? and the Mysterians - Cameo Parkway 1966-1967
While "96 Tears" is by far the band's best song, there are many enjoyable tunes on this 25 track compilation. The trademark rhythmic organ beat from "96 Tears" makes its way onto a number of other ? and the Mysterians tracks. Most notably, "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" sounds almost exactly like "96 Tears" until the vocals kick in. Aside from that one instance when the band appears to be a one trick pony, this compilation is highly enjoyable and very much recommended to people who enjoy garage rock.
Baleeted? Nope. I love classic garage rock.
