The Sound Riders - Liverpool Beat (Live)

 Like The Swinging Blue Jeans and Mike Rat & The Runaways,
The Sound Riders had one of those damn hard to find LPs in the Liverpool Beat-series entitled "Live from the Kaskade Beat Club Cologne". Where they actually came from no-one seems to know, but these recordings from'64 show a very accomplished outfit without the usual language troubles that were so typical for most domestic bands. Their track lists offered a rather schizoid mixture of styles from Down Home R&B via Merseybeat to Chubby Checker's Hucklebuck, all executed in flashing brilliance. While many of these early live-LPs are hardly more than funny, this one is pure fun start to finish. The Riders' lack of own songs
