- Let Me Tell You: Singles and Outtakes
- Artist: Firebeats, Inc
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 1/29/2016
Vinyl LP pressing. Experience the rough-edged sound of Scandinavian freakbeat pioneers Firebeats, Inc. Their legendary 1966 self-titled album has already been reissued by Round 2, but we just couldn't stop there. This record is a compilation of Firebeats, Inc.'s ‘60s singles output, collecting every A and B-side from the era. The songs are mainly group originals written by band leader Yngve Bjerke, but they also did some amazing cover-versions; Johnny Rivers' ‘Secret Agent Man’ gets a Norwegian makeover (‘Hemmelig Agent’) and the band tackle the grandiosity of ‘Be My Baby’ as made famous by The Ronettes. Side Two features newly discovered rehearsal recordings containing cover-versions recorded by the band themselves onto ¼ inch tape. Step into the time machine and take a trip to 1960's Oslo. Music remastered from original tapes. New extensive liner notes, cover- / label-scans, and original 50×70 cm promo poster!
