Past and Present
 
Past and Present Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $10.00
Artist: The Spindles
 
 
Quantity:
 

Inspired by Chicago power poppers and British Invasion bands, The Spindles have released a fine debut that oozes with hints of The Hollies, The Raspberries and a few actual Elvis Brothers.  There’s a cover of Graham Gouldman’s “Look Through Any Window” (a hit for The Hollies) and two songs by the aforementioned brothers Elvis.  Brad, Graham and Rob Elvis make appearances here as well.  One is “Young Heart, a Brad Elvis-penned original that the Elvis Brothers never officially released.   Bill Corston, the bassist for Jay and the Americans, also plays on many of the tracks.If you are a fan of the music of the 60's and 70's, you will love this album. With the very first song it establishes a high bar that it lives up to first track to last. Every song is a great slice of Liverpool meets L.A. pop. There is no filler here.  Most albums have hills and valleys and often throw on filler at the end. The Spindles keep their foot firmly on the gas pedal throughout. The last three songs are the best rockers, especially the original, ‘Annette’ and their cover of the Elvis Brothers’ ‘Santa Fe’!” – Tim Schubert  “From the outset, the harmonies are really, really strong.  All of the songs are well written and very catchy. Nothing exemplifies this more than opener ‘Prisoner of War’.  With the requisite jangle and hooky chorus to make it an 80’s hit, this one is as radio friendly as it gets.  ‘Peace with the Past’ and ‘Mrs. Miller’ follow as similarly melodic, very catchy tracks. The songs are a bit more up tempo and even more pleasing from there on out. ‘Annette’ and ‘If I Fall in Love’ would have made good follow up singles to ‘Prisoner of War’ under the old business model. Concluding with their cover of ‘Sante Fe’, we’re definitely left wanting for more.   If you’re a fan of The Hollies, Elvis Brothers, Raspberries or The Records (particularly ‘Crashes’), this is a record for you.” – PowerPopNews.com   And for all you 7” vinyl collectors out there, each CD comes with a “Spindle” 45 adaptor attached to the front shrinkwrap as an added bonus!  Nice touch!  GREAT!!
