Unfortunately, the direction on this album was led astray. It might have been better if The Koobas hadn't heard anything after 1965 as they were clearly at their best with straight-ahead pop a la early Who/Small Faces. The energetic "Royston Rose" shows the way though, like the rest of the album, it suggests that the band weren't great songwriters.
Instead, someone had the bright idea of throwing poetry, dialogue, studio tomfoolery and other devices into the gaps between songs. That sort of thing worked for The Beatles, but not here, where it sounds as if The Koobas thought they had a duty to shove in a gimmick. Worst of all is their very own "Mr Kite" which finishes the album. On this they portray several circus acts in music and the result is hideous.
The eight bonus tracks enhance the CD, but show the band's dilemma. They were easily led according to fads. Why else would they cover the archaic "Sally"?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This set consists of the Koobas' one and only LP--a low budget "concept album" of great psychedelic guitar rock with the tracks running together in the most classic 1967/68 mode. This is a good entertaining set, but do not expect soul because the Koobas definitely were not doing soul music by this time. The extra tracks include the Mod classic "My Face," the overblown psychedelicized version of Cat Stevens' "First Cut is the Deepest" and the one song which can lay some limited claim to the soul designation--"Sweet Music." If you love low budget British psych rockers such as The Smoke, you will love the Koobas.
