A-Square (Of Course) is an essential compilation of the Michigan garage revolution in the late '60s, all revolving around the catalyst for the revolution, Hugh "Jeep" Holland. In 1966, Holland advanced from operating hip record store Discount Records in Ann Arbor to running his own label, booking and management companies for many of these fledgling groups. Named after the booking arm, A-Square (Of Course) showcases the absolute best cuts on the highly-collectible label, including rare recordings from the likes of the MC5, the Rationals, and the Scot Richard Case. Previously unreleased material from the likes of the proto-Sabbath Half Life and the Stooges' competitors Stoney and the Jagged Edge help expand this collection beyond its original 2008 CD release. Updated liner notes by celebrated 60's rock historian Alec Palao beautifully tell the story of the unique time and place that these songs came from. A must-have for garage fans of any era.
