Love Is Strange [Bear Family]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
This two-CD, 60-song ! set includes many alternate takes and a fair amount of previously unreleased material, spanning 1955 to 1964. A lot of the obscurities are in the close-harmony, doo wop vein, and are disappointingly short on verbal sparring and scorching Baker guitar. Lovingly packaged, this will delight hardcore specialists; casual fans should stick with the RCA compilation.
