Another vinyl compilation of Exiles tracks, this time from a German company, Lance/DC Records. In stunning red vinyl this 2000 release has the usual tracks included plus a couple of interesting additions.

The opening track (which I've not come across before) is a cover of the Buddy Holly classic Rave On and was apparently done as an audition for Glenn Records in 1964.

Also included are the rare tracks Can't We Get Along / That's All I Want From You taken from the 1965 single on Golden Crown (which pretty much makes it essential).

There are some brief sleeve notes on the back cover with two well known photographs - one of the original band from the Please Be Mine photo session and a picture of Merrell with slick-backed hair and his guitar.

If you want to track down a copy of this album (or a copy of the CD version) Lance/DC Records have a website at
