The well of privately released hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal 45s is deep and the Brown Acid compilation series is nowhere near tapped out. Most of these records were barely released and never properly distributed so they ain't easy to find, but they're out there if you're willing to dig...and Lance Barresi (co-owner of L.A.-cum-Chicago shop Permanent Records) and Daniel Hall (of RidingEasy Records) aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. Hard calluses have formed from handling the shovel and they've sifted through a lot of dirt, but dug up another 10 tremendous records to share with all the heavy heads out there. This fourth volume brings together eight insanely rare and skull-crushingly heavy 45s as well as two previously unreleased bangers.
You may remember the Zekes' jaw dropper "Box" from the First Trip. That song rips! And so does this previously unheard recording they've legally obtained from the Beverly Hills Records vaults. "Comin Back" is the longest tune yet in this series and it's a full-on rager! There have been numerous groups named Bad Axe over the years, but the one you hear here is the baddest and "Coachman" is their crowning achievement. The rest of the records included on this volume vary in rarity, but at least two of them were virtually unknown until Lance and Dan discovered them. Anyhow, plug in, turn up, and freak out...this is what Rock 'n' Roll is all about!
