Description by

Critical favorites Music Machine are one of the most underappreciated legends of Garage Rock. This L.A. rock quintet had their biggest hit in 1966 with "Talk Talk", which rose to #15 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart. This CD is a real treat. It contains some of the best nuggets of the Psychedelic era.

Product Description:

The Music Machine includes: Sean Bonniwell.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
This album contains all 12 tracks from the Music Machine's 1966 debut album, (Turn On) The Music Machine (Original Sound 5015), including their two chart singles, "Talk Talk" and "The People in Me," plus both sides of both of their third and fourth singles, "Double Yellow Line"/"Absolutely Positive" and "I've Loved You"/"The Eagle Never Hunts the Fly." This is the group's entire output for Original Sound Records; they switched to Warner Bros. in 1967 and changed their personnel and their name to Bonniwell's Music Machine. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Sean Bonniwell dominates the proceedings with his sonorous voice, whether the band is playing originals like the unforgettable garage rock classic "Talk Talk" or such covers as the Beatles' "Taxman" and fellow garage dwellers ? & the Mysterians' "96 Tears." The playing is rudimentary, but more disciplined than that of many of the rock bands that came into existence in the mid-'60s, and Bonniwell's songwriting is sufficiently varied that it is regrettable the group didn't get much of a chance beyond its initial hit. ~ William Ruhlmann

Very Best of The Music Machine - Turn On Music Lover: from Bellevue, OH US -- February, 4, 2007

An album (CD) like this I haven't heard in quite awhile - meaning able to listen to the whole CD from end-to-end while its pitching an interesting theme - Turn On your attention span!

What shows was happening at its time as it fits an area that should not be forgotten. This CD comes with informative accompanying text describing one "black glove worn by each member" and much more.

Definitely it is worth keeping.

A surprise! 5 STARS
