Artist: Various Artists
Title: British Teen Rarities (Various Artists)
Label: Naked Lunch
Product Type: VINYL LP
Compilation of rare British songs from the years that immediately preceded the great Beat explosion. This can be considered some sort of quiet land before the storm populated by lots of young voices, fresh melodies, gentle and catchy grooves, and colorful strings arrangements. The disc starts with Peter Gordeno singing "I'll Kiss Your Teardrops Away": a fabulous opener for a rich program of mostly obscure and yet brilliant artists such as David Martin, Mary Jane, The Avons, Tim Connor, Jimmy Crawford. A real treat for all fans of British pop music of the '60s. Also features Jan Brunette, Dean Stevens, Lance Fortune, Susan Singer, The Kaye Sisters, Josh Hanna, Lynda Graham, Tony Sheveton, Russ Sainty, Bobbi Carol, Mark Peters, Dean Stevens, and Gary Lane.
