  • The high points of this collection definitely puts it into the must buy category of any 60’s music afficianado. They are The Scot Richard Case (early SRC)recordings of not one but 2! Pretty Things covers plus a version of I’m So Glad which easily equals The Cream. Their original song Who is That Girl and cover of The Who’s Cobwebs and Strange are great also. The 2 MC5 recordings sound better than ever especially the fabulous Borderline.Iggy Pop lays down the blueprint for his fine singing voice which we all know and love on I’m a Man. But the “Big” find has to be a group called Half-Life whose song Get Down actually gives the MC5 a run for their money (Please! there has to be a full album by these guys somewhere). Oh,did I forget the great demo version of The Frost’s Mystery Man. The rest is less hard rock type music(more Hollies and Zombies,there’s even a great cover of Time of the Season) but I’m sure it’ll sink into my subconscious eventually. An all around fantastic compilation that really makes me drool thinking about The Rationals collection that’s on the way. To hear these classics from the original master tapes instead of from crummy sounding bootlegs will be a wonder to behold!
