Long Overdue
John Devlin | Elgin, SC United States | 12/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After years of waiting for a CD re-issue, it is finally here. Roll Over is a perfect album, one that came at a perfect time in rock history. It stood in stark contrast to the bombast of the era (early 70s). It was (and still is) fresh, inventive pop that, to my mind, presaged the New Wave that was to come later in the decade. A true, obscure classic."

"I first heard the New York Rock Ensamble at the Goose Lake Pop Festival in 1970. They should have been one of the featured acts. I bought their album when I got home and wore it out several times over the years from frequently playing it. Their album "Roll Over" captured well the power of their live performance. There is a mystical quality to their lyrics and melodies that had their origins in psychedelic inspiration. This recording is long overdue in CD. It's simply one of the best rock and roll recordings every made."

"While I have not yet received the CD release, I wore out my old vinyl copy of this disk (Roll Over) years ago. I was very excited to see that it will soon be available through Amazon on CD. This recording is a remarkable achievement in rock and roll experimentation that actually worked. Fans of bands like Cream, the Doors and (if you can believe this...) Procal Harum will appreciate the combination of driving rock and sophisticated arrangements. One song in particualar, "Gravedigger" is dark and very disturbing, but it is alluring all the same. The rest of the recording is full of very consumable tunes that should have received some air play in the Golden days of FM radio. If you're a fan of rock... give this CD a listen. I've never played it for anyone that didn't like it."
