ALEC PALAO PROJECTS
ACE/BIG BEAT RECORDS
As Bruce Tahsler was conducting the interviews for Garage Bands From The 60s Then & Now, reissue producer Alec Palao was gathering vintage recordings by these same East Bay legends. The result is You Got Yours! East Bay Garage 1965-1967 on Ace/Big Beat Records, which includes rare material by many of the artists whose histories are featured in the book, providing an essential soundtrack. Collected on this 26-track compilation are rare singles by the Baytovens, Peter Wheat & The Breadmen, Just Six, Harbinger Complex, Shillings, Epics and Gotham City Crimefighters, along with unreleased sides by the Spyders, Bristol Boxkite, Towaway Zone and even Bruce's outfit the US Male (the title track, no less).
You Got Yours! is available from Amazon and all good online retail outlets, as well as the more discerning stores. Click on "You Got Yours" below for more info.
Alec also compiled and produced the 4 CD box set and book Love Is The Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-70 for Rhino Records, which features several East Bay acts including the Harbinger Complex and Immediate Family. This set was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Historical category in 2008 - as Bill Quarry produced the Complex single, that makes him a GRAMMY-nominated producer!
