Various Artists - English Freakbeat Vol. 1 (60's uk, crazed limey teens on a wyld sound rampage!)



I really want to say a big thank to my friend Cudawaver for his cooperation, and for all his hard work, it is very important to me, for this place we share here, which was created with the only aim to offer, we will continue to be here -despite all the difficulties- with consistency and dedication.

I would also like to Thank  all of  you, who stand next to us and give the support we need. Our love for music gives us strength to go on.....as far it goes

Thanks very much for this. I have a later volume, but none of the earlier ones, which tend to be better.
