Some of the best stuff from this era

"Wow! I had been somewhat disappointed with other reissued material from the 'Collectibles' label, but this one really stands out. The first 6 cuts feature Detroit's Unrelated Segments material from the late 60's (a few of which were previously unreleased) when bands were bridging the gap between post flower power psychedelic pop into a tougher hard rock sound. You'll hear pre-echoes of early MC5 in here and sometimes a more r&b-influenced sound like the Shadows of Knight. Tracks 7-12 feature a different Detroit band (The Tidal Waves) that sounds somewhat earlier historically (a year or so) with a more naive (restrained?) sound like the earlier bands of the era (Buckinghams, Paul Revere & The Raiders). Neil Young would resurrect one of the best songs some 30 years later ("Farmer John")and "Big Boy Pete" sounds suspiciously like the Kingsmen's "Jolly Green Giant". The real fun comes in the last 9 tracks, though, where the Unrelated Segments return a couple of years later with some lineup changes and a muscular pre-metal sound not unlike Grand Funk (with better vocals) or SRC. These tracks alone are worth the price of the disc (check out "Wait" and "Easy Money"). I've got the guys at work addicted to it, so go get one of your own and rock out!!"

"Being curious, I searched the internet for a band that my friends and I loved 36 years ago, the "Unrelated Segments." Much to my surprise and delight I found that I can buy their music here! I really love their music. I listened to all the samples of their songs and I really enjoyed hearing them again after such a long time! The songs on this cd are absolutely great, and I am looking forward to owning a copy of it."
