"I was working at the Rice radio station in Houston when the REM version of "Superman" came out, and our walking encyclopedia of 60's music, Stan Ostrum, dug out his original copy of your album. The Clique version became a big hit on our station that year.I wish we'd known you were still in town, we would have loved to have you down for a visit.I woke up this morning with Superman stuck in my head, and checked, and lo and behold its on CD now! This is awesome."
Miss the version "Splash 1"!

"I am an old drummer who played in various garage bands from the sixties and would like to ask anyone out there if they have a good version of "Splash 1". I have both the album and the CD, "The Clique", but really need "Splash 1". to complete my collection. I would be willing to bet the single re-released on CD would sell like crazy. I have a ton of friends who would buy it. This was a great group in the sixties."
This music recalls a more melodious time in rock & roll

"My six year old son likes the song "Sugar on Sunday", and he prefers the Clique's version to the Shondells' version. Some music just stands the test of time, even if people have in the past called it fluff or bubblegum.
Pop and power pop music sure was different from "Whole Lotta Love" and "Court of the Crimson King" that you were hearing on FM radio at the time, but it sure was fun. Hearing it today instantly evokes memories for me of a much simpler time. People say the same thing about 50's pop, too.
Anyhow...favorites on this album are "Sugar on Sunday", "My Darkest Hour" and "Shadow of Your Love". There's a decent rendition of the Brothers Gibb's "Holiday" and the original "Hallelujah"--ultimately a hit for the band Sweathog.
The original "Superman" is a gem...an awesome cover of this song found it's way onto R.E.M.'s "Life's Rich Pageant" in 1986 as an unlisted bonus track.
I'd pay money to see this band reunite."
