Garage Pop Of The 60's: The E-Types Introducing...The E-Types 1965/66 (1995 Sundazed) Flac & mp3@320

Twenty-two tracks, including both sides of their four singles and previously unissued demos, outtakes, and live performances. The four singles are legimitately fine finds if you collect obscure '60s pop-garage. "Long Before," "I Can't Do It," and "Put the Clock Back on the Wall" are outstanding, and the cover of Lennon-McCartney's "Love of the Loved" (which the Beatles never officially released themselves) rates as one of the best unknown Beatle covers of the '60s. Most of the rest of this archival compilation is padding, though, consisting largely of faithful British Invasion covers and some outtakes that are markedly inferior to their singles. It's an enjoyable listen for collectors of mid-'60s rock, boasting considerably more pop-oriented material and accomplished production than the garage norm. But it couldn't be considered in the top drawer of this sort of thing.(

 The band had a great weakness which prevented the big success with a lot of other talented bands: They didn't have enough convincing songs of their own. They had a good performance and very well arranged titles but remained a footnote in the history of pop music. This Sundazed collection make a lot of fun if you like 60s jangle pop music with a light garage feel.
Enjoy   Frank
