The Mindbenders (originally the backing group for Wayne Fontana) was a 1960s beat group from Manchester, England. They were part of the mid 1960s British Invasion with their chart-toppers "Game of Love" and "A Groovy Kind of Love". Wayne Fontana founded the band in 1963 with Bob Lang, Ric Rothwell, and Eric Stewart. The group was later joined by Grahame Foote. The name of the group was inspired by the title of a 1963 film, starring the British actor Sir Dirk Bogarde, called The Mind Benders. They released a few unsuccessful singles before recording "Um Um Um Um Um Um" in 1964, which was a major hit in Britain and led to a tour with Brenda Lee. They also had a #1 hit in the United States with "Game of Love". After a tour of America and some more unsuccessful singles, Fontana left the band in the middle of a concert in 1965. Stewart became the lead singer of the band, which also dropped 'Wayne Fontana' from its name.

Talk about your mystery groups – despite 20 years of celebrity among psych fans and being on one of the most respected record labels in the world, no one seems to know much about the 5-man outfit known as the Common People. I used to think they were an Eastcoast band because that's what they sound like, but they were managed by Lord Tim Hudson of Seeds & Lollipop Shoppe infamy, and the 1969 album was apparently recorded in L A, so maybe they were westcoast after all. In any event, the LP is an interesting experience, far from perfect but with a bunch of strange twists and turns unusual for a major label artefact.(Choco). John Bartley (Guitar), Michael McCarthy (Bass), Danny Rebinett (Guitar), Danny Rebinett (Vocals), Jerrald Rebinett (Drums), produced by David Axelrod. 01 - Soon There'll Be Thunder 02 - I Have Been Alone 03 - Those Who Love 04 - Go Every Way 05 - Why Must I Be 06 - Take From You 07 - They Didn't Even Go To The Funeral 08 - Feeling 09 - 09 - Girl Said - Know 10 - Land Of A Day 11 - This Life She Is Mine LINK (RS) or LINK (FS)
The Devil's Anvil was a hard rock/psychedelic band based out of New York City in the 1960's. They released on album entitled Hard Rock from the Middle East in 1967 showcasing a mix of 60's hard rock and psychedelic sound with Turkish, Arab vocals and traditional instrumentals. Their middle-eastern acid-rock was unique and bizarrely modern (it predates the British transglobal-dance bands by about 30 years). The fuzzed-out guitar mingled with oud, bouzouki, tamboura, Goblet drum. Instrumental in the band's formation was producer Felix Pappalardi, who helped sign them with Columbia Records. It was in 1966, while hanging out in the Village that he chanced upon a group of Middle Eastern-born or -descended musicians, playing at a coffee house called Feejon. Pappalardi began playing with them, and eventually they became the unofficial house band at Feejon -- the core members of the group, which took the name The Devil's Anvil, were Steve Knight (rhythm guitar, bass, bouzouki), Jerry Satpir (lead guitar, vocals), Elierzer Adoram (accordion), and Kareem Issaq (oud, vocals). Knight and Pappalardi developed a good working relationship, trading the bass and guitar spots during the recording of the group's one album, Hard Rock from the Middle East, which set the stage for their subsequent team-up together in Mountain. Unfortunately for The Devil's Anvil, their album was released during escalating tensions between Israel and neighboring Arab countries and the Six Day War, or the Arab-Israeli War, in 1967. Subsequently, radio stations would not touch the album because of its controversial sound. 01 - Wala Dai 02 - Nahna Ou Diab 03 - Karkadon 04 - Selim Alai 05 - Isme 06 - Besaha 07 - Shisheler 08 - Kley 09 - Hala Laya 10 - Treea Pethya 11 - Misirlou LINK (RS) or LINK (FS)
The Motions from The Hague were one of the bigger groups of the 1960s Dutch beat explosion. They were formed in 1964 from the remnants of Ritchie Clark and the Ricochets and went on to become hitmakers for the next several years. From 1964 till 1967, the line-up remained the same: Rudy Bennett - lead vocals, guitars, Robbie Van Leeuwen - guitars, vocals, Henk Smitskamp - bass, vocals and Sieb Warner - drums, vocals. This line-up had a string of hits in The Netherlands during 1965 and 1966 with singles like "Wasted Words" and "It's The Same Old Song". Their first album, "Introduction To The Motions", is considered one of the best albums of the era. 01 - Love Won't Stop 02 - I've Waited So Long 03 - I'll Follow The Sun 04 - The Girl From New York City 05 - You Bother Me 06 - I Want Someone To Love 07 - It's Gone 08 - No Matter Where You Run 09 - Be The Woman I Need 10 - I've Got Misery 11 - Who'll Save My Soul 12 - For Another Man LINK (RS) or LINK (FS)
