The Rattles from Germany
The Rattles emerged in the Beat Scene in the early 1960’s and crossed paths with Liverpool groups – The Beatles and The Searchers – as well as others. They experienced many personnel changes over the life of the band. The LP below was their only U.S. label solo release. They also appeared on another Mercury Records compilation – “The Searchers Meet The Rattles”.
A very early line-up included Joachim Reichel (guitar), Herbert Hildebrandt (bass), Hans Joachim Kruezfield (guitar) and Deiter Dadlowski (drums).
