Recorded between 1964 and 1966, this is the first-ever collection of tracks by the quartet that would soon evolve into psychedelic heroes The Blossom Toes. Formed in London, they were managed by the legendary Giorgio Gomelsky (discover of The Rolling Stones and manager of The Yardbirds), and honed their live act in Paris, Spain, Morocco and elsewhere, issuing 45s in France and Italy but not at home. This comprehensive set collects all their studio recordings, as well as previously-unheard demos and a rare live cut that captures their exciting stage act. It comes complete with a full booklet featuring rare photos and detailed notes by guitarist Brian Godding.
