From the minds behind the Piccadilly Sunshine, Mixed Up Minds, Upside Down, and Electric Sound Show series, Beatfreak! is a journey through the glorious cultural dustbin where beat pop meets paisley rhythm and blues. Prestigious guests include London heavies The Habits; the busker of Baker Street, Gerry Rafferty; a pre-Fleur de Lys Pete Sears and Tago Byers; and a forgotten Bee Gee. A intoxicating marriage of fuzz and flute delivered with disgraceful adolescent abandon -- beware, it's not pretty. Professionally remastered original sound recordings. Includes 20-page full-color booklet with comprehensive background liners and rare archival color photos. Includes rare and obscure tracks by Fingers Lee and the Upperhand, Sons of Fred, The Habits, The Deejays, Ian & the Zodiacs, Casey Jones and the Governors, Roger Young, The Moquettes, The Hinge, The Chasers, The Jensens, Fifth Column, Thursday's Child, Red Squares, The Carpetbaggers, Hedgehoppers Anonymous, Alex Harvey, Trev Gordon, and Greg Hunter.
