And while few other of the Choir's tracks reach the extreme heights of "It's Cold Outside," this compilation, based on tracks spanning 1966 through 1969, shows that they did have more to offer. A good deal of this follows in the footsteps of The Beau Brummels, with complex harmonies matched by a rock 'n' roll backbeat. Shades of the Nightcrawlers, Left Banke, Hollies and others can also be heard.
Most of this is previously unreleased material, including a host of demos. The sound quality is good throughout, though its clear that the compilers had to go to a lot of effort to make it all presentable.
Though the mid-60s were filled with competent garage bands, few had the yearning pop touch of The Choir, as this disc so ably demonstrates.
Sad to say, the bulk of The Choir's output never matched their great song; nor - by virtue of dishonest agents and managers - did they reap even the feeble benefits of the song.
A great reminder that CLEVELAND ROCKS!
