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.
