All The Searchers first 5 albums, all on Pye label, are essential to me. Best tracks here are Four Strong Winds & Take Me For What I/m Worth. There's a German language version of Goodbye My Love although it's not here in English! The band's single hits may have dried up, but no worries, their top quality recordings just continued. It's fun, enjoy this album!
The tracks from this album are presented in original mono,matching stereo versions and bonus tracks.The album was originally recorded in 1965 and remastered for CD release.With a total of 31 tracks the CD is great value not only for the "collector" but also the younger fan who wants to check out a band whose contribution to 1960's English music between 1963 and 1966 was second only to the Beatles.This album,their fifth,marked the band's final LP of their 60's sojourn and by this time their playing and song selection had reached a new level of perfection.I particularly enjoyed the folk influenced Four Strong Winds.The song is unadorned with instrumentation allowing the Searchers' exquisite harmony vocals to shine through.The Searchers are nothing but eclectic.The opening track is a 1950's style rock and roll boogie complete with Jerry Lee Lewis style piano.Track two, I'll Be Doggone is Mo-Town influenced.The ballad,Does She Really Care For Me features the emotion laden vocals of Chris Curtis and It's Time is penned by band member John McNally.Don't You Know Why features Everly Brothers style harmonies and Too Many Miles brings in an interesting flute lead for most of the song.60's Psychedelia gets the nod on I'm Your Loving Man.The jangling, chiming guitars that gave the Byrds their jump start are all over the track Each Time.This song in the vein of the hit single When You Walk In The Room and just as catchy could have been a hit single in its own right.Happily you have the oppurtunity to enjoy this fine song right here on the remastered CD.The title track from the album Take Me For What I'm Worth is the final one from the original song listing.This is another fine song in the electric folk idiom also released as a single and a top twenty hit for the group.The bonus tracks are notable for the hit singles lesser as well as well known.He's Got No Love,When I Get Home and Goodbye My Love sung in German.The B-side So far Away is another gem to be discovered on this CD.Thanks to the wonders of the CD player programming button and the great value contained in this CD listeners will be able to make up a song selection from these thirty one tracks to suit any mood in original mono,sparkling stereo versions and bonus tracks.Enjoy these performances from the Searchers in their finest hours!
