5.0 out of 5 stars Obscure gems compiled- surprised it has not been reviewed yet!, 1 Mar 2014
This review is from: Hello Everyone - Popsike Sparks From Denmark Street 1968-70 (Audio CD)
I'm relatively new to collecting music in this genre, but one thing that is clear is that there are many, many compilations to choose from. Research and admittedly limited listening so far, would tell me that this is a relatively good choice. A generously filled, well annotated single disc. This is the same re- issue label that recently released the Love, Devotion, Poetry 3 disc set which has great reviews and no overlap of tracks with this release.

The music, to my ears, comprises the best in melodic aspects of late 60's UK popsike, with many of the tracks commanding high prices in the RRPG in their original format on the Spark label. What is also good is that many original A sides come with their companion flip side - albeit randomly sequenced on the disc. The accompanying booklet is very well compiled with informative commentaries and pictures. This, and the relative high quality of the transfers, set this disc aside from some of the initially attractive multi-disc sets available. In short, not every track is a winner, but there is enough here to attract repeated listenings.
