5.0 out of 5 stars Groovy
I bought this as a Christmas present for an American music guru. He had not come across the group before, and was thrilled with the collection

3.0 out of 5 stars Every Mother's Son - The Complete MGM Recordings
Now Sounds presents the only 2 albums made by this short-lived, one hit wonder group who wrote a very decent hook laden, bouncy pop song, 'Come On Down To My Boat' - a deserved hit and their finest moment. 'Alison Dozer' pinches the riff from 'Til The End Of The Day'; 'Didn't She Lie' and 'I Won't' are from the same stable as 'Come On Down' but not as good...

This review is from: Come On Down; The Complete MGM Recordings (Audio CD)
Now Sounds presents the only 2 albums made by this short-lived, one hit wonder group who wrote a very decent hook laden, bouncy pop song, 'Come On Down To My Boat' - a deserved hit and their finest moment. 'Alison Dozer' pinches the riff from 'Til The End Of The Day'; 'Didn't She Lie' and 'I Won't' are from the same stable as 'Come On Down' but not as good. Unfortunately, the boys also dabbled in some unforgivable schmaltz: 'What Became Of Mary' is surely a contender for worst pop song ever. 'Brandy' sounds like someone had been over-dosing on The Byrd's version of 'Wild Mountain Thyme'. Their second album opens with a genuine burst of sunshine pop, 'Rainflowers'. The prevailing trend of psychedelics can be heard in the child-like 'Dolls Clock' and the groovy 'Put Your Mind At Ease'. The band's roots in New York's Greenwich Village is heard in 'I May Be Right'. 'The Proper Four Leaf Clover' approaches the heights of 'Come On Down To My Heart'. The doom-laden, heavy folk number 'Only Child' features an out-of place but welcome run of fuzz guitar. 'I'd Rather Be Wrong' would have been a hit for The Monkees.

The sleeve notes and pictures are a joy, and more importantly the re-mastering is glorious.
