CD Reviews

Skip the import
Matthew C. Cook | San Francisco, California | 05/23/2005

"I haven't listened to the import, I assumed it was the same as the original, with the usual added tracks. But apparently it's missing songs. I can't imagine why someone decided to leave these songs off, but I liked the two songs that another reviewer says are missing, so I won't touch this ripoff. The original however, listed at the top, is one of the best albums in rock history. I'm not rich enough to pay the hugely inflated price, but I hope someone has the sense to release all the Cat Mother albums on CD at a more reasonable cost. These are some of the best albums you'll ever hear, five stars aren't enough. I've been told they're not to everyone's taste, but if you keep an open mind, I doubt you'll ever regret buying any and all Cat Mother albums. They are up there with the Beatles and the Doors in quality, though quite different in style(s). Someone please release these, I don't care if you remaster them or not. I'm still listening to the vinyl ones I bought years ago, and loving them."
Cat Mother's Excellence Goes Way Beyond This One

"From day one, way back when, at it's original release, this has been a favorite of mine. Though Rock and Roll was the hit I believe it to be the weakest cut here (I still love it). But their subsequent albums were also magical with Albion Do Wah being my favorite. I want the phone number of the person who is sitting on the rest of their catalog to get then re-released on CD. When I love all of their songs as much as I do I will be very persuasive. If they come out grab them quick, purely delightful and you will be humming the tunes lovingly for the rest of your life. A CM album would make it to the desert island with just a limit of 5 cds/albums. That good."

"I am delighted to see that this recording is once again available. I first heard this album in the late sixties, and songs from it have remained current in my mind since then. This band captured acoustic/electric eclecticism before any other groups really thought about combinig such instruments as fiddle and Hammond organ in a single cut. "How I Spent My Summer" is as sixties' political as anyone might ever want. The final tune on the album is a well played "live" jam. Good old Rock and Roll just makes you want to dance, even if you don't know how. And for you trivia fans out there--the banjoist on this album is the guy who plays at the end of "Bluebird" on Buffalo Springfield's 2nd album (Again). Buy this recording--you won't regret it."
