NOTES:
The Twilighters song Nothing Can Bring Me Down was covered by Pussy Galore on Live: In The Red and Maximum Penetration and Boss Hog covered this song during their 1991 tour.

The Twilighters original 7″ single is listed as number 233 on the rarest Garage 45s website:

“Here’s the crossover point, pinned precisely to mid-1968. The band uses fuzz guitar and splendid farfisa, both played with savage intensity as they were in ’66. The drummer pounds mercilessly at the kit, blissfully unaware of the soon-to-be obvious fact that it’s missing several rack toms and a gong. However, the guitarist HAS heard Jimi Hendrix and was very, very impressed. And the singer HAS heard Cream and Vanilla Fudge, and has changed his vocal inflections to a deeper, more mature soulful tener. This is what happened in 1968, when being a teen suddenly lost its rosy glow. Vietnam the cause? We think so, among other factors. Still a monster garage nugget, and one of the best and rarest on Mark VII out of Waco, itself one of the top Texas garage labels of the mid-sixties. Hear it on Texas Flashback Vol. 2 LP or CD. The flip is (as usual) the total opposite – a slow, dreary bluesy love ballad.”
