"Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 1" (subtitled LA '65 / Teenage Rebellion) is a compilation album of American garage rock and psychedelic rock recordings from the mid to late 1960s. It was the first in a series that is nearly as long as the earlier Pebbles series of similar music (for which the Highs in the Mid-Sixties series is a companion series), although the "Highs" albums concentrate strictly on particular regions of the US – in this case, recordings that were released in Los Angeles, California. (Despite the subtitle, however, not all of these records were originally released in 1965).

"Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 2", "Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 3", and "Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 20" also showcase music from Los Angeles; while two of the later CDs in the Pebbles series, "Pebbles, Volume 8" and "Pebbles, Volume 9" feature bands from throughout Southern California.

Release Data

This album was released in 1983 as an LP by AIP Records (as #AIP-10003).

Notes on the Tracks

The Standells were one of the best of the mid-sixties L.A. bands; this is a rare early track that was previously unreleased at this time. The flip side of "Linda" by the Starfires is one of the most valuable and sought after garage rock songs, "I Never Loved Her", which was featured on the "Pebbles, Volume 8" LP and CD. The Epics have managed yet another take on the eternal "Louie Louie". Gypsy Trips are actually from Oklahoma but settled in L.A.; this song was later covered by the Electric Prunes. The Lyrics' "So What!" was a featured song on "Pebbles, Volume 2".
