"The average Jimmy Page/Zeppelin fan would probably get a decent amount of enjoyment from this compilation CD.Twenty-one cuts of Page's pre-Zep studio session works between 1963-65.I heard in an interview that Page was once available as an around-the-clock studio musician in which many times he stood in for another performer/artist that he never got proper credit for.Good collection of assorted cuts from many different sort of British Invasion and Freakbeat personel.Some of the tracks I remembered being nice to have handy were ex-T.Rex drummer Mickey Finn(R.I.P.)"This Sporting Life",The Primitive's "You Said",pajama scarlet Brenda Lee&Page with "Is It True" and the two Yardbirds cuts in their early version,"Train Kept A Rollin'" and "White Summer".Nice."
