The Early Years 1964–1965 is a compilation album by the German-based American garage rock the Monks, and was released on Light in the Attic Records on April 14, 2009. The album chronicles the group's recordings as the Five Torquays, which was a traditional beat band, up to their demo sessions as the Monks in late 1965. It exemplifies a period in the Monks' musical career in which their rebellious avant-garde style was in its primitive stages.

The Early Years (1964-1965). On paper, it's hard to imagine a couplet that looks less like an opener for one of the best albums of the 1960s. When you hear it barked out by Monks lead vocalist Gary Burger over an otherworldly groove, though, it's an unlikely call to arms, and an immediate auditory stamp for one of the most strikingly original bands of the mid-60s. The band's sole studio album, released only in Germany in March 1966, has since become something of a legend, hailed as a precursor to punk and krautrock, and exerting influence far beyond its modest initial sales.

The Early Years 1964-1965 is an aural document of the Monks as they were trying to sort out the proportions of their singular approach. The bulk of The Early Years is devoted to a ten-song demo cut in 1965 featuring most of the tunes that would latter appear on Black Monk Time, along with a few others that would be left by the wayside. Given the long shadow cast by the Monks' small body of work, The Early Years 1964-1965 is a welcome footnote to the singular accomplishment that was their album, but this music (which was previously released on the album Five Upstart Americans) preserves a stop along the way before they reached greatness.
