Live Ledge #188: Back From the Grave

To say I was thrilled when I heard that 2015 would see new Back From the Grave releases would be stating the obvious. I've long been a fan of the influential Crypt Records series, and was excited to discover what rare '60's garage rock tracks had been unearthed since the last volume was released in 1996.
The new editions, volumes 9 and 10, live up to the standards of the previous releases. One could even argue they are superior to the others, as technology has obviously come a long way since the original eight versions were put out. Given that these tracks are mastered from surviving 45 copies, having the ability to clean up the muck and scratches is a godsend.
Tonight's episode presents a set for each specific volume, and it's two hours of pure energy. If you're a fan of noisy rock and roll from any era, you should check out not only this show but each of these records. Long out of print, the first eight are in the process of being reissued to go with the two new releases.
