Spread over four sides of two 33rpm 12-inch
albums, this is a love letter to the 7-inch single.
Since 2016, author Jon Savage has collaborated
with Ace Records in a mapping of the mid-to-late
60s in terms of 45rpm singles. We began with
1966 and time stretched backwards and forwards
over 96 songs and four double CDs – one
collection per year between 1965 and 1968.
We did discuss releasing the series on LP format
but each compilation would have needed a triple
album. So, by way of a résumé, we’ve decided to
compress the four years into one year per side:
beginning in early 1965 and ending in very late
1968. The intention is to give a flavour of each CD
compilation, and an idea of their reach across the
two albums.
You’ll also find songs that have not been
released on any official vinyl album before,
including the single version of ‘Rain’ by Kak, the
overdubbed ‘People! Let’s Freak Out’ by the
Freaks Of Nature and the preview pressing of the
MC5’s ‘Kick Out The Jams’, to name but three.
Pressed on 180g orange vinyl, housed in a heavy-
duty gatefold jacket, with copiously illustrated
track notes on the inner bags.
