UC256 – Verlorene Mädchen, Teil 6|
Admittedly , to be fully appreciated I’m afraid this set needs German language skills, and a can’t image what effect it does on all who don’t have. At any rate, I’m convinced the sexy voices of my girls will get through anyway. Finally, music is international, and I can enjoy a compilation with all Yugoslavia artists without understand a word. I’m happy this set kicks off with an homage to my beloved hometown, and many girls und ladies hail not only from confining nations ( Belgium, Denmark, UK, but also the German Democratic Republic, remember we’re in the 60s) but even come from faraway lands such as Sweden, Israel, and South Africa. Of course you have to get through think layers of greasy Humpta Humpta and orchestrated Schmalz, especially when dealing with the female pop music market in Germany. I think I selected the best (uncompiled) efforts. So I hope you’ll dig, Soulbrüder und -schwestern, I know there’s many of you out there, like Jens from the fab Beat Fräuleins series. Let me know, your comments keep this page alive.CD#101/ Anita Berggreen - Okey – DENMARK (?)02/ Anita Weibel - Was hab ich getan 03/ Bärbel Wachholz - Wo ist der Mann 04/ Birgit Sommer - Ein Zahn zuviel 05/ Britta Martell - Ich bin auf dem Weg zu dir - GDR06/ Cornely Singers - Lazy Boy 07/ Dusty Springfield & Springfields - Das Kostet Keinen Pfennig - UK08/ Ewa Roos - Wer nicht will der lasst es bleiben - SWEDEN09/ Gina Dobra - Ich komm nicht los von dir - BULGARIA10/ Gitti & Rena - Liebelei ist keine Liebe - GDR11/ Gitti & Rena - Zum Küssen brauch ich Dich - GDR12/ Heidi Bachert - Super - Boy - 13/ Ina Martell - Zwei Küsse beim Nachhause gehen'n - GDR14/ Isabella Bond & Top Ten Allstars - Downtown - SCOTLAND / D15/ Margit Schneider - Was ich nicht weiß – SWIZZ 16/ Marion Litterscheid - Terry 17/ Nora Nova - Papagallo - GDR18/ Patty - Bleib hier, Johnny 19/ Peggy Peters - Java Boy 20/ Peggy Peters & Sisters - Gib nicht so an 21/ Ria Bartok - Zu schade dafür - FRANCE22/ Rosemarie Ambe - Hully Gully am Strand - GDR23/ Sibyll Wagner - Computer Nr. 3 24/ Sonnie - Mein Sonny Boy ist ein Schneemann D25/ Terry Lamo - Du kommst nie wieder - BELGIUM26/ Vera Anders - Die Stiefel sind zum Wandern 27/ Vonny Berger - Lulu Cherie – CANADA / FRANCECD#201/ Anita Weibel - So hat alles angefangen 02/ Bärbel Wachholz - Tennessee Waltz (live)03/ Beat Girls - Stupid Cupid – HOLLAND 04/ Brigitte Ahrens - Lass dich doch bald wieder seh'n05/ Caroline - Helicopter U.S. Navy 06/ Daimi - Teenager Boy - DENMARK07/ Elisa Gabbai / Aliza Gabbai - Vorbei sind die Tränen - ISRAEL08/ Four Jacks & a Jill - Master Jack (German Version) – SOUTH AFRICA09/ Gitti & Rena - Junge Liebe ist schön - GDR10/ Gitti & Rena - Nenn' mich nicht mehr Baby - GDR11/ Grethe Ingmann - Kommt ein weisses Schiff aus Java - DENMARK12/ Helen Shapiro - Das ist nicht die feine englische Art - UK13/ Ingela Brander - Blonder Tiger - SWEDEN14/ Manuela - Karawane aus Abadan 15/ Marion Litterscheid - Wir halten fest zusammen 16/ Nina Lizell - Jetzt oder nie - SWEDEN17/ Pat Simon - Komplimente 18/ Peggy Peters & Girls - Ich setze alles auf eine Karte 19/ Peggy Peters & Girls - Keine Schule mehr 20/ Petula Clark - I Know A Place (German) - UK21/ Rickie Blue - Ich küsse, wen ich will 22/ Sherry Sisters - Tu' das nie 23/ Sonnie - Das wird nie anders sein 24/ Susie Dore - Flower Power Kleid 25/ Tina Brix - Lang, lang ist's her - GDR26/ Vonny Berger - Die Seine darf alles wissen - CANADA/ FRANCE27/ Yvonne Carre - My Boy - UK

UC264 - Vergeten Nederbeat Deel 5|
I admit the bulk of live tracks on this set might indicate we really are scratiching the bottom of the Beat barrel (- shouts and noises from the audience sometimes are louder than the music itself! - ), although me myself even listening to 2 versions of Shake Hands, and Woll Bully, plus amateurish takes of My Generation, For Your Love, I’m a Man, and Walking the Dog I cant’t help but feel inside of the happening scene getting all of those unique thrills again even after 5o years of time, so why should I worry about anything else or look for other probably better versions? As you might fear, you get a mix of sounds, starting off with a Danceparty at a Dutch beach, ie. with the cry of seaguls. I’m really buffled so many uncompiled tracks from the Netherlands have popped up tho’ everyone thought this land has been grazed widely. I hope this set will prove the contrary with flashy sounds and original (dada) wordings, the term Nederbeat stands for.

UC263 - Batidos do Brasil, ….novamente |
Olà, the day after I finished the recent edition all at once many more tracks popped up from the Brazilian Underground so I thought the best would be to create a volume #2
. So here’s more of the garagey side of Brazil, I compliment Os Brazilian Boys for their Dada English, and I pardon Os Inocentes for whistling during the recording session (which ain’t garage at all, I’m afraid). I hope you’ll enjoy the softer side of Garage, which is never angry (I repeat), but you can sing along from the first to the last track. After all, I was imagining what this set would sound like (and if there were even much more gems!) if Brazil’s recording industry and mass media wasn’t that much behind. At any rate, I think I’ve collected all valid and never compiled tunes you will only get here or at youtube channels José Claudio Menezes De Souza - Valdi Santos – Tralha Brasil - Tropicália Discos Melomano Discos – Schutbart (muito obrigado meus amigos!)

UC262 – Batidos do Brasil|
Searching for Brazilian Garage nuggets (time frame is 1965 to 67, before Tropicalia kicked in) , you find some amusing things like one of the most famous groups called Brazilian Bitles (sic) who recorded "Satisfaction". Or take a group that was made to publish their records (quite successfully) under more than 10 different names, tho’ they were still the same (The Fevers). At any rate, I admit most Brazilian 6os singles can only hardly be tagged Garage, and you might miss snotty voices, overridden fuzz and wild screams. In other words, it somehow misses the rough edge. Brazilian pop is closer to The Beatles than to the Stones, it prefers choruses to single voices, and, most of all, it’s never angry! (I don’t know how they manage that). So after skipping the boatload of choral songs backed by just acoustic guitars and bongos around a campfire (which is not really Garage), I’m proud to present 51 tunes in the Garage vein that have remained uncompiled on the various commercial and private comps available. To give my set a fresh kick, I have thrown some girls in the mix, and I’ve enclosed some poppier efforts as well. Wackily, It all ends with an instrumental penned by Frenchman Chopin. I hope you dig, and you will like the booklet as well. Desfrutem, garatos e garotos! (and send me some signal of appreciation / feedback!)

UC261 - Devils, Monsters, Witches, Cobras, Zombies, Nightmares and other bad luck|
Well , boys and girls, I’m afraid we’re back again on the spooky old monster trail, I just didn’t want to wait for Halloween, as it’s for kiddies . So beware and prepare to meet all kinds of personification of the wicked and the evil I think you’ll never have met before but they are always on the lure for you. Luckily, there’s some good dudes as well (like Batman and Tarzan, not so sure about Frankystein) who will be helpful to keep the devil away and avoid the final disaster of the Day the Whole World Died, I hope. This set hardly fits the 60s Uncomped tag, as many monsters hail from the 50s, even 52, but do not fear (pun intended) , they’ll always be scary as hell and will make your bones shiver. I hope you’ll dig some delicious specialty of our "32 Corpse Monster Dinner", like Cadaver Barbeque for entrée, Brain on Half Shell, Goulash with Hearse Radish, and Fresh Cut Ladies’ Fingers for dessert. So raise a glass of Bloody Mary to my friends Igor, Hoodoo the Voodoo, Baron Daemon, John Zacherle, Boris, Louis the Monster Miss, and specially Joe Bad. Tell them R.M. Renfield says hello! 01/ (

UC260 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped - US Garage Gems, Vol. 37|Since US Gems #36, in just 3 month time I have collected quote a load of uncompiled tunes which means the US Garage well is far from running dry. I admit I have widened the confines slightly since I reckon some groups did Garage long before the tem was invented, black musicians can be a garage band, too, and pop stars of dubious past exceptionally recorded Garage songs, so I think it’s only right (and mostly good fun) to include tunes that have slipped compilations and anthologies so far. Moreover, most of the groups even slipped the Bible (Teenage Mayhem, that is). Which means I did a good digging job, right? As always, the tracks are (more or less) chronologically ordered, so you will end up in the 70s which equals the beginning of the end. Of course, huge thanks go out to the all bloggers youtubers and special site runners I have listed in the booklet. Move to the Beat, brothers and sisters!

TOMMYKNOCKERS BEAT CLUB – THE R.I.P. EDITIONS, VOLUME 12|
Well, if the city of Rome was built on 12 hills, and Moses delivered 12 holy commandments to the world, then I hope this set number 12 will be a most noble devotion to my friend and inspiration Werner alias the Lolly Pope , RiP. I admit it was much overdue, but since #11
many new uncompiled gems have come up to the surface, which proves the UK catacombs keep on yielding unheard / overheard gems, right? I‘m sure the Lolly Pope will pardon me for being slow, but here, finally, is a double set with 48 fresh sounds that not have seen any reissue before and feature many groups who never got a mention in any UK beat encyclopedia, like the Limeys, or the Lemmings. Some acetates are waiting for identification, as well. I’m sure The Lolly Pope will bless my efforts. And I hope you’ll dig.

Linda Lee’s Lost & Beloved, Vol. 6 |
For the 6th time back again with lovely Linda’s finds proving once again her extraordinary (garage) taste and her ongoing efforts in diggin’ up fresh, uncompiled recordings (45s, acetates, even tapes) . As usual, she delivers various sounds from early frat instros to kinda soulish efforts, and from moody ballads to wacky psychedelia, as you will hear. In between, some slightly poppier outings and some ultra rare, unnamed tracks (which are waiting for ID, anyone?) I’m not sure of how the last track by Witches Bru was recorded, tho’ it sounds interesting. Anyway, huge thanks go out to our gal Linda, and good luck for your further diggin’ work! (with this series, I focus on the unreleased stuff, you will find more great tracks at youtube Linda Lee https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1wvJWUJyu5FVH20KrEp0Cg

Interspiel - German Twisters|
I doubt this double set will get many followers. Tho I hope it proves, by its variety of interpretation, that the Twist was non a short lived dance fad but a musical genre, say as Surf music. Like Surf, it’s all about FUN lacking all serious approach, and it swept all over the world and was played and danced from 1960 to 64, even in 65! When the wave swept over to Germany, my fellows did what they could to render things more serious, tho' singing about parrots, donkeys, geishas and watussis doesn’t help, I’m afraid. So I hope the ones out there who don’t speak German will anyway appreciate those nifty, ridiculous rhymes and wacky wordings, or anyway might still get a good sound picture about what was goin’ on in the Milkshake bars and Beer Kellers and Tanzkaschemmen soon after the war and rebuilding the country: naïve, unabashed, inept, unhinged , ….FUN!
For the rest, I suggest you follow Peter Wegen’s advice for Poor little Sheila: “Halt in Gang dein kleines Feuer / Binde gut deinen Esel fest / Denn von allem was dir lieb und teuer / blieb dir nur dieser schmale Rest!”
PS many tracks appear on CDs “Twist in der DDR” and “Twist in D” recently published by a famous German oldie label but I kicked out the lame and lousy tracks (like Yodel Twist ecc.) and added many more overheard gems which makes my set definitely a much better hear! Grab it while you can! Nice cover shots in booklet!

UC 259 – Non - Garage #6|
Clap you feet! We're back again with more tunes that all - for one reason or another - cannot be stashed into the Garage drawer, although….. I’m afraid yodeling and comb blowing is not exactly Garage, and luscious female groaning and Ya Habibis don’t help either, although the final vomit on We'll Not Twist Again definitely adds a garage twist. Germany and Great Britain lead on this set, followed by artists from literally all over the world proving that stupidity and fun are an international phenomena. I guess this is my favorite series of the 60sUC archive as it features never compiled tracks (which probably won’t see any further publication than here), and it should deliver a fab soundtrack to parties, specially with lots of kids or childish people. Our party kicks off with a promo for Cherry B, and I’ve thrown some unapt radio ads in the mix. For the rest, I suggest you follow Margot Resch’s genius “Kartoffel Beat, every boor can dance to it / stepping on other people’s feet / doin‘ the Kartoffel Beat”.
