This eponymous album compiles all of the band’s grand studio recordings and a trio of exuberant live numbers, 14 tracks in all, and twins it with the now reformed band’s 2005 studio album, ‘Ricky-Tick.

…this collection is the first comprehensive look at a great lost UK club band of the
’60s…The first 14 trck on the CD come from the Shakers’ mid-60s heyday with
the remaining ten tracks coming froma 2005 reunion album…For anyone with even a passing appreciation of Alan Bown, Cliff Bennett or Moon’s Train, this Stormsville Shakers collection will not disappoint
All told this is a sumptuous set, and a superb tribute to one of Britain’s finest composers.
