Abba / Better Man Than I

ALT45001 (7″ single / Limited Edition 7″ single / Digital)

“Let me hear you say YEAH!!!” First official reissue of this 60s garage anthem, a true classic of its genre.

It didn’t appear in any national sales charts, but “Abba” by the Paragons is a smash hit record by any other measure. Ebullient, melodic, infectious, and eminently danceable, it’s impossible not to love. For DJs at sixties events worldwide, it’s a surefire crowd pleaser. Bands continue to cover it onstage and on record, including the Satelliters, the Cynics, and most recently the Rosalyns. Record collectors fight tooth and nail to get their hands on the original 45. As an exemplar of pure joyous American teenage garage bliss, it’s pretty much unsurpassed.

Mike Stax (Ugly Things magazine)

We’re proud to bring you the first official reissue of this essential 60s garage classic, after several bootlegs hitting the market in recent times and its appearance in countless compilations in the last 20 years. Done in cooperation with surviving band members Pat Walters and Danny Huntley, the single receives the usual deluxe treatment at Altercat and comes housed in a brand new picture sleeve, with a 12-page booklet with the band’s story written by Mike Stax (Ugly Things magazine) and previously unseen pictures. Sound mastered by Tim Warren (Crypt Records / Back From The Grave).
