So, yeah, I was a fan of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. I liked enough of their songs that I bought a couple of their vinyl albums and a couple of singles with picture sleeves. By chance I even saw Gary Puckett in the mid '80s when he was on the bill with the Turtles' Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman and the reformed Mamas and Papas (or maybe it was the Association) in a package tour of popular '60s artists (and yes, Puckett sounded great then, too, as did they all that night).
In the Digital Age I'd bought two of the Union Gap's "hits" CDs. Make that three. Because without question, this is the most comprehensive anthology -- and perhaps more important, the best-sounding anthology -- of their work yet. You get all the essential hits, the great B-sides and the fan-favorite album tracks. Soundwise the other anthologies I bought were a bit flat; I had to crank up the volume to work the speakers. And doing so just spotlighted how poorly the discs were remastered. This one is clear and crisp and it rocks. So whether you already have other GP and the Union Gap anthologies or you're finally ready to pop for one, you slowpoke, THIS is the CD to get. But don't just take my word for it; J. Strausser was here first and told you the truth. (By the way, I have numerous other CDs on the Repertoire label -- U.S. and U.K. artists alike -- and they all sound VERY good.)
