Great music, but NO remastering, NO notes

"The Youngbloods deserve better than this. This is just the bare minimum for a reissue--NOTHING was done to sonically polish these '60s classics w/digital technology.There are no notes of any kind, either.The great music will carry you through, but, as I said, The Youngbloods deserve the loving attention that the Byrds, Velvet Underground, and the Doors, to name just three, have received in CD reissues."
More Than Just One Hit Wonders

"Agreed, BMG certainly did not provide the care in presenting a remastered reissue, not to mention the total lack of historic liner notes, leaving any first time listner clueless as to the orgins and basic facts of this very underated sixties group. However, at a bargin list price ..., you do get two entire unedited albums and two of their best I might add. The Youngbloods scored a major hit with Get Together in '67, however they never cracked the top fourty again. It wasn't due to a lack of effort nor songwriting talent. Whatever the reasons there are some great songs here including the beautiful Sunlight, Ride The Wind and Quicksand. Like so many other great and talented bands of that era, Buffalo Springfield, The Flying Burito Brothers, Moby Grape and others, they'll most likely be remembered as one hit wonders. Truth be told, they were so much more than just "Get Together". This fine collection is evidence of that."

"I bought this LP when it was first released (1967). Then, it was simply named: "The Youngbloods", (I'm referring to the first 11 tracks) It got lost and I tried for 20 years to find it. RCA said it was out of print. It was renamed and re-released "Get Together" for obvious reasons. Every Note on this LP is a true Gem. This is my ALL TIME most favorite LP. You will not be disappointed. A true footstompin', finger tappin' GEM."
