Not only did this Texan folk-rock trio launch country star Don Williams' career, but they scored six chart hits in their own right, virtually none of which have come out on CD! But all six of those hits appear in our package, which includes both of the Pozo-Seco Singers' original charting Columbia albums, 'Time' (1966) and 'I Can Make It with You' (1967) together with their two non-LP charting singles here as bonus tracks, 'I Believed It All' and 'Louisiana Man', for a total of 24 tracks!

Pozo-Seco Singers/Eric Clapton

"I,too, recall listening and buying Pozo-Seco Singers 45 "Time"
in the San Francisco Bay Area where I grew up. Apparently Pozo-Seco were only a hit in the LA/SF area most likely because of the influence of Drake Radio i.e. KHJ/KFRC.
What is most interesting is that Don Williams,the tenor of Pozo-Seco, went on to become Don Williams, a HUGE Country star and the biggest influence to Eric Clapton since Muddy Waters. Listen, It's true... Clapton in the late 70s early 80's was really Don Williams. "Livin' on Tulsa Time", "Wonderful Tonight":. etc.. Clapton was either Williams or J.J. Cale.
Oh yeah... this is a great 60's era folk album..."
For Those Who DO Care About Hit Singles - They're All Here
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Before Don Williams embarked upon a solo singing career as a Country artist, racking up 56 such hits from 1972 to 1992, he was the lead vocal of a trio from Texas calling themselves The Pozo Seco Singers, and in 1966/67 they put six songs onto the Billboard Pop Hot 100, three of which crossed over to the Adult Contemporary (AC) charts. As one reviewer states, "best of" or "greatest hits" do not interest him very much, but there are those of us out here who DO care about such songs, and although this Collector's Choice release does not advertise it as such, being a gathering together of two of their vinyl albums, with the two bonus tracks added you do get all six hits along with three of the B-sides. In addition to enjoying some of the nicest folk-rock offerings of that era.
Their first was Time, initially released on the tiny Edmark label before being picked up by Columbia in early 1966, and it went to # 3 AC/# 47 Hot 100 b/w Down The Road I Go (not here). The follow-up I'll Be Gone barely made the Hot 100, settling in at # 92 that June, but it went to a reasonable # 34 AC b/w It Ain't Worth The Lonely Road Back. Then, that fall, I Can Make It With You made the Hot 100 Top 40 at # 32 b/w a cover of the David Houston hit, Almost Persuaded. And, in December 1966/January 1967 they reached # 32 Hot 100 again with I Believed It All, but this time it went to # 8 AC as well b/w Excuse Me Dear Martha, which also charted at # 102 Hot 100 "bubble under" (but isn't included here).
Their final hit was a disappointment, as a spirited version of the 1961 Rusty & Doug smash Country hit, Louisiana Man, could only reach # 97 Hot 100 b/w Tomorrow Proper.
Excellent sound quality, as always with a Collector's Choice release, and in lieu of new liner notes they provide those that appeared on the original vinyl LPs. Just make sure you have a magnifying glass at hand to read them, unless you have 20-20 vision. Even then, I think you'll have trouble."
