Liner Note Author: Stephen Kaplan.
OK, this is a little weird--an Ohio Express compilation which includes neither of their big hits, "Yummy Yummy Yummy" and "Chewy Chewy." A companion volume to Collectables' GOLDEN CLASSICS compilation--there's no overlap between the two--this budget-priced, 10-track SUPER K KOLLECTION compiles B-sides and album tracks by the flagship band of the Kasenetz-Katz bubblegum brigade.
The collection is a little spotty, but in some ways it's actually more interesting than GOLDEN CLASSICS. Hearing the baldfaced way that Kastenetz and Katz rip off both Ray Charles and the Strangeloves on the opening "The Right Time Is the Night Time" shows just how quickly and cheaply songwriters and producers worked in those days. Somewhat surprisingly, the majority of songs here, particularly "No Time At All," the Monkees-like "I Could Kiss Marie," and the genre anthem "Bubblegum Music," are pretty terrific fluff.
