The A-Cads ‎ “Hungry For Love” 1966 South Africa Garage Beat/Mod/Garage
full
From Johannesburg/South Africa the A-Cads where one of the best south-african Beat/R&B bands (whatever that means). Compare it to other groups around the world at that time they sound a bit weak to my ears. This CD (Crystal Emporium Productions CEP-012 / 1999) is a re-issue of their album from 1966 plus bonus tracks from guitar player Hank Squires solo efforts. …. 

Superb South African raw garage R&B LP in the Pretty Things vein. Wild versions “ got my Mojo Workin”“ Down the road”… Hard to find in any condition. Some crease and lamination left as usual. Light hairlines scuffs and tiny lines marks. ……
