The Jacks- 2nd Live Show(Live 68-7-24)

1968 Japan Psychedelic Rock


a quite good sounding live lp (originally 200 pressed in 1968)
a must have for fans of japanese psych and garage.
this reissue is limited to 500 copies.
it took some time for me to track this one down on slsk

most of the stuff is from their first album,but also contains one track from super session
but this version is superior (11 minute version of Battlefield in my head)

there are also some tracks wich dont apear on any album like:Daisy,Where and Gone My Yumiko

some of the not so much info i could find about this bootleg:

The Jacks were a 60's band from Japan who sang mostly in Japanese and didn't seem as fixated on America as the rest of the bands of the time
What you get is a pretty nice boot of this super rare, fan club only LP.
If you are expecting tons of over the top, crazed action you might be a bit perplexed.
What you get is an amazingly tight set of most of their hits with flashes of over the top guitar and vocals.
Very Japanese, very amazing.

Originally released in an edition of only 200 copies in Japan in 1968, this legendary psych group's rarest record is made readily available at last in a very limited, numbered edition.
Housed in an eye-popping, four-paneled sleeve, which unfolds into a giant poster.
Limited to 500 numbered copies. Originals: $1500+"

go get it!

Thank you for always introducing good music.
There is always new discovery in this blog.
I heard this sound source, and I was charmed very much by JACKS.
May you upload other sound sources of JACKS uploaded before again?
Thanking you in advance.

Incredible can never get enough of classic Jap psych, ala The Jacks and Les Rallizes Denudes- nothing comes close.

Thank you dirk!
I'm a Japanese and experienced the Jacks live about 37 years ago in Osaka.
That was so excellent, I've deeply moved by Jacks sounds, and I've never seen such a live performance since then. This time your mp3s remember me that days. I enjoy your blog very much.

Perhaps the older Jacks postes could be refreshed, but only if you have the time.
thank you very much & hope you keep getting well.

I really don't like psychedelic music, what I really loved is reggae roots but this bands it isn't my style. My brother who can't live without Viagra Online is a famous Dj on town and he is always mixing electronic.
