So the story goes,a teenage girl named Leslie Samuels and her girlfriend were sent to the UK to study for the summer of 1967. Leslie had sent many many things to the Beatles and on July.31,1967,she and her friend decided to drop in on Paul McCartney at his home (which was the home of Jane Ashers family) at 7 Cavendish Avenue. Paul is very kind and friendly and even knows who she is by her name. The interview with Paul is 34 minutes long and is complete. The two girls then go to George Harrison's home,Kinfauns,and find George at home. George is also very happy and friendly and he also knows who Leslie is when she tells him her name. The interview with George is 23 minutes long and is complete,even though there are some drop outs throughout the recording. This is one of the most unique Beatles-related recordings you will find. It captures rare candid interviews with Paul and George less than two months after the release of "Sgt.Pepper". This RARE recording is pretty good for it's age,considering it comes from an old cassette tape!

Heavy Rock/Heavy Psych/Stoner Rock power trio formed in San Francisco in 1969 by the Texan drummer Don Peck. In the style of Bluee Cheer, they soon had a rather Rough, Tuff reputation, playing Haight street fairs and Hells Angels biker parties. At one point they even had a singer with an iron hook for a hand, which he could use as a slide for his guitar, or for more violent purposes. Shiver played "heavy psychedelic rock” at its most primal — no overdubs, raw as hell. Rising from the same scene of Texas freaks like The 13th Floor Elevators, Johnny Gee & The G Men, and a pre-ZZ Top, Warlocks. In a city known for peace, love and flower power, San Francisco’s Shiver was an over the top, in your face, balls to the wall ‘gang’ of musicians that felt at home with Hell´s Angels and Hippies alike.

Country Joe and the Fish were a rock band most widely known for musical protests against the Vietnam War, from 1966 to 1971, and also regarded as a seminal influence to psychedelic rock. The group began with the nucleus of "Country Joe" McDonald (lead vocals) and Barry "The Fish" Melton (lead guitar), recording and performing for the "Teach-in" protests against the Vietnam War in 1965. Co-founders McDonald and Melton added musicians as needed over the life of the band. By 1967, the group included Gary "Chicken" Hirsh (drums); David Cohen (keyboards) and Bruce Barthol (bass). The 1967 lineup lasted only two years, and by the 1969 Woodstock Festival, the lineup included Greg 'Duke' Dewey (drums), Mark Kapner (keyboards) and Doug Metzler (bass). Electric Music For The Mind And Body, Country Joe and the Fish's debut album, was one of the first psychedelic albums to come out of San Francisco. Tracks from the LP, especially "Section 43", "Grace", and "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine" were played on progressive FM rock stations like KSAN and KMPX in San Francisco, often back-to-back. A famous version of the song "Love" was performed at the 1969 Woodstock Festival. "Grace" is a tribute to Jefferson Airplane's lead singer, Grace Slick. 01 - Flying High 02 - Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine 03 - Death Sound 04 - Porpoise Mouth 05 - Section 43 06 - Superbird 07 - Sad And Lonely Times 08 - Love 09 - Bass Strings 10 - The Masked Marauder 11 - Grace LINK
Peter and Gordon were a British Invasion-era duo and formed by Peter Asher and Gordon Waller, who achieved fame in 1964 with "A World Without Love", and had several subsequent hits in that era. Peter Asher's sister, actress Jane Asher, dated the Beatles' Paul McCartney, so Peter and Gordon recorded several songs that were solely written by McCartney but credited, as most compositions by either were at the time, to Lennon/McCartney. Those hits included "A World Without Love" (U.S. #1), "Nobody I Know", "I Don't Want To See You Again", and "Woman". "Woman" is credited to "Bernard Webb"; McCartney used this pseudonym to see if he could have a hit song without his name attached to it. The song reached number 14 in the US and number 28 on the British charts. Peter and Gordon also recorded the John Lennon-penned Lennon/McCartney song, "If I Fell." Other hits for the group included "I Go to Pieces" (U.S. #7), which was written by Del Shannon and given to the duo after the two acts toured together, and remakes of "True Love Ways" by Buddy Holly and "To Know Him Is To Love Him", by the Teddy Bears, retitled "To Know You Is To Love You." Peter and Gordon had their last hits in 1967, with "Lady Godiva" (US #6), "Knight In Rusty Armour" and "Sunday for Tea." I Go To Pieces from 1965, is the third release of the duo. 01 - I Go To Pieces 02 - Sleepless Nights 03 - Tears Don't Stop 04 - If You Wish 05 - All Shook Up 06 - Watcha Gonna Do About It 07 - Good Morning Blues 08 - Someone Ain't Right 09 - A Mess Of Blues 10 - I Don't Care What They Say LINK
