AllMusic Review by

Peter Wright's Quill Records recorded some of America's best garage rock. The term is a misnomer in Wright's case because he used good studios but still managed to produce that raw, edgy sound associated with the style. The 25 tracks represent a good overview of Quill's output by a host of Midwest bands that deserved far better including the Exterminators, the Rooks, Chances R, the High Schoolers, the Delights, and the Skunks. Lovers of the style will treasure these refreshing mid-'60s sounds.
