Description

If it wasn't for the recordings on this 60 tracker the whole 20th century musical landscape would be completely different. A large majority of these songs were copied, interpreted and re-titled by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, the Yardbirds et al. A host of haunting recordings from where it all began.
