Hoi' Polloi

Thanks to Skeewiff for uploading this nice long lost sunshine pop album. Hoi Polloi only ever privately pressed 500 copies of this album back in 1972 making this album something of a hidden gem. You can find out more about the band here. I believe the original members of the group have since reissued it and you might be able to buy a copy here.

Don't be fooled by the album cover, this is a great album and can be listened to here. There was a glitch with Track 7, so that can be heard here.
