A mid-60s garage classic is given the reissue treatment via Ace Records – The Seeds debut album.
Issued on the Big Beat side of Ace, this is the band’s calling card, featuring the likes of Can’t Seem To Make You Mine and Pushin’ Too Hard, still classics of the genre and still sounding as fresh today as they did back in 1966.
This new reissue, out next month in association with original label GNP Crescendo, features the mono mix (previously unavailable on CD) as well as the stereo version, so two for the price of one. There’s also the full length, unedited take of Evil Hoodoo, the unreleased song Dreaming Of Your Love and early versions of B-sides Daisy Mae and Out Of The Question plus studio chat.
Of course, there’s a booklet, which in this case is a 36-page booklet covering the Seeds’ early career, based on fresh research and interviews with the surviving participants.
15th October is the release date, £9 is the pre-order price.

Also, note that Ace Records is also releasing a very limited edition double-header 45. Pushin’ Too Hard is coupled with Girl I Want You (alternate overdub take 6A), the scarcity of the b-side almost certainly guaranteeing a swift sell out. If stock is left, you can pre-order here for £9.97.
