ENGLAND SWINGS - LUX AND IVY DIG THAT UK SOUND
28 weird and wonderful swinging UK releases from novelty pop to jazz, rock 'n' roll to comedy. Featuring a plethora of household names, from Adam Faith, Dudley Moore, The Dave Clark Five and Tony Hatch. And a cast of oddities from Sharkey Todd And The Monsters to Count Jim Moriarty. Stand out tunes including Jill And The Boulevards' superb 'And Now I Cry', Adam Faith's 'Carve Up' from the soundtrack of the movie, space explorations from Joe Meek, Vigilantes and Tony Hatch. Plus weird moments caught in time courtesy of Max Bygraves (no, really!) and Alma Cogan and some cool instrumental grooves from Dud, Bert Weedon, John Scott and Johnny Dankworth. A crate diggers delight destined to add a slice of crazy Britpop to any aspiring collector of the odd - plus opera completely revamped by Spike Milligan on 'My September Love'. What's not to like?Remastered from the original sound sources with sleeve notes from MOJO magazine's Dave Henderson.
