...20 Previously Uncomped Slices of Prime British Beat 1964-66. Welcome to Try Me Out, 20 tempting portions of prime British beat previously uncomped on CD. Psychic Circle's second-ever release was I Walk The Lonely Night, a collection of British beat rarities which concentrated on the inexplicably overlooked, melodic pop side of the genre. They subtitled the album Ballroom Beat Volume 1 to indicate that the music contained within was a bit more all-embracing than the hard-rocking R&B which emanated from smoky blues basements. What we have here is volume two, full of artistes who typify Saturday night in a provincial dance hall. You'll find a Scottish band who only had records released in Germany, one of Brian Epstein's less successful discoveries, two different early versions of King Crimson, a Coronation Street actor trying his hand at pop, and the band that would soon become Marmalade, plus, of course, a host of further delights. Resistance is futile. Compiled by legendary psych musician and Psychic Circle label-head, Nick Saloman (The Bevis Frond). Artists include: Bern Elliott & The Klan, The Echo Sounds, The New York Public Library, The League Of Gentlemen, The Rustiks, Marshall Scott Etc., Bobby Shafto, Dean Ford & The Gaylords, The Epics, The Peeps, Chris Sandford & The Coronets, The Gobbledegooks, The Addicts, Sammy King & The Voltairs, Trendsetters Ltd., Gidian, Ricky Ford & The Tennesseans, Don Charles, The Showtimers and The Pathfinders.
