Superlimited split-LP including 5 killer previously unreleased 1967 freakbeat/rnb/garage studio tracks by the legendary New Nadir featuring Ed Carter from San Francisco, California on lead guitar and vocals (pre The Beach Boys); Gary Thain from Christchurch, New Zealand on bass (pre Keef Hartley, and Uriah Heep); plus Peter Dawkins from Timaru, New Zealand on drums (the greatest record producer from down under); coupled with 6 previously unreleased 1966-1967 beat, garage, mod-beat, freakbeat, and r+b cuts from the pre-New Nadir outfit Me And The Others.

If you are into bands like The Creation, and Koobas, then The New Nadir will be something for you. Me And The Others should appeal to anybody into bands the likes of The Pretty Things, Small Faces, etc. Me And The Others' 1966 recording of Love Is Not A Game would have fit perfectly onto the Chocolate Soup For Diabetics series!

The five tracks by The New Nadir on this LP were recorded on Monday, August 28th 1967, at a Swiss recording studio near Zurich, and capture them in great mood at their fantastic first recordings. The songs range from top freakbeat/garage masterpieces (Tomorrow, as well as I Need Her Now), thru unique eastern influenced freakbeat tracks with raga riffs (Black Snow), and onto the pop-art sound of People Are Changing, and the rambling rnb/freakbeat/garage guitar instrumental Walking.

The LP is highlighted by the monster previously unreleased freakbeat track Love Is Not A Game, which was recorded by the pre-New Nadir outfit Me And The Others in November 1966, at Regent Sound Studios in London. This could easily hail as one of the greatest freakbeat tracks which was ever produced in the UK.
