This is a long-overdue release. The Rationals mid-60's singles have been championed by those who've been aware of them for many years and it's more than welcome to see them all lovingly compiled on this 2-disc package from Ace records.
Feelin Lost is the perfect opener - rolling drums, strident guitar and charged, desperate vocals. The fun continues with the subsequent tracks. Tempos shift from frantic garage punk to soulful ballads, with the common factor being the feel for the material shared by every member of the band. These guys had the right ingredients to make all the material swing, no matter whether the song was a cover or an original.
Grab this set if you're a Detroit rock fan or if you're just a rock n roll fan who wants to hear one of the premier US mid-60's combos in full flight.
