The Complete Liberty Singles 2CD

Gary Lewis & The Playboys
The Complete Liberty Singles 2CD

The definitive Gary Lewis & the Playboys
collection is back! This 45-track anthology
came and went in a heartbeat a few years
ago; the critical and commercial response
was so good (and continues to be—used
copies sell for megabucks online) that
we decided to reissue it. It’s still the
ideal way to explore the recordings of
one of the great singles bands of the
‘60s, featuring the A and B-side of
every single they issued on the
Liberty label. Many of these original
mono singles mixes and most of the
B-sides were completely unavailable
until this collection came along, and remember,
these are the mixes you heard come cracklin’ out of your radio
back in the day. The annotation by Ed Osborne features interviews with
producers Bones Howe and Snuff Garrett, drummers Hal Blaine and
Jim Keltner, singer (and Gary’s “ghost” voice) Ron Hicklin and even
Mr. Lewis himself. A Real Gone resurrection!
