All recordings by this East L.A. 60's classic garage band. Includes the live LP and all 6 singles from Rampart/Linda Records. Overview: It all happened at the Rainbow Gardens in Pomona, California, 1960, as the Mixtures, mighty kings of the West Coast's Eastside dance hall scene, rocked and ruled the house. As the movement for integration that began in Mississippi and Alabama was taking shape nationwide, it was not only the South that was segregated. In the Southern California of the Fifties, non-white races were more allied, though it was rare you'd find them mixed in a band. As the dawn broke on rock'n'roll, "The Mixtures," a six man party band-- was at different times comprised of African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Caucasians and a Native American, made history. Stepping onstage to the tune of a warm up, the band would move
through instrumental superjams like 'Turkey Time' and 'One Degree North', and crowd-pleasing pop hits like 'So Fine' and 'Peter Gunn' till the house and all its inhabitants dripped in a cold sweat. By the time they got to Ike and Tina's 'It's Gonna Work Out Fine', into which they'd injected their own brand of soul-styled horns and guitar at all the right stops, they'd have the roof tore off. The slow dances snuck up, like the sly rendering of the standard, 'St. James Infirmary' and the tear-soaked, 'That's All I Ask' (you can hear the ladies in the house squealing their approval). Back to the jams, 'Poochum' put a spotlight on keyboard man Mendoza and the classic Eastside sound while the borrowed tune 'Tiki' was the well-known theme to the island lounge craze that was sweeping the Southern California suburbs like a tropical hurricane, all
designed for a non-stop dance floor workout. The band created 'The Rainbow Stomp', as they loved to hear the foot stomping: Stomp, stomp, stomp. Recommended if you like: Los Lobos, Cannibal & The Headhunters, The Premiers, Don & Dewey, The Kingsmen, The Sonics, The Wailers, Oldies But Goodies.
