Various Artists – Rock Invasion (1956 – 1969) (1978)

FrontCover1This is a very rare sampler from 1978 released by London Records (I guess this album should promote their “Collectors Edition; in this edition London Records published many samplers of British acts like “Savoy Brown”, “Ten Years After”, David Bowie, “Them”, John Mayall or “Thin Lizzy” amongst others.

You can hear more or less rare recordings by musicians like Joe Cocker (“I’ll Cry Instead”), Rod Stewart (“Good Morning Little School Girl “), “Unit Four + Two” (“Concrete And Clay”) or “The Graham Bond Organisation” (“Long Tall Shorty”).

Listen and enjoy this music, from the days when we were young … Reflections of my life … And songs like ” Watcha Gonna Do About It”, “Long Tall Shorty” or “Tobacco Road” stands the test of time ! And maybe it´s time, to discover this period of music again … who knows ?
