I first heard the Remains on two compilations. "Don't look back" on Nuggets (original artyfacts from ...) and "Why do I cry" on Rock: The Train Kept A Rollin' (Sony Music 100 years Soundtrack For A Century). 1965 - 1966 uptempo rock with not to many distortion on the guitar and a great vocalline! Those two songs blew my mind. Why weren't they more popular?
So I looked after their sole album and here it is! It opens with "Heart" which starts slow but explodes at the end. "Heart", "Lonely Week-End" and "Diddy Wah Diddy" are the covers on this album. The rest is pure original Remains. You also got 10 bonus tracks (non-LP singles and outtakes)in mono.
Legacy has reproduced the original album cover for this cd-version with a foreword from Barry Tashian, the leader of the band. If you like sixties rock, I advise you to by this.
I don't know what they have done to the sound over previous releases of this record, but it is awful and I just can't listen to it ! I had to play the earlier CD release (with the yellow cover) to rinse my ears
Play them back to back and you will know what I mean
