“…dares to merge the worlds of The Who with The Association. Chances are, you will have never heard of the bands featured on this disc. Chances are also that once you do, you’ll be begging to hear more.” Daily Vault

 “…a piece of pop history, an artefact of a time past and a great listen.” iMusic

“…an auteur with few peers.  Pierre Tubbs’ previously unacknowledged talent is finally getting its proper due.” Record Collector

“This compilation represents an untold chapter in the story of British pop music of the 1960s. The factor common to the Jeeps, The Silence, Our Plastic Dream and The Owl is Pierre Tubbs. Furthermore, the first three of these are actually the same band under different names…”

So wrote Kieron Tyler in the introductory notes to the original 1999 release of this gleefully frenetic compilation of garage recordings by Pierre Tubbs.

“Pierre’s Plastic Dream – The Garage Tapes” is a young man’s first foray into pop and psych taped between 1966 and 1968 in his folks’ garage.

Songwriter, record producer and even album sleeve designer (with over 1000 covers to his credit), Tubbs later went on pen hits such as “But It’s Alright”, “Come See Me” and smash hit “Right Back Where We Started From”, recorded by Maxine Nightingale and featured in the movie ‘Slap Shot’.

But roll back the years, this is where it all started.
