New York City’s The Left Banke had their share of inner strife, but in the late ’60s the band made an incredible body of baroque-pop (led mostly by Steve Martin-Caro’s honeyed voice) that sidled up nicely to The Bee Gees and The Zombies. This set collects the teen band’s two albums and non-LP singles. There’s mad garage riffing (“I Haven’t Got the Nerve”), guitar fuzz-bombing (“Lazy Day”), and a country-esque sing-along (“What Do You Know”). There’s also sweet syrupy jangle (“She May Call You Up Tonight”), shimmering melancholy (“Dark Is the Bark”), and a brass-enhanced Burt Bacharach doppelganger (“In the Morning Light”). You can’t escape the hypnotic beauty of the hits “Pretty Ballerina” and “Walk Away Renee,” with their mournful strings and intricate three-part harmonies, nor the stunner “Desiree,” whose intricately arranged harmonies and horns resemble The Association at their best.
Thank you iTunes for finally having the original versions of "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina" available. Great songs from a great band who unfortunately, did not stay together long enough to show their true potential.
five stars to itunes for finally getting it
Joining the throng here, having scrounged for Renee and Ballerina for years (I even got the karaoke one in a fit of longing)---thanks to itunes (is Ricky Lee Jones' Renee from the EP here? I didn't check, but that's a great one). Also, misty-eyed fans shoulld check out the scratchy, moon-transmissionish video of Left Banke performing outdoors.....
Thank you for this!!!...And thanks to the people who give reviews so I made sure to buy the right one...
