The Outsiders...STILL alive but just barely!

"This CD proves that record companies will put out anything... and dumb people will buy anything. Sounds like every bad reunion of a one-hit oldies band playing in a casino lounge: You can just smell the old spice and toupee glue! They kick it off with their one true hit and its all downhill from there, even to the point of playing MOTOWN covers! Absolutely pathetic."
Another Clone band putting out an album

"The outsiders were a great band. Mostly because of the great singing of the leader Sonny Geraci. (later of Climax) He is NOT on this album automatically negating it. The fact that they play Precious and Few (A CLIMAX SONG NO LESS) is only attributed to the fact that Walt Nims (songwriter of the song) is in the band for this concert.
This is an awful attempt to cash in on a 4 hit wonder's earlier successes. Buy the best of or buy a Sonny Geraci live album (on his website www.sonnygeraci.com) at least then the SINGER of the hit songs is singing the songs HE made famous with HIS voice."
Outisiders - '30 Years Later' (Collectables)
Mike Reed | USA | 11/05/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)
"A rare 1991 reunion gig archived for your listening pleasure - one of just two performances the Outsiders played, in Cleveland and Las Vegas. One original member present - guitarist Tom King and one old member (he was with them in 1967) guitarist & vocalist Walter Nims. To me, this fifteen track CD reminds me of many 'oldie' bands I saw on the touring circuit back in the '80's to '90's before everything went corporate - before most oldies bands started over-charging for their gigs at casinos instead of playing low dough concerts of even freebies at holiday festivals and / or fancy shopping centers. Tunes I liked best were their hit "Time Won't Let Me", "Respectable", the Climax band 1972 smash "Precious And Few", "Was it Really Real" (the original B-side to the "Time Won't Let Me" 7" single), their inspiring Temptations cover "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "Some Kind of Wonderful" and the semi-memorable "Lost In The World" (the band's serious attempt to repeat "Time's" formula - you'll see what I mean). Rest of the line up: Eddie Soto-lead vocals, Ted Sikora-guitar & vocals, Rob Mitchell-bass & vocals and Dan King-drums. Think I like the Dutch psychedelic band the Outsiders better, didn't realize this U.S. Outsiders were so soulful. Still, a decent pick. Sound quality is great."
