This reissue of Everywhere Chainsaw Sound, the legendary 1960s US garage psych compilation, is available on 180 gram vinyl in a strictly limited, hand-numbered edition of 500 copies. Featuring tracks from many legendary 45s, it is presented with remastered sound and includes the original insert and a deluxe, full-color, double-sided info sheet with detailed notes and rarely-seen pictures, making it an essential addition to any psych connoisseur's record collection. "In a field full of weeds the earliest garage psych/punk compilations still possess a charm that endears them to collectors. Back in the early 1980s a number of now extremely rare compilations were briefly available via mail order. They almost immediately disappeared onto the shelves of a small but hardcore group of US '60s rock fans. Everywhere Chainsaw Sound was one such compilation that originated in France and was produced in a microscopic numbered edition of only 100 copies. Housed in a plain white card sleeve with handmade artwork, it remains, even to this day, almost unknown by the majority of '60s US garage psych collectors. Inspired by Elektra's Nuggets LP, grey area compilations such as Pebbles, Boulders, and Acid Dreams (PAPR 1007 LP/2094 CD/2096 CD/2097 CD) created a demand for underground compilations that grew into the US garage rock reissue market that has since produced many thousands of records. An unceasing demand for music from probably the most exciting period of rock and roll has turned into a minor industry. Thankfully Everywhere Chainsaw Sound is once again available as a limited edition high quality vinyl reissue with improved sleeve notes and sound. You may have some of these recordings on other compilations but somehow the mystery excitement and sense of discovery that fuelled the first era of the garage rock revival is captured on this iconic compilation." -Richard Allen, founder of the Freak Emporium, now writes for Shindig!
