Album Review

Three Dog Night kept up its reputation for putting other artists' songs on the charts with Naturally, one of the group's finest offerings. With Hutton, Wells, and Negron sounding amazingly tight and fluid, they took their soft rock dynamics and mixed them with an abundance of hooks and harmonies to produce three Top 20 singles, eventually earning the band a gold disk. The fresh-sounding "One Man Band" hit number 19 in December of 1970, followed by Three Dog Night's most acclaimed tune, the Hoyt Axton-penned "Joy to the World," which spent six straight weeks at number one, and Russ Ballard's "Liar," which peaked at the number seven spot only four months later. But Naturally's energy stretches far beyond the album's hits, mainly because Three Dog Night managed to carry the spirited groove and boundless, unconfined feeling of the late '60s into the next decade with most of the songs on this album. The peace-and-love aura of past hits like "Eli's Coming" and "Easy to Be Hard" shows up in tracks like "Sunlight" and "Heavy Church," while the remaining cuts are just as forceful, utilizing the trio's bare vocal power to produce some rather eloquent yet intoxicating music. With the help of Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards and Mike Allsup's guitar work, songs like "I Can't Get Enough of It," "Fire Eater," and "I've Got Enough Heartache" keep the album's liveliness afloat by lending some carpeted instrumentation to the front-and-center vocals. The rest of the album is often disregarded because of the strength of Naturally's hits, when in fact this is one of Three Dog Night's most well-rounded contributions.

Customer Reviews

Naturally the Best!

Of all the albums Three Dog Night released, "Naturally" stands out as their best recording. The Jesse Colin-Young penned "Sunlight" sung most eloquently by Chuck Negron was a real standout track, which caught on big time in my home state of Hawaii. The entire second side (on LP) which starts with this track are all winning tunes. "Heavy Church" and "Liar" are a couple of the best rock songs issued by the group, and of course "Joy to the World" is one of Three Dog Night's all time radio classics. Add the original first side with great tracks like "I Can Hear You Calling" and "One Man Band" to it, and you certainly have a solid, all around great album. This one is a natural to get!

One of the most underestimated Bands in Rock History

It is absurd that Three Dog Night is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when other srtists who accomplished far less are. Unfortunately, "Hip musical critics have denegrated TDN, characterising them as a slick, corporate, hit machine and have written them out of Rock History. How could so popular a band, with so many hits be so marginalized? Pioneering Stadium Tours in the early '70s indicates their popularity. While their Top 40 Hits are super, much of their best work is on album tracks that never hit AM Radio. Hard Rock, Soft Rock, Balads, Gosple, Country they did it all well. Naturally is the best all round example of their talents.

Naturally!

This is another band I got into later on in their career.... No doubt they were very talented... Before I even get into giving my review - I just want to say that I am a huge fan of the keyboardist for Three Dog Night - Jimmy Greenspoon... Now with that out of the way, Naturally along with their album Harmony are both very good albums in their own right... they certainly are not their best but good... some fans may disagree with me & that's fine, but if any fans out there are really serious about listening to Three Dog Nights music look no further then their first 3 albums... "One" - "Suitable For Framing" & "It Ain't Easy" are excellent albums... in my opinion better then "Naturally" & "Harmony" ... Not to say that these 2 albums aren't good but if you want Three Dog Night at their very best look into the first three... Right now unfortunately not available on I - Tunes... hopefully soon...

Three Dog Night scored a succession of 21 hit singles, including eleven Top Tens, and twelve consecutive gold albums from 1969 to 1975, thanks to the slick, sometimes soulful vocal harmonies of singers Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells and an excellent ear for quality material. While often criticized as commercial, the band was noted for its creative arrangements and interpretations, and their cover choices gave exposure (and royalties) to several talented songwriters: Nilsson ("One"), Laura...
