Sit back, relax and enjoy this memorable collection of songs recorded by The Atlantics between 1966 and 2010. Ten of the songs have had previous worldwide release and are now extremely rare and near impossible to find elsewhere. These include 3 vocal tracks recorded by The Atlantics in the mid 60s during what is now considered by many as their “Garage Days“. Also included are studio versions of 3 songs originally appearing on the “Live at Freshwater” DVD recorded in March 2006 and the added bonus of a brand new track, “Tequila Slammer“.
