Synopsis

Album Description
One of Sundazed all-time most-requested albums! Featuring the jack-hammer hit-singles "Just Like Me" and "Steppin' Out", Paul Revere & The Raiders loudly launched their chart-topping career with this fuzz 'n Farfisa-filled rocket, their 2nd longplayer for Columbia Records. Make no mistake: lead vocalist Mark Lindsay wrote the book on growling 60's garage vocals starting with these very tracks, and the entire platter screams with attitude, snarl and snort to spare! Our CD release houses the complete vintage 1965 album, rare stereo tracks, unissued and obscenely rare bonus cuts, an introduction penned by Lindsay himself, commentary from the record's legendary producer Terry Melcher, the original LP liner notes, unseen photos and more! Explosive...and Essential!

CD Reviews

100 % awesome !

"If "Baby, Please Don't Go" isn't the most energized song you've ever heard, I'll take my black Stetson and make a meal out of it. With fabulous Fang doing the vocal and the driving bass line, and Drake with his incredible pulsating guitar work, this one gives me a rush every time I hear it.The guys share in the vocals on this CD. "Steppin' Out" is one of my very favorite Raider songs, with Mark's great voice and a lot of humor ("you been steppin' out with the cobbler !"), "Out of Sight" has Drake in fine form, and he also does Donovan's "Catch the Wind" in a "Byrds" style...Smitty does the funny "I Know", and Paul takes his turn with "New Orleans"..."Night Train" is an instrumental featuring Mark on sax.The bonus tracks are a terrific, previously unissued "Ride Your Pony", an alternate take of "Just Like Me", and best of all, "B.F.D.R.F. Blues"...a sensational track, it sounds like something you might hear in a smoky blues club, with its jazzy sax solo and marvelous vocal by Mark...it's a treat.This was my first and most treasured Raider L.P., way back then when one day I turned on the T.V. and found the "Where the Action Is" show, and thought: "Who ARE these guys...and who's the one with the LEGS !!!" Listening to this CD again, after a long absence, it sounds better than ever...still so innovative, fresh, full of fun and goodness...and that incredible energy...as Mark says in his liner notes for this reissue, "...There's a raw enthusiasm on "Just Like Us" that's hard to duplicate"."
Classic fun!!!!

"If you were one of those kids who ran home from school in order to see "Where the Action Is", then this album is for you! It's Paul Revere and the Raiders just after they first hit it big on the Dick Clark-produced show! You'll recognize their earliest hits along with some great cover songs. (Most people don't realize that many times the guest stars didn't show and when that happened, PRR had to fill in!!) So kick the sand out of your shoes, relax, enjoy the sun and listen to some great rock from the froot-suited guys who really made it fun!"
JUST LIKE US!

"This is truly a 60's Rock album which you just have to love!! It includes their hit singles Steppin Out and Just like Me!! I have always said that the song Just Like Me!! really shows off Mark Lindsay's unbelieveable voice!! The Album also includes the title song from their 1960's tv show Where The Action Is!!!
Every Song on this album is truly a good song to listen to!! This is one of the Raiders top albums!! Tom"
