The Standells' amazing string of punkish, tough-guy anthems, such as "Dirty Water" and "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," define the legacy of mid-'60s garage rock like nothing else. Their key albums for the Tower label (Dirty Water, Why Pick On Me, and Try It) perfectly bottled a rebellious wave of sound sweeping across Mid-1960's teen clubs, radio playlists and record racks.

Starting with the genre-defining, proto-punk smash Dirty Water, these three Tower albums are a veritable feast of three chord, fuzz-drenched, Vox Organ-driven "squares"-repellant.

The Standells' Dirty Water album, their first for Tower Records, was primarily recorded away from their Hollywood home base. Producer Ed Cobb picked a Seattle studio and engineer Kearney Barton (the Sonics), unwittingly unleashing the savage Pacific Northwest Sound on the rest of the country. As Standells founding member Larry Tamblyn tells it, "It really was the Standells raw." The results include crushing classics like "Little Sally Tease," "Medication," and "Why Did You Hurt Me."
