German only sampler with cuts recorded for UK EMI early sixties, some of them very rare or even impossible to get elsewhere on 33rpm today. Sixteen tracks, including two - The Blackwells "Why Don't You Love Me" and The Black Knights "I Gotta Woman" - from the "Ferry Cross The Mersey" movie, originally only on the US soundtrack version. Further oddities as Peter And Gordon's "Love Me Baby" (with Brian Jones on harmonica), The Federals "Twilight Time", Gene Vincent And The Shouts "Private Detective", Johnny Kidd And The Pirates "Dr. Feelgood" plus stuff from now forgotten acts like Christian's Crusaders, Tony Rivers And The Castaways and The Leroys. Also included are scarcer tracks from more known bands as Downliners Sect, Hollies, Gerry And The Pacemakers, Sounds Incorporated, Cliff Bennett and Freddie And The Dreamers. When you see a "stereo" sampler with larger part 45 only cuts from the early sixties you'd expect most of it to be faked in some way, but here it seems they dug deep to get the real thing as only five - the ones from Blackwells, Black Knights, Downliners Sect, Christian's Crusaders and Dave Clark Five - are enhanced monos, the remaining eleven true stereo. I guess many of these recordings can be found spread out on various CD compilations today, but if you want them collected in one place on early press vinyl - this is about it. Only issue with label as shown here and laminated cover. (SÄM*) (GÖXÄ*) (FÖGÄ*)
