CD Reviews

Essential
B. Wayne | nyc, ny | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"if, like me , you realize how the 60's were like no other time, and the window has closed, this is an album full of songs that opens that window on the best era of music to come along scince the classical time. the yardbirds defined a type/style of the time. blues, rock, and psychedelic swirling around in one grand mix to create a unique stew. jeff beck shines on this album, as does the entire group. if at first listen, it sounds dated, give it a little time. it's raw and full simultaneously. if you are into the 60's, this is essential."
UP THERE WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST....
Syd | Chicago | 01/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pick any of the Best of the Best ever. I mean the all time greats: Court of the Crimson King, Dark Side Moon, Quadrophenia, Exile on Main St, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Days of Future Past, Freak Out, Safe as Milk, Spirit #1, Pet Sounds, Village Green Preservation, Aqualung, Velvet Underground and Nico. Eric Dolphy Out to Lunch, whatever... This one is up there with any of them. Amazingly, for a band basically known for their singles, there is not one hit single on this whole album, yet any one of these tracks could have been one, it's that tightly put together. Wow!"
When Will It End?
John P Bernat | Kingsport, TN USA | 06/30/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This great track on this compilation, surprisingly hard to find in something resembling the version that got a lot of airplay in the 1960s, features a strong backbeat, driving rhythms and a consistent message. If you feel down, play this and feel better.

Well, yes, it's admittedly shallow, sexist and juvenile. Joni Mitchell it ain't. But for sheer playability and youthful joy, what was its equal?

"I'm not searching for a reason to enjoy myself, it seems it's better done, than argued with somebody else."

When will it end? Hopefully never."
