Entertainment Reviews:

Mojo (Publisher) - 3/02, p.120
"...Whether drawing on folk, country, soul, Roaring Twenties or baroque influences, they liked to put the 'shh!' into kitsch....Hostorically they are fascinating....Their lush vocals and elaborate orchestrations are strangely affecting....highly enjoyable..."

The final Harpers Bizarre album before the band split in 1969 (they reunited briefly six years later for the album TIME GOES BY) contains more self-penned songs than their previous collections, and fewer of their trademark baroque arrangement flourishes. Highlights include the agreeably loopy "I Love You, Alice B. Toklas," from the movie of the same name, and the beautiful, country-flavored "Cotton Candy Sandman (Sandman's Coming)." This expanded set also includes bonus versions of Harry Nilsson's "Poly High" and the group's take on gospel composer Thomas Dorsey's "If We Ever Needed the Lord Before."
