Un-Lost Tommyknockers, The RiP Edition, R.i.P. #10

For the tenth time now, I’m flying the flag once hoisted by the Lolly Pope. After so many rarities saved from oblivion, the risk is, the well of UK Beat is running dry and you’re scraping the bottom. Let’s put it this way: The combos and artists collected here are mostly losers, they all have somehow missed the train to success but still deserve to be heard. And as I know my pal Wenne the Pope loves losers, I’m 100% sure he will enjoy this set. Some tracks might have slipped his attention, others might be new even to him, and I’ve put some special features in the mix that maybe have been sampled somewhere else but are too good to be forgotten. The sets are more or less in chronological order and cover a mixed bag of genres like pre-Beat, Soulish sounds, some ballades and a few psychedelic gumdrops. Last track is dedicated to Wenne, we never talked about them but I’m sure he must have loved the Bonzos, so take my devotion to Viv, mate, next time you meet him… Halleluyeah!

Re: this section left intentionally blank

I sure will do, Scot, ynad you're perfectly right: maybe not the topmost of the toppermost, as John would say, but all good fun I reckon!
Stay cool!

Was "introduced" to Beatles, Stones, Hollies, Merseybeat, Kinks & ALL Brits. sounds in late 70's by best friend from Paris. Been collecting it ever since. Still do NOT recognize many of these groups. THANX! For the "new hears" here.
