The Mojo Men: Whys Ain't Supposed to Be (US, 1965/66)

This 21-track disc covers the Mojo Men's first incarnation, when they were a pop-garage group, not the pop-folk-rock act they would evolve into when Jan Errico joined. "She's My Baby" and "Dance With Me" made some noise regionally, "Dance With Me" making the middle of the national charts, but Autumn Records folded before the group got the chance to do any albums. Assembled from a handful of Autumn 45s and many previously unissued recordings, this could be considered the Mojo Men's lost album. But it's really not worth getting excited about, even if you're a garage fan (*). The thumping, monotonous drums and rinky-dink organ patterns can grate, and worse, the material is often so thin as to be puerile. Juvenile lyrics are a mainstay of many garage recordings, but the Mojo Men's compositions could be downright annoying. Their emulations of the Rolling Stones, Kinks, and Animals were pale, though some promise could be heard in a few moodier, folk-rock influenced cuts.
By request, some time ago, another hangover from yesterday, a "jevy" night.
Enjoy yourselfs with some info in the mint-time.
What about the WCPAEB? like em dontch you? coming soon all their lps, ripped in mono/stereo.
(*) Agree with this ? no....mmm

This is a great album but unfortunately the files are corrupted. Many of the songs have static and skip a lot. Any chance for a re-up? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Que tal, el blog Private Garage

esta solo destinado a la totalidad de mis vinilos, los cuales ire subiendo uno x uno, con todo el artwork y demas (reseñas propias).

Pero todavia esta en construccion y falta bastante para que lo habilite o enviee las invitaciones si lo hago privado (cosa muy factible)

Los 3 cds que ha publicado sundazed de The Mojo Men son muy recomendables.

Este fue el primero y en mi opinión el mejor.

Please, comrad, translate in inglish what you write.

In a few words:
I m getting tired of posting for leechers, so I think I ll make a private blog for all my vinyls-cds with the complete art and everything, why arent they posted here?...easy: lack of comments.

(remember:"...If I get tired of posting, blog goes bye-bye!...")

Pablo"Pochola"Cazorla said...

indeed some tracks are corrupted, with strange noises at the beggining, but only for a few seconds (no more than 7/10 seconds)
sorry for the troubles. Cheers

Totalmente de acuerdo con vos Pablo, todo esto parece un torrent o un servicio y encima se enojan, son muy pocos los visitantes que realmente aprecian el trabajo, algunos lo comparan con blogs que cuelgan 10 post por día y ponen su cover art pero no ponen una minima reseña de nada solo el disco, eso si es más parecido a un torrent, veo diariamente a visitantes entrar llevarse 15 post y ni gracias, pero si se quejan por el cover art, entonces me pregunto, si tanto te interesa el Bitrate y el art work, porque no comprar el original, no?, que seguramente luego de retirarse de la tienda dicen gracias. Pero aqui no pasa eso, solo son quejas. Bueno Pablo cuando te decidas lo charlamos. Un abrazo
