From the Shindig Mailing List comes news of a Pebbles Tribute LP from Born Bad Records. If you’re not familiar with the Pebbles series of recordings, Greg Shaw from Bomp! had put together an incredible run of 28 LPs containing obscure ’60s recordings from all over the world, inspired in part from Lenny Kayes famed "Nuggets" series of little known but extremely raucous garage rock. Well "The Pebbles vol. 1-10 Tribute Album" comprises 17 bands and 16 exclusive tracks inspired by the first 10 volumes of this seminal slice of rock and roll history. The release will be limited to 400 vinyl copies only so contact the label if you want to get a copy toute de suite! The lineup is as follows (with comments from list poster Laurent Bigot):
