American 60s bubblegum pop / rock band worth investigating.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
This cd is very Jeckl and Hyde. The first 13 tracks are bubblegum popish and most of them are quite good, "Green Tambourine", "Shoeshine Boy" and "I was not born to follow" are the standout tracks for me. These first 13 or so all have a naive childlike charm and optimism and are quite melodic, i suppose they sound a cross between the Ohio Express and the Monkees. Most of the rest of the songs are a complete change of direction and are quite blues/rock orientated and are almost like the Doors circa Morrison Hotel/LA Woman!
Its a shame they're relatively unheard of today in England as they are still worthy of a listen to. If you like trawling through the bands of the 60s for forgotten gems then this is definatley worth consideration, especialy at this price.
