Customer Review

on 5 November 2009
Although I enjoyed this album it is obvious why most of these tracks failed to be more than a local hit. They lack the "X Factor". Either the vocals or the arrangements must have been to blame as someone saw the potential of these flawed offerings. However, it is these flaws that make the album intriguing and endearing. Some of the tracks must have been the victims of "wrong place wrong time" eg Bessie Banks' Go Now, whilst others like "Wild Thing" . . . well I'll leave the listener to decide. There are some personal faves here - Louie Louie, Go Now, Little Red Rooster, Tainted Love, Suspicious Minds - which I think give the hit versions a run for their money.
Not so sure that Hoagy Lands version of Baby Let me hold your hand was the inspiration for the Animals. I was always under the impression they got it from Bob Dylan's album together with House of the Rising sun. I'm sure someone will enlighten us.
All in all worth buying.
