With the upcoming much-anticipated (for me at least!) Seeds documentary looming, the excitement was just too much for us down in the 'ol Nitro-Retro bat-cave-lounge. So here is a little something designed to whip-up all you Sky Saxon & The Seeds fans into a mad fury!

The Seeds Tribute Mix
Introduced by Casey Kasem himself, we open up with the obscure Seeds-2nd Generation, "Shuckin' & Jivin'. This 1972 sonic powerhouse sounds like lads just got their minds blown at an MC5 show and not to be outdone, thought they'd give it a shot too! But you gotta dig Sky Saxon's crazy T-Rex-like acid-reverb vocals!
Next is the obscure "Nightime Girl". A savage pronto-punk cut only heard off their so-called "live" album– thus becoming an instant 'nugget' being that it (and a few others) was never released on a single or album.
Next up is the great Mr. Farmer. This is the rare single version with no fade-out ending.
The psychedelic lads even promoted this one on TV. See the video here.
Finally we end with the often over-looked, "Girl I Want You".
A solid album cut off their first album, this primitive little ditty is also known for it's complete freak-out rave up ending.
So, keep an eye out for the release of the documentary - you know we will keep you posted here!
