This is the collected works of East coast basement garage psych group Mouzakis : their full LP from 1971, a ralher expensive collector 's item, with their singles, including 4 unreleased tracks .from 1967, as well as some singles under lhe name Q( lheir previous band, The Fabulous Pharoahs, with 14 extra trac!es in addition.

The band started with R&B rock standards, adapted on its wtry bits Q( rock 'n roll, early rock, and stayed moslly rather on the edge with a more garage rock sound They learned songs like from Animais, and did a cover .from Blues Magoos. The co/lection Q( singles is like a quick browsing through some standard style influences of the time, while the vocal approach and directness keeps their approach, except for their latest tracks, often a bit raw and primitive, garage-like. * Groups of that time like The f~1lO, Animais and even the Rolling Stones very much liked to keep that rawness Q( garage alive in their more into the 70s directing rock expressions, also F abulous Pharoahs and Mouzakis fitted with that approach. Their LP however shows something extra. The tracks are a bit longer and especially the first two tracks show complex rhythm use in combination with their adapted R&B irifluence into rock territory. "Magic Tube " has a complex fast rhythm, (bass and drums) almost.fun~'Y in its bluesy rock way, while on top is slower bluesy singing, with rhythm guitar, creating a unique kind of complexity I have not heard elsewhere. "Rock Around the clock" with additional organ parts continues a bit in the same direction. Unfortunately not all tracks are recorded in very good conditions, making them sound more garage-like. Most other tracks sound more familiar than these openers, but they still sound more attractive and more convincing than the singles.
