Lost Souls Volume 3

In my research for 45RPM, I came across an amazing wealth of Arkansas-specific information on the Pysch Of The South website and a killer compilation of early garage rock, which I talked about here.

Harold Ott, Arkansas’s own homegrown authority on garage rock, has released another fantastic compilation

Lost Souls Volume 3

I have been listening to this collection since late summer. I definitely  have my favorites, like “I Can See Your Ways”  by  Richard Vanover & Bob Ralph and “Hush Puppy” by The Spyders. The version of ” Little Latin Lupe Lu”  by Don Norviel & the Visions I dig way more than the Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels cover.  And you have to love “Fouke Monster”  by Billy Cole & the Fouke Monster created to promote the cult classic film Legend Of Boggy Creek.

The entire collection is worth owning the hard copy: 29 tracks, a fat insert with super detailed liner notes and pictures – This is what all albums should be!  Many of the songs compiled in these collections have been gathered from original acetates, 45s, and reel to reel tapes not found anywhere else. Not only is it an exciting and obscure part of Arkansas’s music history, but many of the songs are infectious and will make their way into your playlists.

Lost Souls Volume 3 is availble to preview & purchase at CDBaby and Amazon

ALSO: check out the complete Lost Souls documentary to see the story of the garage rock band out of Jacksonville who are the namesake of these labor-of-love compilations.

Thanks Harold for all the hard work!

As a member of the ‘Lost Souls’ I am delighted that Harold is being recognized for the hard work and dedication he has put into preserving these long obscure groups, and their contributions to the music scene in Arkansas. Thanks Harold, and thanks Juli for seeing their importance.
