I bought the first Le Beat Bespoké LP and was instantly in love with the selections, the quality is fab! I have since bought each one in the series, really great value!

I got the Action DVD as a Christmas Present and was very happy as they are my Number 1 band from that Mod period!

I cannot get along to The Mousetrap Club Party in London, but I can get the Mousetrap double-side Single for my Collection, I think they are very good records.

“DJ Dr Robert’s compilations are introduction for many to the sights and sounds that have been fuelling the dance floors of happenings like Mousetrap, Crossfire and the annual Le Beat Bespoké festival. Where infamous compilations such as Pebbles, Back From The Grave and Rubble have focused on the lost treasures from the vaults of fanatical collectors, Le Beat Bespoké differs in that it is made by a DJ with the intention of delivering an LP that will keep your feet moving from start to finish. For those familiar with the club nights it’s a flashback to evenings spent enjoying the tunes and for the uninitiated, it’s an invitation to experience what lies inside those legendary London haunts that have become so important to so many!”

“More influential than the Chocolate Soup series!”

“If you've ever attended a European mod rally or '60s garage festival, chances are you're familiar with Rob Bailey, main man behind the New Untouchables. Bailey's DJ sets are the stuff of legend; he has the knack of consistently digging up new obscurities and turning them into dance floor smashes. You could spend a lifetime, not to mention your life-savings, tracking down these records, or you could take the easy route and pick up Le Beat Bespoké!”
'Best Bespoke: 25 Tailor Made Cuts' (Discotheque) Various Artists1 Dec. 2011
By Mike Reed - P
Format: Audio CD
Twenty-five tracks by never-heard-of super-obscure bands of the psychedelic, garage rock and pop genres.
mean - most (if not all) bands and artists featured on this 'Beat Bespoke' CD are unknown to even collectors
of rare '60's psych and garage. Tunes that did the most for me include Gerrard with "Sexologie",
Daisy Clan, Flash & The Dynamic's catchy "Glory Be", the Three Dog Night-like song "Hip Hip Hooray"
by Anderson And Shot, Ola & The Janglers with their two cuts on this title, the awesome Lionceaux
giving us "Nowhere To Run" and Fardon & Kieswetter's inspiring "I'm Alive"
(didn't Tommy James & The Shondells record this song on an LP of theirs?).
Yes, a nice collection of the better tunes you've NEVER before heard.
Also like the Strangers cover of the Monkees hit "Mary Mary". Highly recommended.
