Note about this collection:

When we began looking into this project we approached singer/guitarist Jimmy Hansen who was at first apprehensive about doing anything with the material; stating, “that was then, this is now, life has moved on” As discouraging as this was, Jimmy still said “I will send you what have and you can do what you want with it”. From there we began to work on getting this best material we could gather together for this project having little to no help.

What we received was a disc of including the 5-tracks from the ‘Carry the Torch’ EP lifted from vinyl and the ‘Electric Thunder’ sessions taken from the only known surviving tape of the sessions. Master tapes of both the EP and later sessions any longer exist lost to time. We then would track down several cassette versions of ‘Carry the Torch’ to be used as source material since it was the only option. As for the ‘Electric Thunder’ sessions (tracks 6-13); they had previously been restored by Hansen from a damaged bootlegged cassette found in the ruins of a burnt down house. Before obtaining this copy, Hensen himself did not even have the recordings.

What is collected here is probably the best presentation of the NEW YORK material that will ever be released, restored and re-mastered by the best possible means in the effort to keep the music available so that it doesn’t one day disappear.

Hope you all enjoy,
