The title of my review is borrowed from the posters Ron Wood painted advertising club gigs by The Birds - it's as apt a description of the music they made as any I can think of.
The Birds (1964 - 67) are certainly a historical curiosity, most noteably as Ron Wood's first band until he left the nest in January 1967 for superstardom with The Jeff Beck Group, Faces, and for the past 33 years, The Rolling Stones. Another founding member, bassist Kim Gardner, achieved a modicum of fame as a member of the legendary Creation (to be joined, for a few months, by Wood). But though the group's output was rather slim - three singles for Decca in 1964-65, a fourth on Reaction in 1966 - this superb compilation makes a case that they were more than a footnote, that in fact they were one of the most exciting bands of their too-brief time. This set collects all the bands singles, cancelled singles, unissued tracks, and a few alternate versions. The set begins with their powerful debut, Wood's "You're On My Mind," b/w a primal, incendiary version of Bo Diddley's "You Don't Love Me," (issued November 1964). This was followed by the oft-covered (but never better than here) Motown fave "Leaving Here" (which Ron revisisted on his 2002 solo cd, "Not For Beginners") backed with another Wood original, "Next In Line." These tracks show just why the Yardbirds occasionally used Ron Wood to fill in when Keith Relf was ailing - his slashing guitar and energetic harmonica would add to any rave-up, even though (amazingly) he was only 17 years old (and 19 when he left to join the Beck Group)! The Birds' third single represents a massive leap forward in terms of sheer raw power and authority.

The Birds were a great Mod heavy R & B influenced act, similar to the Pretty Things, Fairies, The Who, and similar mid-60's groups. Unfortunately, they didn't record much material or last long, so you get a lot of alternate versions of the same songs on this collection. Despite that, this is essential music, brimming with energy and youthful Mod swagger. Their version of "Leaving here" is crunchier and much more energetic than the Who's version. They also do a cover of "Run run run" which you'd swear is The Who. Most of the songs are pretty straightforward: blues structure, distored guitar, primitive, simplistic drumming. But you also get the unabashed Mod-pop of "Say those magic words," some near psychedelia, and even a stab a twee-pop ("Granny rides again"). As a bonus you get a track they performed in the B-movie (Bee movie?) "The Deadly Bees," which is taken directly from the movie soundtrack and has voiced-over dialogue from characters in the movie! All in all this is of great historical interest to fans of mid-60's rock, Stones/Ron Wood fans (Wood was the lead guitarist), as well as just being great rock 'n' roll.

This fantastic collection brings together all 4 of The Birds long out of print and extremely rare 1964-1965 Decca singles, along with 10 unreleased demos, alternate takes, and unissued rarities, all painstakingly restored to digital brilliance. The first track features The Birds first single "You're on My Mind", and sets the mood for a hard rocking British R&B Mersey beat sound similar to the early Beatles, The Stones, The Who, and The Pretty Things. In fact, young guitarist Ron Wood would later go on to greater fame in The Creation, The Faces, and the Rolling Stones. But it is in The Birds that Woody was part of an aesthetic rock'n'roll perfection featuring raw guitars, soulful bluesy singing, wailing harmonica, and primitive pounding drums - in short a proper driving energetic rock'n'roll sound that will soon have you shaking like its 1966. All of these fantastic elements are put brilliantly into great songs, such as the blazing singles "No Good Without You Baby" and "Say Those Magic Words". Also recommended but harder to find is "The Clarion Singles Collection", a British import EP that compiles another 3 Birds singles released on the Clarion label.

Every once in a while you buy a CD, never having heard the group before and hoping that it will contain at least a couple decent songs. This was one of those rare CD's that is packed with excellent songs. Any fan of rare 60's Brit R&B must buy this CD. It is without a doubt a musical investment that you will never regret.

I really enjoyed listening to this CD - a really great find. Ron Wood, Kim Gardner and Ali Mackenzie stand out as terrific, distinctive musicians here. Crunchy, grinding, and punky, the Birds easily draw comparisons to the early Who and Small Faces, and in some ways surpass them when interpreting Motown standards. The Birds are one of those bands like the Misunderstood and the Creation that could've gone far had luck been on their side. At least eight of these tracks should be made available for ... customers in 30 second download format.

I was amazed by how good this compilation was!! Anybody who likes sixties british invasion/garage will enjoy this cd!Ron Wood(faces,stones) & Kim Gardner(the creation)are in this band. They are too good to be as unknown as they are. I would love to have their stuff on vinyl someday, but damn...it's so expensive. Heh, I'm watching......
