Scottish Sounds

'Scottish Sounds' was a promotional brochure for Scottish beat groups, chiefly from the central region.

It was published by James F Nicol of Stardust Enterprises of 129 Chalmers Street Dunfermline in 1964 and cost 2/- or two shillings.

It was intended to bring our local Scottish talent to the attention of chiefs of Record Companies, Agents, Promoters and the loyal fans of these groups.

I believe it is presented here exclusively for the very first time ever on-line.

It features the following 22 groups and artistes 14 of which played at the Kinema and are therefore featured in my Biogz pages.

Hope you enjoy the nostalgia!
