Description by

The Outsiders had the inside track to the top of the charts in the late '60s. This Cleveland bar band scored their biggest hit "Time Won't Let Me" in 1966. This compilation features the best of their work; you may recognize the voice of lead singer Sonny Geraci - he later led the band Climax ("Precious & Few").

Although they really only had a three-year recording career, Cleveland's the Outsiders managed at least two enduring pop hits, 1966's "Time Won't Let Me" and "Respectable," and churned out four fairly decent albums for Capitol Records, each of which shows a sharply defined garage pop sound with artful use of horns and other suitable arrangement effects. This set has everything essential, including the above hits and near misses like "Girl in Love." ~ Steve Leggett

Rating 4.5 Outsiders were way ahead... Music Lover: from PEORIA, AZ US -- June, 27, 2011

This collection is well worth the wait and the money. The many selections show the absolute veratility of this Cleveland band of the mid-to-late '60s. They were early in combining horns, strings, etc. to rocking hits, soft ballads, and in-between ventures. If mid-60's variety is your thing, this works well.
