When I was a little girl, my mom used to sing along to a song called "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" whenever it came on the radio. For years I wondered if I'd only imagined it, but rediscovered it quite by accident on You Tube when I was looking at New Seekers videos. Having found another video for "Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum," I decided to buy this 3-disc set. Guess what? I'm not sorry!

Now, true, "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" is ABBA-esque at first, but it sounds more like the Sweet's "Little Willy" upon closer inspection. Also, "Bottom's Up" definitely has a New Seekers vibe, but I think it's a bit more fun. Bottom line: this quartet was a really talented and grossly overlooked unit! Mixing R&B, bubblegum, and very good, straight ahead light rock, this group boasted fabulous musicianship, great harmonies, and an exceptional female lead voice in Sally Carr.

This is so worth the trouble to purchase, because they do a way better version of "Yellow River" than Christy, a great Bugaloos resemblant track called "We Are the Founders of All That's Around Us," and fabulous covers of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough (in both Italian and English)" and "Superstar" from the Andrew Lloyd Weber classic. "Sacramento" is great catchy pop while "Love Sweet Love" is a slice of country rock heaven. "Soley Soley" is pure latin inspired ambrosia while "Louise (My Little Ship)" is just plain adorable and imaginative.

I think Drive On was probably their weakest album, but it also has some great tracks, particularly "Honey No" which sounds very remeniscent to McCartney and Wings' "Hi, Hi, Hi." Actually, I like most everything on here except "Queen Bee" and the eerily BeeGee-like "Universal Man.

Yeah, it's 70's Europop, but with a twist. Four Scottish musicians wind up in Italy and make hit singles across Europe, but have trouble getting them in their homeland. Finally they do, but they don't ever seem to get their break in the USA. Then another band that sounds a lot like them comes along and takes the world by storm. That's Middle of the Road, who show off their chops with these three RCA Italy albums from 1970-73. Better songs might have helped, but their three big hits ("Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep", "Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum", "Soley, Soley") are augmented by a number of fine ballads, Euro-sing-alongs and rockers. Listen to them and you hear ABBA, but these discs were years before the Swedes came along. And, there's something to be said for a band that can rock with marimbas, bagpipes and flutes! Sally Carr, Ken Andrew and the McCredie brothers deserved a better fate here.

Nice and very nostlagic. The voice is unique and the instruments and their handling were superb. One reason for the three statrs is probabaly the selection on this particular compilation. If you remove Chirpy ,Chirpy, Delilah , Sacramento and Tweedle from the two CD'S you will be hard pressed to find other tunes on this compilation that will generate excitments. All thesame I listened to all and I should probably give it a four star.....
