Medley with Rock & Roll Music


Okay, I'm rather proud of this find. From discogs:

Atomic Forest stand as the only Indian psychedelic/hard rock band that managed to record an album: Obsession '77.

Performed alongside Led Zeppelin when Zeppelin visited Bombay in 1972.

Given the year of the band's breakup, the 1981 copyright date, and the tracklist, I am assuming that the sole discogs entry is a reissue; however, I suppose it could be a delayed original release. I wanted to start somewhere....


I only confirmed a few covers that were included on a more contemporary compilation (some song titles corrected to normal):
