Caveat Emptor - Re-Recordings Here...

Re-recordings of five of their songs, plus four cover songs. Give it a careful listen before spending your hard earned money.

Hidden Gems

This is a surprise, and a pleasant one to anyone who's familiar with the Association. Their music, with timeless classics like Cherish, Windy, and Along Comes Mary, is melodic, harmonious and a joy to listen to. The 4 covers are quite decent and show a little different side of the band, again for those familiar. Although there's not a lot of depth, the simple studio recording shows off their superior harmonic skills quite well. The five Association standards are quite interesting given they are studio remakes, so you get a little different perspective on each one. These guys were great in the studio and even better in concert. This is fun, give it a listen.
