Re: “Attractive Nuisance #1: The Raiders

Excellent review, but as you pointed out, not the definitive album of this act. Go to any of the mid-1960s gems--primarily "Spirit of '67"--and that IS what Paul Revere and the Raiders really were. The "Indian Reservation" single's success was completely out of left field, Columbia was starting to carefully nurture Mark Lindsay's solo career--which pretty much fizzled, save a few decent singles--and I think the Raiders were a bit of an afterthought when this single and album came out. But the strength of the single bought them a couple more years at Columbia and as an entity that at least had to be listened to. But that aside, this is a "Raiders" LP, not a "Paul Revere and the Raiders" LP, and quite frankly, it suffers in comparison with those great records this act put out from 1965-1967. Not a bad effort, mind you, but not the one (Paul Revere and the) Raiders album you would want as a "desert island" disk.
