Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The Troggs record company released a somewhat succinct package of the band’s easily recognizable hit tunes on November 01, 1996: “Best of the Troggs.” Members of the original band re-recorded them as sometimes occurs in the world of music, especially when management gets recording artists to sign over the rights to their tunes. Still, it’s a good collection. If you have yet to get in on the ground floor of this seminal, British hard-rocking band, one given birth in a UK garage, then you need to zip on over to Amazon.com and pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you; you will be glad you did so please, do it now and enjoy.
