Back Cover Notes:

Beat Beat Beat was a German music programmer that ran during the sixties. Not to be confused with the other well known German pop programme Beat Club, Beat Beat Beat was broadcast out of Frankfurt commencing in 1966. The programme ran to 26 episodes between its launch in 1966 and the final programme in January 1969, all of which are still in the German television archives. The shows were eclectic affairs and included performances by artists as diverse as Eric Burdon and the New Animals, The Move, Cat Stevens and Barry Ryan to name just a few.

Sixth in the Beat Beat Beat Series of releases is devoted to that most British of bands led by the brothers Ray and Dave Davies. The band is of course The Kinks. Captured at the height of their sixties fame and taped in November 1965 the band perform five songs including their massive worldwide hit You Really Got Me. Other songs performed here include I'm A Lover Not A Fighter and A Well Respected Man.
