Subtitled "The Return of the Frozen Few," this final entry in this amazingly little vinyl collection shines the spotlight firmly on '60s teen bands from Minnesota, the home of the Trashmen and a place where the bird was always the word. While bands like the Unbelievable Uglies ("Get Straight"), the Deacons ("Empty Heart"), and the Yetti-Men (three tracks total, including the wild and noisy "Break Time") kicked up a bit of local noise, the majority of artists anthologized here definitely fall into the weekend warrior subspecies of bands that didn't roll their amps out of the driveway too often. Heading the latter list are crude efforts by Jeannie, Jim, Tom & Bill ("Silly Whim"), the Leaves Of Grass ("Crabs"), and the Peers ("Once Upon A Time"), proof positive that the local record scene had room for everybody. As with the other entries in the series, it's less about famous groups or hit records than it is the sound, and the style (or lack of it in some cases) of '60s garage bands is captured perfectly, making this volume as potent as the others. Of special note for fans of the arcane is King Krusher and the Turkeynecks' "King Krusher," the Twin Cities' answer record to the Novas' "The Crusher," one of the wildest ever committed to wax, a definite must hear.
