The Missing Links is the debut studio album by Australian rock band The Missing Links, originally released in December 1965 via Philips Records.

The Missing Links were an Australian garage rock, R&B, and protopunk group from Sydney. The band was active for a short period of time; from 1964 to 1966. The group was known for wearing their hair long and smashing their equipment on-stage.

Throughout the course of 1965, the band would go through a complete and total line-up change resulting in two completely different versions of the band. The second and better-known version consisted of Andy Anderson (vocals), Chris Gray (keyboards, harmonica), Doug Ford (vocals, guitar), Baden Hutchens (drums), John Jones (guitars, vocals) and Ian Thomas (bass).

This second version of the band released their debut album, The Missing Links in December 1965. A single “You’re Drivin’ Me Insane” was released in August 1965, followed by “Wild About You” in September 1965.

According to Allmusic's, Richie Unterberger, "This aggregation cut the rawest Australian garage/punk of the era, and indeed some of the best from anywhere, sounding at their best like a fusion of the Troggs and the early Who, letting loose at times with wild feedback that was quite ahead of its time."

In 1966 Hutchins and Thomas left the band, and the remaining members released a 4 track EP The Links Unchained, released in April 1966. By August 1966 the band had disbanded.

This reissue via Sundazed Music in the US contains a remastered mono mix of the original album pressed on 180 gram green coloured vinyl, plus a bonus 7” single containing The Links Unchained EP.

The original Australian mono vinyl pressing of the album has changed hands for more than AUD 2,000 online.
