The Roosters have been known among fans and followers of the Californian mid 60s folk rock scene for a long time. Their
 
   
   
   
 
"One Of These Days" b/w "You Gotta Run" 45 has been included on early garage compilations and is a huge favourite among collectors. Less well known is their second and at least as brillant 45 "Rosebush" / "Ain't Gonna Cry Anymore". Additionally there´s a rare 1965 surf/Mersey punk single released under the name "Five More", an early 1965 acetate put down as the Avengers and most of all, three 1966 stunning unreleased folk/garage janglers recorded at Gold Star Studio. This collection finally puts all these gems in one place and unravels the enigmas behind the band. A detailed history of the group emerges from the memoirs of guitarist and songwriter Timothy Ward and the band's vocalist Ray Mangigian. This is embellished with a load of stunning never-before-seen photos. The CD you hold in your hands compiles the legacy of an underrated, but excellent band direct from Los Angeles, the mid-Sixties epicenter of jangle – The ROOSTERS!
 
     
 
"The Roosters graduated from their Byrds apprenticeship with honours;
chiming guitars and melodic bliss make this an essential inclusion for any genre devotee"
