Release notes

“14 amazing, newly discovered, unreleased tracks; High quality sound restoration and mastering; CD package includes 12 full-color pages with full liner notes by Mike Stax. The Misunderstood may just be the greatest lost band of the 1960s. They had the gifts, the creativity, the chemistry, the ambition, the drive — all the ingredients to make it, plus that extra indefinable ‘magic’ in their sound, which in its purest moments seemed tuned to a wonderful and strangely magnetic frequency. Torn apart by the Vietnam War draft the band was denied the breakthrough they deserved. Through reissues of tracks like ‘Children of the Sun’ and ‘I Can Take You to the Sun’ their name has become a legend with connoisseurs of sixties garage and psychedelia. However, until now nobody has heard this amazing set of unreleased tracks recorded in Riverside, California and London, England in 1965-66. The only surviving acetates were carefully stored away by drummer Rick Moe after the original band broke up. They were only recently rediscovered. These historic discs contain some of the most exciting music they ever recorded, from raw, pounding garage blues to electrifying psychedelic rock. Lavishly packaged and lovingly remastered, The Lost Acetates is guaranteed to blow the minds of all fans of sixties garage and psych.”
