4.0 out of 5 stars Hi, this is John Brumage September 21, 2004
By Zeke
Format:Audio CD
I was the co producer (with Phil Grenhard) of the original Roayal Guardsman singles, and the first album.

I wanted to point out that the original recordings were layered by dubbing between two 2-track reel to reel machines. The "ping pong" stereo in not a stupid remix, it is the way the original masters sounded when thety were sent to new york for mastering.

Our little studio, Charles Fuller Productions, in tampa, florida, did not have any High-End audio stuff, so we sent everything "dry" to the label. The music track was created first, overdubbed a few times, then the vocals were layered on the second track. I seem to recall there are eight layers of overdubbing on SVRB.

I built most of the equipment from scratch, and created some of the sound effects, one of my favorites being the "bone biting" sounds in BEARS, which was a mouthful of potato chips!

Those were exciting days, i was 26 years old at the time, and travelled with the RG and another band "NOAH'S ARK" to engagements in central florida. If you have seen the movie "almost famious" you have an idea what it was like.

This was Vietnam Draft days, and the guys in the band were on all on college deferrment, so they didn't dare miss classes, so they were severely limited in the anount of travel.

One interesting side note, Most of the original songs by the RG were written by Richard Holler, who also write "Abraham, Martin, and John" he had a discipline for writing: Buy a newspaper every Day, write a song about SOMETHING in the newspaper. I recommend this to every songwriter i know.

Ok, enough blathering, i do not make a penny of royalties from sale of these records but i wanted to share a tiny bit of the history of these songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely better than the "Anthology". June 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Those disappointed in the One Way "Anthology" on The Royal Guardsmen may want to pick up this disc. It contains the RG's first two LPs in their entirety and is a considerable improvement in sound quality. Actually, in some ways it makes a good companion to "Anthology" because while most of the tracks on that disc are mono, everything on this disc is true stereo. The RG's first album, "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" is presented first, opening with the classic title track. The rest of the album is okay being mostly filled out with cover versions of novelty hits of the day. These are performed well but not essential. The other two standout cuts on the "Vs." album are the RG's hit cover of The Young Rascals' "Baby Let's Wait" (and it's the first time I can recall hearing it in stereo on compact disc) and the Guardsmen original, "Sweetmeats Slide" which served as the b-side of the "Return of The Red Baron" 45. The next LP presented is the more interesting of the two. "Snoopy and His Friends" contains all three of the original "Snoopy" hits, each prefaced by a story presented as a radio broadcast, even though the stories are about World War I, "when radio didn't actually exist to tell the story" as the liner notes point out. The stereo mix of "Return of the Red Baron" is a little annoying, being instruments on one channel and vocals on the other. The second half of "Friends" is six excellent Guardsmen originals including "So Right" and "It Kinda Looks Like Christmas" both making their CD debut. The sound of the "Friends" LP is not quite as bright as the "Vs." LP but it's still good. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars "Lousy remastering of a good album!!!" July 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe that anything remastered this badly could ever be released!!! On the "Snoopy and his Friends" half of the CD,a big piece of the beginning of "Snoopy Vs.The Red Baron" is missing from the song!!! Does anyone check these things out before they come out?!!! Apparently not!!! It's bad enough that fans like me wait for a certain LP to come out on CD only to get stuck with a shoddy job like this,but it also means that as long as a piece of ... like this is on the market,it will take that much longer before it is re-released and done RIGHT...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good CD February 7, 2004
By ddipas
Format:Audio CD
Having read the other reviews of this cd, particularly the ones denigrating its sound quality, I was a little reluctant to buy it. However, I wasn't disappointed.
I found the sound quality to be very good. Not great, but very good. I know that some people don't care for that "ping-pong" stereo of that era (the vocals in one channel and the instruments in the other), but it is in stereo. And it's very difficult to find "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" and "Snoopy's Christmas" in stereo. Some reviewers have commented that the beginning of "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" is clipped. However, bear in mind that the song appears twice on this cd. It's the opening track, which sounds great and is not clipped at all. And it's also track 14, which is supposed to be a segue from track 13. I can't vouch for what the segue sounded like on the original 1967 album, but I'll admit it's not a very smooth transition here.
Six out of eight of the Royal Guardsmen's Hot 100 hits are on this disc. The only hits missing are "Wednesday" and "Snoopy For President", so you could consider this a greatest hits cd. Recommended.
