Troyes - Love Comes, Love Dies: The Troyes Complete Recordings 1966-1968 2XLP
Incredible Michigan band... all over the place but all great!
Essential Michigan garage/psych! Propelled by their local chart-topper ‘Rainbow Chaser,’ Battle Creek quintet The Troyes entered the orbit of bandleader Ray Anthony (“Dragnet”, “Peter Gunn”), laying down a multitude of fuzztone laced tracks throughout 1966-1967 that, save for one 7” release on his Space Records label, remained unreleased on vinyl—until now.
The Troyes exploded onto the music scene with ‘Rainbow Chaser’. Sensing a new phenomenon, famed bandleader Ray Anthony signed the group to his new rock label Space Records. His faith in the band was so big that nearly two albums worth of material were recorded at United Sound (Detroit). Unfortunately, only two singles were issued. Far-out psychedelia, unhinged fuzz and farfisa garage, moody haunting sounds, face melters (check out ‘Corn Flake’)—it’s all here. Rare photos, radio surveys, newspaper articles, Troyes memorabilia, and the story of a band that could have been big.
