German only compilation consisting of fourteen single and EP cuts recorded between 1961-63, originally issued by British EMI labels and most of them through the "HMV Pop" serie. Going from early Cliff Bennett & Rebel Rousers, Screaming Lord Sutch and Mike Berry over Johnny Kidd, Bruisers and Dean Shannon to Dave Clark Five, Hollies and Beatles. For me an amazing journey back to the time when the British sixties pop formula started to emerge from covering and imitating contemporary US artists and eventually taking shape as something unique. Also very rewarding to have those rarities on an early issue in one place, all original mono cuts with top audio. And there's so much good music. Both sides of Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages "Till The Following Night"/"Good Golly Miss Molly" '45, one of the earliest Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers recordings "That's What I Said", Mike Sane "Just Like Eddie" and Mike Berry "A Tribute To Buddy Holly". The Beatles, Hollies and Dave Clark Five tracks more common, but nice to see in this company. Favorite track - Screaming Lord Sutch "Good Golly Miss Molly"- has to be the rudest UK recording made before the Pretty Things debute. Audio shifts a little depending on original takes, but all over very good listening. First had label as shown here, thick vinyl and fully laminated cover. (SÄM*) (GÖXÄ*)
