Eastern Pa Rock - Part Two [1966-1969] (CD)
Release Date: 01/04/98
The Barclay Story - Volume Two
This 30-song collection documents highlights of the rock recordings produced by engineer/entrepreneur Clay Barclay circa 1966-'69. Originally based in his parents' Orwigsburg, PA home and later relocating to Reading, Barclay's facilities captured the top regional acts, producing over two dozen highly-coveted 7-inch singles. Included in this retrospective is a 40-page booklet bursting with photos, memorabilia and extensive band bios. Both collections are highly recommended for fans of '60s garage, punk, and 100% pure pre-Woodstock era muscular rock. Part Two opens up with the Starlites apocalyptic I Can't See You, a snarling 5-star punker if there ever was one. All of Barclay's subsequent later-period 45 RPM releases are chronologically represented here--featuring solid stuff by the Yankee Rebels, Hustlers 4, Lords, Newluvs, Flowerz, Ethics, Pat Farrell & The Believers, Counts and Other Side. The disc also includes tuff unissued tracks by the Yankee Rebels, Sidewinders, Royal Cavaliers, plus two bonus non-Barclay psych recordings from the Other Side. If you missed this legendary music scene first time around, both volumes of Eastern PA Rock are guaranteed to vault you back three decades when rock was fresh, cars were stylish and TV was cool.
