I bought this CD on the basis of the brilliant song mentioned above. I was hoping that any band which could come up with such a song could hopefully come up with something else equally good. I'm glad to say I was not disappointed. Of the 12 songs on the original album from 1968, I'd say 8 are definitely worth having, and some of the 10 bonus tracks, singles, demos and outtakes are better than some album tracks. For such a cheap price too you can't go wrong. Although it's hard to neatly categorize their musical style, it's strongly recommended to any fan of late 60s acoustic rock with a psychedelic edge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holy Mackerel - self-titled (Collector's Choice) 1 Jan. 2012
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1968, this was the sunshine pop band's only album. Looks to be one of Paul William's early works. With this CD reissue, you get the lp's initial twelve songs + ten added bonus tracks for your listening pleasure. Most impressive cuts are "The Lady Is Waiting" (both versions), the inspiring "Somewhere In Arizona At 4:30 AM - Restaurant Song", the country-like "The Wild Side Of Life", "Love For Everyone" and the somewhat stunning "Listen To The Voice" (truly, great flute work). Line-up: Paul Williams - lead vocals, George Hiller - guitar, harmonica, organ, banjo & vocals, Jerry Scheff - bass & vocals, Mentor Williams - rhythm guitar, Cindy Fitzpatrick - flute & vocals and Mike Cannon - drums. Recommended for fans of the Beau Brummels, Mamas & The Papas, Dillard & Clark and the Lovin' Spoonful.
4.0 out of 5 stars excellent 3 Nov. 2014
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Holy Mackerel was Paul William's first band, and they put out this album in 1968.

What is always fascinating about Williams--who wrote for the Carpenters and Three Dog Night among many others--is his unique sense of cadence. He lines up chords like no one else. Listen to "Bitter Honey," or "Scorpio Red.' for great examples of this

Every track here has loving care placed upon it, as you can tell by thee plush but economic arrangements. There is no fat or filler here. It woks as album art.

There are several bonus tracks, including the 45 mono mix of "Bitter Honey."
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing stuff featuring Paul Williams...who is as relevant today as he was then (check out the latest Daft Punk album) 29 Jun. 2013

The music on the Holy Mackerel album perfectly represents its era. It's an overlooked gem that should finally be recognized.
