The Immigrants - The Immigrants (1966)

Mp3\73Mb
********
One of the more obscure local garage LPs, recorded in Kansas by a group of NY/NJ college boys. Has a cool sleeve like most albums in the genre and some pretty decent sounds inside; two cool beat-garage originals and some unusual covers (like the Beatles' "Run for your life") all fed through a whiney New England type sound. The recording is lo-fi and not exactly dynamic. It ain't the Sonics but it sure beats the Rolling Stones! The band also had a 45.

Liverbirds - More Of The Liverbirds (1966)

Mp3\48Mb
*******
The Liverbirds (sometimes spelled Liver Birds) were one of the more distinctive outfits in Liverpool (and anywhere else, for that matter) by virtue of the fact that they were a hard-rocking all-girl group, self-contained instrumentally and focused on rhythm-and-blues. They weren't too successful musically in Liverpool, but in 1963 they went to Hamburg, where they became one of the most popular acts ever to play the Star Club. Irene Green (vocals), Sheila McGlory (guitar, vocals), Mary McGlory (bass, vocals), Pamela Birch (guitar, vocals), Valerie Gell (guitar, vocals), and Sylvia Saunders (drums) got together in early 1962 under the name the Debutones, before changing it to the more city-specific Liverbirds. Irene Green left to join Tiffany's Dimensions, while Sheila McGlory jumped to the Demoiselles, and reduced to a quartet the Liverbirds became a major attraction at the Star Club, cutting two LPs for the label of that name and charting a No. 5 single in Germany with their cover of "Diddley Daddy." They were startling to look at in an era when girl singers were supposed to be pretty on stage, four tough-looking northern girls dressed in black and playing their instruments with attitude-they cut a savage version of Bo Diddley's "Mona," and could rip through most any rock 'n roll standard, but when their record company had them throw on a soft Everly Bros.-type ballad or two, it sounded more like a joke; these girls couldn't harmonize to save their lives, but they rocked their asses off.

SAUTERELLES “VIEW TO HEAVEN” (DECCA, 1968) Swiss

Mp3\45Mb
********
A Swiss '60s band that have sometimes been mistakenly identified as a British group due to their 1968 single "Dream Machine," a quite catchy and enjoyable facsimile of British flower-pop with high harmonies, psychedelic lyrics, and driving guitars. The band had actually been recording since 1965, and established themselves as one of Switzerland's best and most popular groups. That's a status that doesn't confer all that much, Switzerland being a small country, and much of their first LP (1966) was filled with covers of popular rock hits. These were interpreted, however, with a brash energy that makes the record stand out above the scores of similar cover-oriented albums produced around the globe during the era. "Dream Machine" was a more original effort, and an album from 1968, View to Heaven, also had a more pronounced folk and psychedelic feel than their earliest outings. Les Sauterelles continued recording all the way into the early '70s, and several of their songs (notably "Dream Machine") surfaced on collector-oriented reissues in the 1980s.

The Mojos - Everythings Alright (singles 1963-1967)

Mp3\42Mb
*******
Known mostly (if at all) in the States for doing the original version of "Everything's Alright" (covered by David Bowie on his Pin Ups album), the Mojos were one of the best Liverpool groups of the British Invasion. Besides "Everything's Alright" — a Top Ten raver in the U.K. — they never scored any other British hits of note, though a couple squeezed into the Top 30. Bob Conrad (drums), Keith Karlson (bass), Stu James (vocals, harmonica), and Adrian Wilkinson (guitar) had first gotten together in the early '60s as the Nomads — though based in Liverpool, they were a bit different from most of the other Merseyside bands in that their first love was American blues rather than R&B and rock & ...

The Fourmost- The Best Of REUPLOAD

Mp3 224\121 Mb
*********************
The Fourmost were one of the best Merseyside groups of the early 60s and might have had an even better chart record than they had if they hadn't suffered more than their share of bad luck. This splendid set reminds us just how outstanding they were. There are 33 tracks here and, considering that they had only 6 chart entries (which are all included here, with the respective B sides), one might have expected to have to make allowance for some makeweight items. But this isn't the case at all--virtually everything of every style is of high quality in all departments. Almost all the tracks are the originals but one or two later ones sound like re-recordings. This is a fine memento of the group's varied repertoire and acts as a worthy memorial to two of the group who are no longer with us, Mike Millward and Brian O'Hara.
In the words of the overworked title, all the hits and more.This is the definitive collection, if you like the Fourmost you are bound to enjoy this album.. All the regulars are there,Hello Little girl,Alittle lovin,I'm in love,baby I need your lovin and the rest. Also the slightly bizarre,Aunty Maggies remedy, Girls, girls, girls. But this is the Fourmost, their original stage routine consisted of a number of comedy songs. A Fourmost fan? Then this is for you, and its long overdue
