The film Riot On Sunset Strip was a quickie cash-in on the Los Angeles teenage rampages of 1966, produced by Sam Katzman, who made Rock Around The Clock. The film included some footage of the Chocolate Watch Band and the Standells playing in the Pandara's Box nightclub (actually miming in a studio reconstruction to recordings purpose-made on the Paramount soundstage) which over time gave the film a cult status.
Naturally a cheapo mono soundtrack LP on Tower Records came out promptly, featuring both bands (a third band, The Enemies, were excluded as they were contracted to MGM). The Standells perform the stand out title track and a song called Get Away From Here (minus its drum track here, due to a mastering error by the soundstage engineers), while the Chocolate Watch Band contribute Don't Need Your Lovin' from their live set (a re-write of Milk Cow Blues) and a hastily improvised Sitting There Standing, which tautological title disguises a close steal from Jeff Beck's The Nazz Are Blue - both great tracks, but available elsewhere in stereo mixes.
The rest of the original album was filler put together by Mike Curb and has nothing to do with the released film (apart from the song by Debra Travis which was quickly excised from the film after previews), including The Sunset Theme, despite its title, and one should note that these Mugwumps have nothing to do with Mama Cass's band of the same name.
Of more interest are the 11 previously unissued Standells outtakes. The earliest of these is It's All In Your Mind, recorded at Gold Star in 1965 before they signed to Tower, and one of six here that are in stereo. Their version of Batman, from the Dirty Water sessions, shows that they had other sides apart from the garage punk for which they are famous.

The Standells had through their relatively short career difficulties in finding the group's right expression. The four albums which the band released during 1966-67 reflect this and they are to various entent pretty uneven, not least in terms of direction and choice of repertoire. Most successful is probably the group's second album "Why Pick on Me", which also exists in a version with five bonus tracks all of which can be found on this rarities release, and these actually all be among the best originally unreleased tracks by the group.

The fact that the group was unsure of direction also comes out pretty clearly on this release. There is no doubt that the group was strongest in the raw and punk expression, when their tight playing and melodic approach to the material created some of the best early punk / garage music. Here this is documneted with the title track to "Riot on Sunset Strip" and "Try it". Both numbers can be found on the group's last album "Try it" from 1967. Also, the group's two original rock ballads "I Hate two Leave You" and "The Boy Who is Lost" show the band from their strongest side; strange that these two tracks did not find their way to any of the original albums. Also the track "Our Candidate" which was given to the group by Paul Revere and the Raiders, suits the band fine.

The more garnered "Schoolgirl" and "It's All in Your Mind" seem more bland without being really weak. The same can be said of organist Larry Tamlyn's "Looking to Tomorrow".

"Love Me", which was written by guitarist Tony Valentino and drummer Dick Dodd, seems a little unfinished and does not come out particularly interesting.

The group recorded a version of "Batman", no wonder, who didn't do this those years - nothing new in Standells' version, though.

I looked for this soundtrack for long years. It is probably one of the best ever rock soundtracks of all times. It is hard to believe the firm rock sound of some songs come from the sixties.

Cult film cash-in - with bonuses 29 Nov. 2005
By Lozarithm - Published on Amazon.com

Their version of Batman, from the Dirty Water sessions, shows that they had other sides apart from the garage punk for which they are famous. Our Candidate was given to them by its writer, Smitty Smith of the Raiders. Similarly, School Girl was presented to the band by a visiting Graham Gouldman (the Mindbenders also recorded a version of the song). Try It has a different vocal to that of the familiar single, and Rari is the full unedited version of the flipside of Dirty Water

Standells - 'Riot On Sunset Strip / Rarities' (Big Beat) 3 1/2 stars 18 Dec. 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As it turns out, this is actually another one of those 2-lp's-on-one CD releases. First it's the soundtrack to the 1967 cult film 'Riot On Sunset Strip' that includes just two tracks by the Standells and others like The Mugumps, Mom's Boys, Sidewalk Sounds and Chocolate Watchband. It's a decent collection of '60's garage tunes, I thought. Plus the rest of this disc is a collection of Standell's out-takes. You know, cutting room floor material. Better cuts include the title track "Riot On Sunset Strip", "Batman", "School Girl" and "Rari". Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a HUGE Standells fan. A should-have.

The group recorded a version of "Batman", no wonder, who didn't do this those years - nothing new in Standells' version, though.

"Try It" has an alternative vocal, which is funny, but the original version is clearly the strongest. "Rari" is an extended version that feels aminute or two too long.

Besides title track Standells contribute to the soundtrack "Riot on Sunset Strip" with "Get Away From Here" - a nice number that does not seem as if it has reached beyond the demo stage, though.

The Chocolate Watch Band, who were another of the most interesting garage bands from this time, give a very Stones inspired 'Do not Need Your Lovin' "and" Sitting Here Understanding ", which sounds a lot like Yardbird's" The Nazz Are Blue "with new lyrics.

All in all an interesting release for fans of early American Garage Rock .
Nice to see an old favorite on CD! 16 Jan. 2010
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com

I've loved the Riot Soundtrack album forever, and had no idea it had been issued on CD (albeit in combination with additional Standells material and without the original cover) till now.

To deal with the lesser stuff first, I've always been sort of intrigued by the Debra Travis track, and you gotta love "Drew"'s shameless ripping off of The Byrds' version of Dylan's "Spanish Harlem Incident."

But the gold, of course, is the Standells and Chocolate Watchband tracks, which comprise some of their best work. I've always said if there were an audio dictionary, then CWB's "Don't Need Your Lovin'" would play when you got to the Garage Rock entry. Everything great about the genre is encapsulated in this track, and "Sitting There Standing" is similarly savage. And yes, I know they're both rip-offs of others too...but they're so great.

The Standells' title track is one of their finest moments, but I come back again and again to "Get Away From Here" -- another song that really has no precedent I can think of. I know the drums and bass are missing, but that only adds to its weird charm. I just find the sound of the electric 12-string very moving.

Finally, to amplify/correct one aspect of an earlier review, there *was* a stereo issue of the Riot on Sunset Strip soundtrack...I have it. But the compilers here wisely chose the mono version for the reissue, which is way more powerful. The extra Standells tracks are true stereo, however, and many of them sound promising.
A fact most people probably don't know 15 Oct. 2009

Davie Allan played and or sang on three of the songs listed. On Sunset Theme he played lead guitar as part of The Sidewalk Sounds (one of the Arrows' aliases). On Make the Music Pretty he sang harmony to Mike Curb's lead vocal. And on Like My Baby he played guitar and sang harmony to Drew Bennett's lead vocal. Davie is well known as the lead guitar player and leader of the band Davie Allan and The Arrows and continues to record and perform. He has a new album called Retrophonic with new material and also some previously unreleased songs from the sixties. It is available through Amazon November 10, 2009 but I got my copy directly from Davie at his website: [...] (he autographed it!).
