The big breakthrough came with their third single, the Louie LouieYou Really Got Me. It's insistent riff powered what was a classic single to No. 1 in the UK in the Summer of 1964 and it also got to No. 7 in the US. Its style very much set the tone for all their singles in this early period. To cash in on this success they were pressured to put out an album which at the time rose to No. 3. In retrospect, though, it contained little of interest other than Ray Davies' Stop Your Sobbing and the instrumental Revenge (which session guitarist Jimmy Page would later re-record with lyrics added). The remaining material was mostly covers of R&B classics by the like of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, though another rehash of Slim Harpo's Got Love If You Want It had originally been on their five track demo.
Tv cuts, radio promos, raw versions. Ok, the quality is not the best but I can promise that you would feel a whole lotta better after listening this rare treasure. 25 killer songs, plus the full artwork, thanks to my friend Santiago that let me use his scanner. Hope you enjoy this one, this one goes to Henry and Aldo, two special visitors from the house.
