The Association were simply one of the finest, most beloved, and most commercially successful American vocal groups of the 1960s. Yet a complete singles collection of their golden Warner Bros. & Valiant years (1966-1971) has never been collected. UNTIL NOW!
Although the popular six-man band initially developed a straight-laced, M.O.R. image, they were actually much more dynamic than that. They helped pioneer the new musical genre dubbed 'folk-rock' by Troubadour owner Doug Weston and fused this sound with a sophisticated vocal blend that was on par with The Beach Boys. And contrary to their hop-sack-suited image, they were all spiritual seekers, with one member, Jules Alexander, leaving the band for a pilgrimage to India nearly a year before The Beatles.
The deluxe, double Digipak includes a full-colour booklet with previously unpublished photos, and extensive liner notes featuring track-by-track commentary from original band members Terry Kirkman, Russ Giguere, Larry Ramos, Jules Alexander, Ted Bluechel Jr., and Jim Yester; as well as songwriters P.F. Sloan, Ruthann Friedman, Tandyn Almer, and Dick Addrisi; and producers Bones Howe, Jerry Yester, and others!
