Eastern PA Rock Legends 1966-1968
Cat#: AA-072 Year: 1998 Price: $14.
Best known to '60s rock afficionados for the bombastic garage pounder, "Bad Woman," Pat Farrell & The Believers produced a body of infectous commercial material. Included in this 17-track retrospective are both sides of their two singles for Diamond Records plus plenty of unreleased pop nuggets, early demo recordings and four songs by their early incarnation, the Triumphs. Also of note is that the band penned all songs featured on this disc.

Along with the Farfisa-fueled "Brand New Baby" and the fratty "Hey," this overview showcases their lush, Vietnam protest number "War Boy" (which charted on Billboard), the waltz-like "All My Love," the Tommy James-inspired "Oh My Angel," and numerous other slick pop creations. A special bonus stereo instrumental mix of "Bad Woman" proves how tight and imaginative this legendary Eastern PA quartet was.

Disc comes packaged with an archival 12-page booklet that documents their entire six-year history. (Note: five additional Triumphs tracks circa 1965 can be found on AA-069 Eastern PA Rock-Part One [1961-'66]). All music recorded by Clay Barclay, one of the region's key "behind-the-scenes" musical figures throughout the decade.
