Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 songs Product Information
Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 album for sale by Tokens was released Mar 23, 2004 on the VarŠse Sarabande (USA) label. The title of this compilation is at least partially misleading. To virtually everyone's mind, anything labeled as containing "the very best of the Tokens" would have to include their early-'60s number one hit "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and their 1961 Top 20 single "Tonight I Fell in Love." This CD doesn't have those recordings, and nor for that matter does it have their 1967 Top 40 hit "Portrait of My Love." It focuses almost solely on tracks from 1964-1967, when most of their efforts came out on their own B.T. Puppy label. Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 CD music contains a single disc with 22 songs. ...See Full Description

||A Really Nice CD|
This is a nice compilation of songs by the Tokens. Especially appreciated are the songs, "I Hear Trumpets Blow", "He's In Town", and "Oh Kathy".
By Ed (Jacksonville, Fla.)
||Strange Label Name!!|
A Postscript to my previous review submitted earlier, would you please add the following: B.T. Puppy must be one of the strangest label names to come out of the U.S. !!!
By Graham (Skellingthorpe, Lincolnshire, U.K.)
||Close Harmony At Its Best.|
To any record buyers here in the UK, The Tokens are among the section labelled "One Hit Wonders" for the excellent 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' back in 1961.

Chicago V CD (1972) Top Seller
Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 buy CD music CHICAGO V (from 1972) was in some ways the end of the "old" Chicago, pointing the way towards a smoother, mellower style they'd adopt in the years to come. V still has jazz and progressive elements ("A Hit By Varèse," "Dialogues"), political commentary ("State of the Union"), and melodious, sunny, horn-laden pop (the huge hit "Saturday In The Park"). The playing was still tight and clean, and the vocals still earnest and heartfelt, but a lighter mood began to replace the urgency of the band's late-'60s recordings.
Expanded & remastered. The band's first single-LP album, includes the crossover hit 'Saturday In The Park' and nine more original tracks, plus bonus tracks 'A Song For Richard And His Friends' (studio without vocals), 'Mississippi Delta City Blues' (1st recorded version with scratch vocal) & 'Dialogue (Part I & II)' (Single version). 2002.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.

Pop Hits Collection CD (2003)
Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 CD music Recorded between 1962 & 1967. Includes liner notes by Steve Kolanjian.
Skeeter Davis has had two phases of her career: the first as part of the duo, the Davis Sisters, with Betty Jack Davis (they weren't really sisters, by the way) in the pre-rock & roll era, and the second as a solo Nashville country crossover artist in the 1960s. The Davis Sisters recorded one bona fide classic, "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know," which was a huge hit in 1953, and Skeeter mirrored it with a classic of her own in 1963, the weepy and resigned "The End of the World," which features a perfectly measured vocal from Davis, which manages to overcome the pathos inherent in the lyrics. This collection of solo sides reveals the formula Davis followed pretty clearly, merging plaintive country material with injections of big pop hooks, all sweetened with Nashville strings. Try to pick up a compilation that features a selection of Davis Sisters' songs -- in addition to the solo stuff -- to get a complete picture of this intriguing singer. ~ Steve Leggett
Skeeter's biggest and best "pop" recordings are highlighted in this very special CD. Most tracks appear for the first time since their original release on records! Tracks include A Summer Song, Don't Anybody Need My Love, Don't Let Me Stand In Your Way,

Best of the Five Americans CD (2003)
Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 CD music This is a straightforward, filled-to-the-gills 25-track best-of for the band remembered by most listeners only for its big hits "Western Union" and "I See the Light." Actually, they released a lot of records during the last half of the 1960s that reveal them as a versatile, polished, yet often derivative group. They were best when putting a thumping beat to accomplished harmonies, catchy pop/rock melodies, and rolling high organ playing, as exemplified by "I See the Light" and "Western Union." They never did come up with other songs as catchy as those, and the other songs on this anthology find them combining lots of influences: Midwestern frat rock, Beach Boys and Association harmonies, and British bands like the Beatles and (on "The Losing Game" in particular) the Zombies. Sometimes the derivativeness comes perilously close to imitation. The folk-rock of "Sympathy" almost duplicates the melody of the Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall" in places, "I Know They Lie" is a little-known lightweight Byrds sound-alike, and "Don't Blame Me" sounds like a tough American garage take on the Dave Clark Five. Their small 1967 Top Forty hits "Sound of Love" and "Zip Code" are here, as are two previously unissued songs of minor interest, "You Can't Win" and "Letters, Pictures, Melodies." Incidentally, this is not merely an expanded version of the 20-song best-of (Western Union) issued on same label (Sundazed) in 1989, 13 years before The Best of the Five Americans. Though five songs shorter in length, Western Union has a half dozen tracks that don't show up on The Best of the Five Americans. More surprisingly, the liner notes, while comprehensive in both CD packages, might be preferable in Western Union, which goes into much more extensive detail on specific songs. ~ Richie Unterberger
Few pop smashes can be instantly identified by something as deceptively simple as the 'Dit-dit-dit-dah-dit' staccato keyboard hook introducing the Five Americans' '67 hit 'Western Union.' To celebrate the Sundazed purchase of the entire Abnak tape vault, here's a stomping Five Americans compendium assembled with the band's full participation. With 25 smash tracks, it's the very best of this groovy Dallas garage-frat combo, including chart-toppers like 'Western Union,' 'I See The Light,' 'Sound Of Love,' 'Zip Code,' and memorabilia galore! All tracks recorded 1965-1969. Includes two previously unissued tracks, 'You Can't Win' & 'Letters, Pictures, Melodies'. 2003.

Minx CD (1970)
Very Best of the Tokens 1964-1967 buy CD music THE MINX SOUNDTRACK is The Cyrkle's unofficial, rare "third" album and includes 8 bonus tracks.
Somehow the Cyrkle, one of the more clean-cut pop-rock groups of the late 1960s, ended up doing the soundtrack to the obscure X-rated movie The Minx. (Although it was originally intended as more of a B-movie, nude scenes were added to generate controversy.) As such it qualifies as something of the lost Cyrkle album by a band that only put out two proper LPs. It's not the "great" lost Cyrkle album, because the songs, penned by the group's Tom Dawes and Don Dannemann, varied between innocuous period late-'60s pop-rock and unremarkable soundtrack filler. The requirements of a soundtrack did require versatility, though, and the songs varied from competent harmony pop-rock with debts to the Beatles and Beach Boys ("Squeeze Play," originally intended as the title theme) to summery bossa nova ("The Minx"), forced quasi-bubblegumish jocularity ("Murray the Why"), a pastiche of sentimental '50s rock ("The Party"), trendy sitar-rock psychedelia ("Nicole"), the Kinks-ish "Something Special," a Duane Eddy-ish instrumental ("Walter's Riff"), and instrumentals suitable for dated incidental background and chase scene music with a late-'60s flavor. The CD reissue adds eight bonus tracks, all but one previously unreleased, among them the "film versions" of several songs from the movie and instrumentals that again seem to have been intended for the incidental soundtrack mood. Most curious of all of these is an instrumental version of "Kites," which was, with lyrics and vocal, a big 1967 hit in the UK for Simon Dupree & the Big Sound. Also here, though unlisted on the sleeve, is a cheesy original commercial (or soundtrack to a trailer) for the film. ~ Richie Unterberger
