The Early Years Part 2

Here are five more of the songs that I first posted back in the early days of 27 Leggies, for those of you who missed them first time round (i.e. everyone).

Today's selection were all recorded in the period 1967 - 72. We have some garage/beat from Massachusetts and the Netherlands, some funky sounds from Virginia and Nigeria, and some kick-ass hippy nonsense from Notting Hill.

"Romeo And Juliet" - Michael & the Messengers (1967)

"Lady Sex" - Eddy Dyan & The Saints (1970)

"Peacock" - Little Wink & Eddie's 25th Century Band (1972)

"James Brown Ride On" - Orlando Julius & The Afro Sounders (1970)

"Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Gauranga" - Quintessence (1970)

The Quintessence track is not the studio version from their self-titled album but a greatly superior live version released by Island on the "Bumpers" sampler. Here is more of the lads in action.
