I fell in love with the African explorers after I saw the cult-favorite movie, "Mountains of the Moon" about the African travails of Richard Burton and John Hanning Speke,in the late 1850's, and have spent the last two decades reading whatever I could get on the subject. Jeal, whose biography of Henry Stanley makes it clear he was one of the toughest, greatest African explorers, has now brought out this great summary of the latter half of the 19th century, when British (and some French and Germans) explorers undertook hardships that boggle the mind, and showed courage and endurance off the scale, to determine the millennia-old question of the source of the Nile.

The Sonics that Wailers bassist Buck Ormsby took into a small studio and unleashed on the world show a live band at the peak of its power, ready to mow down the competition without even blinking twice. Their debut long-player (originally issued on the Etiquette imprint) is reprised here with new liner notes by Norton prexy Miriam Linna in the original mono. The flame-throwing hits of "The Witch," "Psycho," "Boss Hoss," and "Strychnine" are aboard, along with versions of "Do You Love Me," "Dirty Robber," "Have Love Will Travel," and "Walkin' the Dog" that are no less potent. This long-play vinyl reissue also boasts the addition of four bonus tracks: "Keep a Knockin'" (the original B-side of "The Witch") and three selections from an Etiquette Christmas album, "Don't Believe in Christmas," "The Village Idiot," and "Santa Claus." Another important chunk of Seattle rock & roll history.
