Tracks like the Rapscallions' "Land of Soul," the Coachmen's "Possibility," Changin' Tymes' "Blue Music Box," and songs by the Jades, the Rapids, the Escapades, and the LeSabres trace the history of of the Tennessee city's underground music scene, offering enough twists and surprises along the way to make the collection worthwhile for die-hard fans of frat and garage rock from the '60s and '70s.
