Description

    A 3 CD BOX SET OF KIWI MOD, SOUL, R’n’B and FREAKBEAT NUGGETS (1964-69)

    80 tracks with 36-page booklet...Many tracks on CD for the first time including 6 unreleased tracks.

    80 recordings from the most British country outside of the UK. Immigration from the Motherland was at a peak during the 50s and 60s which saw a new breed of confident young English born immigrant which when added to our resourceful teens caused a mu­sical youthquake. Isolation (next stop Antartica) meant that we were 3 months behind with the latest records from overseas and because our seasons are the opposite to the Northern hemisphere, we were always a year behind in the fashion stakes... but we didn’t mind-we were having a ball down here as you will hear from this collection.
