Good and dirty music from a 1960's rock band

"A warning sticker about the lyrics should be included on the packaging of this C.D. The Raiders do use the "F" word in "Louie, Louie." "Crisco Party" depicts an orgy. "Over You" is about murdering a woman who rejects a man. And the classic "Hungry" has previously censored lyrics, about getting stoned, restored. Yet, The Raiders also sang "Kicks won't bring you peace of mind." It's hard to figure!. These guys make The Rolling Stones sound like choir boys.Musically, The Raiders play as well, if not better, than any other 1960's rock band (Except on Stepping Stone - It's not quite as powerfull as The Monkees in concert version from 1967). The disc features good sound and linear notes. Also, (almost forgot) - their great mid-sixties hits are also on this collection."

"Yes, I grew up in the 60's and loved the garage rock sound from a number of bands. I started listening to Paul Revere & the Raiders after hearing "Just Like Me" sometime back in 1965. This collection is great because 1) It contains all the hits up until "Him Or Me" 2) Strong album tracks like "Louise" and "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone" are included 3) You get the 5 minute plus version of "Great Airplane Strike" 4) You get the uncensored version of "Hungry" 5) Two songs sung by Fang are included. Throw in a few songs previously not on any PR&R album, and there you have it - you have the Essential Ride. Now, we need a follow-up, an Essential Ride II with all the other hits, starting with "I Had a Dream" along with some more album tracks. By the way, the version of "Louie, Go Home" included here is the one that appears on the "Midnight Ride" album. Even if you have the 2 CD Anthology, you may find a place in your collection for The Essential Ride as well."

"What a brilliant american group very listenable and very poppy,the songs featured are altenative versions or unreleased all their major hits are on here well the ones that made the hot 100 in america at the time. England never welcomed them in the charts and they never sold here really either such a shame that a lot of people missed out on their stuff at the time the compilation comes with a very very informative book lots of wonderful pictures and passing words from the group members themselves you would be a fool not to buy this wonderful collection."
