V.A. - Stora Popboxen (3 CD-Set)

Not my rip but a pretty good overview of the swedish '60s scene. On this 3 CD-Set (EMI 724347515729 / 1996) you will find all kinds of heights (and all kinds of low). 20% good, 30% OK and 50% uninteresting/boring stuff to my ears. If you already have the fantastic "Searching For Shakes" and the promisng "Who Will Buy Those Wonderful Evils" compilations than you probably don't need this one (although the pop tunes on disc 3 may interest some).

Thanks so much for this set. Brit & Euro beat from the early - mid 60s is difficult to find here in Texas, USA

Thanks a lot...many great songs on this Swedish Pop boxset.
One of my faves is John Julian & Gurt Görans...Misery is such mystery.
Same class as The Beatles or The Kinks or any other great 60´s band.
Cheers Dan.
