If you enjoy the early Beatles songs, you’ll enjoy this. Very similar style. Not sure why the cover art is so dark, but whatever. I wouldn’t rush to shut this off if it came up outside this project, but it wouldn’t be first on any playlist of mine. You know, not bad, but not amazing either. Anyway, give it a listen.
Here Are The Sonics!!! was released in 1965 by record label Etiquette.
It was re-released in 1999 in mono byNorton Records.
Cub Koda of AllMusic wrote that the album “show[s] a live band at the peak of its power, ready to mow down the competition without even blinking twice”, calling it “Another important chunk of Seattle rock and roll history.”
