"Pebbles, Volume 2" is a compilation album in the Pebbles series that has been issued in both LP and CD formats. Another "Pebbles, Volume 2" was issued on CD a few years earlier by ESD Records and has almost completely different tracks.

Release Data

This was the first new Pebbles album that was released on BFD Records, in 1979. AIP Records kept the LP in print for many years.

AIP Records issued this volume in CD format in 1992. Although having a different cover, the two formats are largely the same album and even have similar catalogue numbers.

Two box sets of the first five volumes of the Pebbles series have also been released, the "Pebbles Box" on LP (in 1987) and the "Trash Box" on CD (in 2004).

Omitted Tracks on the CD

When AIP Records issued the early volumes of CDs, they omitted some tracks from the corresponding LP for the stated reason that they were already widely available on other anthologies. As on Volume 1, the song by the Squires, "Go Ahead" is omitted from the CD, as is the final song on the LP, a Bo Diddley cover song by the Litter, who had the lead track on Volume 1. (However, the song was included on one of the ESD Records Pebbles CD's, "Pebbles, Volume 3"). All of the other tracks on the LP are included on the CD, although the two songs by the Dovers are swapped, and the Bobby Fuller song has been slightly re-attributed.

Notes on the Tracks

This album includes a song by The Moving Sidewalks; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top was a member of this band.

The first track, by the Satans has the same theme and even some of the same lyrics – e.g., "Can you guess my name?" – as the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" that was released several years later.

Three of the core members of The Choir would later form the Raspberries, with Eric Carmen as the lead vocalist; a second song by this band is included as a bonus track on the CD.
Bobby Fuller would later have a national hit as the Bobby Fuller Four, with "I Fought the Law (but the Law Won)".

"Feathered Fish" was written by Arthur Lee, and the band The Sons of Adam included Michael Stuart, who went on to join Lee in Love. An earlier line-up also included Randy Holden, later of Blue Cheer.

As on "Pebbles, Volume 1", "Pebbles, Volume 2" includes a curiosity featuring a well-known band: in this case, a genuine radio commercial with the Electric Prunes supplying a demonstration.

Side 1 of the LP closes with the beloved, minimalist "Green Fuz".
