CD Reviews

A Sonic Masterpiece

"Just as Sgt Pepper was to the Beatles, the album Collage was the artistic peak for PR&R. It was lead singer Mark Lindsay's masterpiece, as it was he who was the mastermind behind this "tour de force". Even the bastion of hipdom & counter-culture at the time, Rolling Stone Magazine, gave this album a glowing review upon it's release in 1970, and praised Lindsay for his efforts. Forget the pop sounding singles that immediately preceded this album : Led Zeppelin & Uriah Heep come to mind, when one spins this CD. Each track has been so exquisitely arranged & executed. Nothing seems out of place. Nothing seems lacking. Brilliant. Simply Brilliant. Definitely number 1 on my "desert isle" classic list."
A Big Move...

""Collage" moves this band from fun pop hits to showing off it's virtues as a strong rock band. The depth of the group comes across in a recording that deserved far more publicity and credit than it got at the time. The album includes a couple of re-makes of previously released songs, showing what a tremendous difference a new arrangement and and different production techniques can make. Other songs on the CD show a variety of styles, from hints of country and ballad in this basically rock album.Mark Lindsay shows off his strength and vocal range with a variety of styles. He wrote, or co-wrote many of the songs, and also produced the album with results that were innovative at the time, and just as exciting to listen to now.It's a true "collage" as one track blends and bleeds in to the next taking you on a very interesting emotional ride!Listening to it now, you can easily get into all of the tracks, as well as see the progression and development of rock music as it was happening at the time.A vibrant and exciting CD, and a "must" to add to your collection -- for any fan of rock music!"
One of the Best Pieces of Music Ever Put on Vinyl

"This is a great album. It far outshines anything Paul Revere and the Raiders ever did before or after. This music has a definite 70's sound but at the same time is timeless in it's content, especially Dr. Fine and the redone Tighter and Just Seventeen. Wednesday's Child is sweet. For the time, this 1970's album has effects that are far advanced. All the cuts were re-mastered in 1970 on this album because Mark Lindsay knew he needed to keep up with the Beatles and the Stones. Raiders Collage moves out of the pop genre and into the rock genre nicely and if Capital Records would have promoted this album half as hard as they did many of their previous albums this one would have gone down as one of the best classic rock album and one of the best pieces of music ever put on vinyl. It is exceptional. Give it a try, listen all the way through, find you mind wandering with the music. This is one you'll listen to over and over. It has a Pink Floyd, Beatles, Three Dog Night flavor to it, all wrapped up into one."
