Streetlight Records

Hugh "Jeep" Holland was in many ways the catalyst for the Detroit Rock revolution of the late '60s. This enigmatic individual graduated from from running hip record store Discount Records in Ann Arbor to his operating his own label and management stable. A-SQUARE (OF COURSE), named for Jeep's booking agency, draws principally on the vaults of his A-Square label, so beloved of 60s garage collectors, but also includes rare recordings by some f the groups that Jeep managed and/or booked. Foremost amongst the latter are the MC5, whose super-rare 1968 single "Looking at You" as issued by the band on A-Square without Jeep's knowledge. It is featured here from the original master tapes, as are the incendiary early recordings by the Scot Richard Case, later known by the acronym SRC. The Thyme was another popular group that Jeep nurtured, and in addition to their singles, several unissued tracks by the outfit are included.
