Editorial Reviews

Comprehensive two CD set that collects the raw energy of influential '60s Garage Punkers The Seeds into one energetic package dripping with sweat! As top purveyors of '60's Garage Punk, The Seeds also embraced Blues, Psychedelia and straight ahead Rock in their short career (1965-69). Most famous for the hit singles 'Can't Seem To Make You Mine' and 'Pushin' Too Hard', they epitomized a sound that would later be saluted by the seminal Nuggets compilation and which proved highly influential on '70s US and UK Punk and New Wave groups. Essential listening. 49 tracks. Music Club. 2007.

2.0 out of 5 stars Will we ever hear the masters? March 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Seeds have been dismissed since they first arrived on the scene. This collection won't help that appraisal. Too bad. This is primal, grinding stuff that in the original vinyl configurations rocked with a unique, twisted snarl like few others from that era. The first album in itself, in its mono original form, is unlike any other. But this collection is just another excuse to recycle poor-sounding replicas of the masters. Plus, it lacks one of The Seeds classic, "Out of the Question, often covered by bands in modern times. Too bad Audio Fidelity and Steve Hoffman were unable to secure the masters as they attempted to do several years ago due to "Sky's people," whoever they may be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grungy rechanneled sound March 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nice package....attractive and it has almost all of the tracks by this minor group that you would want, but they took the GNP Crescendo album master tapes...complete with tons of horrible-sounding rechanneled tracks and grungy, distorted stereo.

The sound is no better than the old GNP CDs that have been around for years....which were 10th generation copies of the masters for the vinyl LPs.

Finally, the track are in no particular order and there's no information about each track fits into The Seeds body of music.

It's apparent that the guy who prepared this collection (Pat Gilbert) knows nothing about the era and is defintively not the guy to have done this reissue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Pushin' Too Hard October 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Seeds. Their music was a coloured mist. In the mid-1960s, they could blow the Rolling Stones off the stage. Jim Morrison envied the talent and charisma of frontman Sky Saxon. Products of L.A.'s famous Sunset Strip. Headliners with the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Love, Buffalo Springfield, etc. The originators of the flower generation who started as a crack underground band and peers of garage bands such as ? and the Mysterians ("96 Tears") and the Shadows of Knight ("Gloria"). Innovative enough to reach the Top 40. They played the Hollywood Bowl and The Scene in New York. All the cuts (49)---raw and alive---are featured on this two-disc CD. The 14-minute "Up In Her Room" opus.
Two versions of No. 1 hit "Pushin' Too Hard." The rare and previously unreleased "Sad and Alone."
"Two Fingers Pointing On You" from the Jack Nicholson movie "Psych-Out." The mind-blowing "Evil Hoodoo" from their classic first LP "The Seeds." The live cut of "900 Million People Daily (All Making Love." These cuts refute the notion that all Seeds' songs sounded the same. If you dig keyboards,
Darryl Hooper is the guy for you. In his prime, there was no more distinctive lead singer than Sky Saxon. "Pushin' Too Hard: The Best of the Seeds" is a trip back to the psychedelic 1960s. Dig it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to psychedelic land April 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Oh yeah this is a must have for my collection. I don't agree with the snobs claiming the sound is muddied,10th generation masters, etc, etc. This recording is 46 years old for gosh sakes,and punk is supposed to sound like this. Give it a rest you HD worshipping morons. I have a decent system, nothing over the top but it sounds just great.I picked up a new copy of this 2 cd collection for less than 10 bucks, a great value. 49 songs and over half of the selections I had never heard before but I am quite pleased with this set. Even the live selections sound great,complete with screaming girlie girls in the mix. This blows away much of the tripe being played today

4.0 out of 5 stars The Seeds are a Groove July 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Having only heard 2 Seeds tunes in my life- I was somewhat skeptical that they could fill a double CD with 49 listenable tunes. But they proved me wrong. I would say that 2/3 of this CD is excellent- from the classic garage tunes on CD 1 to some of the surprisingly good blues on CD 2. I've listened to this CD several times since I purchased it- it's too good not to keep playing. Groove back to the 60's...
