V.A. - Live In Concert (1968)

A look at the german mid sixties beat scene. This album was recorded live in Hamburg in december 1967 and was released four month later by Fontana (Fontana 701614 WPY / 1968). You may not like live recordings but "I'm Addicted" made by "The All" and Skip Bifferty's "On Love" by "Cops & Robbers" are pretty powerful and the highlights on this set. I think Mods will have their fun with this record.

1. Cops & Robbers - On Love
2. Rivets - Watch The World
3. All - I'm Addicted
4. Marquee Sect - Barefootin'
5. Tonics - Peepin' And Hidin'
6. Rattles - I'll Catch Her
7. Cops & Robbers - You Keep Me Hanging On
8. All - The Letter
9. Rivets - Right Girl
10. All - I Don't Want To Listen
11. Rattles - Love Of My Life
