2009 compilation from the Liverpool-based Mersey Beat group who were originally the only real competition for the Beatles during their early days. The first popularity poll for Liverpool groups appeared in Mersey Beat in 1961. The Beatles were top, but as that magazine's contributor, Liverpool's top club DJ, Bob Wooler, pointed out, I excluded The Swinging Blue Jeans (then known as The Bluegenes) as they were beyond comparison and in a class of their own. The Swinging Blue Jeans were the epitome of the Mersey Beat sound and all that great group's best recordings can be found here. This album includes all of their greatest hits and much more besides. Hits include 'The Hippy Hippy Shake', 'Good Golly Miss Molly', 'You're No Good' and 'Don't Make Me Over' as well as 'Shakin' All Over', 'Tutti Fruiti', 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy' and 'Save the Last Dance For Me'.
