The Olivers - Beeker Street: The Complete Recordings 1964 - 1971 (1964-1971 us, fantastic psychedelic rock) Flac

The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana are best known for their highly sought after 1966 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 45's 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. 

This CD captures the incredible talent and versatility of the Olivers and features the band's 1965 – 1969 recordings including their "Lost Dove LP", their sole 45 from 1966, two rare 1965 single releases by pre-Olivers band "The Serfmen" plus a final 7" by post-Olivers formation "Triad". A 12-page booklet documents the band's career as told by its original members and a cache of unseen photos completes the group's 1963 – 1971 history.

This 15-track CD presents the band’s 1969 top notch intended psych album Lost Dove Sessions including the group’s sole double-sided 1966 fuzzkiller 45, two rare 1965 single releases by pre-Olivers garage band The Serfmen, and a rare 45 recorded by former Olivers members under the name Triad.
