This collection covers the first two incredible years of Rembrandt Records, a Chicago based Garage and Psychedelic label of the sixties. After the first release by the Nite–Owls failed to chart, Rembrandt Records’ owner Reggie Weiss moved in a different direction. His next release, "Open Up Your Mind" by the Nuchez, merged pop with psychedelic music. The song was based on an LSD trip and response to the single was positive. Soon other psych and psych–pop singles were issued by The Circus, The Nickel Bag, and Monday’s Children. Cash Box magazine began plugging Rembrandt Records during the fall of 1966. By 1967, Weiss was devoting all of his time to promoting a high–school band called The Lemon Drops. He wrote another LSD inspired song titled "I Live In The Springtime" for the band. Unfortunately, the single was unable to chart, even regionally. Over the ensuing decades though, the reputation of The Lemon Drops, The Nuchez, The Nite–Owls and other Rembrandt artists has grown immeasurably. This compilation contains the most important singles sides issued on Rembrandt Records between 1966–1967, plus a number of essential previously unreleased versions that are appearing for the first time ever on vinyl. The fourteen recordings on this album make it apparent that Rembrandt Records was way ahead of its time when these treasures from the psychedelic 60’s were recorded.

First 500 copies with 7" Single incl. two unreleased 1967 first time on vinyl recordings by the Nite–Owls.
