5.0 out of 5 stars Ten tracks, five stars - but no stars for Amazon., 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flashback With The Association (Audio CD)
The Association. In the UK that meant "Windy", "Time for Livin'" and (until David Cassidy's 1972 cover version was much more successful in the UK) "Cherish". But in the states "Along Came Mary" and others were pretty huge hits and Cherish was a number one. This is melodic, harmonic flawless pop music with catchy but non inane lyrics and good production. It still galls me a little that - back in the mid-late 1960s - so many bands of this quality were regularly failing to get hits with quality material such as you'll hear on this disc while we got "Congratulations" and "Puppet on a String" (though of course Cliff and Sandie did have some quality hits too!).

Whenever I go to the US I always find the local "classic hits" stations (yes, they have them over there, their music radio doesn't suck as much as ours does) and I discover some great old song that was a big hit there but never broke the surface over here. Some of these tracks are good examples.

If all you're after is the hits, then this low-price album is for you; even though it only contains 10 tracks, all the ones you want are here (including "Never my Love" - my personal favourite of their "shoulda been a UK-hit"s) and yes these are the original hits, though they are stereo. I have 7" mono Vinyls still of "Windy" and "Time for Livin'" and these are the same performances.

Amazon knows what tracks are on this album because if you search for Windy by the Association, this CD comes up in the list of results - and yet there is no track list on the product page! Boy oh boy Amazon, you used to be so much better at this stuff.

Here's the tracklist.
1 Along Comes Mary
2 Cherish
3 No Fair at All
4 Windy
5 Never My Love
6 Everything That Touches You
7 Time For Livin'
8 Six Man Band
9 Goodbye, Columbus
10 Dreamer

Highly recommended.

Thanks for the tracklist - I agree it's frustrating when Amazon don't provide them.
