Various Artists - Wyld Beests And Weirdos (6CD Box Set)

Regular price £30.00 Sale

Here we are then, in a nutshell, clamshell, box or whatever….the biggest sounds in one little box, fuelled with high explosive R&B punk, and loud, adrenalin-driven mayhem. Wyld beests? Weirdos? Who knows…but this is the most definitive and authentic account of the British R&B beat boom that you’re gonna get to hear in your life!

Comprising over 170 tracks featuring previously unreleased recordings, scarce export-only releases and insanely rare UK 45s, Wyld Beests And Weirdos captures the essence of that British R&B/Beat boom at its height. Combined with rare and obscure recordings from the 1963-1967 period, this landmark edition boasts a plethora of original artefacts, comprehensive liners, interviews, anecdotes and rare photos in a 96 page full colour booklet. Packed with vitriol, adrenaline and laced with crazed teenage dementia…..

Wyld Beests And Weirdos is the full measure of the primal force in 60s British R&B, beat punk.
