Hello all
Sorry for my absence. With this comp I wanted to scoop up some interesting tracks from the 'beat' period just before psych. In many respects the period 63-66 was the most exciting in terms of emerging new talent, original ideas and musical progression. This culminated in the pop singles creative peak in 1965-67.

These tracks don't attempt to represent musical peaks. But just as a reminder of some wonderful records that have fallen through the cracks. This is not a garage comp (there are many blogs with a much better grasp of the genre). 

Its a compilation of personal faves and tracks of interest the came before the psych era. I originally intended it to be british artists only, but kept stumbling across great tracks from the US

Sorry if its all a bit random. But as always I just want to create an enjoyable listen...
Normal service will be resumed with Psych Crackle and Pop Vol 19 shortly...
