This is one of the real rare 60s albums, marked with 4 stars in Pokoras 1001 Rare Record Cover Book & gets mentioned in Ugly Things '20 Little-Known Albums That Need To Be Reissued Section'. Excellent sample of the British Invasion & the very early American garage/teenbeat sounds. (

The Nomadds was originally released by Radex in 1965. They enjoyed quite a local following in Freeport and were Northwestern Illinois’ most popular teenbeat group bar none. The band is closer in spirit to early British Invasion records like Meet The Beatles or Gerry and the Pacemakers from their giddy 1963/1964 prime. The Nomadds cut their teeth playing the bars and teen clubs of Illinois which would explain the accomplished nature of their performances. This album recorded in 1965 on the peak of the British Invasion & is a true example of US Teensound Excellent Mersey Type group. The song arrangements are articulate and take interesting detours that most teenbeat/garage groups couldn’t handle. These Sharp Kids looked to Merseybeat rather than Mick Jagger for inspiration. Excellent lead vocals, plaintive three-part harmonies and stripped down, slightly reverbed instrumentation. Amazing in its Beatle-like classiness and talent. Mid-Sixties garage beat album. Very UK Beat influenced with a big flavour of Everly Brothers. Nice clean harmonies and guitar picking. Beautiful masterpiece by these lads from Freeport, Illinois USA, originaly released in April 1965. This is teenbeat at it’s finest. (extracted from &
