Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded mono edition of this 1967 album from the Sunshine Pop act including bonus tracks. Insight Out, The Association's third LP, sported two of the biggest singles of the band's career: 'Windy' and 'Never My Love.' Produced by Bones Howe (5th Dimension, The Turtles, Elvis Presley), Insight Out showcased The Association at the commercial peak of their powers. This edition features the original mono mix of the album, which has been out of print since 1967. The 16-page, full-color booklet includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members. Now Sounds.

Great Association Album, enjoyed all the songs.
Larry Burns
Larry Ramos is probably still kicking himself that he got to ditch the New Christy Minstrels and join this band.

This album brings back some of my most vivid childhood memories.

With the temporary departure of singer/guitarist Jules Alexander, with his vacancy being filled by Larry Ramos (who still fronts the touring version of the band with Russ Giguere to this day), The Association struck commercial gold with their third album, 1967's "Insight Out," one of their most classic releases. It's got the group's biggest hit on it, the sunny #1 smash "Windy" (written for the band by a young female friend), as well as the all-time Wedding Day favorite, "Never My Love" (which reached #2). But these aren't the only great songs on the album---there's the ragtime rock of "Wasn't It A Bit Like Now," the dreamy "On A Quiet Night," the bouncy pop of "When Love Comes To Me," the rockin' "Reputation," the sitar-flavored pop-rock of "Wantin' Ain't Gettin'," and the totally powerful anti-war number, "Requiem For The Masses." Fabulous songs, performances, and vocal harmonies. When it comes to 60's "sunshine pop," there's nobody better than The Association. "Insight Out" is outstanding.

Just listened to this again today--this is the Association's third album, and it includes the hits "Windy" ("Everyone Knows It's...") and "Never My Love", which are great and most certainly everyone of a certain age knows them by heart. Despite the expected datedness of the disc, this is a very unassuming, pleasant listen. Here the group stretches out a bit, not composing as much for the harmonies of the whole group as much as they did on their first two records; there's more unison singing and solo backed up by group. The only clunky one, I think, is the opener "Wasn't It a Bit Like Now (Parallel '23)", which goes back and forth between modern rock and music hall style--must have seemed odd even then (why 1923?). Two really nice Jim Yester songs: one of his best ballads, "On a Quiet Night" (lovely instrumental coda and fade-out) and the uptempo "When Love Comes to Me". The music carries the songs that tend toward the overly treacly or dramatic, such as "Happiness Is", which I scoffed at early on, only to be hooked by the really catchy melody later, and "Requiem for the Masses", unless you really get into bullfight tragedies (plus, those words: "Mama, Mama, forget your pies/have faith they won't get cold"). There's Brian singing the bluesy "Reputation" (I can see the go-go girls dancing in the cages now), and "Sometime" is one of my favorite songs on the album; again, scoff, but I think Ted's cascading drum fill throughout is really distinctive for the song, and makes it all the more memorable. Again, it's good that this stuff is available SOMEWHERE on CD. Surprising how many really popular groups of the time are now so pitifully underrepresented.

Wow! This album brings back some of my most vivid childhood memories. With the exception of "Reputation", every song on this album is such a great masterpiece. Starting with "Wasn't It A Bit Like Now", an uptempo, 1920's throw-back, in a rock capsule, the song gets the CD going in fine fashion. I just love the lyrics, even though the modern part of the song is now so severely dated. Next , the tempo is simmered into a beautiful and reflective ballad, "On a Quiet Night". Jim Yester's voice is perfect for this lonely, late at night piece. It reminded me of the summer nights I spent on my Grandmother's farm back in the '60's. "We Love Us" is a pleasant ballad sung by Ted the drummer and Larry Ramos, the new guy in the band.(Ted is not one of the stronger vocalists of the Association, but the song is still soothing.) "When Love Comes to Me" is a mid-tempo love song that really grows on you. Terry Kirkman has a nice recorder solo in the middle of the song and then again at the fade. What can I say about "Windy"? Does 60's pop get much better than this?

"Reputation" sung by Brian Cole is the only dud song on the CD. It just doesn't fit.

Side two starts with the beautiful ballad, "Never My Love".

Oh, what harmonies! "Happiness Is" is the ultimate sunshine, "HAPPY" song that reflects the beach and those groovy times of the 60's. Russ sings on the next piece which is a middle of the road pop song. His voice is quite unique. Tha next song,"Wantin' Ain't Gettin'" is a sitar driven, psych-pop song that makes no sense. (Their version of the Strawberry Alarm Clock) and the album finishes with the masterpiece, "Requiem for the Masses". There are some real top rate harmonies in this tragic story. I never did get the message that was portrayed when I was 11 years old.

Never My Love? That is one of the absolute greatest songs ever written and they nail it. I think it is in Paul McCartney's top 2 along with God Only Knows by the Beach Boys. You can't be in better company than that. This is pop perfection at it's finest. The reverberating guitar, the Wurlitzer, the organ, and the absolutely flawless, beautiful vocals make this song an achievement that will not sound dated even 100 years from now. Windy is another piece of pop perfection. Maybe more a product of the late 60's but again it stands the test of time completely. Larry Ramos is probably still kicking himself that he got to ditch the New Christy Minstrels and join this band. Jules Alexander is probably still kicking himself for leaving for India during this album too. That The Association is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a reflection on what a sham it is as an institution.

If you are thinking that maybe you just need the greatest hits, listen to song samples of this album of songs like Reputation and Wantin' Ain't Gettin'. Even if you only know the 2 hits mentioned at the beginning of my review and maybe Requiem For the Masses, this is great music that is meant to be heard in hi fidelity. Don't waste the experience with just an MP3 version off of iTunes.
