A strange mix

"Some of these songs sound like they came from different eras, some good, some great, some bad. Scott's voice is incredibly beautiful, John has a terrific rock sound, and together they make a marvelous blend, but songs like "Tell the Truth" and "The Seventh Dawn" shouldn't have seen the light of day, and "But I Do" doesn't fare much better. The worst part comes when the lovely "Young Man Cried" with it's wonderful moving lyrics, is followed by the dreadful "Everything's Gonna be Alright"...it's a shock to the senses.Released in 1965, and despite some exquisite songs, this one's for Walker Brother collectors only...get their 1966 recording "Portrait" instead, which is fabulous, and released on CD with 12 bonus tracks. It's a classic that will always be a joy to listen to."
New to Walkers -- and lovin' them!

"I have only heard the Walker Brothers' singles in passing. I was happily surprised by how strong this album is. I enjoyed it all the way through. Reminds me of Phil Spector productions, which makes sense, since the Walkers came after Spector's Righteous Bros. productions. Highly recommended."
