CD Reviews

A mellow stroll down memory lane!!!
Srinidhi Anantharamiah | 08/23/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a lover of music from the 60's and 70's, I found this CD to be a lasting tribute to those artists whose musical talents unfortunately did not take them to the recognition beyond the single hits they will always be remembered for. Who can ever forget the 60's without remembering the summer of love's classic "Reach out in the Darkness," or the 70's without the summertime masterpiece "Montego Bay?" Artists such as Friend and Lover and Booby Bloom might not be household names, but the musical hits that they performed should bring back pleasant memories to the children of that era.I highly recommend this CD to lovers of soft rock. The music contained here is soothing, relaxing, and will be a pleasant trip down memory lane to many."
"Tin Soldier" is NOT the hit version.
M. Doane | Boston, MA United States | 01/23/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The earlier reviewer was correct in noting that the version of "Tin Soldier" here is NOT the original hit version. The hit version was originally released on Warner Brothers 7509 (45 RPM Record) in 1971 and reissued by Warner Brothers 0101 (45 RPM Record) at the very end of 1973. The version here is a new and different recording which was released on MGM 14308 earlier in 1973."
Not Coven's original
Jonathan W. Schult | Mass. Park, NY | 02/24/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but the version of "One Tin Soldier" by Coven on this CD is not their original. The original Coven version was on Warner Brothers and charted in 1971 to # 26 on the Hot 100. This CD's version was a re-record (although arranged and conducted by the same person, Mundell Lowe) and released on MGM Records, and charted almost two full years later, to # 79. Five months later, the Warner single re-charted to # 73. Further, the Coven version (both, actually) are better and more impassioned than the Original Caste version, which suffers from an overstatement of "mellow". The Warner's version of "One Tin Soldier" is available on volume 7 of Rhino's "Have A Nice Day: Super Hits of the 70s""
