Here we have six tunes recorded for Fontana, and six recorded earlier in their career in a local Riverside studio. All twelve are groundbreaking in their content, you would think they had already heard Hendrix or the Doors and were indeed copying them!
The quality of recordings is crackly on the earlier tracks but still very listenable and doesnt spoil the enjoyment factor at all. Any fan of sixties psychedelia should own this album, I love it !!!
Now 6 songs does not make an album (would have been a very fine EP though) so Cherry Red have filled out the CD with demos made before they came to the UK. These are pretty standard garage/blues/sub-Yardbirds stuff, better than many but indifferently recorded, and without the first 6 tracks they'd mean nothing to anyone - I can absolutely guarantee that no one ever bought this album for those tracks rather than the first 6.
Who knows what might have happened if they'd not been subjected to such trials and tribulations.Read more ›
The remaining tracks are from two years earlier and, though pretty good RnB/60s pop, despite a somewhat dodgy sound quality, aren't in the same league. So if you're looking for a full, top quality CD of psych maybe you will be a mite disappointed. But if you're happy to take those six brilliant tracks and view the rest as a bonus (and psych fans should be) then this is essential.
