5.0 out of 5 stars "It's been a long, long, long time .....", 29 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Brother (Audio CD)
I was so excited to hear that this long lost Apple album was coming out on CD, having been overlooked in the label reissue series a couple of years ago, and during the first such campaign in the 90's.

Anyone who's familiar with the Van Eaton song "Sweet Music" which was on the Apple Records "Best Of" compilation knows how good these NJ brothers sound. Very Beatle-esque (kind of hard not to be when you're working with George Harrison and Ringo Starr c.1971-72), but the other material on the album is equally impressive. Small wonder that George, Ringo and John Lennon all loved their demo tape, a testament unto itself in that they were signed via the "traditional" submission of a demo route, given Apple's culture of getting signed to the label based on "who you knew".

This was one of those "critics darlings" albums (both Billboard and Rolling Stone simply RAVED about it) which was crimnally overlooked, largely due to the label falling apart in the wake of the Beatles break-up.

Having the generous dose of bonus tracks allows us to hear what the original album would have played like, before decisions were made to rework some of the tunes and swap out others.

It's a great slice of early 70's album rock, with some uncanny melodies. Listen closely to "Without The Lord". You'll never listen to George Harrison's "Miss O'Dell" the same way again.

We're blessed to have this delightful album available again.
