2.0 out of 5 stars Big in America - Not Really Sure why 5 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This group sold millions in America and are famed for their three part harmony.

As a purchase this is good value but the attraction remains elusive. Lots of cover versions of songs a handful of which do sound good (It's for You). However you come away with a slight whiff of blandness and mediocrity that doesn't quite go away even after repeated listenings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Classic 3 Dog Night Albums On One remastered Cd! 23 July 2004
By highway_star - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Three Dog Night appeared on the music scene in the late 60's and took the world by storm. Fronted by three lead singers Chuck Negron, Corey Wells and Danny Hutton (all who had their own unique style) and a terrific band featuring Floyd Sneed on drums, Mike Allsup on guitar, Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards and Joe Schermie on bass, the band had more hit singles in the time they were together than any other band of the era. This excellent remastered cd includes Three Dog Night's first two albums "Three Dog Night" and "Suitable For Framing". Their debut album entitled simply "Three Dog Night" produced the hits "Nobody","Try A Little Tenderness" (a song originally sung by Otis Redding) and "One". The album was a combination of r&B and rock with numerous standouts (as well as the above mentioned hits) such as "Heaven Is In Your Mind" (written by Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi), "Chest fever" which features Jimmy Greenspoon's superb organ/keyboards, and "The Loner" (written by Neil Young). Three Dog Night's second release "Suitable For Framing" produced the hits "Easy To Be Hard", "Eli's Coming" (written by Laura Nyro) and "Celebrate". Other excellent songs on the album included "Lady Samantha" (wriiten by Elton John and Bernie Taupin), "Feelin' Alright" (written by Dave Mason) and "Circle In For A landing" (written by Billy Preston). Included is a six page booklet with interesting information on the band and these two albums and colorful pictures. The sound quality is excellent due to remastering and the entire package is well put together in a jewel case which fits into a cardboard slip case. If you enjoy classic rock and/or are a Three Dog Night fan then this cd is a must have. Highly Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars MASTERING: NOT BAD, BUT NOT THE BEST 24 Feb 2007
By BOB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These Gott remastered discs sound decent, will probably sate the average person's TDN appetite, and being 2-fers, are a pretty good deal.

However, the TDN audio benchmarks are the 2002, 24-bit Universal Japan remasters of first five albums. If you are looking for THE best TDN audio, those CD's are a step above any and all other domestic and foreign versions available, including the Gott series.

Unfortunately, all five UJ-TDN titles went out-of-print shortly after their issue, and they have not been re-released. Hopefully, that situation will be rectified at some point in the future.

As all of the original TDN LP album covers were very creative & artistic productions, these albums would all also be a major candidate for CD LP-mini-sleeve packaging.

A sharp eye on eBay may turn these up. For reference, and double-checking with any potential seller, the OBI/spine catalog numbers are:

One - UICY-3370 Amazon link: One
Suitable For Framing - UICY-3371 Amazon link: Suitable for Framing
Captured Live At The Forum - UICY-3372
It Ain't Easy - UICY-3373 Amazon link: It Ain't Easy
Naturally - UICY-3374 Amazon link: Naturally

These masters may or may not be on UJ's TDN 2003 "The Collection", which is currently available, but I have not heard. The Japanese remasters are also superior to the domestic remastered 2004 "The Complete Hit Singles".

Again, as most people originally heard these songs coming out of an AM radio, they will probably be more than satisfied with the Gott's. They are certainly better than the horrid-sounding domestic MCA CD's, which are all derived from nearly 40-year-old LP-EQ'd masters.

However, while the spotlight was always cast on the singers, TDN had an amazing band, including an absolute genius in keyboard player Jimmy Greenspoon. The Japanese remasters allow the brilliance of that superb musicianship to be heard in greater detail and clarity than any other editions.

As an aside, while stars like Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman however deservedly had the keyboard-god-limelight in that era, when you think about it, it's probably safe to state that no other keysman was heard by more people in that generation than Jimmy Greenspoon. Yes, the TDN vocals were unique and timeless, and I take nothing from those three talented cats, but JG was the glue that brought everything together.

I own approximately 5000 CD's, and "Out In The Country", with JG's evocative B3 melody, is in my top ten favorite songs of all time. The next time you listen to any TDN album, focus on his playing, and you'll get it.

I've also read his tell-all book. It's quite amazing that TDN was able to function, much less generate the top studio performances that comprised all those monster hits, in the virtually permanent drug-addled state they were in.

It is fortuitous that Jimmy Greenspoon not only conquered and survived his addictions, but that he still performs with TDN to this day, because there is no Three Dog Night without him.

***2009 UPDATE***: European label BGO has released the first four TDN albums as "2-fer's" (2 albums on one CD). On Three Dog Night/Suitable For Framing, I am happy to report that the remastering job by BGO is ever so slightly but noticeably better than the 2002 Japan remaster. However, the subsequent release, It Ain't Easy/Naturally is not as good as the '02 Japan remasters.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Dog Night 10 Aug 2011
By JuJu3 - Published on Amazon.com

It was very hard to find the version of Three Dog Night - "A Change Is Gonna Come" on the Suitable for Framing album. It is only available in an album but it was well worth it to get the double cd of two seperate albums. Great sound and value. We love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars dreaming isn't good for you 5 Mar 2013
By D. Gorman "Crystalline Structure Moon" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
according to legend, danny hutton is the person who is most responsible for the formation of 3 dog night. he had just had a hit song that was big in california, but didn't go far beyond that area. still, he had cash and a name locally. he was a regular performer at the whiskey-a-go-go and was party buddies with 2 other regular singers at the whiskey: chuck negron and cory wells. danny was doing coke with chuck at a party when he told chuck he needed a few back-up singers for a project he was planning and had already recruited cory. chuck said he'd only met cory in passing but liked his singing at the whiskey-a-go-go....and chuck also said "sure, why not....as long as you got coke, danny, i'll be there." danny also invited a neighbor and party buddy, keyboardist jimmy greenspoon. at first taping, they discovered the 3 singers sounded so good and strong together, they decided to start a band that would feature all 3 dynamic voices. thus, these 4 men went on a journey that would become 3 dog night......a group that would release 8 smash top-10 albums including over 20 top-40 hit songs between 1968 - 1974. after that, the music biz and numerous drug problems brought the group to a fiery nasty end after a few more poor albums that went nowhere (and didn't deserve to go anywhere).
but these are their first 2 albums.....the beginning of the dream! 3dn were finding themselves, defining themselves and taking the world by storm! the first album opens with their huge hit 'one' and goes on with a strong, rocking album that is pure 1968! at the time, the hot sounds were jimi, janis, the doors, the jefferson airplane, the guess who, etc......and 3dn's first album fit right in! although not as ground-breaking as jimi or the doors, their style of rock featuring 3 great singers brandished them well-deserved attention! there was great song selection on this album, spanning from mellow ballads to a few pop tunes and a lot of good, hard-hitting rock & roll! the band is well featured with guitar solos by michael allsup and jimmy on keyboards and you are left with the perfect, groovy 1968 experience!
the second album 'suitable for framing' was released in the spring of 1969. it had a continuity with the first album, good song selection, and a strange, unexplained eerie mood that followed thru the whole album. i don't know how they did it or even if it was intentional.....but it is there......and it's a good thing. it gives the album purpose! when they chose to open this second album with their version of the relatively unknown dave mason tune 'feeling alright', they had no way of knowing that just a few months later, joe cocker would coincidentally choose to perform his own version of this tune at a concert in Woodstock, NY. consequently, this would lead joe to tear up the pop charts with this song. it was the first time fate would deal 3dn an unfair hand. still 3dn's version of the song is fresh, original and deserves to be heard. the rest of the album is a strong mix of pop, soul and heavy rock sounds. the short instrumental on side 2 of the album featuring drummer floyd sneed, 'king solomon's mines' is a fascinating addition to the album that gives the record as a whole a stronger individual personality. it was a brave and very worthwhile choice by the band. and although there is overall good song choices on this album, there are not as many guitar or keyboard solos on this album as there are on the first......as evidenced by the 3 big hits that came from this disc: 'eli's coming', 'easy to be hard' and 'celebrate', and although this downside was remedied on future albums......and though i wish they had remedied this problem on this album.......this is still a worthy album that i loved at the time.........and i love owning this album again now! it should also be noted that twice while going to the studio to record this album, 3dn accidentally ran into members of a new band named 'Chicago transit authority' (this group would soon shorten their name to 'Chicago'). 3 members of Chicago's horn section agreed to join 3dn for an impromptu jam. the result was an unrehearsed, spur-of-the-moment appearance of background horn jams during the songs 'feeling alright' and 'celebrate'. Chicago members got very little mention on the album and no payment for their contributions...but many musicians didn't mind volunteering to help friends on albums in those days. unfortunately, the friendship between 3dn and Chicago didn't last long when it was discovered that 3dn singer chuck Negron was sleeping with the wife of Chicago guitarist, terry kath. oh well. it's all part of the madcap world of sex, drugs and rock & roll! (a few years later, chuck married the ex-wife of the doors' drummer john densmore.) again, there is that certain mood that is maintained thoughout the album 'suitable for framing'.....and when coupled with the first album on one cd, this is a 5-star musical experience that is a pure delight! as a long-time 3dn fan and a fan of the late '60s music scene, i am very happy i have this disc with these 2 far out, groovy albums........and i think if you remember those days, you'll agree that these albums are out of sight, baby!!! long live 3dn!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST have... 2 Mar 2013
By TBG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you always loved the sound of Three Dog Night or just appreceiated the top plays at the time 68/69 + then may I suggest this 2 Disc CD. With 21 Tracts and a few you may not have heard, this is one for your Collection. A bluesy rendition of Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" & Randy Newman's "Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad", this band "nails it" in every way! It's one of my best that was typical of the Sound back when it seemed a bit simpler but was growing pains of the new talent that burst onto the scene...
