More Info:

Can you believe there hasn't been a legitimate Shangri-Las collection issued on vinyl since, well, forever?! At least not since the advent of the CD era. But we're making up for lost time with this one--when it comes to Shangri-Las compilations, this one's (sorry) the leader of the pack! Twenty-five tracks newly remastered by Eliot Kissileff from tape sources, presented in a 2-LP set pressed in (vroom! vroom!) clear with black "tailpipe exhaust" vinyl, and housed in a gatefold jacket with a 4-page insert. Liner notes by Shangri-Las expert John Grecco featuring his personal reminiscences of such legends as producer "Shadow" Morton, engineer Brooks Arthur, and band manager Larry Martire and rare photos complete the best-looking Shangs package ever released. "Remember (Walkin' in the Sand)" (the "Oh No" song of TikTok fame), "Leader of the Pack," "Give Him a Great Big Kiss," "I Can Never Go Home Anymore"...all your faves, sounding better than they ever have before!
