Most folks remember this band solely for the song 'Next Plane to London' that leads off this album, but for fans of California folk-rock, this record has some real gems, not the least of which are the two Gene Clark songs, 'Till Today' and 'Long Time', that Clark wrote for them and were never recorded by anybody else! Then there?s the three tunes contributed by Pat Vegas, co-founder of Redbone, and another song co-written by legendary producer Bob Johnston (Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel); these guys were very definitely in the mix of that oh-so-heady late ?60s SoCal folk-rock scene (they were even managed by Buffalo Springfield?s management team), which guitarist John Noreen expounds upon in Richie Unterberger?s notes. Don?t overlook this one, ?60s rock fans! Also includes 'I?m Only Second; February Sunshine; Coins of Fun; Rider; She Belongs to Me; Flower Tone', and 'Look What You?ve Done'. A 'Collectors? Choice Music' exclusive!

"I guess I am a little biased being that I am the son of the drummer of the Rose Garden who grew up listening to this album..It is great!!! They definitely had that Byrds sound...The 12 string Rickenbacker jangles and the vocals are very warm..Great harmonies!! Hopefully they can get back together sometime for a full flashback tour!!! Go buy the cd!!!
If the Byrds had a female lead singer!

"I found this as an LP at a flea market in the early 80's and loved it. They have the Byrds jangly guitar thing down! Nice harmonies, pretty melodies, and Diana, the lead singer has an engaging singing voice. Gene Clark from the Byrds even gave them 2 songs that are on this album that the Byrds never recorded!"
