The Group's Only Studio Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl LP!
Cut From The Original Analog Masters at Capitol Studios!
Featuring The Classic Garage-Rock Hit Single!


In the mid-'60s in San Jose, a group of teens got together under then name The Squires. They played around town and became a local favorite. But, when member Sean Byrne penned a song called "Psychotic Reaction", the band was thrust onto the national stage. Having changed their name to The Count Five, the group's 1966 album Psychotic Reaction landed on the Billboard 200 chart and the song itself made it all the way to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The group disbanded in 1967, just one year after their single hit the airwaves.

The title track, "Psychotic Reaction", from the 1966 debut album from Count Five peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was one of the earliest successful acid/psychedelic rock songs. The song was included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's list of the '500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll' in 2014.

"If you know this San Jose band, you probably know the essay Lester Bangs wrote positively drooling over this album, which got him so excited he made up a bunch more Count Five LPs that didn't exist. The Count Five – who wore Bela Lugosi-style Dracula capes – had a touch of the Zombies about them, and some similar melodic and rhythmic panache, albeit with less flexible grooves. This record is catchy as hell, with a couple Who covers, but more highlights in terms of originals. The hit title track 'Psychotic Reaction' borrows the rave-up gambit from the Yardbirds' 'I'm a Man' – a pretty bold pilfer – but opener 'Double-Decker Bus' is the real rabble-rouser. Again, the American guitar-wielding teens of 1966 loved British stuff. And the reconceptualization of everyday British imagery could be pretty heady in its new seedy American digs. Don that cape!" - Rolling Stone – 10 Wild LPs From Garage Rock's Greatest Year
