Album Review

Hip-O's Ultimate Collection: The Complete Hits will likely be too much music for most audiences, simply because most listeners don't remember much more than "Love Will Keep Us Together," "Muskrat Love," and "Do That to Me One More Time" from Captain & Tennille. They actually had many more hits than that — 11 more, four of which hit the Top Ten, actually (for the record, they are "The Way I Want to Touch You," "Lonely Night (Angel Face)," "Shop Around," and "You Never Done It Like That"). All of them are here, along with several other singles and album tracks on this generous 22-track collection. To be frank, Captain & Tennille weren't quite varied or deep enough to make this collection not lose steam toward the middle, but the highlights — the three Neil Sedaka-penned tunes ("Love Will Keep Us Together," "Lonely Night (Angel Face)," "You Never Done It Like That,") plus "Do That to Me One More Time" — are all very good, standing proudly amongst soft rock hits of the time. Still, all of these can be better heard on a more concise collection, since a shorter running time makes Captain & Tennille sound like more consistent hitmakers. Although some listeners will prefer to have this more thorough overview, the number of tracks on Ultimate Collection reveals that the duo could only occasionally put it across the plate.

Customer Reviews

Thank God for Captain & Tennille

You know, I've been listening to all of these hits lately - repeatedly - and I've been enjoying more than just happy memories. I've been really loving the idea that there was a time when this kind of light, gentle pop music actually had an esteemed place in our society. Today when a woman singing about her "humps" passes for acceptable pop, there's something so refreshing and wonderful about love songs and light, upbeat, melodic pop. The craftsmanship of every single song on this CD is immaculate, and it goes without saying that Toni Tennille's vocal is one in a million. There's a reason these songs struck a chord before sincerity became outlawed and society's penchant for smug self-satisfaction made it impossible for Captain & Tennille to get arrested, much less played on the radio. It's our loss, truly. This is good music, good on all levels. I'm thrilled to have it in my collection.

Look in my heart and let love...

I absolutely love the song "Love will Keep us Together." It's definitely a classic and it was also featured on an episode of Will and Grace when they were having a "piano party." It's a mood-lifter! Au naturel!

Classic Pop

Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon made some great pop music and most of their best songs are found here. Love Will Keep Us Together is, of course, a classic. I only wish they were still recording.
