Phenomenal '60s garage from Minnesota's Gestures! Along with a few other Twin Cities chart toppers, The Gestures' "Run, Run, Run" became a national hit and even earned a spot on Kaye's legendary Nuggets compilation in 1972. Full of shimmering guitars, opulent harmonies, and good ol' rock 'n' roll, the band was limited to a handful of singles before going their separate ways. Here you'll find a full LP's worth of Gestures on vinyl, all killer no filler! In California, the Gestures were especially well-received, maybe because "Run, Run, Run" had the lightness, the hook, and infectious drive of the California surf and car band hits. Record World's hot picks column called it a surf-like sound that should endear them to teens. The slice is a hard-driving ditty. Cash Box said the Gestures bow was a hard-rock- ing, Liverpool-sounding affair... powerhouse instrumental support on this haunting entry. There's a complete change of pace in the soft-sounding uptempo undercut. "'Run, Run, Run' hit #1 in the Twin Cities, #3 in Los Angeles, #1 in New York and #3-5 in Oklahoma City. It reached the top of the local C&N Sales jukebox charts, cracked Billboard Magazine's top 40, and as I mentioned before, was even played on Bandstand. It was right up there with records by the Hondells, Gene Pitney, Jay & the Americans, and all the early British bands - including the Beatles." - Dale Menton (of The Gestures) 1. Hi-Heel Sneakers 2. I'm Not Mad 3. Don't Mess Around 4. Run, Run, Run 5. Things We Said Today 6. Can I Get A Witness 7. Long Tall Texan 8. Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying 9. It Seems To Me 10. She Cried 11. When Does Linda Cry 12. Savage World (instrumental) 13. Candlelight 14. Things We Said Today (alternate bkg track) 15. I'm Not Mad (alternate version) 16. Stand By Me
