I never knew that The Grass Roots were so prolific! Every time there was a new song, I said "Hey! I know that song!", with a great big smile on my face.
The titles are foolers. Most people are familiar with "TempTation Eyes" and "Sooner Or Later"- but songs like "The River Is Wide" and "Wait A Million years"- I didn't know I knew them intil I heard them again. Very hook-heavy! I sang myself hoarse singing along with this compilation!
This stuff is great. A little bit folk, a little bit rock, a little bit pop.
The anthology is worth the price just for the inclusion of "Mamacita"- one song I HADN'T heard vefore, but haven't stopped playing since.
This is the most played compilation in my collection!
I looked in my BILLBOARD book of top 40 hits. The Grass Roots hit the top 40 fouteen times, and all the hits are here.I recommend this set to any Grass Roots fan or anyone who really wants to hear what 60's pop beyond the Beatles was all about.
They survived the Beatles, The Summer of Love, Altamont, and The time of 'the TV-Bands' (Archies, Partridges, et.al.).
Yes, their time finally did fade but this pricey 2 CD Rhino set is worth the money. I still keep it around for long trips.
The wife enjoys it because she recalls their hits.
There are 2 booklets with this set; one covering early Roots history and the second telling later Roots history in the nicest way possible. [Each booklet has the same cover. Don't think one is an extra. The 2nd booklet is a keeper for the track listings.]
The Grass Roots had 3 lead guitarists and a few keyboard players in their time. Rob Grill is the lone constant.
In The 2nd Booklet there is an informative track listing/history of each song.
The set is chronological. Disc 1 is 1965-1968. Disc 2 is 1969-1975.
The music speaks for itself. All the hits are here and if you don't recognize a song title don't worry---you will recall that song eventually.
Go back to 1968 or 1972. Enjoy

The Grass Roots occupy a curious spot in late 60s/early 70s pop-rock history. Their name, though recognizable, doesn't invoke comparison to some of the greatest bands of that era... Read morePublished on October 6, 2013 by E. Nickel
