Hipshakers Vol. 10

If you bought and enjoyed the compilations Le Beat Bespoke Volumes 1 and 2 by the New Untouchables, then you’ll probably enjoy this compilation by New Untouchables head man Rob Bailey. This is Volume 10 of his 10 volume series which he privately sold on cassette tape prior to releasing the CDs. Actually, this volume was the only one of the series which he put out on CD-R. Like the Le Beat Bespoke compilations, it’s a mix of mod, garage, psych, freakbeat, blue-eyed soul, and is very good for any foot–tappin’ party. This is my favorite volume of the series.

The original CD-R only played as two tracks so I’ve split them all up into their individual tracks so as to make it a bit more user-friendly. Sorry about the black and white cover as my copy is a photocopy of a friend’s.

N.B. I see there will soon be a volume 3 of Le Beat Bespoke.

Sleaz and Cheaz

I've been listening to a great mix this past week which I'd downloaded from the Sleazy Listening blog. It's a compilation of music from 70's Italian soft-core porn movies, most notably the Black Emmanuelle series, and Serge Gainsbourg orientated songs as well as a few others thrown in. The whole thing has been very slickly mixed and makes a perfect accompaniment to those more tender moments when you are with your girlfriend. I recommend visiting Sleazy Listening and having a listen.

Sixties Garage and Psychedelic Bands, Volume 3 (video)

Here’s Volume 3 of the compilation I made of videos of various sixties garage and psychedelic bands, plus a few extras. The quality does vary as all of it came from different sources on the internet. Thanks to people like Bedazzled and Beyond the Beat Generation for uploading the originals.

I have a video with another two hours of American garage bands which I may post at a later date. The quality of it is very bad at times, but apart from about three tracks, none of it I have posted before.
