Los Angeles band the Seeds stand prominent amongst the handful of mid-60s garage bands whose influence is palpable in rock to this day. Led by charismatic frontman Sky Saxon, their unique brand of exciting, minimalist rock’n’roll has stayed contemporary. The minor chart statistic of the group’s two original US hit singles ‘Can’t Seem To Make You Mine’ and ‘Pushin’ Too Hard’ belies the fact that the Seeds’ music is known and enjoyed the world over.

The Seeds’ catalogue has been in major need of an overhaul for decades, and now with this spectacular repackage of their debut album, the campaign to reinstate the Seeds long-players to their rightful glory begins. 1966’s “The Seeds” is a fan favourite, featuring both hits, and sundry other staples of their repertoire such as ‘No Escape’, ‘Girl I Want You’ and ‘Nobody Spoil My Fun’. The record still represents the band at their edgiest and most focused.

This deluxe reissue of “The Seeds” boasts the superlative, punchy mono mix, along with ten bonus tracks – eight of which are previously unissued – doubling the length of the original album. These include the unedited take of ‘Evil Hoodoo’, the unreleased ‘Dreaming Of Your Love’ and early versions of the classic B-sides ‘Daisy Mae’ and ‘Out Of The Question’. The 40-page, heavily illustrated booklet examines the Seeds’ early career in real detail, based on fresh research and interviews with the surviving participants.

Compilation and sleeve note by Alec Palao and is presented as a foldout digipak with a deluxe booklet.
