Hey, thanks a million for this set! Now I don't have to rip it from my vinyl.

One question, though: what happened to track 7 on side A of LP 1? It's listed as Hey Little Girl by The Chasers on the back of the box. Instead, you have Makin' Love by the Dirty Shames.

Is it a different track order on different pressings, maybe?

Thanks again!!

hello, very cool blog and good compil, but I detest some words in this album "unpsychedelic" or "antihippie", I think it's so stupid, we can appreciate teen garage and garage psychedelic too, what's the probem? it's rebel music what's all,

Well, Crypt Records kinda wears their opinion on their sleeve. But to be fair, GPU is exactly what is advertised on the box. The songs aren't psychedelic and anyone looking for the equivalent of a Time-Life 60's retrospective on groovy west-coast hippie music are warned off. It's not a comment on who can or cannot listen, but a message about the music inside.

I agree with you about that compilation but when Tim Warren of Crypt write on the (superbs)" back from the grave" compil :"ignored psych love crap summer of 67" or laught about lee joseph (who making remastering of "peebles" and "fuzz flaykes"), and when the pictures described zombies who burn Hendrix LP's I think (and I'm not a hippie!) it's a few reducer or childish (excuse my poor english),
cordially, good new years day

@Dr psych

I agree with you. I think most people who like garage music just roll their eyes at that kind of hyper-tribalism. It's one thing to dislike something like hippy music. It's another to go on and on about it ad infinitum for decades. Having said that, I think I share Tim Warren's sentiment about the zombies burning Hendrix LP's. But then again, I'm sure if Mr. Warren were to look at my record collection he would disapprove of a good portion of it.
