5.0 out of 5 stars Christie, What A Gem This Is..Fantastic!!! 3 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Going back to the early 70's what great memories i have for this era. Just bought this CD and i have to say i love every track.
Most people who remember Christie will automatically think of Yellow River which was his number one hit, rightly so it is a classic.
Jeff Christie who is from the UK and was born in Leeds is very under rated in my opinion. i think he's more versatile music wise than many people think.
When he wrote Yellow River it was offered to The Tremeloes who did record it as a single but then changed their minds about releasing it. Bet they regreted it at the time.
In the end Christie used the track themselves and the rest is history, a No.1 hit and it sold 3 million world wide.
Going back to the CD Christie also charted with his follow up single San Bernadino another favourite of mine which got to No.7 which is also on here.
This is one of the best CDs i have bought in a long time every track has it's own merits and all are fantastic in my opinion. New York City, Inside Looking Out and Down The Mississippi Line really got me rocking along..FANTASTIC!!
A great addition to the disc is the Bonus Tracks which includes Iron Horse and Fools Gold which are awesome and very welcome.
To sum up i can't fault the disc which is why i give it 5 Stars and the sound quality is amazing.
If anyone is thinking about buying this CD and you like the 70's, all i can say is do it now. These are Great Tracks and they will have you singing and Rocking along.

Just one more thing, There are 21 tracks on the disc and not 22 as listed.
The CD starts with Yellow River and finishes with the rocker Born To Lose..Absolutely Brilliant!!
A worthy addition to any collection.

This is my first Review so i hope my imput helps, but i know everybody's tastes are different..Just Enjoy!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yellow is the colour 16 Nov 2005
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Beautifully packaged and presented, not least for the generous helping of bonus tracks, this is an album you can enjoy if you're prepared to ignore the question of what is cool. Frontman Jeff Christie had already recorded as a member of The Epics and The Outer Limits, two obscure pop bands of the late 1960s. With Christie he attempted to make music with a rougher edge, but it's evident from this album that he could never stray far from his pop tendencies. The result is a collection of memorable tracks that have a touch of grittiness without ever being convincing as rock songs. Just to confuse matters, many of the songs are taken at a simple country-styled tempo while employing rock-styled guitar.
Their biggest hit, "Yellow River", is a typical example. The memorable guitar intro suggests a rock song which is then belied by a more down home rhythm. The decision to write mock Americana is another complication. Ultimately, this English band make music that isn't authentic or fully committed to any genre but works on a simple level. Then again, if an Englishman can find fame with a song about Amarillo, why can't Christie do the same with "San Bernardino"? This is a lovely song, though it suffers from a weak production.
There are highlights among the non-singles too, the prowling guitar of "Country Boy" for instance, but this is an album of minor fluctuations in what is sustained quality. Only the production, which often holds back the rhythm, is suspect. For lovers of pop without prejudice, this is a good value album.

4.0 out of 5 stars for me it's a long lost 70's sound.... 4 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
Finding Christie is like finding my childhood,back in the early 70's. I knew Christie from my dad's Top of The Pops audio cassettes. It's really a long journey for me to find it. Name it, "Yellow River" and the ultimate one (for me), "Iron Horse". All are written by the man of the band, Jeff Christie (vocal & bass). I also found another hit that I missed the tittle for long time, "Every Now and Then" (written by guitarist Vic Elmes)
I'd like to give it 5 stars, since I love this compilation. But for the sound, it reduced to 4. Although for me it's OK since it's made in 70's audio technologies. I don't know what/how many track recording they used, but I found it sound like mono. I'm not audio expert so I maybe wrong, but I can tell if my ear can enjoy or not.
Before reading the brochure inside, I thought they're American band,(like Grandfunk Railroad? haha). People can tell it from their music (sometimes blues, sometimes country) and songs tittles (New York? Mississipi? San Bernardino?). But no, they come from UK. Well, you got me, Christie....

By David

Apart from Yellow River and St Bernadino their material is very unusual. I'm getting used to listening to Iron Horse, Country Boy,, I've got a feeling and a few others. A album of Christie I like but not on a compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple driving rock music 20 Aug 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Christie's style of music was simple, high-energy rock with country influences. Jeff Christie was their main songwriter and lead singer. They made it to number one in the UK charts with Yellow river in 1970 although it was quickly knocked off the top my Mungo Jerry's classic In the summertime. Following that success, their next single, San Bernadino, became a top ten UK hit. Any hopes that they might have a string of hits after that were quickly dispelled as they only had one other UK hit - Iron horse, which only briefly crept in at the bottom of the charts. I get the impression that Christie were more successful in Germany, where their music has been easier to find on CD's.
In the seventies, pop and rock music became ever more complex so the simple sounds of Christie soon went out of fashion. Nevertheless, their music is highly entertaining and worthy of a place in any collection of rock oldies.
