The Spiders- Let's Go Spiders!![66-68 Japan Group Sounds\

Highly Recommended
do leave comments

aka gs i love you vol.3 1966-68

28 tracks of beat and garage tracks
with maybe some psych influences
The Spiders are one of my fav. group sounds
bands after The Mops and maybe the better material
by Golden Cups(the punky garage stuff and not the orchestrated ballads wich their record company forced them to do)
and some other bands i have on various compilations

most of the stuff The Spiders made between
66-68 is excellent British Invasion Beat/Garage Rock
with sometimes some psych influences
which makes you tap your feet on the ground!

allmusic review:
The Spiders recorded from the mid-'60s through around 1970 in a variety of styles. However, this 28-song compilation is exclusively comprised of the 1966-1968 British Invasion-garage-psych material with the strongest appeal to international collectors. Looked at in the cold objective light of day, it couldn't be rated among the best such stuff to pour forth from non-English-speaking lands, although it's certainly brimming with frenzied energy. Their weaknesses were common to many such bands, whatever their native language. Their original material was frequently derivative, and lacked the melodic invention and instrumental skill of their inspirations; many of these are feverish but basic R&B-pop hybrids. Getting past all that -- few people are checking this out expecting something on the order of the Yardbirds or even the Chocolate Watch Band, after all -- it's brash, if oft-rudimentary, beat music with some unusual twists, particularly in the ants-in-the-pants raunchy vocals, sung in both Japanese and English. "Kuroyuri No Uta" is a clever psych-pop number that appropriates a vocal hook from the Association's "Cherish"; "Lucky Rain" is a good illustration of their occasional facility with brooding, minor-keyed tunes; "Summer Girl" illustrates their occasional bent toward Beach Boys-influenced California pop; and "Kaze Ga Naiteriru" and "Ano Niji Wo Tsukamo" summon some genuinely weird moods with their mix of growly spy guitar and cinematic orchestration.

hey you guys do realise that the lead singer of the Spiders (i so should have looked up his name to avoid embarrassing myself). He went on to play Monkey in the Japanese `Monkey Magic' series.
