    Created by Merrell Fankhauser in 1964 after he arrived in Lancaster and the Antelope Valley area, Merrell and The Exiles are probably more interesting historically than for purely musical reasons. Born in Louisville, Kentucky on the 23rd of December, 1943, Fankhauser had previously lived on the California Coast, in Pismo Beach. There he began playing surf music, even winning the Arroyo Grande Battle of the Bands in March 1962 and being part of the Sentinals and the Impacts (one instrumental LP Wipe-Out (Del-Fi 1234) 1963).
    In Lancaster Fankauser met Jeff Cotton, John French and Larry Willey and they became Merrell and The Exiles. Their first recordings took place in a small studio of Palmdale, California, at Glenn Recording Studios, which were owned and directed by Glenn MacArthur. All the songs were recorded live on 2 track tape. In April 1964, Please Be Mine was No. 9 in the local Palmdale station KUTY charts! In all, two or three singles were recorded for Glenn Records and pressed in very limited quantities.
    More Merrell and The Exiles sessions took place in Hollywood in 1966 at the Gary Paxton Studio and in 1967 at the Gold Star Studio with a changing line-up. Some of their songs (Too Many Heartbreaks, Suzy Cryin) were in fact released on the Fapardokly album, another Fankhauser creation. The other songs however, had to wait until the '80s before they were released in various forms.
    Bill Dodd also played with Fankhauser in Fapardokly and H.M.S. Bounty. John French and Jeff Cotton left to join Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, another group from the High Desert area, but in 1970 Cotton returned with Merrell to form MU (also with Larry Willey). Greg Hampton also later played with Denny King.
    The retrospective, Early Years album consists largely of surf and garage rock tracks. Aside from the few 45 tracks, the majority were previously unreleased. Don't Call On Me is notable for featuring the first guitar solo ever recorded by then fledgling guitarist Jeff Cotton. Yes I Love You, another cut on this album was originally intended for inclusion on the legendary Fapardokly album but wasn't used in the end. This album is primarily of archival interest, however. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini / Vernon Joynson)
