5.0 out of 5 stars Gimme an F... :-), 30 Sep 2013
Up to now, I had not owned any Country Joe & The Fish, apart from the tracks included on the Woodstock soundtrack (both the original 1970 issue and the 6-CD box from 2009 that celebrated the 40th Anniversary by giving us a nice wide sampling of that crazy, beautiful, muddy hot mess, that disaster-area festival). When I saw this new remaster and the forthcoming (and by the time I write this, available) 2 CD remaster of I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die, I figured it was time to rectify that omission from my ever-widening CD collection.

And I certainly don't regret it - Electric Music for the Mind and Body is vital '67 psychedelia. It's all here: Joe McDonald's biting lyrics, David… Read more

This is by far not the Who's best album - apart from the rather twee "Squeeze Box," The Who By Numbers produced no hit singles at the time (I would personally have chosen "Slip Kid," as it's a much stronger and better track, and still gets plenty of air play on US classic rock radio). They had peaked commercially with the previous 3 studio efforts - Tommy (1969), Who's Next (1971) and Quadrophenia (1973) - and with a hat trick like that, how do you follow it up?

Sadly, it would seem, the Who were never quite able to manage that. The songs here are good, not great, to middling - Townshend's demons were getting harder to hold back, all four members were putting… Read more
Original Album Classics: Argent/Ring of Hands/All &hellip ~ Argent
The only complaint I have is that my copy has a different cover shot than the thumbnail image Amazon features - but it's a minor quibble, as it seems to feature the original lineup (which the other photo does not) who were present for most of these albums. As these albums are difficult to find in the States, this is a great way to get them; there are no bonus tracks, just the 5 original albums in mini-LP covers in this cardboard sleeve, no notes, and really not much info beyond what was printed on the album covers. But it's reasonably priced, and really, what more do you need? A fine introduction to Argent.
