Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Haunted's leering, Stonesy '1-2-5' is the epitome of garage punk and one of the highlights of the 'Nuggets 2' boxset, but it was their one flash of songwriting brilliance, with the possible exception of 'Searching For My Baby' (an inadvertent ringer for freakbeat legend Thane Russal's 'Security'). However what they lacked in originality they more than made up for with an excellent line in covers. Sure, they plod their way through a few blues and garage band standards like 'I'm A Man', 'Mona' and Them's 'I Can Only Give You Everything' but the French language versions of The Music Machine's 'Talk Talk' ('Pourquoi') and Hendrix's 'Purple Haze' ('Vapeur Mauve') have more than just curiosity value, and the melancholy folk-rock versions of Joe South's 'Untie Me', the Stones' 'Out Of Time' and Love's 'A Message To Pretty' all outshine the originals, which is certainly saying something. This CD is well worth the price for these tracks alone.

This album must be the most delicate Gem ever, killer guitars, wide open harmonica. Man, I love it.
Problem is, it's the Lord Lucan of music.

This is a fine collection of The Haunted's music. 18 Oct. 1998
By S. MacGregor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Haunted was a good mid-1960s Montreal rock band with a straight-forward guitar-rock sound. Their music was mostly original, but there were some fun covers, too. They covered everyone from The Tams ("Untie Me") to The Rolling Stones ("Out of Time"), The Music Machine (performing "Talk Talk" in French and retitling it "Porquoi" - French for "Why"), and Love "A Message to Pretty," to name four of them. A few of their best original tunes are the classic "1-2-5," "Eight O'Clock This Morning," and "Run Down Every Street." There's not really a bad song on the CD, though you may long for feedback during "Vapeur Mauve" - their French version of "Purple Haze." I wish there were more Haunted recordings. These guys could've been big if they'd had international distribution of their records at the time, but as it was they were limited to the Canadian market, and the U.S. missed out. Now we can get this CD, though, and finally hear them.

Stellar 1966 Montreal garage rock 14 July 2005
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As champions of the English-language side of the Montreal garage rock scene, The Haunted managed to get a few international releases even though they never toured outside of their home country or saw any international chart action. This 1995 compilation's 22 tracks collect the band's sole album and all of their singles, included are both versions (the original 45 and subsequent LP take) of their garage rock classic, "1-2-5." I actually prefer the better recorded LP version, though the original has a raw energy that can't be denied.

The influence of the Rolling Stones is evident throughout, but particularly on covers of Joe South's "Untie Me" and the Stones' original "Out of Time." The Yardbirds impact can be heard on the original "Horror Show," and other blues-based fuzz-guitar-organ-and-harmonica rockers, including a good cover of The Little Boy Blues' "I Can Only Give You Everything." The band makes good on Bo Diddley's "Mona" (sounding more like The Strangeloves than Diddley), but by the time of the group's last single ("Land of Make Believe" b/w "An Act of Leisure") the garage sound had been converted into Cream/Hendrix-styled ballroom acid rock. Their French-language covers of "Talk Talk" and "Purple Haze" are a good laugh.

Sound quality is generally excellent, with a minimum of vinyl crackle and pops; the only real disappointment is a digital dropout at the 1-minute mark of "I Can Only Give You Everything." The liner notes from Ralph Alfonso sketch the band's history, and interview quotes from the band's original lead singer, Bob Burgess, give an inside view. Discographical information (labels, matrix numbers, dates) is mostly absent.

The Haunted - self-titled (Voxx) 4 1/2 stars 1 Nov. 2007
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1967, as this was the sole album by the Montreal garage rock five piece. Sort of like the Stones-meets-Chocolate Watchband. About every one of these twenty-two tracks totally rip. Like both versions of "1-2-5", "Shake", the Trogg's "I Can Only Give You Everything", the Stones "Out Of Time", "Twist", the happening "Montreal Blues" {this cut may be the best song here}, their smoking take of Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man" and "No More Lovin'". Line-up: Bob Burgess-vocals, Peter Jurgen & Al Birmingham-guitars, Mason Shea-bass and Peter Symes-drums. Worth checking out.

A full album 22 Mar. 2004
By Mark R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When unearthing these obscure bands, lost for 30 plus years (except to a fanatical cult), you have to wonder if a full album is necessary for some of these groups. Take a groups like the Sonics, Remains, We The People; these groups were strong track after track. No filler. No additives. No lame ass covers..
I can't say the same for the Haunted. No problem - "1-2-5" is a classic, a must have. But it's appeared on other compilations. A French version of "Purple Haze".....nope, don't need it. I am not a big Jimi fan and never like half hour guitar solos. I get bored easily. But "Purple Haze" was a bit beyond the reach of these boys. It simply comes off as "that" band of classmates who played on Saturday nights in the cafeteria your high school. They simply didn't have the material to put together a powerful album. And look, I don't have problems with an LP loaded with covers. Take the Litter's first LP, pretty much a tour de force from beginning to end.
The later material definitely moves in the psychedelic strain, and that's where I get off. For the fan of Canadian 60's bands, it's a must have. For someone who has only heard "1-2-5", it's your call, you may be a bit disappointed.
This is mid-1960s garage rock at its best. 17 Oct. 1998
By S. MacGregor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD is a good collection of The Haunted's recordings. Their sound is straight-forward guitar rock, pure and simple. There's an assortment of original material and cover versions. The covers include the Tams' "Untie Me," Bo Diddley's "Mona," the Rolling Stones' "Out of Time," Love's "A Message to Pretty," The Music Machine's "Talk Talk" (as "Porquoi" - "Why"), and Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" (as "Vapeur Mauve"), the last two being sung in French, and "I'm a Man." The last song is too heavily copied form the Yardbirds' version, perhaps, right down to the vocals sounding like Keith Relf. "Vapeur Mauve" is missing the feedback and other guitar flourishes one expects from a Hendrix tune, too. Those are the only complaints I would have. I wish The Haunted had recorded more. The original material is very good, too, especially their classic "1-2-5," "Run Down Every Street," and "Eight O'Clock This Morning."
