Long out of print and for the first time on one CD, Raven presents two classic albums by the highly regarded New York group STORIES - Stories (1972) and About Us (1973). Led by songwriters Michael Brown (who had already tasted fame with The Left Banke during the 1960s) and the golden-voiced Ian Lloyd, Stories brief but vibrant history is encapsulated in these two legendary records. The debut, Stories, combined the baroque intricacies of Brown's former group, The Left Banke, with a contemporary rock aesthetic. Their sound was still more pop than rock and comparisons with the Beatles, Badfinger and the Raspberries are inevitable. Includes the US Top 30 hit single 'I'm Coming Home'. About Us is the band's tour de force, full of masterful pop songs, straight ahead rock and classically inspired art-rock vignettes. It also contains their US #1 hit, 'Brother Louie', a ripping cover of the Hot Chocolate song. As a bonus we've added Stories rare, final single from 1974, 'Another Love', on CD for the first time. These recordings will appeal to fans of inventive and tuneful pop/rock melodies with power-pop influenced vocal harmonies and classical/baroque keyboard flourishes. With 77 minutes of superb quality audio, plus color booklet featuring detailed liner notes and period photos.

Ironically I love that song now, but when I was a kid it was played to death on every top 40 radio station and absolutely hated it.
Ah but with age comes wisdom, and what a brilliant track that is, can't compare it with anything new today, that's for darn sure.
As for the rest of the disc it contains both of their albums.
The first have is more piano driven and the second has more guitars.
And the songs are well written & definitely well played.
So totally aside from the the one & only massive hit single, the rest of the disc reminds me of a cross between the Beatles, Bad Finger, Big Star, The Babys, etc.
Not bad at all, give it a chance you may like it.
