"Pebbles, Volume 6" is a compilation album among the LP's in the Pebbles series. Subtitled The Roots of Mod, Volume 6 is the only album in the Pebbles series that features primarily British music. The "Pebbles, Volume 6" CD is not at all related to this album.

Release Data

The album was released in 1980 by BFD Records (as #BFD-5023) and was kept in print for many years by AIP Records.

Although the "Pebbles, Volume 6" CD has completely different music, most of the tracks on this album were reissued in 1996 on CD by AIP Records as "English Freakbeat, Volume 6". For convenience, information on this CD is also included so that a comparison can be easily made between the tracks on these two highly similar albums.

Omitted Tracks on the English Freakbeat CD

As with the first five volumes of the Pebbles series, AIP Records omitted some tracks on the LP in the reissue of the album as English Freakbeat, Volume 6. In this case, two excellent covers on the LP are not included on the CD: "Leave My Kitten Alone" by the First Gear and the Bo Diddley classic, "Here 'Tis" by the Betterdays. Additionally, "Singing the Blues" by the Rats is omitted, though the Jason Eddie & the Centremen performance of this song is included on the CD in place of their song on the LP.

Notes on the Tracks

The following information was taken primarily from the liner notes on "English Freakbeat, Volume 6". Twink was one of the members of the Fairies, an under-appreciated British rhythm & blues band; Twink would later be one of the founding members of a very different band, the Pink Fairies.

"Leave My Kitten Alone" is a celebrated Beatles rarity that is one of the standout tracks on the first Beatles Anthology collection. This version of the song was released in 1964 and features a young Jimmy Page.

Members of the Cheynes include Mick Fleetwood, co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, as well as Peter Bardens and Phil Sawyer. They released several singles between 1963 and 1965.

The real name of the front man for Jason Eddie and the Centremen is Al Wycherley, the brother of Billy Fury, a pop star in the late 1950's. Their experimental treatment of "Singing the Blues" was released in the U.S. by Capitol Records in June 1966.

The music by Bo and Peep was recorded in 1964, and the band is mainly the Rolling Stones plus others that might have included Gene Pitney and Phil Spector; this is an unexpectedly tuff treatment of the well known ballad.
