CD Reviews

Troggs - 'Trogglodynamite' (Repertoire)
Mike Reed | USA | 02/26/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Band's second 'actual' album, first came out in 1966. Fourteen track original lp, with eight(8) bonus cuts. Good job on the import CD reissue. Tunes that make the grade are "I Can Only Give You Everything", the ballad "Last Summer", "It's Too Late", "Mona", "Cousin Jane" (wasn't this tune a minor hit somewhere?) and another Chip Taylor gem "Anyway That You Want Me". Straight and to the point, memorable British Invasion rock&roll to grace your music collection. Very nice."
A Mixture of Rockers and Pretty Ballads.
Morten Vindberg | Denmark | 03/03/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The opening track on the Troggs second 1966 album is a cover of Them's "I Can Only Give You Everything", my favourite rocker on the original album, here only beaten by the bonus track "Give it to Me".

"Last Summer" and Oh No" are are pretty ballads in the well-known sparse Troggs arrangements.

"Let Me Tell You Babe" and Reg Presley's "I Want You to Come Into My Life" are two other fine songs, but all in all this is probably the Troggs' weakest 1960's album.

Fortunately there are some great bonus tracks ( 4 singles A's and B's ). The single hit "Any Way That You Want Me" is simply outstanding, and I love the guitar-riff of "Give it to Me". Most of the B-sides are pretty good."
