Squires - Going All The Way With The Squires (1966)

You know their superb folk-punker "Going All The Way". You loved their sugary Beau Brummels styled "Go Ahead". Now here's more of that great garage band from Bristol/Connecticut. In 1986 Crypt (Crypt LP 008) released an album that contains not only their unreleased songs but their first 45 under the moniker The Rogues. This early incarnation of The Squires produced the outstanding punker "It's The Same All Over The World". And even if you think you have heard "Gloria" a thousand times, give the version of the Squires a try.

The Squires were an American garage band in the 1960s, who have a claim to being the quintessential example of the genre.
Going All The Way was reissued on the first of the Pebbles compilations of garage tracks in 1979, and its Byrds-like B-side Go Ahead on Vol. 2.

Many thanks.

Really good album. Gloria's got a great guitar tone on it. One of the best covers. Amazing stuff.
