CD Reviews

A Good CD
BOB JOHNSON | Rooster Poot , Oklahoma | 12/01/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very good cd. The Gants albums were pretty hard to find and when you found one, then you paid well for it. Then you had to put up with pops and scratches.This cd has a "GREAT SOUND" to it.If you are a Gants fan then you know the history of all the cover songs, and the history is true. Liberty Records squeezed the Gants dry in a very short time. The best songs on the cd is "Road Runner", "Crackin' Up", "I Wonder", "I Don't Want To See Her Again", "Little Boy Sad", "Greener Days", "Six Days In May" and "My Baby Don't Care".You get most all of the songs the Gants ever did on this one cd. There are 30 songs and the Gants only had 3 albums.I saw the Gants in person in Memphis (I think it was 1968) for a benifit for Otis Redding. I remember they did "Hey Jude" and what a great job they did on it. I had to look real hard to make sure it wasn't Paul McCartney. They could sure sound like the Beatles, they had a great sound. They played in Greenwood, Mississippi this summer at the Air Show. Maybe they will be back there next year.This cd is a Gants fan's dream come true. 30 songs, all the hits and all the covers and a great quality sound."
GREAT GANTS

"i AM FROM THE MISS. DELTA AREA AND GREW UP LISTING TO THE BEATLES AND OTHER BANDS OF THE `ENGLISH MUSIC INVASION OF THE MID TO LATE 60`S THE GANTS I WONDER ALBUM IS THE BEST KEPT SECRET ANSWER TO THE BEATLES THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD. THEY ARE THE SOUTH`S ANSWER TO THE BRITISH INVASION, THEY ARE STILL PERFORMING AND RECORDING. THE SONGS ON THIS ALBUM ARE VERY SELECTIVE, STYLISH AND INCOMPASS A WIDE VARIETY OF MUSIC. THIS IS ONE FOR EVERYBODYS COLLECTION FOR THE KIDS NOW AND THE BABY BOOMERS! THIS MUSIC IS 35 YEARS OLD AND IS AS GOOD NOW AS IT WAS THEN TO LISTEN TO! GREAT GANTS - GET ONE"
Very good unknown forgotten pop

"The Gants are one of these forgotten 60's bands that makes you wonder why they didn't make it in a big way, like the Remains or the Knickerbockers. They had a good songwriter, played tight and fine, still they didn't acheive anything or almost : their only minor hit was Bo Diddley's "Roadrunner", #46... They're Beatles fans and you can hear that in "I Wonder", half a rip-off of "In My Life" but still a great great song !I'm not from Mississipi but I think they're great anyway !"
