The JuJus: You Treat Me Bad

 
         
  [BREAK 021 LP]    
  released 2009    
   
 
Since their arrival on the music scene in 1965, the mystique of The JuJus and their lead singer, Ray Hummel, has continued to grow over the ensuing decades (helped along by the inclusion of "You Treat Me Bad" on the first volume of Pebbles in 1979). Their first single "You Treat Me Bad" rose to the number two position on the top 40 and catapulted the band to regional fame in Michigan. The JuJus initially blended
 
   
   
   
 
an impressive brand of folk-rock and British-Invasion sounds with a raw garage band attitude best demonstrated on their classic 45's such as "You Treat Me Bad" and "I'm Really Sorry". In 1967 they opted for a change in sound, documented in their more psychedelic recordings such as "Sometime Or Other" and "If You Really Love Me". Compiled on this release are 14 recordings including all The JuJus classic garage singles, as well as a number of unreleased gems recorded during the band’s existence from 1965 to 1967. A detailed insert contains a retrospective of The Jujus as related by band member, Rod Shepard alongside cool photos and band memorabilia.
 
         
 
"The JuJus never recorded an album but released an impressive series of poorly recorded 
but wonderfully energetic singles on local labels, including the ragged and raw 
garage cult classic "You Treat Me Bad," and if they weren't exactly polished musicians, 
the band certainly understood what made the little girls scream."
