$300 FINE

This compilation from July 2006 is probably the most enjoyable set I\’ve ever pieced together. On a now defunct \’Garage Forum\’ someone came up with the great idea of making a garage comp from their 45s bought between April – June 2006.

Those who entered the task had three months to come up with a decent set of records to compile but no one could spend more than $300. This was quite a stiff budget but it meant looking around and finding good deals and cheap 45s.

From memory I think I was just within budget, spending about $290 on the records on this comp. I chose to call my set $300 Fine which is obviously a nod to The Litter LP titled $100 Fine. Just my way of sticking with the garage theme. I also used a rather cool picture of The Wailers from 1966 to adorn my sleeve.

MOONRAKERS – I\’M ALL RIGHT
BRAVE NEW WORLD – CRIED
FUGITIVES – MEAN WOMAN
MIDNITERS – NEVER KNEW I HAD IT SO BAD
CHOIR – I\’M GOING HOME

ANGLO-SAXON – YOU BETTER LEAVE ME ALONE
BAD SEEDS – KING OF THE SOAP BOX
EXOTICS – FIRE ENGINE RED
MAGICIANS – LADY FINGERS
EMERGENCY EXIT – MAYBE TOO LATE
POWER PLANT – SHE\’S SO FAR OUT SHE\’S IN
FLOWER CHILDREN – MINI-SKIRT BLUES
ESCAPADES – MAD MAD MAD
PAT FARRELL & THE GREAT BELIEVERS – GOTTA FIND HER
LORD AUGUST AND THE VISIONS OF LIGHT – LET ME BE ME
COUNTDOWN 5 – ELEVATOR
WAILERS – YOU WON\’T LEAD ME ON
