Winnipeg Free Press Review

FOLLOWING The Best of Franklin Records, a collection of long-lost Winnipeg recordings, Super Oldies has dug deeper into the vaults to come up with this two-disc companion piece that unearths more rare gems.

This treasure trove includes hitherto hard-to-find recordings by local legends like The Jury, Fifth, Shondels, Justin Tyme, Eternals, Luvin' Kind, Action, and Pink Plumm (featuring a pre-BTO Fred Turner) among others. Rarest of local recordings by The Crescendos (a.k.a. The 5 AM Event), Lyme, Wiggy Symphony, and Orfans make this a collectors dream. Rick Pearson's "Merilee" is the one that could have been a contender. Included in the package is a full color 32-page booklet chock full of photos, clippings and band bios.

If you want to know why all the fuss about '60s Winnipeg rock, The Shondels "Another Man" and The Luvin' Kind's "That Jungle Sun" say it all. * * * * *
