Simla Beat 70

Simla Beat 70

This is about as obscure as garage rock gets. For two years, 1970 and
1971, a cigarette company in India sponsored a battle-of-the-bands
competition, with the winners going to Calcutta to record for
compilations called Simla Beat.
Each year an album was released with no info about the bands other
than their hometown. Also issued was this 45 with two of the better
tracks and some silly liner notes on the back of the sleeve.
