Editorial Reviews

The latter-day incarnation of We Five covers a bunch of late-'60s folk-style ("Early Morning Rain," "Here Comes the Sun," etc.) numbers on Catch the Wind. Mike Stewart and company were trying, and the arrangements were pleasing, but the music was prettier than people wanted. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

The second We Five album had strayed to far into pop music, so this third offering was a welcome return to more of the folk/blues feel of You Were on My Mind. There was a new female lead, but she was strong enough to carry the vocals and added a harder edge to the sound.

I was very excited when I learned that this album was now available. After listening to it 1-3 times, I liked it, but was somewhat dissapointed. I was expecting more of the original We Five sound. Their version of Milk Cow Blues is really not that good. Where is Bev Bivens when you need her. I'm glad that this rounds out my We Five coleection, but again a bit dissapointed with the album.

By 1969, the idea of vocal pop was passe. Rock had gotten bluesier, harder, and earthier. What would stand to snuff in 1967 would get laughed off the hip meter in 1969.

So what do you do if you're a vocal band like The We Five in 1969. Well, We Five made Catch The Wind. This is a roots album, with, obviously, the Donovan title track, and a Dylan cover, "Tomorrow Is A Long Time."

Does it work. Absolutely. For reasons I don't know, this band went from A&M to Vault. But listening to this, it works perfectly. This is a genuine folk country rock killer album. I am not sure if the move to Memphis, a beehive for soul and country in 1969, has anything to do with how great this album sounds, but the backing tracks have an amazing country grit, real as a handful of dirt. There are horns and other flourishes that you might not hear on a country rock proper album of the era, but to me this adds to the down home yet polished texture of this music.

Which really is not vocal pop, at least in the sense of "You Were On My Mind," the big hit for this band in 1967. Catch The Wind sounds more like We Five are a rock band that just happened to have a large number of really great vocalists. Bands like the Grateful Dead, Mother Earth and Stoneground were doing music like this: roots music but with a lot of vocal layering. None of these bands are ever considered vocal pop.

We Five are smart to treat this music this way. Had they presented this as "We Five Sing Country Rock," it would have all the hipness of a Letterman album would have in 1969. But by dealing with this material as a band and not a vocal group, We Five made an album that sounds fresh, forty one years on.

Great flashback to great music. Clear, distinctive sound, no garble or background noise. Well worth the price for the memories.
