Notes on the tracks
Even this deep into the Pebbles series, gems keep surfacing, including covers of an old Frankie Lymon song and "Hey Joe". "That Creature" has almost the same level of tastelessness as the infamous "Spazz" (on Pebbles, Volume 1); the lyrics frantically rage on about some poor guy's ugly girlfriend, with the vocalist being unsure as to whether she comes from the zoo or from outer space (with UFO sounds punctuating the latter impression). There are two nice psychedelic rock songs included; the opening track has some inventive and jarring musicianship, while "My Soap Won't Float" is a weird number in the vein of "Horror Asparagus Stories" (from Pebbles, Volume 3).
