Details about the record:

First band retrospective released on vinyl. Includes the uncensored version of “Kick Out the Jams” and two pre-major label singles from 1966 licensed from the band: “I Can Only Give You Everything,” and “Looking At You.”

Info about the band: 

The MC5, born out of the ashes of industrial Detroit, recorded only 3 full length albums and lasted less than a decade but left an indelible stain on the world of Rock & Roll both musically and culturally. Like their Detroit brothers The Stooges, they helped lay the initial ground work for the punk movement with a simple, hard driving, high energy, loud and gritty style of Rock that includes elements of garage rock, hard rock, blues and psychedelic rock.

This one time only Run Out Groove release is the first legitimate vinyl compilation of the band’s Elektra and Atlantic recordings and belongs on every Rock collector’s shelf, if not for the sonic music assault then for the audacious packaging alone. Each record comes in a single sleeve, silver foil, old-school tip-on Stoughton paper wrapped jacket.

Each LP was pressed on 180g, multi-color vinyl, and individually numbered and strictly limited, based on pre orders. Also included a 12x12 insert with photos and liner notes.

This record provides a killer ensemble of tracks from their halcyon days, including the original uncensored version of “Kick Out the Jams.”
