This review is from: Travelin' (Audio CD)
Pigeonholed as a party singles band because of early hits like 'Mony Mony', James and his band were actually no slouches when it came to songwriting and studio craft. While Denny Cordell provided them with much of their hit material, the band wrote a lot too, peaking with the 'Crimson And Clover' album. This is their last album before they split and deserves recognition too.

Made at the end of the 1960s, it sees them edging toward a more abrasive rock sound. It isn't heavy, however, and doesn't eschew their pop tendencies altogether. Uniformly very good, perhaps only 'Moses And Me', with its looped guitar line, stands above the other tracks. 'She', however, sticks out like a sore thumb. The band weren't keen on including it, as it was a pop hit, complete with orchestra, and is the only song on the album that James co-wrote with outsiders. That said, it's classy, and as the album is only 34 minutes long even with this track, it's still a welcome addition to an impressive collection.
