• ESSENTIAL SUNSHINE/PSYCH POP FROM 1966!
• RARE MONO MIX—FIRST TIME EVER ISSUED ON CD!
• SOURCED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
The Cryan’ Shames’ debut album, 1966’s Sugar And Spice, is an exciting launch pad from the Chicago-based sextet. The set’s distinctive mix of youthful garage-rock energy, emerging pop songcraft, and well-chosen rock ’n’ roll and soul covers reflects the spirit of the times and captures the sound of an ambitious band focused on reclaiming America from the British Invasion.
In addition to the album—presented in its original MONO mix for the first time on CD—are six bonus tracks, and all are sourced from the ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES.
The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare photos and extensive liner notes by music historian Scott Schinder that feature the participation of original band members. Mastered by ALAN BROWNSTEIN from the ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
