Hits Of

Edmonton's legendary combo THE NOMADS get a long overdue reissue...
we first approached the late Garry McDonnell about this product idea in 2005!

"Hits Of" was the groups' lone album release in 1968 and is a pricey collectors item
(in the $500 range) if you can even find it.

We located the multi-track masters for their album and present it here in stereo,
+ their Teem Twist release
+ 1962 Norman Petty Studios recordings featuring lead guitarist Bob Clarke,
+ the original mono Damon 45 versions,
+ 11 unissued bonus tracks from the early 1959-1961 period
resulting in the definitive and ultimate Nomads package.

36 tracks - full color 4-panel wallet with 12 page booklet

I enjoyed reliving many of the moments you so well describe" ~ Wallis Petruk, The Nomads
