Various Artists - The Best of Beat, Beat, Beat/Volume 2

The Best of Beat, Beat, Beat - eat Beat Beat was a German music programme that ran during the sixties. Not to be confused with the other well known German pop programme Beat Club, Beat Beat Beat was broadcast out of Frankfurt commencing in 1966. The programme ran to 26 episodes between its launch in 1966 and the final programme in January 1969, all of which are still in the German television archives. The shows were eclectic affairs and included performances by artists as diverse as Eric Burdon and the New Animals, The Move, Sam and Dave, Cat Stevens and Barry Ryan, to name just a few.

This volume in the Beat Beat Beat series of releases is rather a mixed bag! We have two tracks from The Move including the band's second single I Can Hear The Grass Grow. There is the psychedelically tinged My Friend Jack from The Smoke, which was banned in the UK. There are three tracks from Liverpool band The Searchers, including the hits Sweets For My Sweet and Love Potion Number Nine and finally we have two massive hits from The Tremeloes with Silence Is Golden and Here Comes My Baby,  which as I am sure everyone knows was written by Cat Stevens.

Track Listing – The Move - Walk Upon The Water, The Move - I Can Hear Grass Grow, The Searchers - Love Potion No.9, The Searchers - Sweets For My Sweet, The Searchers - See See Rider, The Smoke - My Friend Jack, The Tremeloes - Loving You, The Tremeloes - Silence Is Golden, The Tremeloes - Here Comes My Baby
