The New Breed - Wants You (1965-1968)

Finally, Sacramento's legendary New Breed get the full anthology they have deserved for so long. The Breed is best known as the alma mater of future Poco/Eagles bass player Timothy B. Schmit, but this punchy quartet was actually a fine group in their own right, with several collectable singles to their name, including the popular garage band items Green Eye'd Woman and Want Ad Reader. The New Breed Wants You! contains 24 tracks from 1965-68, including all their 45 sides, unreleased material from aborted single and album projects, and several cuts by the combo's latterday incarnation, Glad. As an added bonus, there are three video segments including footage of the band miming on an L.A. pop show in 1967! The package's deluxe 28-page booklet is crammed with mostly unseen pictures, many in color, plus a definitive New Breed history by NorCal '60s expert, Alec Palao. Any fan of quality mid-'60s teenaged rock 'n' roll will want to snap up The New Breed Wants You.
