Stockholm-based Steampacket was formed in the autumn of 1965. After three gigs in Sweden in the spring of 1966, the band went on touring in England, discovered that there was already a Steampacket which included Rod Stewart, changed its name to The Longboatmen but called themself Steampacket II back in Sweden. The band released eight singles but oddly enough never an LP.

Today, the singles are collectibles and Take Her Any Time still remains one of the 60s best Freakbeat/Garage fuzz tracks ever. Now Steampacket’s gems are coming together for the first time on LP. Studio recordings, live recordings and previously unreleased material with Mikael Ramel. We’ve longed for this!
