They never struck the commercial success of their townmates The Gentrys or The Box Tops, but with their unique blend of blue-eyed soul, folk-rock and a good dose of British Invasion, The Guilloteens are considered by many to be the best band to come out of Memphis in the '60s. This 20-track collection presents, for the first time in one place, the titanic trio's complete output, along with rare related 45s and amazing side ventures by the band or various members. Disc one of this deluxe double CD release has their complete set of 45 As & Bs including long time compilation classics such as 'Hey You', 'For My Own', 'I Sit And Cry' or 'Wild Child'. Disc two presents the band's "Odds and Sods" including among others the complete 45 A & B side releases by pre-Guilloteens instro band The LeSabres, a rare 1966 local single release by The Memphis Marks featuring Laddie Hutcherson plus an amazing 45 by hitmaking brother and sister duo Nino Tempo & April Stevens, recorded with The Guilloteens on backing instrumental duties. Along with a detailed band bio and cool pictures collected in a 16-page booklet, this CD captures and distills what The Guilloteens stood for during their halcyon three-year existence.
