-definition, double-vinyl, MONO edition of everything you need by the Remains, has been meticulously assembled by Bob Irwin and Remains leader Barry Tashian and features 12 ripping Remains bonus tracks--including one fuzz-raving instrumental from 1966 that no one's ever heard before!--with essential new liner notes by Remains expert Jeff Jarema.
