Paul Revere and the Raiders scored seven chart hits between the fall of 1965 and the winter of 1967, and all of them -- "Steppin' Out," "Just Like Me," "Kicks," "Hungry," "The Great Airplane Strike," "Good Thing," and "Ups and Downs" -- were included among the 11 tracks on the group's first hits collection. Also included were "Louie, Louie," the Raiders' first Columbia single, and its follow-up, "Louie, Go Home," a B-side instrumental, plus the newly penned "Legend of Paul Revere," which told the band's story.

Thus, the album traced the band from its beginnings as a Northwest club band to its reign as an L.A. pop
ock success. There would be more hits, but this brief compilation it originally ran under 30 minutes contained the essence of the Raiders' most successful period and indeed marked the end of the band's lineup, as the rhythm section split to form another group, leaving Revere and lead singer Mark Lindsay to recruit a new edition of the Raiders. [The 2000 CD reissue on Columbia/Legacy adds four bonus tracks: "Him or Me -- What's It Gonna Be?" their biggest post-1966 hit of the 1960s, "I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone" which predated the Monkees' version, "Action," and "Peace of Mind."]

    Paul Revere & The Raiders Greatest Hits-A Big Hit

    Paul Revere & The Raiders were the most visible American group of the mid-1960's, thanks in part to having the good fortune of being part of Dick Clark's television stable of shows. The Raiders, who first recorded in 1960, seized the opportunity and grabbed the American market by the lapels, charting 24 singles from 1961-1973. Most of their biggest hits are heard here, including Kicks, Hungry, Just Like Me and Good Thing, which all cracked the top 10 singles charts. Paul Revere & The Raiders can probably best be termed a fun American band. This album, which hit #9 on the charts in the summer of 1967, is a great place to hear what all the fun was about.
