HASH(0x89d93468) étoiles sur 5 The GRASS ROOTS Pop Sound Kicks into High Gear! 8 décembre 2005
Par DL Masters - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
First time on CD! And it's a very limited run so obtain while you can.

We've been waiting forever for the non-compilation Grass Roots CD's to see the light of digital day (only 3 others so far) and Hip-O Select has done a great job with this one.

It was here on this album that the formerly folkie/pop group completed the transition to punchy pop. Given the full Jimmie Haskell horn treatment and radio friendly pop production fourishes, Steve Barri turns The Grass Roots into an irresistable hit making machine. And it's not just the 3 Top 40 hits that shine here.

(1. I'd Wait a Million Years 2. Heaven Knows 3. Walkin' Thru The Country)

There are other delights that could easily have been hits, like "Out Of This World" and "Back To Dreamin' Again." New keyboardist Dennis Provisor makes his debut and his contributions are noteworthy, although he would become more of a presence later. He's got 2 songs here but on the next project "More Golden Grass" he would write or co-write about half the album. Provisor's soulful pipes added a new dimension to the group on both lead and shadow vocals.

This group had 14 Top 40 hits and their Best Of compilations always sold well but their regular album releases were marginal sellers at best. And that's a shame because there is lots more to enjoy BEYOND THE HITS if you like 60s/70s feel good pop as "Leaving It All Behind" proves. This is a very satisfying listen from start to finish and there are 2 or 3 essentials here that didn't make the cut for the excellent Grass Roots "Anthology" on Rhino (now out of print).

Here's hoping that more of the Grass Roots catalog will come to CD. There are still several titles that are begging for release. Especially:

"Move Along" (probably their best album)

"More Golden Grass"

"Lovin' Things"

It would be nice to have the other two obscure albums as well,

("Alotta Mileage" and "Grass Roots") but don't hold your breath on that.

HASH(0x89d932f4) étoiles sur 5 The Grass Roots at their best... 2 septembre 2009
Par dwieselq - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
As far as I'm concerned this is the best album ever released by the band as they were at the peak of their sound. There are some truly great songs on this release that never became popular, the best being --and probably the best song by the band-- is "Out Of This World", I can't believe it was never a hit.

As for the quality of this release, it's pretty much excellent, but I have to agree with another reviewer in that it is a little muddy (not much though) in that it could have used more high end and less bass.., I lowered the low end starting at 80 Hz to the bottom (levels 0 dB to -1.5 dB) and raised the high end starting at 4 Hz to the top (0 dB to 2.5 dB). Any more then that and it starts sounding tinny and unnatural. Of course EQ is subjective so some purists could argue that the remastering of this CD is very faithful to the EQ levels of the original recording.

In terms of other quality "Grass Roots" CD's, there aren't many...I have about a dozen and, after comparing all of them through Sennheiser headphones, found the following to be the only ones worth having:

- the remastered "Leavin' It All Behind" CD (this review)
- Rhino's "Anthology" CD's 1 & 2
- the "Feelings/Let's Live For Today" 2-on-1 Repertoire CD
- the "Let's Live For Today" Rev-ola CD
- and finally, and surprisingly, MCA's "All Time Greatest Hits" CD, which I think sounds better (fuller, better EQ) than the revered Rhino "Anthology" (which, though it does sound very good, has a little too much high end for my taste, and, sounds somewhat flat and lacks midrange).

HASH(0x89da59fc) étoiles sur 5 GREAT POP CD--BUT THE AUDIO HERE COULD BE BETTER 5 août 2007
Par charlie bear - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Good News:
One of the better Grass Roots releases with plenty of satisfying songs beyond the hits. First time to CD for top drawer songs like "Melinda Love", "I'm Living For You Girl", "Out Of This World" and "Back To Dreaming Again". Any one of which could have been another hit. Dennis Provisor makes his worthwhile addition to the lineup here and his soulful pipes on lead and shadow vocals add much to their sound.
This is feel good sunshine pop at it's best.

The Not as Good News:
This is a limited run release with 5,000 marked copies. As of July 07 mine is 3600. The pricetag is high for Hip-O Select releases and for the money you expect optimum results. However HOS spent a lot of their money on the fancy packaging and evidently not as much on the sound. If the budget was tight, why not get the audio right? For most of us, if forced to choose one or the other we'd rather have it re-mastered.
As is, the entire CD is a bit muddy. Heavy handed on the bass and the high end is somewhat dull. However it can be remedied by spending some adjustment time with your EQ. But the typical person probably won't take the time or have the savvy to mess with it. And of course if you're listening on a portable player you don't even have your own EQ anymore thanks to those geniuses who think they know more than we do.

HASH(0x89da5f24) étoiles sur 5 "FINALLY! Remasters Of The GRASS ROOTS Albums......!" 6 avril 2016
Par John H. McCarthy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Fans of The GRASS ROOTS have had slim pickings since the dawn of the CD era, tons of "best of's" both good (Anthology 1965-1975, The Complete Dunhill/ABC Hit Singles and bad (too many to mention), but the only legitimate releases of their albums over the years have been 1994's Where Were You When I Needed You, 1995's Let's Live for Today / Feelings and the 2006 Leaving It All Behind. There were some bogus releases featuring two albums on one CD, but they should be avoided at all costs. Universal Music Japan has finally opened what hopefully will be the floodgates with superb mini-LP cardboard sleeve SHM-CD remasters with bonus tracks. For those unfamiliar, SHM-CDs are just regular CDs manufactured with superior material, playable on all CD drives. So far they've released Where Were You When I Needed You, Let's Live for Today+2, Lovin' Things+2, Move Along+2, and of course this, 'Leaving It All Behind+3.' All are limited releases, so don't delay too long! The tune-stack & credits are:

1. I'm Livin' For You Girl* 2:32
2. Back To Dreamin' Again* 2:37
3. Out Of This World*# 2:48
4. Melinda Love* 2:38
5. Don't Remind Me# 2:33 (B-side of Track 7)
6. Take Him While You Can** 3:55
7. Heaven Knows* 2:26 (Billboard #24, Cashbox #13)
8. Walking Through The Country** 3:46 (BB #44, CB #30)
9. Something's Comin' Over Me* 2:48 (B-side of Track 13)
10. Truck Drivin' Man*** 3:03 (B-side of Track 8)
11. Wait A Million Years*# 3:21 (BB #15, CB #12)
12. Baby Hold On 2:34 (BB #35, CB #25)
13. Come On And Say It 2:25 (BB #61, CB #39)
14. Temptation Eyes 2:35 (BB #15, CB #16)
the band:
Rick Coonce (Mr. Rhythm) - drums, lead vocal***
Warren Entner - guitar, lead vocals#

Dennis Provisor - keyboards, lead vocals**
Produced by Steve Barri
Horns & Strings Arranged by Sid Feller
Horns on Tracks 7, 10, 12, 13 & 14 Arranged by Jimmie Haskell

The GRASS ROOTS saga mirrored that of many '60's groups, for starters the band began as a studio concoction of songwriter/producers Steve Barri and P.F. Sloan. After having a massive hit with Barry McGuire's "Eve Of Destruction", they signed San Francisco band The BEDOUINS to be the "face" of their studio creations. Their first release was a semi-hit cover of Bob Dylan's "Ballad Of A Thin Man'" re-monikered "Mr. Jones (Ballad Of A Thin Man), the next, "Where Were You When I Needed You." Sloan sang lead on the demo, backed by studio musicians, for the actual 45 his vocals were replaced by The BEDOUINS' Bill Fulton, which slowly cracked the Top 30. Afterwards, for a bevy of reasons The BEDOUINS left for San Francisco, soon to be replaced by three members of The 13th FLOOR (NOT the ELEVATORS!). The three, Creed Bratton, Warren Entner and Rick Coones were paired with a musician they found advertising for work, Rob Grill. They would remain the first classic GRASS ROOTS line-up until 1969. After a couple of disappointing singles, the band finally hit paydirt with "Let's Live For Today" (BB #8, CB #5), with the similarly titled album reaching #75. After their next chart single, "Things I Should've Said" (BB #23, CB #36) Sloan, longing for his own independence, generously encouraged the band to write their own material. Unfortunately, all good deeds don't go unpunished, and the resulting singles and album, 'Feelings,' failed to chart. With that debacle, Barri sat the group down and told them they were never going to make it as a band without having hits to get them going again and suggested a pop direction. Fortuitously the song they decided to record, a little known single titled "Midnight Confessions," along with their 360° turn from folk-rock into Motown-influence pop, reversed their fortunes and gave them their highest charting hit......

Unfortunately, agreeing to basically become hired hands began to frustrate Creed Bratton, before and after the release of their fourth studio album, 'Lovin' Things.' He complained that the band was being shut out of extra royalties by not being allowed to write some of their own material. Creed was also tired of the band's pop direction, with critics attacking the group's creditability no matter how good the hits were. This came to a head after a disastrous appearance at the Fillmore West in April 1969, when the "slightly inebriated" Bratton was asked to leave the band. He was replaced by Dennis Provisor on keyboards and vocals. Bratton went solo and later pursued an acting carrier (more on that later)......

'Leaving It All Behind' was the bands fifth album (not counting the 'Golden Grass' best of) and the second of their two 1969 releases. The album reached #36 in the charts, the highest showing for any GRASS ROOTS non-compilation album. It's another strong album with no filler, again, if you like their hits, you'll like this album. With standout tracks like the strong opener "I'm Livin' For You Girl" and "Back To Dreaming Again," deep cuts like the should've-been-hit "Melinda Love" and a bevy of chart hits, "Heaven Knows," the CHICAGO-ish "Walking Through The Country" and "I'd Wait A Million Years" there is no where to go but up. Even Rick Coonce's left-field country pastiche "Truck Drivin' Man" adds more charm. Provisor's keyboards give the material a thicker sound, and he's a decent vocalist as well. Fans of the band consider this grouping the 2nd classic GRASS ROOTS line-up. What's ironic about the album probably incensed Bratton when it was released, seven of the original album's songs are written or co-written by the band; Grill has 3, Entner, 2, Provisor, 2, and Coonce 1! Whatever he may or may not thought, Bratton didn't do too bad for himself after leaving the group. He went solo but soon got the acting bug, which eventually led to a full-time carrier. Later in life Creed even became a pop culture celebrity for portraying a fictional version of himself on the hit comedy The Office......

'Leaving It All Behind's mini-LP sleeve is an exact copy of the original LP's gate-fold jacket and is a better reproduction than the 2006 Hip-O Select release. The remastering is excellent and an improvement as well, worth every penny of it's unfortunately high price. There's a booklet in Japanese, but all the song lyrics are in English. The only thing wrong is for some reason they forgot to reproduce the credits inside the gate-fold jacket. Maybe they weren't on the Japanese version? Let's hope Universal Japan reissues remastered versions of 'Feelings' and 'Alotta' Mileage,' then the classic GRASS ROOTS catalog will finally be available on legitimate CDs. The late Rob Grill's 'Uprooted' solo album would be great as well, hopefully we won't have to wait another million years for their release......

One complaint I have about most recent Japanese reissues from the Universal Music Group are the CD label sides. In the past if you bought an expensive Japanese CD you could be assured it would come with a nice reproduction of the original label. Not any more. Now you're lucky if the CD label side at least has a color, most are just silver like the playing side with standard black lettering. Even expensive SHM-CDs in mini-LP sleeves and SHM-CD SETS are being released this way. The older James Brown CD issues had a dull black and silver Polydor label repro, but it was better than nothing, on these latest reissues that's what you get...nothing. Considering the cost of some, it's a sin! I've sent e-mails complaining, not sure if it does any good, but it doesn't hurt to try. Here's the address: info@umea.co.jp

HASH(0x89da5f3c) étoiles sur 5 This Grass Roots GEM finally makes it to CD... 4 juin 2006
Par J. Brent Bailey II - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Finally, this GREAT LP by The Grass Roots is available on CD...

"Leaving It All Behind" is loaded with some great songs... not only 3 of The Grass Roots major hits, Wait A Million Years, Heaven Knows, and Walking Through The Country... but some of their best pop songs, like Out Of This World, I'm Living For You Girl, Melinda Love... This LP was also the start of Dennis Provisors history with the band... Dennis was the most prolific song writer of the band...

This CD is great and hopefully only the start of other GREAT Grass Roots lps being released on CD... like: "Move Along"

"More Golden Grass", "Lovin' Things", "Alotta Mileage" and "Golden Grass"...
