An excellent distillation of the Flamin' Groovies' three late-'70s albums for Sire Records, SHAKE SOME ACTION, NOW!! and JUMPIN' IN THE NIGHT--plus the pre-Sire nuggets "Teenage Head" and "Slow Death"--this 24-track compilation distills an uneven but often excellent period in the Groovies' long and checkered career. When the Groovies reappeared in the mid-'70s with Chris Wilson replacing rockabilly-obsessed singer Roy Loney, they repositioned themselves as a throwback to the British Invasion, complete with matching suits and guitarist Cyril Jordan's note-perfect Beatles and Hollies knockoffs.
Hearing them for the first time, you will swear that "Yes It's True" and "I'll Cry Alone" are old Billy J. Kramer B-sides. Covers of '60s originals like "Absolutely Sweet Marie" (a la the Byrds) and the Spector classic "River Deep Mountain High" put Jordan's obsessions into context. Conveniently dispensing with the lesser bits of these three uneven albums, GROOVIES' GREATEST GROOVES is the perfect Groovies document.
