All of 49th Parallel's singles and b-sides + rare alternates, on vinyl for the first time since their initial pressings back in 1966-68!
The bandï¿½s first single, ï¿½All Your Loveï¿½, was recorded in 1966 as the Shades of Blond; it was previously only available on a staggeringly rare EP featuring Calgary bands.
Their debut as 49th Parallel came in mid-1967 with ï¿½Laborerï¿½/ï¿½You Do Thingsï¿½ in mid 1967, and
ï¿½She Saysï¿½ b/w ï¿½Citizen Freak in early 1968: hard-edged garage punk, tough, and thick with fuzz guitar and a defiant sneer.
The next single, ï¿½Blue Bonnie Blueï¿½ b/w ï¿½Missouriï¿½ appeared in late spring of 1968.
In the spring of 1969, the beautiful ï¿½Twilight Womanï¿½ b/w ï¿½Close the Barn Doorï¿½ zoomed up the charts across Canada and parts of the USA.
Both ï¿½Twilight Womanï¿½ and the hit follow-up, ï¿½Now That I'm A Manï¿½ b/w (Come On Little Child &) Talk To Me are melodic pop/psych of the purest kind. Fifteen tracks all told on this, the ultimate 49th Parallel vinyl collection.
