Hep Stars Album Pre-Order On Amazon UK

I have just noticed that Amazon UK have a Hep Stars compilation album "Like We Used To : The Anthology" available for pre-order. The album is released on the 23rd March and includes 25 tracks with six live versions - the Amazon description is as follows...

"In the 1960s, The Hep Stars were Swedens biggest band inspiring screams and Beatles-like devotion. For the first time outside Sweden, Like We Used To: The Anthology 1965-1967 collects them at their peak, from being one of the eras wildest bands emphasised on the live tracks to performers of affecting songs with a yearning atmosphere. The bands songwriter Benny Andersson later achieved global fame with ABBA and Like We Used To features classic early compositions, including the first-ever song he wrote. Also collected is a rare early collaboration with his future ABBA companion Bjrn Ulvaeus the first song they wrote together. Tracks are taken direct from the master tapes as they were meant to heard in the Sixties in the original mono. There is no after-the-fact stereo. Exploring the original masters turned up versions of songs either not issued at the time or released in territories beyond Sweden, including three versions intended for, but not used for, English release."
