The complete early 70s sessions of Hotlegs – the group that hit the charts for brief moment thanks to the unforgettable, sparely drum-heavy, kinda Kinks-ian "Neanderthal Man" single – and later went on to shuffle the line-up a bit and reintroduce themselves as 10CC! We've heard and loved "Neanderthal Man", but it's with thanks to this stellar compilation that we're being hipped to the hook-laden, pop rock excellence their other '70-'71 recordings! Hotlegs is at its core the trio of Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme – all soon-to-be 10CC (Graham Gouldman actually plays bass on one song, too) – and the eclectic soft rock genius of that group is indeed on display here, albeit at a formative level! Witty and catchy, yet restlessly creative songs from players who were really just getting started! Titles include "Neanderthal Man", "How Many Times", "Desperate Dan", "Um Wah, Um Woh", "Fly Way", "Run Baby Run", "The Loser", "Today", "Lady Sadie", "YOu Didn't Like It Because You Didn't Think Of It", "Neanderthal Man (Alternative US Mix)" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cupol/RPM (UK), 1968. New Copy
Sweet Swedish pop from the end of the 60s – a cool combo that features a young Benny Andersson in pre-Abba days – working here in a mode that's got plenty of Sunshine Pop touches from the west coast scene in the US! There's plenty of sunny harmonies on the tunes, and the guitar lines ... CD
Imperial/Esoteric (UK), 1967. New Copy
Mindblowing music from Hapshash & The Coloured Coat – a group with a sound that's every bit as freewheeling as their name! The set's a unique collaboration between DJ/producer Guy Stevens and psych poster designers Michael English and Nigel Weymouth – and has this loose, unfettered ... CD
Western Flier
Imperial/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy
The first time out, these guys seemed more like a mistake or a studio collision (and we mean that in a good way!) – but for this second set, Haphash and crew have really evolved – getting a bit tighter and more focused – yet still sticking to the trippy multi-colored style that ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Killer instrumentals from the glory days of the garagey combo – a smoking little set that's very heavy on twangers – those wicked guitar-driven cuts that were often recorded with lots of cool echo and effects! Some of the names here are big ones, but most are smaller and lesser-known ... CD
Tape Recorder & Synthesiser Ensemble
Finders Keepers (UK), Early 80s. New Copy
Never-heard sounds from this amazing UK duo – an early 80s outfit who went by the name of Tape Recorder & Synthesizer Ensemble – a very good choice, given the instrumentation on the set! Most of the music here is relatively spare, but surprisingly tuneful – kind of in a space ... CD
Cameo/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy
The complete Cameo Recordings of Jo Ann Campbell – a really unusual singer who first popped up in the earliest days of rock n roll, and who's working here at sort of a second chapter of her too-short career! The style is a mix of older rock and country modes with a tighter 60s sense of girl ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy
Not the New York Dolls – despite their striking picture on the cover – and instead a whole host of great tracks from previous decades – all the rich R&B, rock, and soul that inspired the later sound of the Dolls! The cuts here are all nice and gritty, and plenty soulful too ... CD
Norton, 1963/1964. New Copy
Surf-styled southwestern instrumentals from the early 60s El Paso scene – half of which saw limited light of day as singles back then, but are super rare now – the other half entirely unreleased! This might be the best yet in Norton's El Paso Rock series – pulling together long-bu ... CD
Butterfield Blues Band Live Vol 2
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy
A smoking live set from the Butterfield Blues Band – and like all the group's work, as much of a jazz and soul album as a blues one! Butterfield drew his inspiration from the Chicago bluesmen, it's true – but his style also has plenty of echoes of New Orleans soul, Memphis R&B, and ... CD
Original Lost Elektra Sessions
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1964. New Copy
Massive lost work from the Butterfield Blues Band – recorded in 1964, quite early in the group's career – but a set that already has them hitting hard with a really powerful sound! The recording quality and overall sound is nice and rough – a gritty groove that's more closely ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
A wonderful collection of work from Brenda Holloway – one that really digs deep to find some overlooked gems from her 60s years at Motown – including 8 previously unissued tracks! The core of the collection features The Artistry Of Brenda Holloway album – a late 60s UK-only ... CD
