When I think of the Tell-Tale Hearts, I like to think of them first of all as friends, and secondly as a band that surfaced in the early 1980s who were not only a force to be reckoned with, but also stood out miles above and beyond the plethora of pseudo-retro-garage bands that followed the initial emergence of what we now look back on in retrospect as he Happening 60s Garage Scene' that took place from the late 70s through the late 80s.

The tracks herein were recorded directly to a 1/4" mono tape recorder, live-in-the-studio by practice studio owner/sound engineer Steve Epeniter and were all done in one or two takes (with no overdubs).

Recorded March 7, 1984 at Studio 517 (located in downtown San Diego), they have the same vibe as the 'needle-in-the-red' earthy Chess recordings of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and the early Stones, and, in my book, define the concept of what is now coined as arage-Rock'.

I know you will agree. Greg 'Stackhouse' Prevost
