Notes on the tracks

This album was assembled by Bob Irwin and Jeff Jarema from a variety of sources. Most compilations of music by garage rock bands collect the singles and possibly an unreleased track or two. However, in this case, only their classic "It's Cold Outside" is included on this album; even the highly regarded flip side of this first single, "I'm Goin' Home" is omitted. Although the "A" side of their fourth single, "When You Were with Me" is among the tracks, this is the original version of the song, before the record label added strings (which made Wally Bryson very angry at the time[1]). The second, third and fifth singles, along with all of the "B" sides are not represented at all on this album.
