    The third volume in Sundazed's Garage Beat '66 follows the same format as the preceding installments, the 20 tracks hailing from all over North America, most of them quite rare, all of them sourced from the original masters. Mid-'60s garage rock is the main course here, but it does allow for some different shades than the stereotypical snarling fuzz-laden pounders, including some psychedelic and pop-influenced productions. The Music Machine is the only group here that had a big hit (though they're represented by a non-charting 1968 single, "Mother Nature/Father Earth"), and while some of the other songs and artists will be fairly familiar to '60s collectors who specialize in this area, most listeners who've only just digested the Nuggets box set will find most of it virgin territory. It occupies a somewhat peculiar niche, though, in that collectors who dig this stuff might be apt to already have the better cuts here -- Southwest F.O.B.'s pop-psychedelic "Smell of Incense," the first-rate harmonized pop/rock of the E-Types' "She Moves Me," the Preachers' fierce version of "Who Do You Love," the Brogues' Pretty Things-inspired "Don't Shoot Me Down" (with a couple of future members of Quicksilver Messenger Service), and the Mourning Reign's moody "Satisfaction Guaranteed." The other songs are mostly below the standard of the aforementioned items, but a few goodies do lurk here, particularly the mix of stomping rhythms and tag-team harmonies in the Answer's "I'll Be In" and the Mile Ends' "Bottle Up and Go," a galvanizing slice of blues-pop-garage that's one of the best such efforts not to show up on too many compilations. ~ Richie Unterberger
