PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS (366)

Evolution to Revolution: 5 Classic Albums 1965-67 (Double CD) RVCD-366

On a great value Double CD, Raven presents Evolution to Revolution: 5 Classic Albums (1965-67) by one of the most popular and successful American groups of the 1960s – PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS. The essential core of their Columbia Records output, Here They Come! (1965), Just like Us! (1965), Midnight Ride (1966), The Spirit of ‘67 (1966) and Revolution! (1967) are among the best records issued during the era. Fronted by charismatic lead singer Mark Lindsay, the energetic and prolific Raiders racked up 14 Top 40 US hit singles and as resident act on ABC-TV’s Where the Action Is and Happening made hundreds of television appearances to rival The Monkees for sheer prime-time appeal. Their brash and exuberant hits between 1965 and 1967 (‘Steppin’ Out’, ‘Just like Me’, ‘Kicks’, ‘I’m Not Your Stepping Stone’, ‘Hungry’, ‘Good Thing’, ‘Him or Me – What’s It Gonna Be’) were “bold, unpretentious slices of ‘60s rock & roll with a defiant, punky edge” – All Music Guide.

Under the direction of producer Terry Melcher, the Raiders were also masters at covering tough R&B songs such as ‘Night Train’ and ‘Doggone’ and British Invasion classics including the Stones’ ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ and the Animals’ ‘I’m Crying’. In addition ‘Why? Why? Why? (Is it So Hard)’, ‘Undecided Man’, ‘Tighter’ and ‘The Great Airplane Strike’ were fine examples of their quasi-psychedelic eclecticism. Following the group’s inclusion on the essential Nuggets box set and a reassessment of their albums the Raiders have been elevated to their rightful place among the pantheon of America’s greatest groups. With 57 songs, 150 minutes of superb audio, 12-page color booklet and detailed liner notes.
