V.A. - Merseybeat: Story Of The 60s Liverpool Sound: 2cd








Though there's one of the German recordings here on the first CD its somehow not the same as John Paul George & Ringo-but not the fault of Castle Sanctuary who were unable to obtain any rights.But at least their included for completeness.
The recordings come from all the major labels of the day and include many of the biggest hits by the Searchers,Gerry & the Pacemakers,the Merseys and the Swinging Blue Jeans.And Billy Fury who was Liverpool's first star.
Its also a story of failure as so many Liverpool groups made singles which got nowhere.The detailed fold out sleeve gives full details of everything.
Worst items to my mind are the grotesque version of Singing the Blues by Jason Eddie (brother of Billy Fury) and the total nothing song by Eddie Cave & the Fyx both of which should have been thrown out.
But a strange ommission is Billy J Kramer & the Dakotas
