A much more sensible buy than the double-CD Legend of Paul Revere, this 20-track compilation focuses on their toughest (and therefore best) early material. Has all the big early hits, and about half the songs weren't on Legend, most notably their fine pre-Monkees version of "Steppin' Stone." Note that the version of "Hungry" here is an alternate take, good or bad news depending on whether you have the original hit rendition already.
This album is so much fun - not only does it have their hits but it also has a few songs that many people have never heard, like Crisco Party/Walking the Dog. I collect the Raiders music and they did so many great songs and albums there is always something new to add to the collection. This one is great. Mark Lindsay is such an incredible talent, and I am so happy to see him touring again. His new CD, "Life Out Loud" is brilliant (2013). All new music, co-written by Mark - and the man still rocks it out. If you haven't already, get the CD and check out Mark on FaceBook.
Don't lie to me.
This album features all of Paul Revere and The Raiders' Columbia singles from "Louie, Louie" up to "Him or Me - What's It Gonna Be?", plus the best of their album tracks. Great stuff. There is a bonus track after the last song, which is a radio commercial for one of their albums.
Even more groovy
This is also the right album to get with even more original recordings
