Livin’ free (CD)
In 1967, a bunch of US and Argentinean kids recorded a magical album which has remained unknown for many years due to its extreme rarity, with less than a handful known copies to exist. Released in 1968 in Argentina by a label called Phonexa, the Schibbinz album could be regarded as the ultimate teen garage folk-rock album ever. An album of fragile beauty, full of teen charm, innocent vocals, jangly guitars, charming lo-fi sound and lost-in-time atmosphere. It has the look and sound that can only be found on some USA 60s private pressings like Rising Storm or Summer Sounds. But Schibbinz music is something else.
So now we’re proud to present this wonderful and mega-rare album to the world, in a production counting with the band’s involvement and assistance. Master tapes are lost, but the sound has been carefully remastered from an original near mint copy. Extensive, detailed liner notes and lots of cool pictures from the band’s archives are all included in the booklet.
Also, 3 unreleased bonus tracks are included here, not in the vinyl version.
