CD Reviews

Quasi-live 60's garage pop/rock
Robert Schell | Townsville, Texas | 09/19/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This group was from Pennsylvania, I believe, and were a pretty good garage rock/pop group. The singer sounds a lot like Jim Sohns of the Shadows of Knight, but they weren't as bluesy or hard as that group. I'd describe their sound as closer to Paul Revere and the Raiders (whom they cover). The recordings on this c.d. were made for a live performance-- they recorded themselves in the studio, and then played over the tapes at the concert. Although you only hear the original recordings rather than the subsequent live performance, somehow the between-song chatter of the concert remains, which is mainly by a group of d.j.'s from the radio station that hosted the concert. You might find the chatter annoying, but I think it gives the c.d. good period flavor. Most of the songs are covers of well-known pop songs of the period, which are performed reasonably well. There are also a few originals, "Flyte" being the best among them, with nice tempo changes and a good tight arrangement. Overall, this isn't an essential purchase for 60's garage rock fans, but it's a fun enough package for serious collectors."
