The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana are best known for their highly sought after 1966 picture cover 45 on Phalanx Records titled 'I Saw What You Did' b/w 'Beeker Street'. The single got picked up by RCA Records for nationwide release and is today rated as one of the best and most exciting double sided major label garage 45s of the 1960s. A planned second single and LP release for RCA never happened. 'Complete Recordings, 1964-71' is a 15-track CD presenting the band's 1969 top notch psych album 'Lost Dove Sessions', featuring the nine minute long 'Jessica Ryder', the spooky 'Mushroom', the brooding organ driven 'The End', psychers such as 'Ball Of Fire', heavy rockers such as 'Free' and the trippy never ending 11-minute slashing guitar freakout of 'Social Slavery'. None less than eight bonus cuts are added to the CD including the group's sole double sided 1966 fuzzkiller 45rpm, two rare 1965 single releases by pre-Olivers garage band 'The Serfmen' responsible for one of the most ever snarling '60s punk version of Ronnie Love's 'Chills & Fever' plus three more incredible early Aldrich/Richie penned killer garage originals. The CD closes with a rare 45 recorded by former Olivers members under the name Triad. This amazing 60-minute trip through the sixties and captures the incredible talent and versatility of the Olivers and proves that the band does not only deserve the plaudit "Indiana Sixties Rock Heroes", but also had the potential for the national breakthrough that never happened. A 16-page booklet documents the band's long career as told by its original members and a cache of unseen photos completes the band's 1964-'71 history.
