Similar in style to The Shadows, The Ventures and The Tornados, The Spotnicks exploded on to the music scene in 1962 with their hit single Orange Blossom Special, a Top Thirty hit in the summer. Whilst the Tornados were largely faceless because the group were entirely reliant on Joe Meek, The Spotnicks were unidentifiable because the group took to appearing on stage wearing space suits! Heralding from Sweden (and thus can lay claim to becoming the first major Swedish music export, a good decade ahead of Abba), the group quickly arrived in England looking to capitalise on their success. An album was recorded, Out-A Space - The Spotnicks In London, which would feature the hits Orange Blossom Special and Rocket Man and become a minor chart hit in its own right. Whilst The Spotnicks would make two further returns to the British singles chart in 1963, their time in the sun had seemingly gone. That has not stopped them racking up worldwide sales approaching 20 million units, nor continuing to tour even to this day (although a tour later this year is slated as their final one).

Overall a very worthwhile purchase - hope Cherry Red release more of their albums with non-album singles tracks like this.
so this album with it,s extra tracks is now one of my favourite cd,s
this album alongside THE VENTURES COLOURFUL VENTURES and THE SHADOWS first album ranks as one of the best
guitar group albums ever
Great album. Buy it.
When is someone going to point out that 'What did I say' is actually 'What d' I say'?
Still a great album, which I'm still playing after 50 years...
The rest of the tracks here are either Mono or true Stereo. It is still enjoyable, so wack up the stereo speakers and see how good these guys were.
Unlike some others the Spotnicks don't sound too bad in Stereo, Although I prefer mono myself, as that is how my old LP was.
At less than a tenner it's worth having. These are digital quality, and are not vinyl rips.
To me their sound was unique, nothing like the Shadows, Ventures, Gladiators etc..
The Spotnicks were in 1962 also unique in having their guitars connected to their amps via wireless transmitters and receivers, and as the LP sleeve notes say, they used all their own equipment on the recording session, leaving Oriole records to just supply the Stereo recording facilities.
Some say the vocal tracks are throw aways, I disagree, "Ol' Man River" is a gem, unique in it's own right. "I'm Going Home (To See My Baby) is a great European sounding alternative to the Gene Vincent & Sounds Incorporated version from a year earlier to in my opinion. This is one CD where you will find you play it loud.
Very good and recommended.
