VARIOUS ARTISTS: A Fistful of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Volume 13, Parts 2 & 3: 2 x CD

The long-running garage rock compilation series A Fistful of Rock ‘n’ Roll finds its way to Steel Cage Records after prior volumes were released on TeePee, Victory, and Devil Doll. Like the other volumes, this new double CD features a healthy mix of known and unknown garage bands from around the world. I can’t imagine too many people wanting to listen to both CDs in a row, but there are tons of really great tracks from the likes of the Makers and Hot Dogs to make this compilation worthwhile. It’s infinitely more fun than the boatloads of shitty label samplers piling up in the world’s dumpsters.
