Loot - Singles A's & B's lp (Radioactive, UK)

$15.99

Cool Trogg's-affiliated band that nails the thug/pop/mod thing like few others. Features "Meet Jacqueline," also done by the Troggs (and the Headcoatees!).


Allmusic doesn't really give 'em enough credit, but tells us:
This modestly annotated collection deserves credit for assembling all of the tracks from the Loot's 1966-1969 singles in one place, as well as adding a couple rare cuts from French releases, and a couple from "a Page One demo single that was never officially released." That's a big help to collectors who'd have a hard time tracking down the original singles, but it doesn't change the Loot's status as lesser wannabe Troggs. Most of the 14 tracks here, in fact, sound like somewhat faded Troggs imitations, or, to be more charitable, Troggs LP filler. And, in fact, a couple of the songs here ("Baby Come Closer" and "Meet Jacqueline") were recorded by the Troggs as well (on their 1967 Trogglodynamite album), though as it happened the Loot's versions came out first.
