BRIAN POOLE & THE TREMELOES were, famously, the group whom Decca Records signed in January 1962 instead of The Beatles.

Ironically, immediately after The Beatles' breakthrough the following year, Poole & The Trems would jump on the Beat Group bandwagon with a cover of 'Twist & Shout'.

However, this compilation deals with their first year of recording, immediately prior to the Beat Boom and their subsequent adjustment in playing style.

BRIAN POOLE & THE TREMELOES were, famously, the group whom Decca Records signed in January 1962 instead of The Beatles.

Ironically, immediately after The Beatles' breakthrough the following year, Poole & The Trems would jump on the Beat Group bandwagon with a cover of 'Twist & Shout'.

However, this compilation deals with their first year of recording, immediately prior to the Beat Boom and their subsequent adjustment in playing style.

In 1962 they cut three 45rpms, including the near-hits 'Twist Little Sister' and 'Blue'.

They also recorded a rare LP, Big, Big Hits Of '62, a round-up of medleys of some of the biggest hit U.K. records that year (bizarrely, their original LP sleeve didn't feature the group's name on the front cover).

All are anthologised on this unique set, the first time that this body of work has been thus assembled.
