Rare work from The Firebeats – a hell of a great group from the Norwegian scene of the 60s, and one who have the best qualities of all the British beat combos of the time! Like those groups, The Firebeats serve up a blend of tuneful rock with some deeper currents borrowed from American soul and R&B – all with a melodic approach that almost reminds us of some of the bigger Brit Invasion acts who cracked the charts on our side of the Atlantic! The group's one album is plenty darn rare, and these tracks are even more obscure – pulled from rare singles on HMV, and combined with some early demo tracks and outtakes – lyrics mostly in English, on tracks that include "Don't Throw Stones
", "Let Me Tell You", "Little Girl", "Hemmeling Agent", "I Feel Fine", "Buckleshoe Stomp", "If You Need Me", "It's So Easy", "Jack The Ripper", and "Oh Carol".
(Great package – heavy vinyl, excellent cover and inner sleeve, and bonus poster too!)
