The Silhouettes from Neuwied had their Pandaemonium debut some three years ago on Vol. 8 and we somehow simply forgot about the fabulous flip of "Tell Me Baby".(Storz) "Crying Over You" sounds like Hollies in the garage and is an instantly catchy, first class example of moody continental Euro Beat.

Gambler on Layola most likely came from Switzerland. "Little Girl" is a great little R&B stomper and, as far as we know, the group's sole 7". The band bravely resists the singer's dubious ambitions towards Memphis Soul and the axemen counters with a solo on his chainsaw. Lucky punch!

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
