Import, Box Set
2007 repress a limited box set of the second set of ten volumes (Eleven to Twenty) on ten separate CD's in LP sleeve replica packaging. The Rubble series is a timeless anthology of that great but ever-so-brief period in the mid to late 60's between 1984-1988, chronicling the very best of 60s British psychedelia, freakbeat, & whimsical pop. The scene bursted out from its R&B roots and influenced much of the music produced around the world both at that time (and still today). Each volume of this series presents the invdividual CD volume in a card slipcase along with the original LP artwork and an informative 100 page booklet with heaps of background information and discographies of the groups featured on the particular set. Liner notes are courtesy of Bam Caruso label owner Phil Smee. All ten volumes and housed togtether in a sturdy full colour clamshell box. Past And Present

Unlike some other series where after about 4 discs, the quality heads seriously south, these are very consistent up to the very end.
And yes, there is actually a difference between the first 10 and this set. The first ten do contain more heavy green dripping fuzztone psychadelia and these tend to veer towards more pop psychadelia though we're not exactly talking about Ron Dante ... perhaps it's just the sound quality is a bit better, they simply might be more seasoned musicians or perhaps they were taking the lead of where their more success brethern were taking, I'm not sure. I was not alive then and I'm no music historian. All I judge on is quality and the genre - these sets are obviously a big commitment financially and not for everyone but if you're a serious or avid collector of music, this is a great set with tracks you will have to search years to find again ... if you love psych of any kind - you absolutely need this set.
