One of the lesser lights of the late-'60s Bosstown Sound, Front Page Review recorded one unissued album in 1968 that was planned for release on MGM, but wouldn't surface until 30 years later. Guitarist and singer Steve Cataldo wrote all of the material for the group, which played minor-league, minor-keyed brooding psychedelia. Like many Boston groups, they were heavy on the weedy electric keyboards, and like most of the Bosstown acts, they didn't offer much in the way of imagination or idiosyncrasy to make them stand out from the psychedelic crowd. After Front Page Review broke up, Cataldo did a solo album for ABC, and then hitched onto the new wave by forming the Nervous Eaters, who made a couple of LPs. Front Page Review's album was finally unearthed for CD release in 1997. ~ Richie Unterberger
