Meet The Romantics!
May 24th, 2004 at 2:06pm
 
OK. This is what I decided. I will shuck all responsibility and pass the buck by leaving it in Bookies hands. I really don't think that Wally and Mike would object to some of the people here getting a copy of this, but I will leave it up to Bookies to tell me what she thinks. Bookies' copy goes out in the mail this week. Again, I  just called this compilation "Meet The Romantics" since I kind of consider it their first album. ALL of the tracks, studio and live, were recorded in the late 70s, before they recorded anything for Nemperor. And now, the track listing!   
                       Tell It To Carrie
                        Runnin' Away
                        First In Line
                        Let's Swing
                        You Really Got A Hold Of My Heart
                            (Jimmy on lead vocals)
                         Little White Lies
                         I Can't Tell You Anything
                         Stick Around
                         No Responsibilities
                             (Mike on lead vocals)
                         Stop Foolin' Around
                          Gimme One More Chance
                          I Hope That You're Satisfied
                          Little White Lies
                             (earliest version)
                          I Can't Tell You Anything
                              (earliest version)
           
                          BONUS LIVE TRACKS

                          Tallahassee Lassie
                          Hippy Hippy Shake
                          Liar Liar
                          Runnin' Away
                          You Can't Sit Down
                           Gimme One More Chance
                           Tell It To Carrie
                           Take Me Out Of The Rain
                           Stone Pony
                           What I Like About You
                           Till I See You Again

OK kids. That's it. These early studio tracks have the same raw edge and feel as 61/49. The live tracks, in particular the cover tunes, are raw and spirited and ooze with energy. I will leave it up to Bookies to give a complete review after she gets her copy, which should be no later than this coming weekend. While the overall quality is excellent, there is the occaisional bit of tape hiss or slight imperfections here and there due to the fact that these tapes are over 25 years old and may have slightly deteriorated over time, but to be honest, when I listen to this stuff, I don't even notice anything but the music. To me, this is the Romantics in their early raw and raunchy glory, the way they were meant to sound.  Again, it has much the same feel to me as 61/49. One little note about  "Little White Lies" and "I Can't Tell You Anything" which are noted as "earliest versions". These versions of these two songs were the very first Spider single which was critisized by some as being "too raw" and lacking fidelity. I LOVE these versions, which sound like something straight from the garage!  Just plain raunchy and full of fun.   Of course, all of these recordings are the original lineup of Wally, Mike, Jimmy and Rich.

Sorry bookies, But since you pretty much run this place, I thought I would take the easy way out and  throw it all on your shoulders. Really though, I just kind of wanted your opinion on this whole thing. I will give Wally a call as well when he gets back and talk to him about it, but I really don't think he would mind if some of the trustworthy people here who are longtime devoted fans got a copy of this stuff. What do you think?

Yo Bookies. One more thing. I did not mean to imply that I was leaving it up to you to make copies and send them out. If we go ahead with this thing, I will handle that end of it.

oldfriend, i think it is a GREAT idea!!!
i just didnt want to be the one to make any decisions that would come back to haunt legally/morally or otherwise.  you were right the first time, i think it is up to wally and mike.

Iris, either e-mail me your address or send me a private message. I would really like to get everyone a copy who has been here a while. Again, I really don't think Wally would mind. I know for a fact that a few people from the old days did have a copy of the 8 song demo, and a few of the tunes were released locally on spider records and even nationally on bomp, so it's not like this stuff came out of some vault. It's funny, because guess who else is asking me for a copy of this stuff because he does not have it. RICH!!!!!

i am on about the fifth time listening to it all the way through.  it seems to sound better each time.  i may be way too biased to actually critique it.  i will attempt to though after a few more listens.  so far, it has left me speechless!

To me,there is nothing cooler than hearing alternate out-takes and unrealeased material.I would also love to hear this.If the guys okay this,maybe we could give something back to say "Thanks". Maybe make a donation to a charity or a cause the guys in the band believe in,or something like that.Just throwing out some ideas...........

i feel especially honored and privileged that oldfriend shared it.

ok, some thoughts come to my mind while listening to these tracks:

why weren't the Romantics the "next" Beatles?

why did the original line-up have to change?

Ok kids, here it is.  My long awaited review of “Meet the Romantics”.  Before I continue, let me offer a couple of disclaimers here:
I am not a musician, not musically inclined, not musically literate and probably more often than not, musically incorrect.  
I am however, a fan of the Romantics almost literally since day one.   I doubt that this review will be totally unbiased and without prejudice since it is my belief that the Romantics were one of the greatest bands to ever come along.
With that said, on to my review:
Tell It To Carrie—excellent choice as the first song on this cd.  This version is a little rawer (is that a word?) and edgier than the later “Carrie” that resurfaced on the first album.  I like this version, it places more emphasis on the back-up vocals which I always thought were a vital ingredient to their sound.
Runnin’ Away-ok, I must admit, this is one of my favorites on this cd.  The opening right away brought to mind a song by the Dovell’s called You Can’t Sit Down.  Oldfriend obviously recognized this connection or the band did because it follows Runnin’ Away on the live tracks.  Excellent song.
Let’s Swing-this is such a fun song.  I don’t know that I would completely call this in the Romantics genre.  It reminded me a lot of 50’ish music.
You Really Got a Hold of My Heart-well, what can I say about this one?  Jimmy Marinos on vocals I think speaks volumes.  
First In Line, Little White Lies, I Can’t Tell You Anything, Gimme One More Chance (all versions)-ok folks, if I had to pick songs that best exemplified the sound of the early Romantics and the true founding of “garage” sound, these would be them. This First in Line seems much faster than the later version.  I like this version.
I Can’t Tell You Anything features the thundering drums of Jimmy and to me, there is such a tribal sound to his drum kit in this early stuff.  This is one thing I miss about Jimmy’s presence.  Not to take anything away from Brad or Clem but Jimmy just seemed to be able to “tweak” that little something extra into his drumming.  Gimme One More Chance (1st  version)  seems to be a little slower in tempo than the later version but this one has a  definite “raunchy” sound to it.  Little White Lies features once again those back-up vocals that added so much to the sound of the Romantics.
No Responsibilities- I LOVE this song.  Why do I feel like New Kinda Pain is almost a distant cousin of this song?Mike on vocals just adds a different dimension to the sound altogether and really makes me wonder why he doesn’t showcase his talent more often.
Stick Around-Quite honestly, I did not know this song.  It had a “Beatles” feel though.
Stop Foolin’ Around-this is another of my favorites.  It has a sound that is somewhat of a combination of the early Yardbirds and the Knack. I hear a little Tinker, Tailor influence on this track.
I Hope That You Are Satisfied-this is another one that I didn’t recall.  When I first listened to this, I must admit, this was probably my least favorite of all.  Now about 20 times later, it has grown on me and I truly appreciate the guitar work of Mike and the bass work of Rich.

In a nutshell, I think the Romantics were about 30 years ahead of the times creatively speaking and in my opinion, there is no garage sound today that can exude such raw, unrefined, pure, natural rock & roll as Meet the Romantics!
Great job oldfriend!

To me, the only other album that has such a raw, pure, unrefined, natural  rock and roll feel right now is 61/49. I see some similarities between the two in the raw edged gritty sound.

Here's the deal. Some copyright issues are being looked into, and once the green light is given, people here can expect a copy. Of course, if you copy it for anyone else, some of Tony Soprano's boys will come by and break a few bones.

I hope those copyright issues are falling by the wayside.  We are still drooling for this compilation!  Oldfriend, do you have any updates?

Maybe for Christmas kids. I already have run off several extra copies and I really don't think that this would be a problem for Wally or Mike after all these years. I am sure that most people here are trustworthy. Also, since I obviously like to doodle with things like this, I am working on another little project just for fun which is a mono "remix" of 61/49. Since this album sounds so 60s British Invasion and most of those records were in mono, I wanted to see how this would sound in mono. While it is of course not a true mono mix (since I don't have master tapes), there are ways to get a mono mix out of the stereo. Plus, it will include bonus tracks which will be the acoustic "demos" of songs from the album (really just the acoustic versions that were performed live on WDET) and the complete "Made In Detroit" which after listening to again recently has made me appreciate that EP even more. That thing really rocks and some of those songs have a similar feel to 61/49. I have a blast doing this kind of stuff so humor me.

Pirate, if you put them out too early, the cookies'll get eaten and the beer'll get sucked down well before St. Nick even gets near the neighborhood.

This is truly good news about Meet the Romantics -- I've been breathlessly awaiting it -- and Oldfriend's other cool project. (Oh, and please tell Santa I'm sorry I drank his beer.)
