From raw basement garage pop to jangly teen–beat and moody ballads, The Fantastic Dee–Jays sole album from 1966 is without doubt the kingpin of all the local private garage albums from the US. A lost–in–time ¢66 capsule full of pure, innocent vocals, 12–string Rickenbacker guitars and crashing drums. File next to Rising Storm, The Bachs...First ever straight reissue of the original album, master tape sound, insert with notes by their mentor Terry Lee and lots of cool photos.
"Already in 1970s collectors were raving about this teenbeat–garage LP from a locally popular Pittsburgh trio. A dynamite version of the Goliwogs "Fight Fire" followed by the even better Dee–Jays original "Get Away Girl" make for one of the most powerful two–fisted openings on any album from the moptop era. The enthusiastic teen vocals fit the band¢s moody Beatles & Zombies style originals in a way not unlike All Of Thus" – Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)
