The Olivers - Beekerstreet - The Complete Recordings '64 -'71 Flac

The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana are best known for their highly sought after 1967 Picture Cover 45 on Phalanx Records titled "I Saw What You Did" b/w "Beeker Street". The single got picked up by RCA Records for nationwide release and is today rated as one of the best and most exciting double sided major label garage 45s of the 1960s. A planned second single and LP release for RCA never happened. Long standing rumours of a "Lost LP" however, were confirmed when a one-of-a-kind reference acetate of an unreleased GRT album by The Olivers was found recently.
The album, recorded after several line-up changes in early 1969 at Dove Studios in Minneapolis turned out to be a psychedelic jewel. Unjustifiably shelved 40 years ago, this amazing organ drenched fuzzfest proves that the band does not only deserve the plaudit "Indiana Sixties Rock Heroes", but also had the potential for the national breakthrough that never happened.

 The Olivers "Beeker Street" Released in 1966"Beeker Street" is an incredible blast of garage-psych madness from Fort Wayne's Olivers.(www.nuvo.net)

 It's not easy to get a review of this compilation but to me is what ''nuvo.net'' said about the band that's meets it the best. If you are not a fan of garage music of the sixties maybe this is not what you want :-). To all of the sixties garage fans
ENJOY
