Hailing from Florida, The Tropics were one of the finest 60s garage bands. Their memorable concerts are still remembered today by the lucky ones who saw them at the time. Between 1965 and 1969, they recorded some explosive and now legendary 45s which are prime examples of garage-rock, teen-beat, folk-rock and proto-psych sounds. Here you’ll find most of those 45 sides along with some rare, previously unreleased on vinyl tracks. Including the classic “As time’s gone” (covered by The Fuzztones) and many more.

 

Remastered sound in mono, insert with detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things) and rare photos.

 

“In 1965 The Tropics were the biggest band in Florida…simple as that. I watched them in awe” (Tom Petty)
