The Haunted (CAN, 1967)

One of Canada's most popular homegrown rock groups in the '60s, though they made no inroads to the rest of North America.

From the English-speaking community of Montreal, the group was very explicit in their desire to emulate the Rolling Stones, and most of their 1966-1968 singles (as well as their sole LP, from 1967) were in a raunchy R&B/blues-rock style. As songwriters their range was pretty limited, and much of their material consisted of covers or thin rewrites of popular blues riffs. Their most successful single, "1-2-5," gained small fame when it was reissued on one of the first Pebbles compilations of garage singles in the '70s. All of their material was reissued in the '80s.

album review (by germt)
reseña del album:
...la banda que nos toca es canadiense The Haunted, a mi me gusta más que los favoritos de Jagger "Ungly"...Unen en este disco canciones incendiarias como "Horror Show" o "I Cant Only Give..." y otras emocionadas como "Out of Time"(Rolling) y "Untie Man"...Pero todo el disco está lleno de buenas canciones hasta 22 con los bonus.

grab it - No Passw
