The Addrisi Brothers had a minor hit in 1959 with the Everly Brothers knock-off "Cherrystone," but their performing career didn't take off until the early '70s, when they landed upon an appealingly slick Californian folk-pop song. Named after their number 25 hit from 1972, the Collectables compilation We've Got to Get It On Again presents all of their 1972 album of the same name, adding three tracks -- "Words and Music," "I Can Count On You," "Lifetime" -- which inexplicably function as bookends on the disc instead of being added to the end of the disc. The placing of the tracks doesn't really matter, however, since the Addrisi Brothers were hardly album artists. They were songwriters, with each song as important as the next. They were competent songwriters, crafting inoffensive, ingratiating soft-rock and fans of that style will find a few gems here, even if only a handful of songs -- such as the title track and "Never My Love," which the brothers wrote for the Association in the '60s -- make a lasting impression. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
