Fill Your Head With Rock

I love old sampler albums, I think it stems from my brit pop days when I used to get all my new music from the tapes & cds stuck to the cover of Select & Q magazine...... Anyhoo this one, Fill Your Head With Rock (1970) Double LP, is a cracker with a diverse selection of artists from the CBS label 
Standout tracks for me are - Tired of Waiting by Flock (ace Kinks cover), Dance in the Smoke by Argent (ex Zombie serious organ driven fabness), The Inbetween Man by Amory Kane (dreamy, psychedelic folk).

Amazing sleeve! All our vinyl's currently festering in the shed. I'm sure we have this in amongst the collection. xxx

Some of the Island and Polydor samplers are fab. There's a vinyl man near me knocking them out for crazy prices
