Genre: Garage, Psychedelic Rock | Label: Past, Present Records

The Past & Present label presents a new kind of psych-rock compilation: Mindrocker. With the vast amount of '60s garage and psych compilations that have appeared from around the world in the last few years, it's easy to understand why so many fans of the genre have felt overwhelmed by the deluge. There are, however, a select group of compilations that are widely regarded as genuine must-haves for collectors of '60s singles. Alongside Nuggets, Rubbles, Pebbles, Endless Journey, Chocolate Soup For Diabetics and the Perfumed Garden, Mindrocker stands out as a treasure trove of '60s U.S. psych and garage music. Widely applauded for its high sound quality and detailed liner notes, courtesy of Hans-Herman Pohle, Mindrocker is widely-regarded as the launching-point of many a U.S. psych collection as well as an affordable way to locate rare singles by bands which went on to record classic albums for major record companies.
Probably the biggest of all recent re-issue projects by Past & Present, the Mindrocker box is by all means a heavy one, gathering all 13 volumes originally released in Germany in the ‘80s. Instead of the obligatory “obscurity” tag, most commonly used on ‘80s comps, each volume features at least an entry or two that has grown to be considered for a garage-punk classic in the meantime, sometimes even being refered to as “oldies”, in the most commercial meaning of the word. There’s no way an average ‘60s nerd can get too excited these days after seeing names of The Seeds, Shadows of Knight, The Music Machine, ? & The Mysterians, The Charlatans, The Leaves, We The People or Fever Tree, but I’m sure every single one of them will still find enough to drool upon among the 196 tracks included. The ones making my own moptopped covered little brain melt are some of the entries that I haven’t managed to get hold of in a regular physical form so far (mp3s, CD-Rs are no good). Most of all, I’m thrilled to finally have both The Family Tree and Euphoria non-LP single sides, and I’m almost just as happy to have the pre-Fun And Games The Sixpentz single ‘Imitation Situation, The Gas Company’s Jack Nitzsche produced folk rocking protest ‘Blow Your Mind’, or the pair of John Fred And His Playboys’ gritty mid’60s r’n’b ‘Something’s Going On’ and ‘Boogie Children’, without having to dig deeper than necessary.
So just how much garage rock do you really need? This 13-disc box set begs that particular question, and not just because of its bulk. In 1979, as interest in rare 1960s garage rock singles was growing among collectors and music fans, the first Pebbles compilation appeared, and (in the manner of Lenny Kaye's influential 1972 collection Nuggets) featured 16 classic obscurities from the mid-'60s. The first Pebbles LP spawned a flood of similar albums over the next ten years, and in 1981 the first volume of the Mindrocker reissue series appeared from Germany. Compiled by Hans-Hermann Pohle, the Mindrocker albums (named for a celebrated single from the band Fenwyck) featured many notable U.S. garage and psychedelic rarities in better sound quality than most similar compilations; several of the early garage compilations were of dubious legality and fidelity (the early Pebbles volumes were nothing to write home about from an audio standpoint, even though the music was great), while Pohle insisted his albums were mastered from original tapes and were fully licensed. Eventually, the Mindrocker series grew to 13 volumes, and Mindrocker: Anthology of 60s US-Punk Garage Psych is a limited-edition box set that features the complete series on CD, along with a 96-page booklet with notes on every act featured. There's plenty of fine music here, but with close to 200 songs, some of these tracks are just filler, and others barely qualify as garage rock (the Hardly Worthit Players' novelty version of "Wild Thing" as sung by "Senator Bobby"? Jeannie Piersol's lovelorn pop ditty "Gladys"?). Just as importantly, a lot has happened in the world of '60s garage anthologies since the Mindrocker series kicked off in 1981; Rhino's 1998 Nuggets box set is rightfully considered to be the Gold Standard of garage rock compilations, and the Mindrocker box doesn't hold a candle to it in terms of killer-to-filler ratio, sound quality, and informative liner notes. While the sizable majority (though clearly not all) of the tracks on the Mindrocker box appear to have been sourced from tapes, the mastering doesn't flatter the sound of the music, and much of the material has a slightly flat, mid-range heavy tone even though better audio quality is now common on such collections. While a number of these tracks were hard to find in 1981, the explosion of quality garage reissues in the digital age has made much of this music fairly easy to track down, and often in superior fidelity. With comprehensive anthologies (or full original albums) by the likes of the Moving Sidewalks, the Music Machine, the Sparrow, We the People, the Fire Escape, and the Blues Things on the market, the presence of multiple selections by all of them here isn't the draw it once was. Given the short playing time of most of the original LPs, most of these volumes could have been doubled-up on CD with 28 songs per disc rather than 14, making the set a lot more portable. And since most of the best material is readily available elsewhere, the Mindrocker box set is going to duplicate a lot of what serious garage fans are likely to already have, with no new discoveries to compensate. Ultimately, only the most obsessive completist garage rock collector is going to need this box, and even then, an awful lot of it is going to be redundant; better to track down the individual volumes relevant to your interests than to fork over for this well-intended but indifferently executed set.
