GARY LEWIS & THE PLAYBOYS: The Complete Liberty Singles (2-CD Set)

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!
