The Ringers - Let Them Be Known (1965-70 us, fine obscure garage beat, 2001 release)

The Ringers were more than just another typical '60s L.A. garage band among the myriad in that city to be infected with Beatlemania. The fact that they have remained unknown to even some of the most ardent devotees of mid-'60s rock is an injustice that is at last being corrected all these decades down the track. The Ringers' originally released output consisted of just three 45s that were issued between the years of 1964 and 1966, and a Peru-only LP in 1970. The Vinyl LP presents the band´s most significant beat 'n' garage recordings. including four single sides from the mid-'60s and six previously unreleased recordings from the same period. The line-up features drummer Bill Lynn, who also played with Elvis Presley. "Let Them Be Known" presents the band's most significant beat'n'garage recordings, including four singles sides from the mid-'60s and six previously unreleased recordings from the same period.
