VA - Hello Everyone: Popsike Sparks From Denmark Street 1968-70

We’ve been utterly charmed by this new offering from Cherry Red's psych imprint Grapefruit, a compilation of songs from the short-lived UK label Spark. It’s a psych-pop whirlwind that jumps from early glam (The Baby's "Heartbreaker") to a pair of trippy Donovan covers by the eternally electric actor/singer Eartha Kitt.

"The best of Spark's impressive roster is now collected on CD for the first time on Hello Everyone: Popsike Sparks From Denmark Street 1968-70, which assembles highly-prized, highly-priced 45s from pre-Rare Bird band Fruit Machine, Gene Latter, post-Sorrows outfit The Eggy, The New Generation (subsequently to become the Sutherland Brothers), the Dennis Wheatley-inspired Icarus and both sides of the magnificent and astonishingly rare single by Sir Ching I (only one stock copy known to exist).  Also included are exquisite Brit popsike singles from Timothy Blue, Just William, both sides of the superb John Carter/Russ Alquist collaboration 'The Laughing Man'/'Midsummer Dreaming' and two sensational offerings from Eartha Kitt during her brief and unlikely immersion in late-Sixties hippy-chick chic." - Cherry Red
