The Back from the Grave series seeks to uncover raw sixties garage rock that has a punk-rock sensibility. It's been well over a decade since the last release and it definitely feels like the bottom of the barrel is being scraped here. There are no clear stand outs, although I tend to like the more novelty tinged tracks of earlier comps. That said, this is a solid, albeit forgettable, collection of garage rock that more than makes up for it with some great packaging recounting the stories of tracking down the records featured.
