Product Description

Product Description

Raven presents for the first time on CD two original, classic albums by The Raiders – Collage (1970) and Indian Reservation (1971). With superb quality audio, detailed liner notes, color booklet, 23 tracks and 77 minutes of music. Throughout the 1960s Paul Revere & the Raiders were one of the most popular and successful American groups, with 14 Top 40 US hit singles and hundreds of television appearances on Where the Action Is and Happening. Their hits between 1965 and 1967 (such as 'Just like Me' and 'Kicks') were bold, unpretentious slices of '60s rock & roll with a defiant, punk edge. By 1970 they'd progressed musically, adopting a more mature, contemporary approach exemplified by the brilliant Collage album and the hard riffing single 'Just Seventeen'. Lenny Kaye famously gave Collage a positive review in Rolling Stone. Then in 1971 the group scored their biggest US hit, the #1 'Indian Reservation' which captured perfectly the spirit of the times and was Columbia Records highest selling single. The album Indian Reservation included another big hit 'Birds of a Feather'. This top value 2-for-1 CD concludes with two bonus tracks, the band's final hits, 'Country Wine' and the crunching 'Powder Blue Mercedes Queen'.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is never 'Swamp Rock" 9 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have no idea where the previous reviewer got the idea that is 'Swamp Rock'. Swamp pop/rock comes from Louisiana and Cajun Music.
This is pure rock with a slightly pop/hard edge. Paul Revere and The Raiders made loads of albums and had 14 Top 40 U.S. hits and were one of the premier pop/rock of the sixties, although they were often very underrated in some countries.
These 2 albums came for the early 1970's and they changed their style to rock with a slightly harder edge to move with the changing face of music at that time.
There are a number of hit records on the CD as well as covers of other peoples hits. It also includes 2 songs from the 3rd album released in the early 70's called Country Wine.
Put this on your CD player and listen to why the Raiders, and Mark Lindsay in particular, were/are such good musicians. Paul Revere is still playing the club circuit today, although he is now in his 70's.
Check out their older CD's and listen to one of the most influential but underrated bands from the sixties.

5.0 out of 5 stars two great rock releases! 15 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD
'indian reservation' was the biggest rock single from columbia records in the 1970's. It was a number one smash. The rest of the record is good too. But collage is a better release with strong songs like 'just seventeen' , 'we gotta all get together" it's a solid rock release that critics of the time compared favorably with other hit rock groups. Collage rocks more than 'indian reservation' but both are very good releases from this band. their next one country wine is also available on amamazon.com too. This is a great package as you get two classic rock releases on one cd and this is good rock too.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Real Fans 22 July 2009
By Max - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed the last three Raiders albums. It was a real shame that the public responded so indifferently to "Collage," there was real potential in the budding Lindsay and Allison songwriting partnership. I don't know, but I get the feeling that the band participated in the studio more than they had done in the past. The drumming, most likely by Joe Correro, was stellar and Lindsay's inventive production created an album that still sounds great today.

Indian Reservation and Country Wine, which followed,were much more schizophrenic affairs, comprised of about 2/3 pop covers and 1/3 rockers. It would be nice if the tracks "Take a Stand," and "Golden Girls Sometimes" were also available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album finally on CD 11 Aug 2009
By Larry J. Goffinet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the reviewer who said it would have made more sense to pair Indian Reservation with the Country Wine album on this CD. But at least the Indian Reservation album, probably the Raiders' best overall, is finally on CD. The delay in releasing it may have been partly because the title song was available on so many various artists CD compilations. But this album had much more going for it. In keeping with the times, this was the Raiders' "social conscience" album with covers of songs such as "Heaven Help Us All," "Eve of Destruction" and "Prince of Peace" joining the title track. And Mark Lindsay's voice was at its peak here, as he outsings Steve Wonder and Barry McGuire's original versions of those classics.

There is also some great drum work (probably by studio legend Hal Blaine) on "Come in, You'll Get Pneumonia."

Blaine definitely plays the drums on the "Indian Reservation" song (Lindsay has said Blaine kept the dust covers on his drums for that song to get the proper muffled sound), but some of the actual Raiders played on that album as well, something that didn't happen often after the group's first year. This was probably the Raiders' strongest overall lineup, though, as bass player Keith Allison had a solo career before joining the Raiders and guitarist Freddy Weller had numerous country hits while and after he was with the Raiders, as well as having been a studio guitarist before joining them (playing on Billy Joe Royal's 1965 hit, "Down in the Boondocks," among others). Weller has said he's not sure which tracks he played on for this album but Allison claims to have played the keyboards on "Indian Reservation" (including the strong signature closing) as well as bass on several songs. Keyboardist Paul Revere's main contribution to this album was promoting it, as his motorcycle tour of radio stations across the country has been credited with helping the title song reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Of the 10 songs on the Indian Reservation album, the only weak one is the aptly named "The Turkey." It is also the only song on that album written by Lindsay, who must have been experiencing writer's block at the time after composing so many great hits for the group. But hey, even John Fogerty writes a bad song once in a while.

The Collage album is not as great, but this CD concludes with two dynamite bonus tracks from the Country Wine album, "Country Wine" and Power Blue Mercedes Queen." They and the first nine tracks from the Indian Reservation album are more than enough to give this CD five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally on CD, But Where's COUNTRY WINE? 23 July 2009
By gassy goon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
At least RAVEN finally had the sense to release INDIAN RESERVATION on CD at last. This album was one of The Raider's biggest, as INDIAN RESERVATION gave them a #1 hit . The album has more hard rocking songs including a great cover of SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME, as well as more pop tunes, like their follow-up hit , BIRDS OF A FEATHER.

COLLAGE from 1970 is The Raider's most hard-rocking album with Mark Lindsay producing and the band branching out more with harder rock, socio-political songs and more experimenting with different textures, horns and sounds. No really big hit ever emerged from this very good endeavor , and for some reason the band re-recorded WE GOTTA ALL GET TOGETHER [ their top 50 1969 hit ] and 2 songs from their 1967 REVOLUTION album, GONE MOVIN' ON and TIGHTER. I prefer the originals of all 3 songs. It was the bands attempt to make new inroads as a rock band, but with no hit single, it didn't get many sales. Still good to hear though.

HOWEVER, Raven should have coupled the INDIAN RESERVATION album from 1971 with 1972's COUNTRY WINE album. This would have made more sense chronologically. But a big also is that COLLAGE has already been released on CD on Mark Lindsay's own label courtesy of Sony/BMG Special Products. Being that the SUNDAZED label stopped at the Paul Revere and The Raiders reissues with 1969's ALIAS PINK PUZZ, and COLLAGE already on CD, COUNTRY WINE would have made a perfect companion for a CD two-fer. Too bad they messed up the pairing. Now when will we get a " Best Of " Mark Lindsay CD with all his many 45 vinyl single only releases? That's a huge demand on the part of Linday & Raiders fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars FM radio blew it 20 Feb 2010
By Brother Mor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hoping to expand to a more mature and broader audience, Mark Lindsay pulled out the stops to record the Collage album. In my mind, this is the penultimate Raiders album, and they recorded a lot of good albums. I've always personally enjoyed the album cuts over the singles on the Raider albums. FM radio of the day was trying their best to be "heavy" (mostly they had their collective heads up their collective rears) and because they couldn't get past the Revolutionary War outfits and the Action slapstick of Paul Revere & the Raiders, they wouldn't give Collage a fair play. So nobody really heard it, and it is a great album. Indian Reservation was recorded after Collage, but is on this disc first I suppose because it was a seller, following the Indian Reservation single success. The rest of the album is good, not great, with the exception of possibly Eve of Destruction and Leon Russell's song Prince of Peace, both being worthy of airplay also. A couple of songs from the last LP, Country Wine, were added to this disc. Collage is not currently available anywhere except maybe a collector's sale somewhere, so get this CD for that album.

5.0 out of 5 stars great sounds from the seventies 25 Nov 2009
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I agree with everyone elses review that Raven should have put out "country wine" with "indian reservation"; however they released this in Australia where 'collage" was not released on cd at all. So for them it was a proper move. I talked to "sundazed records" who put out the rest of the "paul revere and the raiders" catalog from 1964-69, and they claimed that CBS had the tapes for "collage" , "indian reservation" , 'country wine" and a unreleased ablum, but they wanted too much money to put these four discs out. Obviously the Raven release has just proved them wrong. Of course they could still put out "country wine' and put that unreleased album on it as well. In fact I emailed Raven and suggested this as well. Just find them on the web and throw them a line. And throw one at Sundazed for being boneheaded about putting out these classics!.
As for these ablums on cd: 'collage" is the better of the two if you are a rock fan, there are a few true by any standard classic rock songs: "think twice" , 'just seventeen", 'boys in the band" and 'dr fine" the rest of the album is pretty good too, with a new version of the hit 'we gotta all get together" on it, and 'Indian reservation' is a good rock and pop mixture with two hits and of course the great classic number one song 'indian reservation" . A few songs sound like pure pop with lots of horns but most of them are good songs, a few I can't say are too great but that's ok. "country wine' is a even stronger album song wise in many respects.
Email raven! And this is classic rock from a underrated band that should be in the rock and roll hall of fame.
RAVEN came through 'country wine" is now on cd with 11 bonus tracks. and it's on amazon,com now!
