Incredible Sound Show Stories 09 - Clap Hands Daddy Come Home

In the immortal words of Dig the Fuzz Records: "You have here a collection (gathered together by hideous phone bills, hedaches, loft insulated records and of course the sheer love of it all!!) of stupidly rare and obscure discs from foreign shores featuring lost and long forgotten British bands from the mid to late sixties.
In this latest instalment of the delicious and Incredible Sound Show series, we present 17 god almighty blasts of guitars, organs, drums, harmonicas, and while we're at it general MOD and R&B mayhem from 16 no-hit wonders now back in the land of the Union Jack. CLAP HANDS! DADDY COME HOME!…

My personal comment here: there are a lot of UK bands who felt competition was too hard in the UK and emigrated elsewhere (usually Europe)… easier living to be had. Either that or foreign-only issued 45. These songs literally come from all over the world… Singapore included!
A scorcher of a volume is what we have here… it nearly started a parallel ISSS series. Look for a new volume in the near future.

Meet Daddy here!

Another great volume in the series! There are always a few clunkers from the late '60s/early '70s on these comps, but the vast majority of songs are excellent. Thanks for the posts! Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
