5.0 out of 5 stars Clipped Audio Fixed! June 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Earlier reviews of this CD made reference to a problem involving distortion caused by clipping. Well, I'm very pleased to report that Sundazed HAS corrected this problem on all three of the PR&TR CDs they released in 1996. You might still want to be careful, however, when purchasing this CD. Bad copies may still be floating around the marketplace. To distinguish good copies from bad without even removing the cellophane wrapper, look carefully at what name is written directly above (or, in the case of "Something Happening", below) the CBS "eye" logo on the front cover. If it says "Columbia" there, you have a good copy. If it says "Sundazed" there instead, you have an older copy that may be bad.

As for the artistic content of this CD, I think this is The Raiders' finest album. Even "Collage" doesn't pass the repeated-listening test as well as this one. The late Terry Melcher was at the top of his game when he produced this gem. Thank you, Sundazed, for repairing the audio deficiencies in this release.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Album, But..... May 9, 2000
By Kyle T.
Format:Audio CD
...somehow Sundazed screwed up the remastering. Several tracks sound overmodulated. It's the same sound you get when you overload a digital recorder, and I suspect that's what happened somewhere along the line when this CD was made. It is a loud CD. It's frustrating because it's obvious that Sundazed used the session tapes. If not for the added distortion, this would be a great sounding CD from start to finish. If this had happened to one of the Beatles CDs, the problem would have been corrected by now. But since it's "only" a Raiders album, I guess we just have to put up with this sloppiness. By the way, Sundazed did do a "fix" on their "Revolution" CD, which had the same problem. The noise was very obvious on that release, so I guess Sundazed felt they had to redo it. As for the other PRR CD they released in '96, "Something Happening", it has the same problem and apparently no fix has been done. Luckily, some cuts on "Happening" are totally free of the noise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest Raiders album, by far March 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the album I wanted "Headquarters" to be. With all of the retroactive respect generously ladled on various "lesser" 1960s groups nowadays--The Association, the aforementioned Monkees, anything related to Curt Boettcher--it's somewhat surprising that the Raiders haven't experienced a similar hip renaissance. Part of this is likely due to Mark Lindsay's teen idol persona, or the fact that the Raiders' career trajectory goes from deeply respectable (they started out as a fierce little pre-Beatles Northwest rock band) to very, very mainstream.

If the Raiders ever do get their due, though, this album will be at the epicenter. To be sure, the Raiders had released plenty of quality output--and not just on singles--before Spirit of '67. But never before and never after would the band hit a consistently high standard of quality.

Yes, to a certain degree the album is prefab (studio musicians make up the bulk of the instrumentalists, and producer Terry Melcher compositionally assists a few tracks), but it hardly matters; the songs are excellent, the playing convincing, and the attitude still intact. The two big hits ("Hungry" and "Good Thing") are excellent, but everything else is pretty spot-on as well, from the Stonesy "The Great Airplane Strike" to the best-Eleanor-Rigby-alike-tune-EVER "Undecided Man." Not nearly enough praises have been sung about "All About Her," where Lindsay gives one of his best performances. And while Mark dominates the proceedings, the other members get their vocal turns as well, and "Why? Why? Why?" is Fang's best showcase with the group.

Again, this is the album I wanted "Headquarters" to be. It's inconsequential, doesn't make a statement, and is a bit silly (the "Indian drone" on Arabian Nights). This matters not one bit, as "Spirit of '67," short as it may be, is one of the most enjoyable albums of the mid sixties. If you're going to buy one Raiders album, make this it.

3.0 out of 5 stars As I remember.... April 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Were they the darlings of the radical left? Did they dictate new trends in society? Did the press hang on their every spoken word? Well,no.Did they rock? Well,yes they did! I liked them because they could blend rock with pop,put on a great show and not appear too "Monkey-ish." Although,this album came out the same year as the epic Beatles' Sgt.Pepper - there would be little use in comparing the two.Still,I like it."The Great Airplane Strike" was a stereo dream,two distinct guitars from each speaker.A roaring jet engine that sent the cat wildly searching for cover,my parents looking up to the sky.I liked it."Our Candidate" was a good old rocker,that lent itself easily to a young guitar player;searching for those three chords was a continuing pleasure."Louise" could,and should have been a single;"In My Community" almost as worthy...and even somewhat hip to a Beatle song theme.(of that era)Some of the stuff was clearly just filling space ("Why,Why,Why?" "1001 Arabian Nights") Still,there was some power pop,mixed with some interesting works as well as the basic Raider Rock 'N Roll. The hits "Good Thing" "Hungry" and my favorite,"The Great Airplane Strike";as I remembered it as an album...and now as a C.D.- I still like it.
