"The Seeds were formed in Los Angles in 1965. By the end of 1966, they had secured a contract with GNP Crescendo, releasing "Pushin' Too Hard" as their first single. The song climbed into the Top 40 early in 1967, and the group immediately released two sound-alike singles, "Mr. Farmer" and "Can't Seem to Make You Mine," in an attempt to replicate their success; the latter came the closest to being a hit, just missing the Top 40. While their singles were garage punk, the Seeds attempted to branch out into improvisational blues-rock and psychedelia on their first two albums,'The Seeds' (1966) and 'Web of sound' (1966). With their third album, 'Future'(1967), the band attempted a psychedelic concept album in the vein of Sgt. Pepper's. While the record reached the Top 100 and spawned the minor hit "A Thousand Shadows," it didn't become a hit. Two other albums --Raw and aliwe -The Seeds in concert at Merlin's Music Box' (1968) and 'A full spoon of seedy blues' (1969), which was credited to the Sky Saxon Blues Band -- were released at the end of the decade, but both were ignored. The Seeds broke up shortly afterward."
"This two-disc set has pretty much all the Seeds anyone could possibly need, and it charts the band's various experiments from sledgehammer proto-punk through silly flower-power psychedelia to something that could almost pass for artsy prog rock, and it includes the two early hits as well as mildly interesting fare like the almost country-sounding "Fallin' Off the Edge (Of My Mind)" and the overwrought but intriguing "Travel with Your Mind." For all but the most ardent Seeds fan, though, a shorter, more concise collection might be a better bet."
