I've never been a fan of "Greatest Hits" and "Best of" packages - I'd prefer to have the original albums, and decide for myself which are the "best" selections. Pozo-Seco compilations often neglect worthwhile compositions such as the comely `She Understands Me' and the inspiring `Johnny.' Time and I Can Make It Without You are two delectable albums by a group who ignored social and political controversy, but instead focused their musical outlook on innocence and relationships.
Technical Note: The overall sound quality of these two albums is radiant. As usual, Collectors' Choice has done an excellent job searching the Columbia archives for quality master recordings.
Williams of course went on to bigger and better things in a C&W vein but unfortunately Susan Taylor seems to have faded into obscurity. In any case, this CD would definitely be in my "stranded on a desert isle" backpack.
There is a good mix of original songs and covers. They had a series of minor American pop hits - they never made the top 30, but they came close a couple of times. Their hits were Time, I'll be gone, I can make it with you and Look what you've done.
The covers include If I fell (Beatles), Come a little bit closer (Jay and the Americans). Guantanamera (Sandpipers), Silver threads and golden needles (originally recorded by Wanda Jackson, but later an American pop hit for the Springfields, with Dusty as lead singer), House of the rising sun (most famously a big hit for the Animals, though their version was also a cover), She understands me (which I first heard sung by Teresa Brewer as He understands me, although I think the original singer was Johnny Tillotson), You've lost that loving feeling (Righteous brothers), If I were a carpenter, Almost persuaded (David Houston), Ribbon of darkness (Gordon Lightfoot) and Louisiana man.
If you enjoy mellow sixties folk music, particularly by the Brothers four, you will enjoy this.
