Founded in the late '50s to back the now forgotten Johnny Sandon, this Liverpudlian foursome first played the Star-Club in July 1962, and made their 19 Philips recordings on March 1, 1963. Soon after they signed with PYE and went on to score many pop and folk-rock hits. This, though, is the rawer side of the Searchers. Hard, pounding beat music. All the Philips tracks are on this brand new CD.
