This is a review of the whole album, and not just these two songs. Considering the heavier music I listened to at the time, when I picked this album up and found out what it actually sounded like, I could just as easily have given it away to my sister. Instead, I came to like it, a lot.

In spring of 2008, I pulled it out and burned the album to CD. The LP is warped, so I had quite a time getting the needle to track on the first song on each side. However, I prevailed, and after much tweaking to get rid of all the pops and clicks, plus a very meticulous splice to get rid of a skip, I had the album ready for my long commute to work.

Seeing as how the condition of the record was, well... "worn," is a testament to how much I played it.

Back then, the sound reminded me of the Four Seasons, with maybe a touch of the Beach Boys thrown in. This was not hard rock, psychedelic, blues, or anything even close. However, it was good pop music with the accent on the vocals. According to the back cover, the band actually played their instruments, which given the times, was not that common with vocal groups. The one description I remember the most is about how the guitar player was so great, where in actuality, you hardly notice him in the music. His touch is so subtle, it's almost not there at times. In reality, as of many 2008 listens, the guitar is all over the place, but done in such away as he'd never get any notice from other guitar players.

I know every song by heart, and they are all catchy pop tunes. It amazes me that they didn't go further, but I can just imagine that the promotion machines and Uni were concentrating on other acts. They would have been a radio staple, if not for that.

Every song brought back a rush of memory.
