4.0 out of 5 stars Rampant 60s subculture.
The Creation, what a group, never released an album, had a constantly changing line up and yet produced a collection of singles most other bands of the same period (bar the Beatles) would have been proud of. Making Time and How Does It Feel... are the real highlights of this compilation but there are plenty of others who compete closely, Painter Man and Biff Bang Pow...

3.0 out of 5 stars Being Creative...
With its colourful title and arty, paint-splash cover, I was expecting this to be a psychedelic album, but it isn't. From what I can tell The Creation were a Mod pop combo, and a good one at that. For me, the stand out tracks are "Making Time", "Cool Jerk" and "How Does It Feel to Feel?". The last of these is best, especially the feedback-laden US version, and was later...

No, that's not their only claim to fame. The Creation, should they have been able to continue the spirit of the first 4 tracks on here, would have been as big as perhaps The Who. And despite the 'Hey Joe,' and 'Like A Rolling Stone', those first 4 tracks are just about everything you need. Released as 45's on the Planet record label, both the 'A' and the 'B' sides tore your record player apart, (bear in mind this was pre-hi-fi!), and left you gibbering on the floor like a fool. Saw them when they played Bournemouth's Gaumont on a bill probably with the Walker Brothers or Gene Pitney, and much like this release, those 4 tracks shone like diamonds. One can argue by repeating the formula for these tracks you'd overkill by having too much of a good thing, but for me this was what The Creation were about - Eddie Phillips ever the wild and angry Pete Townshend within the band. For what this CD costs, look upon it as a 4 track maxi-single, play the first 4 and forget the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Creation, 17 Oct 2011
This review is from: 'our Music Is Red - With Purple Flashes' (Audio CD)
This CD arrived in good time and in good condition. This CD takes me back to some rare 1960s tracks.
