A tremendous overview of the UK hard rock years at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – a time when some of the biggest groups of the coming decade would move to the forefront, while so many others who never got their due still hit an equally great groove! This set's a strong nod to the legion of excellent British acts that never soared to the heights of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath – but shared a similar ability to push older blues rock and psych modes into much heavier territory – a fiercely dark groove that set the stage for so much music making in decades to come! You're bound to know a few names here, but the set also overflows with lots more work that really illuminates the period – a massive 48 tracks on 3CDs, complete with a hefty
booklet of notes that will take you on one mad musical journey. Titles include "My Son's Alive" by Crushed Butter, "All In Your Mind" by Stray, "Bogeyman" by Writing On The Wall, "Love In The Rain" by Edgar Broughton Band, "Jehovah" by The Velvet Frogs, "Flash" by Bare Soul, "Ascension Day" by Third World War, "Trying To Find My Way Back Home" by Morning After, "Yellow Cave Woman" by Velvett Fogg, "Too Old" by Andromeda, "Occult" by The Kult, "Twisted Trip Woman" by Sweet Slag, "Rock My Soul" by Charge, "Cherry Red" by The Groundhogs, "Apocalypse" by Barnabus, "Falling" by The Iron Maiden, and lots lots more!
