Simla Beat 70 & 71


Simla Beat 70/71 is a compilation of East Indian garage bands originally released as a promotional item by an Indian tobacco company. In the late '60s / early '70s the Indian cigarette company, Simla, held (or purported to hold) a series of rock'n'roll talent contests, and from these came the albums that are reissued in this 2-CD set. The reissue seems to be pretty much a straight reissue of both albums, with the album art and the original (highly amusing) liner notes reproduced within.
