Doug Yule singing I’m Set Free

Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m fairly certain that’s Doug singing lead vocals on I’m Set Free from Max’s KC. (I believe it’s him on the Freeman sampler as well) Are there any other recordings of Doug taking lead vocals on this song? Related topic: Are there other weird one-offs of Doug taking the l...

Re: La Cave 4th October 1968

Mark, I excitedly downloaded this set a while back but how in the heck do I listen to these Flac files?! I own a mac.

Who knew that a version of “I Can’t Stand It” COULD exist without that crazy 80s snare sound! And you d...
