 Pop, beat, psych 1960 ~ 1970

Here, the second page to comprise of "Various Artists" albums, you will find LP's in stock that pertain to popular music recorded in the 1960's. This is where to retrieve the sounds of British beat, psychedelia from England and elsewhere, along with the regular pop sounds of the era.  Soundtrack albums that include pop music and the suchlike are now listed on a separate page.

As a reminder, there are already Various Artists categories within the Blues, Folk , and Soul pages, and of course the 1960's~70's Rock. listing. Some pre 1960 compilations are listed on the John Barry page.


All these records have been inspected thoroughly. uniform grade is Sleeve / Vinyl.

So that there is some sort of continuity here, has been set out in the order of:

Left-over rock 'n' roll, and the origination of pop groups (Merseybeat, etc)
Early to mid 60's pop beat
 Mid to late 60's pop (including middle-of-the-road)

What a great title for the commencement of this page's listings! 'Good name!' (sorry Bruce)

This album is presented as a show, with audience clapping and laughing, but methinks this has been 'added'. Spoken introduction "PYE Records present Curtain Up...", leading into Bruce Forsyth doing the honours,  cracking odd (or is it old) jokes along the way. There are spoken introductions by Petula Clark, Bill Shepherd, and Cherry Wainer. Sleeve notes by Michael Barclay and Alan Freeman who were then A&R men for PYE, with Alan later being renowned  for being a disc jockey.

Photographs of all the stars and Bruce on the laminated front cover.

Kent Walton was one of the presenters on Radio Luxemburg. Many of the programmes on this station were sponsored by products and record companies. Actually, the terminology 'sponsored' is just an angle to get in-your-face (or in this case 'ear'!) advertising across to the public The programmes would go ahead anyway. Just look at today's typical example of Cadbury's 'sponsoring' Coronation Street.

Interestingly, the back cover of this Golden Guinea LP lists other titles available at 21/- each (a guinea = one pound and one shilling), but if you wish to purchase Stereo examples, these are 27 / 6  !! .. Platinum Guinea?

In 1981, the BBC, in conjunction with Billboard USA,  produced a weekly series for Radio Broadcast
  that integrated news items with popular songs that had been issued as singles. This concept was
 later adapted into a television series. 

On offer here are a selection of the Transcription discs that were for Radio Broadcast purposes, titled  ' 25 YEARS OF ROCK'.

There are no cue sheets. Possibly none were issued, as these LP's are not banded, being as the news items blend in with
the beginning and end of each song, with many being the full version (i.e. not abridged). However the previous owner has 
written down on paper the tracks and news items featured on each record. 

Not the complete set available, hence the selling of individual discs. All are genuine 'BBC TRANSCRIPTI0N SERV1CES' discs.
All are standard recordings. Duration of each side is at least 50 minutes, therefore each disc is 100+ minutes.
They appear to have been played two or three times only.

Who "Magic Bus", 1910 Fruitgum Company,  Ricardo Ray, Turtles, Amboy Dukes "Journey...", Happenings,
Lemon Pipers "Jelly Jungle", Sonny & Cher "The Beat Goes On", Lemon Pipers "Rice Is Nice" - of course

I would not think for one minute that this is an "official" album, but the recordings are all of excellent quality. Front cover is a groovy Stephanie Powers look-alike.

GROUPQUAKE ~ RCA 1968 (Canada)

Youngbloods, Status Cymbal, Autosalvage, Stone Country, Joyfull Noise, Loading Zone, Group Therapy, Family Tree.

  RCA Victor Living Stereo SPS 33-64: Sleeve VG+ * Record VG? (plays VG+ to NM) @ 10
no image


  Lemon Pipers = Jelly Jungle + Rice Is Nice + Blueberry Blue + Green Tambourine,
1910 Fruitgum Company = Simon Says + Indian Giver + Goody Goody Gumdrops + 1 2 3 red Light,
Ohio Express = Mercy + Down At Lulus + Chewy Chewy *  Kasenetz-Katz Singing Circus = Quick Joey Small

Kasenetz-Katz is a collaboration of Ohio Express and others. Did I really buy this single at the time?
Some good pop songs under the 'bubblegum' guise, that was short-lived as proven here, with these tracks spanning December 1967 (Green Tambourine) to just October 1968 (Goody..- not really bg). "Indian Giver" was January 1969, but as this song proves, by then we had enough of chewing on this fad. The cover art is after the style of Andy Warhol.
            (dates quoted are initial entry into U.S. Charts).

In case you have not realised from the above listing, these are all Dutch acts. This album is recommended as an excellent introduction to any who have not ventured into this area of collective music. Once hooked, don't go to Holland expecting to pick up with ease any original vinyl of these groups, or similar, as the Dutch are very reluctant to let go of their "Nederbeat"!

Variable sound quality, with the Majority recording taken from a used disc/ acetate?, but all are okay, with no clicking, etc.
