Album Notes
For years the only decent Standells reissue available and still one of the best, this volume of Rhino's exemplary Golden Archive reissue series features their usual attention to detail, both in the exquisitely remastered sound--though still as muddy as Boston Harbor, this album's "Dirty Water" has the punch missing from a lot of other reissues--and the informative, well-written liner notes. As always, it's the music which matters most, and the music is undeniable.Under the tutelage of songwriter/producer/mastermind Ed Cobb--who later wrote "Tainted Love," believe it or not--The Standells released at least half a dozen classic snotty punk songs, including the four that kick off this excellent compilation: "Dirty Water," "Riot On Sunset Strip," "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," and "Why Pick On Me." If the other 14 songs don't quite measure to that first stretch, well, neither does anything else.

1 CENT CD: Standells 'Best Of The Standells: Golden'


Condition of CD:  MINT CONDITION!


One review reads '  It was one hit and out for this Los Angeles-based quartet--but what a hit! Written by producer Ed Cobb, "Dirty Water" is all snarl, attitude and a great guitar riff with a pounding backbeat and has become a garage band classic. [Historical note: "Dirty Water" was featured on the original double-LP Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era in 1972. Rolling Stone put this album on their list of 100 best albums. It is now available in its entirety plus three more CDs on the Rhino re-issue Nuggets Box. (It is essential garage rock listening, but I digress...)]

"Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White" maintains the swagger, but brings Larry Tamblyn's Farfisa to the forefront which lacked the bite of Tony Valentino's guitar.

"Why Pick On Me" sounds like they borrowed heavily from Cher's "Bang Bang." "Have You Ever Spent the Night in Jail" is a semi-comical song with a cowbell-driven beat. The horns on "Can't Help But Love You Baby" has the band reaching for R&B territory (and it doesn't work).

Some of the songs approach the gritty sound of "Dirty Water": "Try It" and "Mr. Nobody" with its snarling lead guitar lines, "Barracuda" and its cocky vocal. "All Fall Down" with its backward guitar (a la "Rain")and a guitar feedback fadeout, and the sitar in "Animal Girl" illustrate the Beatles' influence on the band.

The rest is fairly pedestrian. This CD contains some worthwhile music, but also shows why the Standells were unable to maintain their popularity. If "Dirty Water" isn't enough Standells for you, you can't go wrong with this Rhino collection. If it is enough, but you want to hear what other garage bands   '.
