A regular vocalist on ABC-TV’s Shindig!, and cast member of American International Pictures’ Beach Party series, DONNA LOREN was a recording artist for Capitol Records in the mid-’60s, cutting one classic soundtrack LP: Beach Blanket Bingo. But there’s so much more to the story.
These Are The Good Times: The Complete Capitol Recordings reveals Donna to be an extraordinary vocalist creating Spectorian-like wonder with some of the finest talent in Hollywood during the golden era of pop. Participants include Wrecking Crew members as well as legendary producers DAVID AXELROD, STEVE DOUGLAS, and arrangers JACK NITZSCHE, BILLY STRANGE, and H.B. BARNUM. Even the BEAU BRUMMELS appear on a track (‘It’s Gotta Be’), along with GLEN CAMPBELL.
In addition to her album - presented from the original MONO masters for the first time on CD - all 5 of her original Capitol singles circa 1964–1965, are also here. Rounding out the collection are 8 previously unreleased tracks that will leave you baffled as to why they were left in the can!
The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes penned by three-time Grammy nominee Sheryl Farber that feature the participation of Donna herself. Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

Track listing as above.
BMX Bandits are a Scottish 1960s-influenced guitar pop band who have been making music from 1986 to the present day. They have shared members with other Bellshill bands Teenage Fanclub and The Soup Dragons.
True heroes of the underground certainly the Scottish music underground defiantly of the Bellshill scene. Duglas T. Stewart has been the mainstay of this band that has featured members of The Teenage Fanclub and The Vasalines. Their sound is as much west coast Americana as it is west Scotland
Their songs are full of heartbreak and humour mixed with a laid back guitar sound that amongst many others attracted the attention of Kurt Cobain who was famously photographed wearing their T-shirts and claiming that they were the only other band he would like to be in.
Gettin' Dirty includes the single of the same and the Love Come To Me single. This edition includes all the b-sides and the fantastic cover of the Jonathan Richman song Summer Feeling perfect for the great summer we are all about to enjoy. It also includes sleeve notes by Duglas and images dug out from his loft.
