Reviewed on 8/10/2009...
admittedly, the 3 best tracks on this cd, are the 3 biggest US hits, Baby Now That I Found, Build Me Up, and Bad Bad old days. I actually ordered this because of the last song Bad Bad Old Days. You would think the rest of the disc would be filler, but it actually has some real strong cuts on it. I was genuinely surprised. I thought if nothing else, I would have the 2 major and 1 minor its together, and would probably not listen to the rest of it. The stronger songs seem to be in the middle to the end of the cd, and it appears to be chronological. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Baby Now that I found you, or the Rascals or Box Tops. Worth the credit, at least, I would probably even buy it

"...I always knew their two big hits, Baby Now that I've Found You and Build Me Up Buttercup from the radio and I decided to take the plunge into the group's other music. What I discovered is that though the hits are good, they are not the best songs on this realy good cd. In the Bad Bad Old Days, Born to Live Born to Die, Baby I Couln't See, Take A Girl Like You, My Little Chicadee, Something For My Baby and especialy the ridiculously catchy Stoney Ground are all more than enough to convince any listener that this group is wildly underated. A must have sixties classic."

"Agree that the collection is a good representation of The Foundations but it is misleading. First of all because Colin Young, previously known as the lead singer of 'Joey Young and the Tonicks'in 1965-66,replaced Clem Curtis in The Foundations in 1968. Secondly, because their greatest hit, Build Me Up Buttercup, featured Colin Young as the lead singer, not Clem Curtis so to write that the group 'fell off a cliff'when Clem Curtis was replaced by Colin Young does not make sense!!"
