(Norton 275) Whoa dad! Our first time reissue of this insanely rare 1965 garage band LP features some of the crudest, most primitive lo-fi sixties teen raunch EVER! TWIST-A-RAMA was a local TV teen talent show that ruled the Mohawk Valley in Upstate NY and this album was issued to showcase first time recordings by fourteen local teen bands, all of whom appeared on the TV show! Hank Brown, the host of the show, still rules the airwaves of Central New York State with his top rated morning radio show. The original LP is a highly sought after lo-fi teen masterpiece. This collection of raw crude teen manglers presents the little known regional New York State rock n' roll scene. Cool package includes pix/notes/ interviews plus two newly found bonus tracks! This release kicks off a series of New York State garage sounds sure to please sixties sound hounds who dig their music RAW! Audiophile alert: This album mastered from a mint copy of the TWIST-A-RAMA LP. Due to the primitive fidelity and astonishingly low grade plastic used on the original 1965 pressing, surface noise is detectable. It is presented in the highest possible fidelity.
