This album tracks through--seamless, an unusual honor for a record company to bestow on a band that wasn't delivering anything but regional hits.
Their coda...this is the Shames at their absolute best. No more needs to be said. Buy their three albums...do it now.
These guys played out of the sheer love of music...and that's how you'll appreciate it.

In the mid to late 1960's, Chicago was a boom town for bands that broke nationally-The Buckinghams, Spanky and Our Gang, The New Colony Six, The Ides Of March, The American Breed, and The Shadows Of Knight.
Although their national success didn't quite match those groups, the Cryan' Shames were hugely popular in the Chicago area and the upper Midwest and received lots of airplay on local radio. Their three Columbia LP releases were essential records of the time if you lived in the area.
Their last album, "Synthesis", is part of the Sundazed reissue series of the group's catalog. It features the original eleven song line-up (along with six single or mono versions of those tracks) and two songs previously unavailable on album.
It's always been a mystery why leader James Fairs' final contribution to the group, "First Train To California", wasn't a monster hit single. It featured an exciting vocal performance by the group and interesting production. Other highlights include the hard edged "Greenburg, Glickstein, Charles, David Smith & Jones"; the percussive "20th Song"; a country styled "Your Mother Should Know"/Beatle homage entitled "It's All Right"; the moody "Baltimore Oriole"; a vocal workout on "Let's Get Together"; and Lenny Kerley's ultra romantic "Your Love". The two special bonus tracks are a Poco flavored "Bits and Pieces" and a cover of Nilsson's "The Rainmaker".
As was always true with the Shames' work, the vocal work and musicianship is top notch.

Bought the album for Greenburg, Glickstein Charles David Smith and Jones because it did not appear on the so called greatest hits release. Get it twice here and it sounds great each time. Their version of the Youngbloods Let's Get Together I could have done without. Nice memories for me. Lots of fun to listen to.
