Two thundering slabs of thumpers from the Dunwich Records catalog. Features the Shadows Of Knight, The Luv’d Ones, Things To Come, The Banshees, and absolutely no crumbs! Pressed on colored vinyl!
Chicago was home to one of the most vibrant American rock ‘n’ roll scenes of the mid-sixties and the most prolific outlet for Chicago’s rockin’ teen sound between 1966-67 was Dunwich Records. From its very first commercial release, “Gloria” by the Shadows of Knight, to classics by the Del-Vetts, the Banshees, Saturday’s Children and Knaves (to name just a few), the label was, in retrospect, arguably the most consistent garage rock production house of its era.
The label, with its cryptically named subsidiaries like Yuggoth Music, outrageously hip art department, and amazing roster of garage bands, was formed by three jazz buffs: Eddie Higgins, George Badonsky and Bill Traut. This 2LP collection features two sets of liner notes, one from Traut, and one from garage d’or Jeff Jarema!
