Reviving the Jukebox once again because... why the hell not? You guys all seem to love them and this one's taking a bit of a twist. After a few weeks break to absorb The Dirtbombs love letter to 60's Bubblegum, I've taken stock of some of my favorites from the genre. Bubblegum fits into the natural progression from garage and soul to glam and power pop, which, if you've spent any time hanging around RSTB for the past half a decade or so, you'd know that I have a few soft spots for those particular genres. The mix is below and you can head on over to the Soundcloud page to download it.

Its by no means definitive but in all my searching through compilations, no one hit on this combination of bands. I love the perfect pop behind The Archies and Lancelot Link (courtesy of the talents of Don Kirshner and Steve Hoffman respectably) and I'll be damned if Josie and the Pussycats didn't lay down one of the best J5 imitations ever. Tried to get a nice mix of obvious heavies and some fringe outliers that need attention, hence the inclusion of Shadows of Knight during their later, session players filled period. Also that single is on Buddah, the home of Bubblegum. Tell ya what, lay some of your favorites down in the comments. Its been a while since RSTB had a lively discussion.

The full tracklist is over at Soundcloud.

This is an amazing collection. Would you mind posting them in mp3 format? My computer is a bit slow and soundcloud tends to freeze it.

On the right side of the Soundcloud is a download button to grab the mix as an MP3. Or if you head to the RSTB-Mixtapes Soundcloud page you can download from there as well.

Sorry to be a pest, any way you can put it somewhere as separate songs instead of one long MP3?

I'm listening to the mix again now, and it's amazing how many treasures there are in the garage rock lexicon.
