Featuring "The Rain, The Park, And Other Things," this really isn't half-bad mainstream late-'60s pop, with a heavy Mamas & The Papas fixation. It's not nearly as good as The Mamas & The Papas, of course, and doesn't stand up to in-depth listening. The CD reissue adds bonus tracks of their themes for the movie The Impossible Years and the TV series Love American Style. ~ Richie Unterberger
