The bands self-released "Got Good (if you get it)" LP, recorded between 1969 and 1971, and given the deluxe master-tape reissue treatment here, is a mixture of up-tempo heavy guitar rockers and well-written dreamy acid-folk tracks: in other words, some folk, some folk-rock, a hard-edged bluesy cut with heavy guitar (Messiah) that sounds like Fat (on RCA), and two live songs (Midnight Watch and Driver) with filthy, snarling guitar that sound like they slipped off side two of the Oliver Klaus album. The band members were nominally influenced by the big British Invasion bands (the Beatles, the Hollies), as well as Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Grateful Dead. The live tracks in this set are certainly some of the toughest sounding cuts on this collection. A second Kansas City Jammers LP was recorded during the summer of 1972, but was never released, until now; disc two includes all of the tracks that were meant for that release-all told, 45 minutes of additional Kansas City Jammers music! The "Got Good (if you get it)" album has long been a favorite of psychedelic collectors and those in the know-the Acid Archives entry, for example, is full of compliments for the bands "strong vocals and songwriting throughout." The story of the Kansas City Jammers is probably akin to that of many excellent bands who had short careers. The 24-page booklet has the entire band history, courtesy of an Aaron Milenski interview first written for the legendary Lama Workshop.
