Now Sound Is Here: Dallas 66
In 1966 Dallas was a Mecca for great bands and two of the best, the Exotics and the Esquires, are included on this album. The Exotics began as a rock and roll band in 1959, but by 1966 were recording psych-pop and folk-rock gems. They released three singles, one of them, "Come with Me", reaching the top ten. The Esquires formed in 1965 and recorded four singles, mixing folk-rock with a hard edged sound. The wild "Come on Come On" and "Judgment Day" are what make the Esquires legendary today. Dallas '66 contains all seven of the Esquires' original songs and seventeen tracks by the Exotics, including rare radio promos and unreleased material.
