Format: Audio CD
Distant Shores evokes the golden era of harmony in 60s pop. Strangely ignored in the UK, Chad and Jeremy were better known in the US, where they appeared in an episode of the Dick Van Dyke Show in 1966-1967 entitled "The Redcoats are Coming!" Their songs transported the listener to distant shores. There was magic in their harmony that was appreciated in many countries, from Argentina to Sweden. When your Love has Gone is a wistful, sad ballad of love won and lost. Homeward Bound is a worthy rendering of a Simon and Garfunkel hit, while The Way You Look Tonight brings a 30s classic from Top Hat the movie bang up to date (at least for the 60s). Chad and Jeremy always put passion into their songs, to the extent that the Mamas and Papas must surely have tuned into their music at some stage -- the harmonies of both groups were top-notch and not dissimilar. Ballads were Chad and Jeremy's forte, however, and Morning, You are She and I won't Cry are perfect examples of their expertise in this area. Don't Make Me Do It is the weakest link, with Chad and Jeremy trying to establish their rock and roll credentials but failing miserably: even in 1967 it sounded dated. The Beatles had moved on to Strawberry Fields Forever. The bonus of previously unreleased tracks is an extra treat for the C and J enthusiast, as are the French versions of Distant Shores and You are She, evidence of their popularity across the Channel (at a time Francoise Hardy was churning out unforgettable ballads of her own -- in English!) Believe it or not, there are C and J enthusiasts in England who, trying to convince their friends of the excellence of a duo virtually unknown in Britain, will put on an old Distant Shores 33 1/3 LP to convince them of their huge talent. "Made in Argentina", and hardly a scratch on it -- like the Beatles, Chad and Jeremy live forever.

Textbook example on how to reissue an LP on CD 13 Jan. 2001
By ehfc@worldnet.att.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sundazed has done it again. Easily the best reissue label in America (and that includes Rhino, who put out loads of crass product), they've put together an awesome CD here. Chad & Jeremy were one of the best of the British Invasion acts. Surprising? Not really, when you consider the quality of their music. I saw the duo in concert in the mid-80s at one of those "British Invasion Revival" tours, and Chad & Jeremy were far and away the best act on the bill. Pick up this CD.

FANTASTIC! BUY IT NOW 7 Jun. 2004
By Trevor William Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Probably the best compilation of C&J. From the first track - Distant Shores the quality of the album just gets better and better. We all remember the duo's appearance on Batman 'The Cat's Meow'/'The Bat's Kow Tow' Just as you get to enjoy 'Distant Shores' Catwoman steals their voices! Also there was an edited version of 'Teenage Failure' during the closing scenes of part two. You can now hear the full versions of both songs! There is even a French version of 'Distant Shores' and 'You Are She'. Other great tracks are 'Early Mornin' Rain' which is quite different from the Elvis version. 'Sixpence' is also enjoyable.
sunstroked by sundaze 24 Jan. 2009
By Mark L. Mckenzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a charming combination of great songs and smooth vocals. Distant Shores is one of the most romantic songs and Chad and Jeremy nail it.After their first two American albums , a slight mis-step in Before and After (too many covers). But this album sets the table for where they were going with inventive arrangements and pristine harmonies. With a wonderful selection of bonus cuts , how can one go wrong ??? Buy it for the person you wish to share it with forever :)
Nostalgic time capsule 17 Jan. 2011
By George H. Currie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm a biased reviewer on this one. This album was one of the first I ever purchased as a teen in the 60s, and was one of my favorites. Easy and nostalgic listening. It will bring back quiet memories of romance, relationships and dreams in a different time and place - a bit of a time capsule. Not unlike Simon and Garfunkle, and Peter and Gordon, although a bit more mellow perhaps.
