My friends, Still in Rock is proud to introduce its sixth official mixtape. Its them: the year of 1965. Its instructions: to feature tracks from 1965 only.
As you know, the true garage rock explosion is dated from 1966. My desire to explore some less obvious music drove me right in 1965. 50 years later, we realize that the best tracks from this year remain among the greatest. They keep generating the same feeling of invincibility experienced by the youth of the sixties. Sure, this mixtape deliberately excludes some hits, I think of "Satisfaction" for instance, but the idea was to create 40 minutes that could encapsulate what rock'n'roll was few months before its epiphany. With the help of some legendary bands (how not to feature the Beatles and The Who) and few others that history has decided to boycott, I hope that these few minutes will dazzle you as they should.
