'indian reservation' was the biggest rock single from columbia records in the 1970's. It was a number one smash. The rest of the record is good too. But collage is a better release with strong songs like 'just seventeen' , 'we gotta all get together" it's a solid rock release that critics of the time compared favorably with other hit rock groups. Collage rocks more than 'indian reservation' but both are very good releases from this band. their next one country wine is also available on amamazon.com too. This is a great package as you get two classic rock releases on one cd and this is good rock too.

I have no idea where the previous reviewer got the idea that is 'Swamp Rock'. Swamp pop/rock comes from Louisiana and Cajun Music.
This is pure rock with a slightly pop/hard edge. Paul Revere and The Raiders made loads of albums and had 14 Top 40 U.S. hits and were one of the premier pop/rock of the sixties, although they were often very underrated in some countries.
These 2 albums came for the early 1970's and they changed their style to rock with a slightly harder edge to move with the changing face of music at that time.
There are a number of hit records on the CD as well as covers of other peoples hits. It also includes 2 songs from the 3rd album released in the early 70's called Country Wine.
Put this on your CD player and listen to why the Raiders, and Mark Lindsay in particular, were/are such good musicians. Paul Revere is still playing the club circuit today, although he is now in his 70's.
Check out their older CD's and listen to one of the most influential but underrated bands from the sixties.
