Not Too Old to Start Cryin': The Lost 1966 Masters [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2008 release. San Francisco's pre-eminent pop-masters The Mojo Men are well known to mid-60s aficionados, thanks to both some Garage-rocking sides for Autumn and the dulcet baroque experiments of their Reprise years. The 24 previously unreleased titles featured on Not Too Old to Start Cryin' fall stylistically between these two schools, yet they may well be amongst the best studio recordings of their entire career. These sessions were held in the year preceding The Mojo Men's chart breakthrough in early 1967 with 'Sit Down I Think I Love You', and consist principally of original material. The Mojos were known for their quality songwriting and tight, self-contained arrangements, not to mention a powerhouse vocal team in bass player Jim Alaimo and the drumming Mojo Woman, Jan Errico. Big Beat.
