Description by

Count Five was a psychedelic garage rock quintet of teenagers from San Jose. They're remembered equally for their music as they are for being the inspiration for Rock critic Lester Bang's best-selling book "Psychotic Reaction and Carburetor Dung". This CD spotlights their hit single, "Psychotic Reaction", which was a #5 Pop single in 1966 as well as their entire output for Double Shot Records.

Product Description:

Personnel: John "Sean" Byrne (vocals, guitar); Kenn Ellner (vocals, harmonica, tambourine); John Michalski (guitar); Craig "Butch" Atkinson (drums).
Liner Note Author: Jud Cost.
Photographer: Bernard Yeszin.
PSYCHOTIC REACTION: THE VERY BEST OF COUNT FIVE contains all 11 songs from the San Jose, California, garage rockers' sole album, plus six tracks from rare post-LP singles. (Sorry, Lester Bangs fans: all the later Count Five albums in his famous essay "Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung" are fictional.) It is not entirely comprehensive--Big Beat's 23-track PSYCHOTIC REVELATION has the lot--but it's as much Count Five as all but the most obsessive garage rock historian will ever need, attractively packaged and with more than adequate sound.
