The Rhythm Checkers were an exceptional beat group playing a raw mixture of rhythm and blues and rock and roll with a wild garage attitude. Maybe we can call them the european Sonics.
Formed by musicians native from France,  Germany and Holland with Roland “Bouboule” Bauer (vocal),  the regretted Robby Sterheim (lead guitar) Eddy Van Nelfen (rhythm guitar),  Kurth Horbach (bass) later replaced by Dany Gentner and Norbert Holweck (drums),  they set the stage on fire during their shows in France between the years 1966 and 1967.
It is in Strasbourg where The Rhythm Checkers release their first EP with their powerful composition « Cause i need you » which is a real classic of European garage- rock. Their second EP is a unique document of their stage savageness thanks to these recordings captured live when they opened for Chuck Berry in Paris on February 1967,  it’s amazing how these guys made it live....they make my wig jump listening on record,  I can’t imagine what could I do if I were there!!!!

The eight mythical tracks of their two rare records are present on this LP,  and as bonus,  both sides of their single recorded in 1972 during the reformation of the group under the name of Checkers in the prog pop style of the time.
The record comes with an insert with all the history and never published photos of the band,  both in English and French. Limited release of 500 copies only!


ATTENTION: Covers are dented a bit on the upper left corner - but its a hell cheaper!!!!
