VA - Hipshaker (A Groovy Blend Of 6T's R&B,Soul And Beat)

This groovy little collection was put together by Dave Clark and Simon Licourinos who were involved in running 60s themed nights called "Hipshaker", based in Portsmouth on the south coast of England. The music is aimed very much at the "Mod"/"Scooterist" crowd and listening to this collection is a bit like being transported back to 1966 with music by British Beat Bands rubbing shoulders with US Soul and R&B with the occasional hint of Jazz and Psychedelia.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
