Pebbles is a compilation of US underground and garage single record releases from the mid- to lates. It had a limited original release in and a more general release in where the album was identified simply as Crackin Up - Various - Pebbles Vol.
One (Original Artyfacts From The First Punk Era) ; this album was followed by several subsequent Pebbles compilations and albums Im Theater - Emil* - Wahre Lügengeschichten in all.
This album is nowadays known as Pebbles, Volume 1 and was originally issued in as Pebbles, Volume One: Artyfacts from the First Punk Eraan obvious riff on Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Eraa similar, groundbreaking compilation from The Pebbles album was originally released as an LP on Mastercharge Records in as a collaborative effort of several collectors in a limited edition of just copies.
The album had no catalogue number and a plain pink-and-black cover sheet; it had the appearance of a bootleg recording. Greg Shaw was probably one of the collectors involved in this album, since the on-line listing of the original liner notes is marked as being "Courtesy of Greg Crackin Up - Various - Pebbles Vol. One (Original Artyfacts From The First Punk Era). The AIP label that he founded released the later volumes in the series.
The Mastercharge label appears to have been created only for this release and is apparently not a real record company. The release of this album on BFD in gained the record and the Pebbles series wide recognition.
AIP kept the LP in print for many years. Although the CD has bonus tracks and a colored cover, the two formats are largely the same album and even have similar catalogue numbers. Inapparently in honor of the 30th anniversary Margareth Do Rosário - Love 1 this landmark compilation album, Bomp began offering a reissue of the first Pebbles album in clear vinyl, complete with a reproduction of the original pink insert.
As with the original release, this special reproduction is limited to copies. Due to a mastering error, the tracks printed on the cover copy for the CD differ somewhat from the tracks actually included on the album.
Also, the Shadows of Knight song is split into two tracks on the CD. Also, when AIP issued the early volumes of CDs, they omitted some tracks from the corresponding LP for the stated reason that they were already widely available on other anthologies. The music on this first volume sets the tone for the obscure music collected in the Pebbles series. The first cut on the LP includes a skip during Crackin Up - Various - Pebbles Vol. One (Original Artyfacts From The First Punk Era) break — on the original record, according to the liner notes — scrambling the line: "You say you love me, girl, but why are you so cold", but otherwise not really affecting the enjoyment of this genuine classic.
Despite the fact that Bailarina - Charlie Haden / Jan Garbarek / Egberto Gismonti - Magico Litter released three albums and is among the most well-known bands on this album, "Action Woman" was almost unavailable without this skip for many years.
For instance, the bonus track at the end of the CD is a cover of this song which also omits the line. The frantic cover of the Count Five classic by Positively 13 O'Clock is from a one-time studio session that includes members of Mouse and the Traps ; it also appears on a retrospective album of this band that was released on Eva Records. Songs by well known bands are normally not included on Pebbles albums unless they are curiosities, and the track s by the Shadows of Knight — famed for their major hit with Van Morrison 's " Gloria " — is no exception.
Following a brief clip of "Gloria", the band introduces themselves with corny yet charming answers — sample: "What kind of fans do you prefer? Remarkably, the band issued a reunion album 30 years later in with all new material. Gary Mullinax, writing for The Morning News of Wilmington, Delawarefound the album's sound "crude" but "also powerful".
