If you are a fan, you probably know that Greg Prevost played in different bands before forming the Chesterfield Kings. Only one of them, the Distorted Levels, released a 7" at the time, in 1978. But there were many more. You may have heard or read about mystery bands such as Mr Electro and The Void, The Cutdowns, Mr Electro and the Psychedelic Burnouts, etc. They all recorded profusely, but most master tapes eventually disappeared, in no less mysterious circumstances. Still, some recordings survived...and here you have a selection of this material: all demos, all previously unreleased, plus the Distorted Levels 7”, as well as five tracks (six on the CD format) recorded by early Chesterfield Kings line-ups from 1978-79. Gatefold sleeve, detailed track-by-track notes by Greg, including over 30 photos / press-clippings from his personal archive, and liner notes from Mike Stax (Ugly Things magazine), whose final verdict of this whole artifact could not be more exact: “Barbaric. Crude. Primitive. Beautiful".

Si eres fan de los Chesterfield Kings probablemente sabrás que, antes de formarlos, Greg Prevost estuvo en otras bandas. Solo uno de ellas, los Distorted Levels, logró editar un single en la época (1978). Pero hubo más, bastantes más. Quizás hayas oído o leído sobre misteriosos grupos como Mr. Electro and The Void, The Cutdowns, Mr. Electro and The Psychedelic Burnouts, etc. Todos ellos grabaron profusamente, aunque por desgracia la mayoría de masters desapareció en circunstancias también misteriosas. Pero una parte se conservó. Aquí tenemos una selección de demos inéditas -excepto el mencionado 7" de Distorted Levels- junto con cuatro canciones -también inéditas- de los primeros Chesterfield Kings grabadas a finales de los 70.  Portada doble, textos de Greg con más de 30 fotos/recortes de prensa de su archivo personal y liner-notes de Mike Stax (Ugly Things magazine).
