Let me mention here that I was living in a town of three thousand and the only way to get some music was to order the music through a drug store... And they had to look through a catalog about the size of an unabridged English dictionary.
A year or so later, I listened to "Good Time Rock and Roll" on KFI out of San Francisco (again listening to skip. In fact they had a vocal drop in mentioning KFI in the song which to this day I don't know if it was the band or studio singers. I know this doesn't make much difference but back in the day some bands would, for extra money, personalize songs for some big stations).
Now I realize I did not give you any information about the album and band rather I took you down memory lane. After all isn't that what radio is all about, the soundtrack of your life?
The rating comes in with this: IF you want or love good old-fashioned rock music you will not be disappointed. The music is upbeat, and the vocals are tight. Flash had the potential to be bigger than the Beach Boys, but for some fluke in history they did not. You owe it to yourself to hear what might have been. I bought the CD when the price dropped from over $70 to a more reasonable price, I bought the MP3 music when I realized I couldn't find my CD after a move. Yes it is that good.
The classic harmonies and neat guitars and (backing sax) on such tracks as "Time Will Tell" "You Sat Right There" "I Wish Youd Dance" & "Good Times, Rock & Roll" are almost instantly ingrained from the first listen.
With the addition of bonus tracks "Did You Boogie(With your Baby)" and "See My Baby Jive". A classic album of Rock & Roll as performed in the '70's. My only question, why has it taken so long to get this onto CD?
If you like it why not have a listen to the Australian band from the same era, Ol'55.

There's a song or two I don't care for when the band gets too rock 'n' roll, but the rest of it makes for the best beach music album ever. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Rick Ollerman
