CD Reviews

The Leaves
Mike Reed | 06/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Stomping folk rock. Fun if you like Love's first album or the early Byrds."
The Leaves - 'Are Happening:Best Of' (Sundazed)
Mike Reed | USA | 09/11/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A nice reissue of another nearly forgotten decent garage rock band of the late '60's.Remember "Hey Joe"? Some still may not realize that Hendrix didn't originally pen that track,The Leaves actually did.The Leaves released just two lp's in their short existence,1965-67.Have to say that Sundazed did a pretty good job of assembling this compilation that contains three(3) versions of "Hey Joe".After hearing this disc,you can see that The Leaves simply were more than JUST a one song band.In fact,most of these tracks hold up quite well,I think.Some of the other tunes I thought sort of stood out were "Just A Memory","He Was A Friend Of Mine" and "You Better Move On".Should appeal to fans of Love,Buffalo Springfield,Standells and Beau Brummels."

"The Review by DJ, just below gets it right. If you like mid sixties rock 'n' roll, and the idea of shaking and stirring the Byrds with the Rolling Stones sounds like a good idea, (and it is), then this is for you.

The single version of "Too Many People" is a great record, as is "Hey Joe", needless to say.

DJ is also quite right about their second LP on Capitol.

The Leaves were a good but not a great band. If you're looking for a good CD from a mid sixties group and you've got the Beatles, Kinks, Stones, etc. - give The Leaves a try. You won't be sorry."
