The Centaurs were one of the top rock bands to come out of Vancouver Canada in the mid 60's. With their long hair and bad boy image, they were way ahead of their time in both their sound and style. They left Vancouver seeking fame and fortune and ended up in Holland and Germany where they quickly rose to the top of their game, sharing the stage with some of the biggest groups of the day and gaining thousands of adoring fans.
The tracks represented here are high quality studio recordings from 1966 transferred from the original analog master tapes, plus a few live bonus tracks recorded in 1967 in Amsterdam, Holland, just to give the listener a feel of the period from the band's perspective.
Fans of 60's garage/punk music will greatly appreciate these never before released tracks remastered by award winning mastering engineer Stephen Marsh in Los Angeles. Read the full story of the band's further adventures inside the elaborate gatefold cover (LP) or in the deluxe 16 page booklet (CD) with never before seen color photos, memorabilia, and rare concert posters from the band member's personal collections.
