The Hollywood Persuaders released just five singles (including a promo-only release) between 1963 and 1965, but the original single mixes have never appeared in digital form (from the original master tapes) until now.  In addition to both sides of Paul Buff’s solo single “Slow Bird”/ “Blind Man’s Buff,” there are many unreleased tracks: two versions of “Evil Underneath,” a demo version of “Drums A-Go-Go,” “Go-Go Music,” “Organ Stomp,” “Cruisin’,” a demo version of “Agua Caliente (Hot Water),” “Rollin’,” and “Something Else,” which only exists on an acetate.  Another rarity is the Mexican album version of “Yes, I Want To Dance,” and you even get a countoff before Frank Zappa’s “Grunion Run”!
